  2. Ciao Guest, We've completed the split of this website from our custom bike builds and products to our sister site; GTMotoCycles.com. You may need a new username and password to get into the new GTM Store system - pending and past order info is available there. GuzziTech.com is now a secure site (https), and may require you to sign in again using your same password. We are back to our origins here with the Forum and Resources only. As always, zero tolerance on personal attacks and off-site links to other Forums or competing products. Note there's decades of hands-on Guzzi-experience on this site, that give endless amounts of their time for free - be courteous. For those who are new here, the owner of this site (Todd - GT-Rx) has been immersed in Guzzis since 1999. He's raced and wrenched for two-thirds of his life, both Pro dirt-track and road-race, and contributed to Cycle World Magazine 2000-2007. He began Guzzi dyno performance modifying and fuel tuning in 2001, and has been wrenching them full time since 2007. His GT MotoCycles Performance and Service workshop has been open for ~4 years in Orange, CA. We do not have a phone number for this site or GTM, we're online only... do not ask us to call you. Click on the Service tab above for more info or to book an appointment -- it is not a retail shop to visit. If you're in L.A., you can come sample our work with our rental fleet - click the image link above. In a few short years GuzziTech.com will hit the 20 year mark of providing advice and tech tips for free.

    Looks alright. Air filter won't be dirty, just blow it off. You want to change the gearbox(6 speed) oil(85W90). Some change the rear oil to get break-in bits out, service schedule doesn't call for it though.

    Yes, which is a bit of a PITA (Joe) as you have to remove the rear wheel to get to the drain and fill plugs. I recommend waiting until the first tire change. If the Dunlop came stock on your bike, likely within 3500-4k miles.
    Just note @Joe Chandler -- Guzzis are a bit of a unique machine and probably really should land in someone's hands who's familiar with them. They aren't your basic Japanese machine and things can go south if not done right.

    Okay thank you, I’m just a bit nervous the dealer is going to charge me an arm and a leg. With that being said I’d rather not screw anything up since it’s still under warranty. Sorry for posting the other company’s merchandise, didn’t mean to break the rules.

    Guzzis are growing increasingly complex, so likely worth it on a high $ Italian bike. Call and ask them what they charge. Should be ~2.5 hours + fluids/parts. Sometimes good to give your money to a good dealer whom you might need for warranty work down the road. No worries on the post.
