  1. Ciao Guest, ALERT FOR Store purchases - riding season is here, so we know everyone wants it yesterday. However, lead times are long and many things are sold out or back-ordered, and there isn't much we can do to rush anything. Always best to buy off Season when things are in stock. Also, there are many seasonal holidays this time of year, both here and in Europe (particularly the Italian August Holiday month), so please be patient! We aren't Amazon. We do our best to get things out as quickly as possible, and we also aren't in control of things like customs & weather delays, etc. Please note GuzziTech and the GTM Store is largely a ONE man operation. Requests for phone calls will be deleted. We are online only. Orders are currently being shipped once or twice a week. You can always sign into the online Store system to check the status. Please refrain if at all possible about emailing for an update; If you must ask for order info, please reply on the actual order email. You will get shipping info when it goes out via our online Store system (check your Spam folder), and if you want to cancel your order, please notify us direct email (do not post or use the Forum) and allow 7-10 business days for a reply BEFORE OR JUST disputing the charge. We don't want your money if we can't deliver. Special order items are subject to a 15-20% cancellation fee. Thanks for your understanding and support.

Found a low mileage flat tappet 8v for cheap in another state. Buy it?

    I found a flat tappet Griso with 3k miles in another state for a low price. Unfortunately it is a C kit model. This leads me to multiple questions:

    1. Should the bike be OK at mileage that low, or did some flat tappet Grisos die that young?
    2. What are the odds Piaggio covers the rollerizing kit on a 8-9 year old Griso?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Answer to 1 is the damage has already started. Just a matter of degree. I did a Stelvio with half that mileage and the wear was evident. For 2 If there are service records on the bike they may very well cover the parts, but labor will be on you. To be on the safe side, figure the cost of the rollerazition, parts and labor, when calculating what you are willing to pay for the bike.

    Thanks for the feedback. Based on the VIN the bike is a 2011, not a 2010 as the bike said in the ad, though it was purchased in December of 2010. Once the 8v arrives I can inspect the inside of the valve cover to verify.
