    Hello from Texas! Can't tell you how excited I am to own this gorgeous bike. I need some help. My Griso was purchased without a headlight or the assembly that holds the bucket. Previous owner couldn't find it, had a number plate in its spot. Could someone tell me what year Grisos would interchange with my 2012 model? Thx!

    Go to a parts manual. If the other years have the same part numbers they will fit.

    Looked up 07's & 14's. Brackets are the same for all years from beginning to end. 1100 & 1200 are same.
    On the bucket different part #'s, could be just color.

    Congrats and welcome to the GT Forum & Guzzi Famiglia. Hope you'll add your info to the Registry here; https://www.guzzitech.com/forums/threads/griso-registry-picture-thread-add-your-bike.1098/

    There are color differences between the years (silver or black), so either I can help you get them if you want them new (or I might have some used if you rather), or of course you can ring your local dealer and they will be of help. Then there's always FleBay also.

    Think you have your answer(s), but permit me to add one word of caution, having BTDT with (re)installing a headlight on my Griso.

    Be VERY -- I say again VERY -- careful with the (POS) plastic bucket or you will find it a difficult repair or, failing that, an expensive part to rplace.

    The OEM bucket is plastic. The fasteners that keep the bucket in place run thru the bracket assembly and into metal threads glued into the bucket.

    There are particular issues if all the holes line up and the fasteners' threads mesh smoothly into bucket. That may happen for you; if so, put more in the offering plate this Sunday. :giggle:

    But, if not -- or as is very likely if you are installing a w/s -- you will probably encounter tension as you torque down the bucket's fasteners. Here be dragons. :(:banghead::swear:

    Best wishes for miles of smiles with your Griso.

    Bill

    P.S. Have to run to errands, so no time to see if you have already addressed this issue, but 2012 8v's are on the cusp of flatties & rollers, so trust you have looked into that i$$ue.

    Thanks for all the replies everyone. She is going to be a winter project. Here are some photos.
    - I need a headlight solution.
    - Rear brake light solution.
    - Something to hold my instrument panel.
    - I have a couple of Ducatis and plan on taking my Guzzi to my tech for service. (It appears that valves should be looked at every 7k miles?)

    Thanks again!

    As Dilliw said, if it has flat tappets you need to address that.
    Once roller tappets are in, while you do have to check the valves on a regular basis there is probably not a motorcycle out there with easier valves to check and adjust. It is as easy as valve adjustments get.
    For my Daytona, when I removed the stock fairing and headlight I bought a twin headlight set up and made some simple brackets to mount it to the fork tubes using some quality stainless steel clamps. I lined the inside of the clamps with fiberglass heat wrap to keep it from scratching the forks. The brackets I made also mount the turnsignals.
