    Hello all, I have just purchased a 1992 Moto Guzzi 750 Targa and she is lovey and will keep her, Can anyone say if parts are plentyful or will I have difficulties.
    The only issue I have right now is that with the clutch fully in, I only have to release the lever a fraction and she's away, is there any way of making the biting point a bit higher in the range.
    Very pleased I have found this site.

    Get a manual and do a clutch adjustment. No only at the handlebar, but you may need to make some adjustment at the rear of the gearbox. The Targa wasn't imported to the US so we don't have any experience with that model over here in the US, but it should be similar to other small block bikes.

    Let me show how tricky job it may be:) So, to catch "gearbox end" regulation, I am using small adjustable with 3mm cut-out. Why so silly tool?

    Because with swingarm in place, you got no space at all to do it other way! And mind, 13mm counter nut is just 5mm deep, so not every spanner will leave enough space to hold odd-headed bolt. Enjoy your job!

    I use a very small adjustable wrench to make that adjustment. The tool kit in the 70s machines had a piece of flat stock with a notch for this and adjusting valves.
