    So were you, like me, wondering why Guzzi used Ohlins rear shocks on the Racer, yet stuck with the crappy Kaifa forks? Well, (my shop) GT Motocycles is working on a bolt-on kit for V7 owners, using the amazingly good 43mm Ohlins conventional cartridge forks. Teaser pic below on the RentAGuzzi/RideMalibu V7III-820R, with Kineo wheels and full Brembo brake upgrade including RCS m/c, black monoblock caliper & T-Drive rotor... topped with a Rizoma fender. Before anyone links others away from this site to our friends in France, their price is ~$8300 and will not include anywhere near what I will to make it truly bolt on. This one will be substantially less, but still very pricey. Forks and triples alone are $3k in black as shown, or gold (as seen HERE).

    Gonna show my lack of knowledge here: What is an RCS pump?
    Because of the way it is phrased "full Brembo brake upgrade including RCS pump" I'm going to assume it's going to be like power brakes?

    Is there a place I could go to fill myself in on how you came about starting your shop and doing such neat things? I bet a good write up on that would be interesting...

    Off topic here in this thread, but... I am working up something to officially announce so that people are more aware of what I do and sell... as it seems so many here have no idea, nor do they ever click on the Store link above, which contains more than 600+ products right now. ;)

    Todd, what changes would be obligatory for this fork kit, other than the clip-ons?
