    Hey guys, I am new to Moto Guzzi and just picked up a 2013 V7 Racer with 2200 km's. The bike is in mint condition and it looked great which is why I am shocked why I am already having issues after my first 20-25 minute ride on it. I made a thread on it here;

    https://www.guzzitech.com/forums/threads/2013-v7-racer-exhaust-popping-noise.17192/#post-129367

    I messaged the seller who works on his bikes, he is hour and half out of town so can't swing by. But he says it could be the spark plugs. My plan is to go to Echo Cycle tomorrow and get two spark plugs as well as left spark boot to replace these things. I have no idea how to do it so I am trying to find online DIY guides. I am hoping someone here can direct me to something?

    If someone knows what it wrong with the bike then of course any help I can get is appreciated. I can't exactly take the bike to the dealer and their prices are probably extortionate anyway which after spending the money on the bike I don't even want to go through. I am worried it may be something serious, I obviously hope not.

    If anyone local is good with bikes and can assist when I try to change spark plugs/boot I'd be happy to oblige you with a 12 pack of your favourite beer (or we can discuss alternative compensation)! Thanks guys, hoping for some help.

    Yup, thank you. I linked it above in my post. There is a video there as well and I am trying to upload a new video where you actually see the backfire when the bike turned itself off. You see a little flame shooting out of the exhaust as well.
