RentAGuzzi Motorcycle Rentals & Tours – Los Angeles CA
  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.

    Hey All

    The Quota winter project is coming along. It's time to change the fork oil but I'm lazy and don't want to follow the procedure in the shop manual. Has any body changed the oil without taking of the forks off and disassembling?
    -thanks, Rafael

    You don't need to disassemble the forks. Jack up and/or support the front end. Remove the fork caps first, then pull the plugs at the bottom. The oil will drain out. Reinstall the plugs and refill. Be sure to use down pressure on the fork caps when re-installing so you won't damage the threads.

    Great news John, this is the same procedure I use for the Tontis with the cartridge damper. I take off the rear wheel then jack up the engine so that the front wheel is about 3 inches off the floor. Thanks -Merry Christmas

    I just changed mine with the bike on the center stand.
    I changed to 30 wt oil and it eliminated the wallowing under hard braking and turning.
