Ridemalibu Motorcycle Rentals & Tours – Los Angeles CA
  1. Ciao Guest - we've been proud to harbor such wonderful Guzzisti camaraderie since 2005, for FREE. Times have changed, and so have the attitudes and expectations of far too many. Starting Jan 1, 2020, we will likely be shifting to a paid to participate format. You will still be able to read for free. This should alleviate all of the negativity that the free social media channels have created. If you are a donor or customer of ours, you're in, just use the Contact tab above if your account is not already promoted, or you can Upgrade your account once signed in. Or the Donate tab above is another option. We look forward to continuing this service to the Guzzi community, but it is not cheap or easy to host and maintain. We wish you the best for the Holidays and in the New Year.

Schoolboy error!

    I'm usually pretty good at noting where bits go as I remove them, but today I've had the rear wheel out of my recently acquired 2013 touring and for the life of me do not remember seeing two flat washers as I removed it. The obviously go on the rear wheel spindle somewhere, but where? I've looked at exploded rear wheel views but can't identify them. Any guidance appreciated.
    Steve.

    I think you are correct sir, thank you. As from next week, here in the UK, I'll be classed as an 'older adult'. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

    The rule is: if you don't grow up by the time you're fifty, you don't have to!

    There is either one or two washers depending on whether your bike is fitted with Type A or Type B flange on the rear hub.

    Download the Cali 1400 service manual B043157 and refer to page 326.
