    Wow Cam, that looks great, you would not happen to have video of how those pipes sound? my wife wants new pipes for her 13 stone this winter, but does not want to be piss off the world loud,

    Also the luggage, that looks great as well, where did it and the attachment for them come from?

    A couple of updated pics. I want to eventually get black Mistral slip-ons and put black header wrap on to complete Operation Blackout.

    Thanks. No video, but search You Tube for Agostini stainless pipes on a V7 and you should get several. I kept the DB killers in mine, and the sound is awesome - deep and throaty. Definitely louder with the DB killers removed. Gotta be half the weight of stockers.

    Bags are Hepco Becker "Straykers" mounted on their minimalist "C-Bow" system; https://www.guzzitech.com/store/product/strayker-23-side-case-set-23-liter-for-c-bow/ -- I think they're only 27 liter, but "work" on the bike.

    I've since added these "injector covers", and they disappear on the bike.

    Good question... for anyone who has one, the pan spacer is 1.25" tall, so as long as the gap around the pan would accommodate. I haven't seen one in person, but if I ever do, I'll post again.

    I picked up my 2013 Stone back in August and have put about 1,000 miles on so far. I love it.

    Mods so far:
    Brembo RCS15 Master Cylinder
    Matching Brembo Clutch lever and perch from Harris
    Sato Racing Rearsets
    Baak Fender eliminator
    LCL Bars
    Joker Machine mirrors

    I plan to get the 2:1 Exhaust at some point and upgrade the suspension.

    VIN: ZGULWU003DM200031

    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg I got my 2010 V7 cafe in 2012. Reason I bought it was I had a Harris half fairing and needed a bike. The V7 showed up and they just seemed right for each other. Had ridden the bike before and loved it, price was right too.
    Rode it 2012 and releaved bike from unneccesary parts, grab rails, big indicators etc. I had the fairing fit and made many other monds 2013 and then ran of the road. Both me and the bike got out with roadrash, kept riding it throughout the season.

    Then decided to go all in.
    Mods.
    From front to rear:
    Custom paint job
    Short front fender from V7 Racer
    Harris half fairing
    Brembo round PS 12 brake cylinder and leaver & clutch lever from older bike. Works just as good as the mordern PS 13 but looks good.
    Dellorto choke leaver
    Moto Guzzi pill box light&horn switch, works over an extra relay. Big plastic ugly controls in bin as they had rash.
    Moto Guzzi tank badges from V50
    Finned exhaust collars from V50
    Side cover decals from V7 loop frame
    Valve covers from V50, glass blasted
    Rear sets from V7 Racer
    Seat from Corsa Italiana
    Belly pan from Breva
    Rear shocks from Öhlins
    Rear fender exchanged for original front fender
    CVV taillight and plate holder from older Guzzi, blasted and painted
    Rear tire down to 120 width but slightly higher profile
    Magni silencers

    Probably forgot one or two things....

    Have had loads of fun on this bike. Love how it corners. Sound from Magnis is terriffic. Stuck with a charging problem at the moment, sucks but will be fixed.
    Got me a V50 with four valve heads by accident as the next project (used as donor for some parts on this bike), heaven knows when that will be on the road.

    Hello All, I'm new to the forum here and am the proud owner of a new Moto Guzzi V7 Stone! Inspired by the other postings on this forum, look forward to customizing it to "make it mine" : )
