    Very nice looking V7! How do like that Dart screen? Is there much of a difference at highway speeds?

    Mike.

    Yea, it makes just enough difference...although it does change the look, I like it.

    Cool, I'm on the fence, trying to sell my Ducati Hyperstrada. Don't want to start buying parts for my v7 until I can unload the Duc.

    Bought my 2011 V7 Racer on March 22, 2016. Bought it with 950 miles...about to turn 1600. Love the bike and looking forward to forum discussions.

    Congrats. I've a 2011 V7R as well. If you plan on modifying/upgrading the bike, my suggestions would be, first, Todd's ECU reflash to improve the fueling response and, second, Andreani cartridges for the front forks to improve the suspension.

    Thanks for posting. I sell the Andreani kit here on the Store as well, but I highly recommend the Matris F15K kit or any of the others here; https://www.guzzitech.com/store/category/suspension/?filtering=1&filter_model=v7-c-s - as they are all drop in with no fork modifications needed like the Andreani.

    I believe I found the correct thread... I picked up a 2015 V7 June 18, 2016 Vin. zgulwua14fm200243. Also found something to do with the hand rails :).

    Thanks! Honestly, I'm probably going to stay pretty stock. Bar-end mirrors, maybe?

    Against my wishes, I might have to paint the tank...I am experiencing the cracking issue I've read about on here.

    Hello everyone!

    FInally got my ruby baby ( ZGULWUB03GM200290) home yesterday afternoon. Seacoast Sport Cycle in Derry NH did a great job with a great, low pressure sale ... can't recommend them enough.

    Angostini crash bars on the way, ready to get things going on the break-in (first 600mi under 5K then normal riding after that).

    Hopefully I get my full 1250mi in before the end of the season ... bought the bike to be primary transport so should be no problem!

    I was looking at the CRG LS 2.2 but it might be a while with no car my money needs to be re prioritized. I also was planning on switching out the valve covers but that went on hold too I have the adapter plates for those too just need the retro covers and was looking at a set of head gaurds

    I had LS on my v11 and switched to CRG Arrow on my v7. Arrows a bit larger but like the look of the CRG LS better.
