    Curious if anyone has experienced a rattle coming from the cluster/tree area. I have one that’s proving quite difficult to find. Noticeable in the 2500-3500 RPM range or when under load. Touched everything I can to identify it but no luck. I still need to change out the fuel filter, perhaps it’s under the tank.

    Does yours have a tach? On my 18 Special, the tach has been broken loose for months and I have been waiting for a warranty replacement. It is currently held in place with two rubber bands. If I take them off, it rattles loudly. It broke loose at all three bosses... might be worth checking on yours.

    2018 Milano. Same issue as Aaron. Just set off on a trip and noticed tach bouncing. Sure enough, mounts are broken. Found out a couple weeks ago that the dealer I purchased from has gone into liquidation here in Edmonton AB. I’m going to stop at the Calgary dealer and see if I can get some warranty through them. 6 hours from home though. I’m not sure if anyone has taken over the Guzzi franchise in Edmonton yet or will. Great bike though.

    What on earth is the "cluster"? 56 years behind bars and I've never had a "cluster" (except the family jewels of course).

    I just had the tach and speedo replaced under warranty. There are 3 plastic nipples on the back of each gauge that were over tightened and broke off. 2018 v7iii with 1300 miles
