  1. Ciao Guest, Happy 2019! Note all of our products and custom bike builds are now on our sister site; GTMotoCycles.com. You may need a new username and password to get into the new GTM Store system - pending and past order info is available there. NOTE: We are not Amazon, we are a tiny one man operation. Thanks for your patience on orders. GuzziTech is now back to our origins; Enjoy the Guzzi Community Forum and Resources here. There is zero tolerance on personal attacks and off-site links to other Forums or competing products. Note there's decades of Guzzi hands-on experienced help on this site, all whom give endless amounts of their time for free - be courteous. For those who are new here, the owner of this site (Todd - GT-Rx®) has been immersed in Guzzis since 1999. He's raced and wrenched for two-thirds of his life, both Pro dirt-track and road-race, and contributed to Cycle World Magazine from 2000 until 2007. He began Guzzi dyno performance modifying and fuel tuning in 2001, and has been wrenching them full time since 2007. His GT MotoCycles workshop has been open for ~4 years in Orange, CA. We do not have a phone number for this site or GTM, we're online only... do not ask us to call you.

In a few short years GuzziTech.com will hit the 20 year mark of providing advice and tech tips for free.

    Manual requires Eni Rotra/Agip gear MG 85W-140 gl4/5 for final drive (bevel gear) of mine V9.
    But there is no availiable Eni/Agip oil of that spec for sale anywhere.

    What should I put into my final drive? Please share your experience.

    Any 85W140 of GL 4 or 5 will be fine. The bike doesn't care what brand you use. Guzzi calls for ENI/AGip to keep other Italians employed.

    My 2017 Moto Guzzi V7 III owner's manual called for "Castrol" branded lubricants.

    My Triumph Speedmaster wanted "Mobil 1" branded lubricants.

    Harley wants you to use Genuine Harley branded lubricants.

    Any good quality gear oil of the correct specification and viscosity will be satisfactory.

    I used Valvoline and all is good. Just use high quality 100 % synthetic. Like John said it's an Italian thing.
    For example I use Motul for my engine.

    Best
