RentAGuzzi Motorcycle Rentals & Tours – Los Angeles CA
  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. Click on the Service tab above for more info or to book an appointment -- it is not a retail shop to visit. If you're in L.A., you can come sample our work via our rental fleet - click the image link above. In a few short years GuzziTech.com will hit the 20 year mark of providing advice and tech tips for free. Understand that this is a privately paid for website, not a free social media platform littered with ads to help pay for it. Donations appreciated via the Account upgrade (see Site Support section below) or the Donate tab above, which unlocks all of the content here along with the Classifieds, Ask the Wrench sections and our Seasonal discount notices. Thank you for all of the continued support and contributions.

When you can't find a filter wrench, but you work beside a mill all day...

    That is just mean. That is like showing up with some delicious food for yourself and not bring enough to share. WTF?
    Seriously, that is sweet. Good work. I am jealous.

    Guys, Tobin said he can make a small run of these for those interested for $49 + shipping. Post below if interested, and I’ll get a pre-buy page online. The count will be done only for those who buy early.
    Sound off...

    I'd take one as well, as long as the shipping to Canada doesn't double the price.

    For us non machinist such things may be out of reach. So I used the standard one Todd sold me but would slip when removing filter. I drilled 3 holes in the top along the edge and then would use three 1" self tappers screwed into filter body to grip filter. Out and thrown away. Use to put in filter was just enough to tighten 1/4 past hand tight.

    Very nice work on tool I am fascinated by machining of metals. It's an art form truly.

    Any word on this?
    I am not on here all the time, but if you sell any I don't want to miss out.
    Todd, feel free to email me when / if you have any for sale. I will even put my money down in advance if required.
