    Outstanding!

    Just another example of excellent Moto Guzzi craftsmanship, and excellent owner care of their motorcycle.

    Indeed, Jane's Breva 750 receives lots of TLC and regular maintenance.

    List of parts replaced in addition to the normal service routine:

    6,212 miles, August 2007: front brake disc replaced under warranty.
    13,285 miles, April 2008: right hand silencer replaced under warranty.
    50,630 miles, March 2011: original ‘wet’ battery replaced with Yuasa maintenance free.
    72,641 miles, August 2012: TPS unit and HT caps replaced.
    76,639 miles, January 2013: front wheel bearings replaced.
    87,068 miles, October 2013: rear cush drive rubbers replaced.
    88,645 miles, March 2014: rear shock absorbers replaced.
    96,000 miles, July 2014: gearbox output shaft seal replaced.
    106,723 miles, August 2015: rear brake caliper and rear brake disc replaced.

    120,251 miles, September 2017 to April 2019: taken off the road for engine work due to increasing oil consumption and a slipping clutch on mountain passes, plus general machine refurbishment. Major parts replaced: piston rings, valves and guides, clutch, timing chain and tensioner. Valve springs, push rods, gearbox, cylinder bores, crankshaft, camshafts, rear wheel bevel box and shaft drive were all inspected and found to be OK. The original swinging arm, steering head and rear wheel bearings were also inspected and found to be OK.

    128,369 miles, January 2020: right-hand ignition switch assembly and side stand switch replaced. The contacts in the original units were past their best and were causing an intermittent starting fault.
    131,071 miles, September 2020: exchange starter motor fitted.
    133,606 miles, September 2021: Motobatt MF battery fitted.
    134,148 miles, October 2021: original regulator rectifier replaced.

    Looks like normal wear and tear type repairs to me!
