This is getting expensive!! Guzzi parts are cheap compared to Airhead BMW though.



did you buy a spada tank?

I bought a 6 inch D shaped universal rear mudguard in stainless off ebay, I fitted it to the V7 sport type seat!

can't see any on ebay to show you though!






is that a glass fibre v 7 replica tank Ian

No, it's a mk2 lemans tank, with the top modified,

A little bit more done. Exhaust arrived today and were immediately fitted. Just need to tidy and paint the front end. Make a wiring harness and but/fit a screen.

Anybody have any ideas on buying a chrome headlight rim?

Thanks Ken but I'm a controls engineer for a living so I'll do it myself.

Thats coming along very nicely Rob, fingers crossed about the shocks. (Whoops i didnt mean to bring that up, when you are on a roll)

It'll soon be done, and just in time for the summer.

Some people like that mud spattered engine look.

Muzzi Moto know and the front calipers apparently are on back to front.

I flipped my forks so the standard mudguard fitted.

Took mine out for a shakedown run today (private roads obviously). It's running very nicely, handles well. Running a total loss ignition system limited things (as did a lack of all other electrics and instruments) but it was enough to try things out and fire up my enthusiasm to get it finished.

I'm running v9 needles in the carbs, dropped them to their lowest notch but could still do with the mixture weakening a smidgeon. Any ideas?

From factory manual, re 1000 SP:

Choke: 30mm
Throttle valve: 40
Atomizer: 265
Main jet: 125
Pilot jet: 50
Starter jet: 80
Needle: V9, 2nd notch from top
Float: 10 grams
Idle screw: 1.5 turns out from fully screwed in.

It's possible needle jet ("atomizer"?) is worn making it rich.
