I have really enjoyed reading this forum and even posted a little over the last almost 4 years but I have been having problems with my left arm and it makes pulling the clutch on my V7 painful. The Guzzi is now sold and I hope the new owner has as much fun with it as I have. So it's good bye for now at least. Steve.

What a shame, presumably the medic's can't fix it?
Best of luck for the future.

You don't need to own a Guzzi to linger, just an appreciation,  keep in touch and look in once and a while

Yes there's no rule says you have to have a bike to stay on the forum. Only that you like Moto Guzzis and want to discuss them or read about them. Hell I don't have one either! Shocked

Steve
As per Mike, linger a while, if only to find out how I get on with Hagons you sold to me. So far I have only been around the block after fitting them to make sure everything was bedded in and before I test them properly, I need to check the headstock bearings. What is it with Guzzi and headstock bearings! 4 years and 8,000 miles and I think they are cream crackeredConfused

Heresey I know, and not just because I currently ride a Honda but I have seen The Dual Clutch versions of the NC700 and NC750 at both Herts and Essex Branch meets of the Guzzi Club and their owners have been delighted with them, so it might be worth seeking a test ride.

How about a Guzzi with linked brakes to the foot pedal and move the clutch to the right handlebar?

My Convert has linked brakes, you don't need a left hand, it sounds like a Guzzi and goes like a Guzzi.

i have rarely used the clutch on most of my previous bikes, only when really necessary.  I found my G5 was quite happy with clutchless changes although not as happy as a jap or modern triumph. Maybe you could think about one of these, or even a G5 Convert?

Thanks for all the replies, I still have my 4 350 Betas which have lighter clutches. I phoned Carol Nash to change multi bike insurance from V7 to another 350 Beta and it cost 86p. It would have cost about £40 just to take the V7 off the policy.
