    Posted: 15 Jul 2022 at 15:55
Hello everyone.

I am replacing my flip top chokes with the original barrel choke assembly. I can get this from Guzzibits. What i need is the clamp and bracket to fix it to the top of the left hand cylinder. Can any one help at all ?

Cheers !

Tom

Oh yes. I thought he said he had not got that in stock. Damn. I will call up on Monday and take them to task.  Thanks Barry. Maybe it was not in stock. Anyway, I still need the bracket thing,

If nothing else, Gutsibits might share the part number with you, so that you can search elsewhere - or check the parts manuals and then search online? Good luck.

edit: Having said that, and just having taken a quick look at the same part on my CaliT3, the 'barrel' part of the remote choke is secured (to a metal L-bracket, in my case, to the top of the rocker cover) using a simple 'P-clip' which, if you're stuck, you should surely find even on Halford's shelves?

Mate, you're welcome - and at the risk of stating the obvious (but it won't be obvious to someone, I hope), this:

The single best accessory you can get for your Moto Guzzi?- a parts book! And some of the Moto Guzzi parts books are full of wonderful drawings that help even the most mechanically inept numpties (me, I'm talking about me) to work out what goes where, what connects to what, what's missing from your 40+ year old machine, what's been put together wrong, what size the screws and bolts are (in some cases), and what the part numbers are for those bits you never knew you should have been on there!

I download mine from Teo Lamers - for free (but there are various sources onlone). I learned a while back that knowing what fits on other to models (in my case, other 'big blocks') can be extremely helpful at times.

Yes, a parts list is essential. I already have a parts list but until you pointed the bits out to me it was unclear what it was that i required. I expect it was me being dim. Thanks again Barry. 

A photo also helps and I have found this link to be very useful over time when I have been doing any sort of job on my bike. This guy jim takes this old guzzi apart down to the last nut and bolt and builds it up again all restored and lovely. Every step of the way is explained and photographed. He is a very competent restorer and on the page below he has some pics of the bits that i need. You will doubtless find it interesting in any event. 

The bits i need appear in the pic timed at 5:02.53


Enjoy !

I may be the guilty party here. I bought Gutsibits' secondhand one a couple months ago but as Barry says, its only a P clip, it didn't come with little bracket to mount it on the rocker head. I mounted it as per Stevex.

Barry: Thanks for that extra link to the parts book👍

Meanwhile, please see my want dad🙂

Mine was mounted on a head cover screw for years, then I saw one mounted on the intake stub screw, and changed mine immediately.  It’s much more accessible, and avoids scratching the tank when removing or refitting same.  It is a little more difficult to access the fuel tap, but a price worth paying.

As Huxley said, “how extraordinarily stupid of me not to have thought of that”.

If it helps, I used the same “P-clip” and filed up a bit of ally angle to fit it to the intake stub screw.  

It looks from the photo above that this is an unnecessary extravagance, and the clip can be fitted directly to the screw.
