Ok

All in and no great dramas but can you share your handy hints and tips for setting the pívot pins correctly. 





Ignore the rusty bolt it just holding the bits together at the mo. 

Cheers

Someone had a torque figure but I've never bothered - just do them up to what seems reasonably tight but not making the action stiff, and then do up the locknut.
Most important thing is that they stick out by the same amount each side - I use a Vernier caliper for that.

The manual tells you to count the turns BUT I use a vernier gauge they need to be the same each side ,

They go in till you feel them tighten, by hand onto the bearings then back 1/4 turn 

OSMC did have lock nuts that are smaller bolt head , the standard ones you tighten holding the inner with a screwdriver/allen key depending on type then there is a wee bung goes in the hole in lock nut, a good greasing is great idea

To be fair this is in a Haynes Manual, often available on line also check out "Pooks Books" he deals in automotive manuals. The Haynes covers all 850/1000 there is also the Moto-Guzzi workshop manual and Owners manuals that can be downloaded for free "This old tractor" website the Guzzi Workshop Manual is bound by a spiral binder and has the advantage of fold out Wiring Diags so they are 2 x A4 and easier to follow .....The manuals were all most of us had prior to this 'ere 'puter stuff and really help with pictures and show easily how to set swing arm and something you will need the settings of the centre stand bushing
