just started riding 2015 V7.2 and also find engine is likely to stall after just setting off unless you rev up - but surely moto guzzi dealers should be able to get engines to run smoothly without owners having to fit some aftermarket gadget which would probably invalidate the manufacturer's warranty as well as costing more money!

Lots of bikes are like this, not just MG. It's cos they're set for stupidly low emissions and not actual real life. Only other option is a remap of the ECU.

what remap do you have to have done to cure the problem? - and what if the dealer says the latest remap was done?
my 2015 V7 2 special is still under moto guzzi warranty but I was considering getting a Finebau 8 jet (or whatever they are called)part to try and get smoother running at all rpm.

Just a general comment...

3 x EFi Guzzis in our household. 2007 Breva 750, 2010 Griso 8V SE and 2014 Stelvio 8V. All run well on standard (updated) mapping without recourse to the Finebau units or similar. 

What am I missing?

Some people don't seem to have a problem. I don't know why.

Just had the first service on my V7 Racer 2.  Map has been updated and it has helped to reduce the tendancy to stall when first starting off.  According to blurb map was created 3/7/15 mapping 4533v795

I've just fitted a finebau. Is it something I should advise my insurers of?

I bought a new V7ii in November last year.  I find the fuelling irritating too.

On start up, opening the throttle will cause it to stall.  For a few minutes after start up, all is very delicate if one is hoping for a rapid departure.

Once warmed up, there is no problem moving off, but the fuelling is not smooth below about 2,500 to 3,000 rpm.  It will not pull smoothly and seems to hunt, backwards and forwards, as if there is drive train snatch.  It makes riding in town unpleasant, when there is so much else to worry about.

My little Suzuki VanVan (RV125) is a dream when it comes to FI fuelling.

Above 3,000 it goes very nicely.  Quicker and slicker than my previous 08 Reg V7, I would say.

It is averaging just over 60 mpg, which is marginally better than the previous V7.  On a trip the other day, it did a shade under 70 mpg.  So no complaints on petrol consumption.

But start up and low rev running is a pain.  I agree, why should it be necessary to have to spend money on fixing something that should not need fixing.

"I agree, why should it be necessary to have to spend money on fixing something that should not need fixing."

The same question applies to the quality of many motorcycle parts such as the rear suspension units and in some instances the seat design and materials. The problem is that unlike car manufacturers bike manufacturers assume that their products will be purchaced by the sort of people that like to "tinker and customise", and so it's more cost effective to fit cheaper components then sell you better made ones!

The Finebau has made a noticeable difference, but the V7 is still not as pleasant in traffic as the R9t Pure I tried a few weeks ago. The heavy clutch adds to the problems. I believe that the V7lll has a lighter clutch,. Does it still run lumpily?

My v7ii which I bought new in May 2015 has all the problems referred to above. I have not fitted the Finbau unit as I was reluctant to do this during the 2 year warranty period. It is standard and has apparently received 2 software updates during the services...not made a blind bit of difference. Clutch on mine does not seem particularly heavy. However the mkiii that I recently tested (did a brief review somewhere on this forum) exhibited none of these issues and the clutch is definitely lighter. I will still be keeping the mkii though because otherwise, I prefer it. Still might try the finbau unit though.

BobV7 has a point, though it could be said that seats, suspension and the like are more subjective.  It will very much depend on the type of body that the designers were working to as to whether any or all of these things matter to a particular buyer.

That said, there is nothing subjective about dodgy fuelling.  It is part of the basic engineering of the engine, something I am told that Italians are proud of.

Jef....my comment on quality is based on constant complaints on this forum from Guzzi owners regarding the need to change these components, plus of course my own experience of the same.
