Hi all,
Does anyone know please the correct position in the linkage clevis  pin from the pedal to the vertical link.
There are 2 possible positions /holes , is there a correct one please?
Obviously this will shorten or lengthen the movement of the pedal when changing gears.
Or is it personal preference ?

Richard,
Did you get a reply to your question?
The reason I ask is that I have the same issue.

Hello Dennis , actually no I didn't. 
On my v50 no 2 the link arm at the back of the gear lever has 2 holes drilled onto which the vertical arms clevis pin fixes. 
This option clearly gives a shorter or longer movement of the gear lever to effect any gear change.
When I bought the bike it was in one hole , but I've actually moved it to the other hole for a try over the next few rides.
However in the parts diagram, this arm is shown with only 1 hole. 
Give it a try , like I'm trying , trial and error I suppose.

I think it comes down to your preference.

Richard,
I have just had a quick look in my freezing garage..! My bike (1982 V35II) only has one hole in the rear end of the gear lever. It looks like a chromed cast item, must have been quite a job to get a second hole in there...

Hope this helps,

Adrian

My Monza has the two holes with the clevis pin fitted to the outer one, but mine has rearset pegs as standard and non of the parts list (V50/2 and V50/3) show a this two hole part. I do not have a parts list for the Monza so cannot even say the two holes are definitely standard on my bike, maybe it`s Guzzi picking out of other parts bins again

As an update after consulting all my parts lists the two hole linkage is a Monza part so will definitely be for adjustment to the rearsets.

The most important question is, can the Link(s) be arranged to give the 'correct' (and far more superior) Gear-Change Pattern, 1-up - 4(or 5)-down?   Wink

Richard,

Thanks for the offer but not necessary. The bike is laid up for the winter at the moment and too difficult to get at without emptying the garage.
Looks lie a Spring job to me

To do that properly you would have to transfer the gearchange to the right hand side of the bike. LOL
