That bike is on display at red rock Harley.  The owner of the dealership collects beautiful bikes !!  Tends toward the racing history.  The bike is as NEW !!!!

Yes...we saw that fine Guzzi  last January in Vegas at that shop.  More than a few tasty classics were also displayed! :thumb: :1: :cool:

Bunch of old men who apparently think spending four days camped in the middle of nowhere Kansas is a wonderful thing will be the first line of the story .

Actually, when you think about it...if written correctly, it would be very interesting piece. 

"Why a group of old men who are still riding...and remain fiercely loyal to a brand of motorcycles that has been going out of business since 1921!" :shocked: :wink: :thumb: :cool: :1:

I also found the same when I fitted Ed's recommended jetting. I do however still have the accelerator pumps.
The 68 pilots are way too rich. I'm running 62's right now but have 60's and 58's on order.
I've moved the needle clip up one notch and midrange is very strong. I personally think this needle / atomizer combo is very good.
I'm currently running a 145 main. I have a pair of 135's I may try when I swap out the pilots.
All in all I think I'm very close and way better than stock.

What was you reason for removing eliminating the pumpers? I don't recall this being recommended anywhere.

FYI I'm running Mistrall exhaust w/ DB killer in place. K&N filters and Delrin manifolds, Dyna ignition and coils with a fresh tune including complete carb cleaning and rebuild.

Be patient, you'll get it sorted and once you do it will all be worth it.

How many miles on your bike? If more than 15,000 there will be wear and it will be visible if they know what to look for. There doesn�t have to be exposed base metal, even a �Shadow ring� of discolouration around the circumference of the tappet face is evidence of failure. Any missing DLC at all is a clear red flag, even the tiniest spec. There is no such thing as �Acceptable wear�.

I just bought mine several weeks back from the original owner with only 2400 miles.  I just turned over 3400 miles this past week.

Enzo (Cadre) inquired today and the regional service rep didn�t say anything about NOT covering parts; in fact, he restated the process.  Here is his response - which seems reinforce/restate what�s been said before:

�We normally cover parts only, if the problem is documented by the dealer.
 
This will require the bike to be brought to an authorized dealer and the dealer disassembles one side of the timing system to inspect the cam and buckets for wear.
 
If wear is found, you would need to send the VIN, mileage and photos of the damage to myself and Iris  ihenry@piaggiogroupamericas.com
 
If no wear is found, the customer would have to pay you for the disassembly, since the bike is long out of warranty.
 
There are 3 possible kits, based on the year of the bike and using the bulletin for identification.
 
If approved, Iris will have to open the VIN for  a parts only claim.
 
Once the entered claim is approved, the kit entered on the claim  is auto-shipped.   (old bulletin said to order the kit , but this  step is obsolete now.)�

If this is indeed still the policy, then it makes me quite happy, of course.  But a question.  I was thinking this is something that just gets done but from this above it sounds like if there is no wear then I guess(?) I just have to wait and pay for the disassembly again at a later time?  No biggie, just curious.

So what did the headline read?!?  "Guzzi Geezers Swarm Down Upon Cedar Vale?!?" :laugh: :grin: :wink:
