Remember too that the rev limiter is an important part of the safety equipment and should be checked on a regular basis. :grin:

The cam sensor is rooted. Bulging sides made it tight in the hole when I pulled it out. I took the Spyder to go get some five minute JB weld. I ended up wandering through the hills instead of working on the bike so I cant report a light off yet.  I remember thinking it was unusual for it to start so quickly after sitting for more than three months. It always cranked a little before it fired, a normal thing for an injected Guzzi but it had fired right off as soon as I hit the starter. That was the only thing it did out of the ordinary prior to its failure.

Does this mean the new RS and GS are BS ?

Öa subtle and quick clapping of approval for that one!

Iím glad my R80/7 isnít affected. I bought it 5 months ago, so it seems like Iím in the clear.

General Discussion / Re: U/J Carrier bearing collapse
« Last post by Tom H on September 22, 2023, 08:15:17 PM »
For the wheel bearing. Your replacing it anyway. So just whack away at the inner ring, don't worry about hitting the outer ring. Installing, hit only the outer to push it in.

Sure looks like water damage. Normally a bad rubber boot would cause this. Not sure of your history with the bike, but makes me think that someone just replaced the rubber boot and ignored the rest. And then, you see what happened. Put the new boot on, your in there this deep, don't want to have to do it again anytime soon.

Don't be so down on yourself. It's funny the way you bring it up though, funny in a very nice way :smiley:

You are doing very good with the resources you have.

The new drive shaft and coupler looks very nice, Run it.

If the difference is only .2 mm (0.008") I'd have been tempted to dust .1 mm (0.004") off the end of each bearing cap. That's almost an emery cloth job. Certainly a quick minute with a belt sander (If you own a micrometer).
