That is mighty sharp looking, and I think that exhaust solves one of the known issues the Quota has! (cracked crossover? isnt that a thing on these bikes?)
Wheels also know to crack at the spoke nipple. Guessing that is why the front is now 19" being relaced??
It answers a long-held interest in Moto Guzzi's, and both the condition & price were good, I bought it.It is a big and heavy beast, but once rolling, seems quite managable. It's smooth at highway speed, but jerky at low speeds due to a lot of lash in the drivetrain. I checked the cush drive in the rear wheel, the wheel to hub splines, the drive shaft splines. The play seems to be either in the gearbox (in gear) or in the double universal joint. Does anyone know the ID & OD dimensions of the needle bearing cups in the universal joint, or a part number?Roger
With the bike on the center stand, and the transmission in gear (either 1st or 5th), I can rotate the rear wheel 7-cm (about 2 3/4-inches) at the tire contact patch. As I stated I have confirmed no play in the cush drive, nor in the splined connection to the rear gear box. There is a slight play in the rear pinion to ring gear contact. My guess the play isn't in the main gearbox, as the play is the same in 1st gear as in 5th gear (This may be an erroneous assumption). That leaves drive shaft splines (look & feel OK to me) and the universal joint. I have seen reports of this joint failing, but don't know what other symptoms to look for, short of pulling the swing arm.Please suggest the best path.Roger
