Joe Caruso could most likely make a set of gears for you.https://woodburymotomedia.com/moto-guzzi-timing-gears-by-joe-caruso/
Iíve been talking to him today and he is currently dormant, but he is ďgearing upĒ to recommence as soon as COVID restrictions allow.My set for the Norge are on the books.
Looks like Huzo will get the first set of gears Down Under and I will have the next set out here in Colorado.I have been in communication with Joe over the last few days trying to figure out which of the four cam gears I have on my bike. Based on engine number it looks like the same one Huzo (and all subsequent 2 valve motors) has.I will open up my timing chest here in the near future just to double check.I know this is the pricy way to go but what the heck.Skippy
Nice work, two hours Feel better now about stuffing one of those blades in my 850. As much as a gear set is a sexy alternative, I think I can live with the chain and I actually like the mechanical noises , as long as they are supposed to be there. Curious how the blade face wears in.Have you had a look? I envision three grooves from the chain link plates.
So, any discernible wear on the blade?
Huzo...how did you know that this was an issue to be addressed? Was it by sound or feel or something else that suggested the tensioner needed replacing?Wondering if I need to bookmark this and add it to my future 100K mileage check at some point in the far future.

Due to a backlog and such, they are slightly delayed but are getting close. Joe indicated that they should be ready early next month.Joe also mentioned that he is producing three sets at this time. One for Huzo, one for me, and one just because. So if anyone else here is interested in a set that fits 2-valve Norge/ late generation 2-valve Breva's there is an other set available.Skippy
Well I guess you could say itís complicated but not if you know what youíre doing.Les P.I was going to bolt mine to the faceplate of the lathe and take a lick off to rejuvenate it. Would the re hashed bush need shimming back out to the original position or a couple of thouí would be of no consequence ?That question will be immediately answered as soon as I have it in my paws.
The best solution is generally the simplest, and the factory solution looks the simplest to me. Nothing to do with "knowing what your doing". Of course LesP has done a nice job of it just not required and the factory solution can be applied with hand tools if you have an old one or new pre mod one you want to modify.At what 200,000klm? it will probably be worn .4 or .5. I'd imagine from previous experience. To much to clean up on the trust face as the cam end float will be too great and shimming the retainer off the cases to compensate I wouldn't recommend.Ciao
Well that's one way of doing it, albeit the complex way. Here's what the later Guzzi version looks like, on the right. I either use this type or modify the old style the same way.https://www.thisoldtractor.com/moto_guzzi_loopframe_camshaft_thrust_plate_-12054000-.htmlCiao
As Phil posted it would increase end float clearance, I replaced everything because of chrome damage from the cylinders, that plate was not to expensive. (The camshaft was a later model NOS item also)The engine is very quiet running overall.
Well folks, the deed is done. I received the gears from Joe Caruso last Thursday and had them installed by Friday afternoon. I am impressed by the overall quality of the gears and am especially impressed with precision they are manufactured to. I have ridden the bike about 150 mile since the install and am happy with the results. At idle their is only a faint whirring sound that one would expect from a set of straight cut gears. Once underway and at speed the motor is substantially quieter than before sounding like a sewing machine humming along. No more of the racket from the chain slapping around against the original tensioner. In my mind this whole little project was well worth the time and expense.Skippy
