Damn . I would say Moto Guzzi owes you a new shaft. I would contact them . It must be a manufacturing defect.
And here is the failed part to blame fro all this work - output shaft with a broken piece. If somebody wanted to examine it metallurgically to find "why it broke" - just pay shipment and and I can ship geojson spec
This one #2Or which plate do you mean?
No, the cover plate over square hole on LH side of front timing chest. Behind the LH upper frame mount.2V models have a breather hose going there.
Good to see you got it all sussed Guzzdi. Friend's blood is worth bottling!
Yes, 8V has a plate to take off to get motor out, behind 10mm allen goes into motor in front of cyl.
Tris,I don’t have here in Seattle access to such level metallurgists :)Besides that, I cannot even imagine what are possible any other reasons except manufacturing defect? I was single on a bike, going uphill gravel road, no luggage, on a second gear about 20 km/h. Uphill steep, but I wouldn’t think of it as something extraordinary from a bike load perspective. And what is a point to “prove” manufacturing defect? The bike is out of warranty anyhow…Cheers
If you can get a couple of good pictures of both the fracture surfaces I can show them to one of our metallurgistsCan't do the lab work, but obvious stuff they'll spot and interpret from the pictures
“Besides that, I cannot even imagine what are possible any other reasons except manufacturing defect?”You are driving at too low an engine speed?
I had the same a few years ago with a 2008 stelvio, could be my pictures. Mine broke when I was using no power, rolling down a trafic light. Bought a new shaft and build it in, did change the clutch to a new one to have a light clutch
Early models have a deep plate held by two bolts , one of which is impossible to access with the motor in the frame and which makes motor removal/installation a pita. I believe later models have either a much thinner plate or it's blanked off thus making motor movement a lot easier.
