I couldn't see a F.B group for wildguzzi... got a link?I thought about using the oem foot pegs - when riding i joked to myself it was comfier to use the rear pegs than the boards, but thought they were a bit too bulky - and turns out a little too far rearward...Thankfully the footpegs I managed to find came with the brake lever and the gear shifter so hopefully all the big purchases are done... well, maybe some new rear shocks.... we'll see... good to know the spine frame guzzis share parts... I was limiting my ebay searching to tonti bits and bobs...cheers dave, to be honest, from the start i knew i wanted a v7 tank (i'd have bought a v7 if it wasn't for the cost of them, and the fact i wanted a big block) So i decided to make it look like one instead I like the simple lines of the old classic guzzi's and hope it ends up looking as good as one. If i get a little excited every time i walk back to her when i've stopped on a ride, i'll have succeeded. (and yes, i do like going into the garage and just sit there looking how she's coming along was the same with the Duc and v50 when they were coming along too)

I found a pool of fresh looking oil on the very top of the rear crank bearing housing, and remembered the previous owner mention, not long before he sold it, the braided oil feed hoses failed and spewed oil all over the top of the crank cases.... as such, looks like it has flowed into the bell housing causing said mess...thankfully clutch was unaffected by the oil slick, and was pleased to see he wasn't telling tall tales when said the clutch was also recently replaced
If it were me, I'd make sure that it wasn't going to leak by replacing the gaskets (main bearing flange and breather pipe), applying JB Weld to the cam plug and sealing the two lower bolts of the main bearing flange. Otherwise you risk that the blown oil line wasn't the only cause of the oily mess. I'm not a fan of those "spoked" clutch plates - I've seen more than a few fracture at the "spokes".
Are there alternative types of clutch plates for the cali's?
Replaced the breather pipe gasket, and sealed up the cam plug.... I may well end up regretting it, but I dont fancy pulling the main bearing housing at this moment in time... 1. the puller i have doesn't have a big enough diameter, and 2. the thought of it scares the bejeesus out of me.... i'll man up and do it when i notice a leak down there again Are there alternative types of clutch plates for the cali's?
You're probably right... and for the cost of the gasket and seal, i would be daft not to....is it as easy as removing the bolts, pulling the housing and replacing the gasket and seal? does the crank stay put or will it drop? and is it a PITA to refit the housing? and how exactly are the longer bolts sealed up? instant gasket? That's an awful lot of questions for one paragraph.... sorry
If the frame is part of the breather system, and it's going to be stripped, I'd caution against sand blasting! I know of a bike that killed two rebuilt engines due to sand from blasting getting in there. I'd think there would be a way to clean it out, but someone who knows better advised scrapping the frame.
Helpful info... thank you.. I think i'll bite the bullet and do the rear bearing/seal housing.... when re-installing the housing, does it slide back on easy enough? on the above thread, Charlie - you mention 22ft lbs for torque figure - this is for the rear bearing/seal housing is it? (just double checking i've not got any wires crossed whilst i'm asking... )I'll have to find the equivalent of the permatex 300... found some hondabond... i guess it'll be obvious where to seal the bolts once they're going back in...
Hi Andy. Great write up on the progress of the build. I went through the same build process last year on my EV1100 cafe build. I can appreciate the work involved in bringing all the components together. The battery box is a very neat solution for hiding that humongous ECU. Fortunately i Had the later model with the smaller ecu but still had a headache making the side panel fit. Good luck with the project. Regards Tony
