Send an email to Tip Paul "<>" I don't know his status these days, but he used to be the MGNOC Rep for Western Pa. I've seen postings about a regular Guzzi dinner somewhere in Pittsburgh right here on wildguzzi.

 Has nothing to do with the noise , but why not install an actual oil pressure gauge and put yourself at ease . There's worse things you could spend money and time on ! Peter

I have a set of aluminum rims (borranni ) on my Le Mans 2 that originally came from a T3FB model . Bolted right on , but I can't remember if I needed to space the calipers or not
 Pretty minor chore in any event ( and to drive people here nuts) they still have the 20+ yr old tires that came with them ! And here in B.C , the Duffy Lake rd that I ride on requires some aggressive cornering just to stay on the road . Just too damn cheap to change them, as I've got new ones on the OEM alloy rims. Love the looks of the spoked rims , but crap were they a handful to clean up and polish . Peter

I ended up with the yellow/orange paint gas tank. Paint seems tough, not a visible scratch. I don't know what previous owners did to protect it, I just use a product called Rejex.

As to windshields I have never found a small windshield that didn't disturb the wind more that protect. My V7 came with a Dart, I don't notice a difference with it on or off. If I decided to tour on my v7 I would see if I could mount my wixom fairing.

The only upgrades I did to mine were bar end mirrors and engine guards. Previous owners had already added the center stand and H&B luggage. The OEM mirrors disturbed the wide open spaces.

I did find the source of a noise on my 99 Bassa. On the right cylinder where the cylinder protrudes into the case , the bottom of the cylinder just barely touches the back of the timing chest. I had the engine out and upside down and noticed a slight amount of aluminum paste where it rubbed. I ground some clearance and that irritating noise was gone. I wouldnít expect to see that on the smaller bore engines and itís only on the farthest forward cylinder, closest to the timing chest. Iíve looked on another 1100 engine and it was close but not touching but itís something to look for when modifying for I think it came about when I deleted the base gaskets and used flange sealant as an easy way to set the squish which came out to .040Ē without the base gasket. Without the base gasket cushion it may make the fins ring a bit more but I couldnít detect any . They have hard rubber bits about an inch long that stabilize the fins that Guzzi uses on some engines and I use those if I have them but I canít hear any difference .
