I was told by several well respected guzzi men that the 98 and 03 iirc where some of the best bikes mondello ever made. I don’t know why those two years were mentioned specifically. My 98 was a great bike.
You will still want to adjust the valves if it is a hydro motor. TDC, loosen adjusting screw, screw in 1-1/2 turn preload. I would inspect the rocker arms and valve stem for wear. Due to the extra oil journals, the rocker arms and valve stem do not get a good oil supply and they wear. .
I do not understand. How often should the Hydro valves be adjusted?
They are ALL fantastic until they’re not. I love my Norge more than any bike I’ve ever had, but at one one stage on my last trip, I wished it was a Honda…. All good the following day…
Hydros a nice motor but in 20 years I think I've needed to adjust my 02's regular valves twice. The first time to go to euro specs and the second to tweak it. It's never moved since.
Huzo, I am a big Norton and Guzzi fan, over the years travelling I have on occasion though “ why didn’t I just buy a Honda” but the truth is I would have no stories to tell !Gino
When I first got my low mile '02 I had to adjust them a few times, but since I havent had to touch them.. Plus it takes a whole 15 min to do it.. That being said, I hear so many of you that have spent so many miles on guzzis of all sorts, rave about the power and smoothness of the 1100 hydro motor, there has to be something about it.
Ok. Thanks John. I still would like to know:How often do you adjust Hydro valves?Aren’t the adjusters removed? How do you adjust the valves without adjusters?Thanks.
