I understand that all 13-15 V7 have bad voltage regulators and will fry the battery, cam sensor and even the ECU
pretty simple internet math. you assume only a small percentage of complainants actually complain. it would seem highly unlikely that every owner of a guzzi v7 belongs to the wild goose website and posts if they are having issues.
Who is claiming they are "all" bad?If they are "all" bad, how did I get 10k miles and 3 years out of it and the battery so far?
lmfao. and every guzzi owner is on this forum. it cuts both ways.
what year V7 do you own?
No one here has claimed "every guzzi owner is on this forum". Nor do we believe it. That would be silly.drlapo hisself used the "ALL" word. All I did was ask him for more detail on that claim.Some of us here have not experienced this phenomenon. That means "ALL" is inaccurate at best.Though I am interested to follow the discussion and learn more about the bikes that do experience the over charge.
Maybe that is the premise for the "ALL" point, who knows?
Stop freeking the hell out, no need to panick here. Mine has been fine on my '14 Special. As far as the 8V tappet recall, just because ONE customer has had EVERYTHING covered doesn't mean that's across the board. If you assume that, you don't know Guzzi.
as for the winter storage excuse 90% of those bikes could be started for the ten seconds required for the test. then take a pic of the reading at 3000 and get the dealer involved.
Sure it could. But for gawd's sake, if I ran out and dug into one of my vehicles every time someone on the internet said the sky was falling I'd never get anything else done.
I heard that the V7II VR is a good replacement for the 13-15 units and at $145 the cost the same as a mosfet unitI'm going to ask my dealer for a swap under my recently expired warranty or a break on the price
But like I've said, I've run the damn thing for 3 years and 10k miles without anything breaking so I'll check in a few weeks when I'm ready to run it for more than 30 seconds.
From information gathered from the"other" Guzzi site while few people have experienced battery "problems" most are finding poor performing VRs when the charging voltage is measured
Uh Kev ol buddy , we realize you are a pup and don't remember the 1990's very well , but they weren't exactly the stone age I usually got 6 years out of a decent battery , not 1 or 2 . Dusty
