An Aussie name of Huzo will pipe up shortly, don't listen to him,
With that low milage the swingarm bearings are likely ok, just need some grease, its not a big job.The 2 Valve motor is rock solid, it may not have the same power as a 4 valve but with 1200 cc how much more do you need.Yes I think it has flat tappets but it's not a problem, my take on the 4 valve motor is double the load on the cams, what can you expect.I have never had a problem getting parts for my Guzzi's of any age and I'm on No 8An Aussie name of Huzo will pipe up shortly, don't listen to him, he's biased when it comes to 2 Valve Norges lolThe border with British Columbia will be closed for at least another month, but yes we have some great riding up here also.Is that a fact or a guess?Will you camp or motel?
I own an 07 and have had very little problems with the bike. Iím 5í7 so I purchased the lower seat and it has been fine for me, yes if it falls over itís pretty difficult to get it up without help.With so few miles on the bike I donít know if Iíd change those swing arm bearings immediately but it should be done. Not that difficult and there is a fine write up on this site.Battery starter wire thread: https://wildguzzi.com/forum/index.php?topic=48127.0I never had a problem but I changed it anyway. Front discs have been an issue on the early bikes as the buttons get gummed up and act like they are warped. Iíve spun the buttons with drill mounted Allen wrench and some lubricant so solve the problem.Some people had a problem with the rear brake losing pressure after sitting for awhile and I donít remember what the solution was because mine has never been a problem.Ask the seller if the inner plugs have been changed, probably not given the mileage but youíll have to tackle that at some point. There probably wonít be anything wrong with the plugs but they have been sitting in there a long time if they are the original plugs. Those plugs arenít cheap, Iíd buy a set or just put the originals back if they look good with a bit of never seize. Make sure the screen goes up and down. Some had issues with the mechanism, but Iíve never had a problem with mine. Yeah, Iíd consider a rider training course. Couldnít hurt and you might get a discount on your insurance rate. I think that I have something like 60K on my Norge and I was only stranded once from a loose battery cable. Nowadays I always travel with a small portable battery charger in case it happens again. Good luck.
Rear Brake loosing pressure. Or Pedal Squishy Mine does that. One way to help that is to hang a weight off of the rear brake pedal when you are not riding it.I did not change my inner plugs until about 30,000 miles (it was running bad) You will need a special thin socket but it is not hard once the tank is off. Note: make sure the tank is pretty empty before removing it.I hope you enjoy this bike.When you are riding it, in the higher gears keep the RPM's around 4,000 and the bike is happy. 4th gear =50 MPH, 5th gear = 60 MPH and 6th gear = 70 MPH.
