Hey Rocker, am I right that your bike originally came with a chrome handlebar, not black?
Yes. Chrome handlebar and chrome mirrors on The Special, from the factory. That's why I went with the chrome Norman Hyde bar: To keep it sort of OEM looking.
Bummer...thought I'd located a nice set of black take-offs to replace my stock chrome ones.
I "think" the black bars showed up on the '14 and '15 Stones. Those are the only bikes I've seen with them.
yeah, I was just hoping it was the Special too since I've not seen anyone else change out bars yet... oh well... maybe I'll just have to buy new or aftermarket eventually.
Yeah. I have a soft spot for Agostini stuff, and like the idea of supporting a small Mandello Guzzi vendor.
Plasti-dip in the meantime?
I think I mentioned this before but you better check your fuel filter. I know of several 2014 and 2015 bikes, including mine, that came with the half metal/half plastic filter. Every one was ready to burst by 4000 miles. When it goes belly up from the ethanol it's game over. Replace with an all metal housing filter. Don't forget to order a new gasket as you'll need that also.Now, that said, it's off for a 100 mile ride to meet a few other Guzzi friends for breakfast!
This is the one on my 2012 Racer after 3,000 miles. I don't think mileage makes much difference. This was about one year into ownership.I've got a new one sitting on the shelf for my new V7. As soon as I burn off some fuel, it's going in.
your bike is looking sharpnext time you ride still need a side shot to see the reach to those M bars
Mine was soft and spongy. Failure looked close at hand to me. Glad it's out. I think if I pushed with a bit of force it would have burst.As for the gasket, I didn't see the need to reuse it. I ordered one with the filter and replaced it with new.As I have another Western New York to New England run in a few weeks I wasn't up for a gamble on the filter.That's just the way I maintain my stuff. As always, YMMV. Like I said, just a heads up.
Did you already muck up the right side cover? In post 72, second pic, looks like something tore the paint off?

Do we need to revive one of the fuel filter threads? LOL! :Beating_A_Dead_Hors e_by_liviu
I'm sure the half plastic filter is a risk at some level.But like my Breva 1100 before my V7 is approaching 3 years with the original.
Gotta love shiny paint...
