*The Stone has had a ďsolid lifterĒ? fix but can't tell me what under the covers looks like, with a dual plate clutch, unknown on triple tree.*The EV had a fix done with snapped off stems but can't tell me about the shiny metal covers or not, single plate clutch, campaigns say tappets and triple tree done
Solid lifter for hydro's is using the latest kit but use the slugs they set them to. they use normal rockers & 4 slugs. I know Ace was doing a few like that w/no problems.
I personally would go with the EV. Not too sure about the" solid lifter fix". I had an 03 hydro, an aluminum, and it was a sweet motor. It was uncannily quiet!Rick.
Thanks Steve, so do they require adjustment as a solid lifter or no?
Iím confused, not an unusual thing for me but Iíve looked and can't find my answers.Iím looking at 2 hydros, 04 Stone and 04 EV;*The Stone has had a ďsolid lifterĒ? fix but can't tell me what under the covers looks like, with a dual plate clutch, unknown on triple tree.*The EV had a fix done with snapped off stems but can't tell me about the shiny metal covers or not, single plate clutch, campaigns say tappets and triple tree doneYour collective advice please and go...... inditx
Iíve had an 04 EV as well as an 07 vintage. I now have an 02 Stone. I have not missed the duel rotors , nor the tachometer or floorboards. The tube tires has not been an issue and valve adjustments just become a 10k norm. It comes down to what you become accustomed to.
02 stone owner here also. Personaly dont like the floor boards so thats a plus for me. I perfer the lower, more flat bars on the stone. Fits my build better. I do miss the tach though, and might add a second front disk. Other then that. Dont worry about valve adjustments at all. Unless you hate the tappet noise [and thats really part of being a Guzzi..] after you have done it once it takes a good 15 min to do.
Iím conflicted on the Stone because I really donít want tube tires and prefer dual discs up front.The EV is nice but has the single plate clutch.So the solids wonít require adjustment and thatís a plus for the Stone.All I know on the EV is itís had a ďtappetĒ campaign done, not sure which one.inditx
Converting from that single plate clutch would be pricey.
Maybe adding a second rotor because of stopping power?I prefer a quieter motor but donít mind the noise on my V7 850 because the Agostiniís help.
