Thanks Huzo, will sort it tomorrow. Sye
Huzo, you definitely have done more to advance/spread knowledge on the V85 than anyone else I know. Glad we've got you here.
Huzo, I have two questions. Can I remove the pins completely one at a time to grease them? The manual says 50nm torque for the lock nut and R/H pivot pin but no mention of the L/H pivot pin. Is this just a snug fit without any preload?Thanks, Sye
Thanks Huzo, I have a plan now. Remove wheel and shock bottom linkage, use wooden blocks to support both sides and remove one at a time. I have some Loctite 8012 moly paste that I will use to lubricate both sides. PITA really on a three-month old bike but hey-ho, that's life and at least I know it's been done.Thanks again for your help, you are a gent.
Thanks Huzo, I did get the impression that Guzzi's in general were lacking greases from the factory. I will take your advice and just do the left side. Much easier anyway Thanks, Sye
Good idea to pull both shouldered pins out one at a time .The factory don't grease them and they corrode into inner race of ball bearing . The V7s have a shim washer on RH side only not sure about V85 .
Hmmm.Although that is at odds with my final comment, there’s no doubt that what you suggest is the best way to go. Especially if you enjoy the buggerising around...
How did you get the inner footplate bolts out Huzo? I'm having a bugger of a job getting at them and they've been thread locked to within an inch of their life.
Thanks Huzo, I think they must have changed from hex heads to 6mm allen heads and that's the problem. It's difficult to get sufficient purchase on them as they are on the inside and access is very restricted. I will give it another severe looking at this afternoon.Thanks for your help. Sye
Somewhere in Mandello del Lario is a podgy Italian gentleman sitting in his underpants with a large bowl of pasta. Every now and again he looks up and chuckles to himself for no apparent reason. His family think he is going senile but he knows better. He's the man who changed the design of the inner bolts from hex head to allen key.
