*Very* nice.  ;-T Thanks for taking the time to do this..

Is this to say that Moto Guzzi motorcycles are THAT simple to troubleshoot?  Nothing more than a ".".

So, for what it's worth, the chugging problems I was having on my Breva 750 between 3500 and 4500 RPMs disappeared when I replaced my mufflers (with used stock Franconis), the insides of which were worn out and rattling around. I had been convinced that it was a fueling issue, and thought it could be solved by tweaking maps, etc. Swapping mufflers was much easier.

Let us know if the misbehaviour turns up again, please. I have done several things to the V7C which I thought fixed it, only to have it turn up again later, sometimes much later.

I suppose if I wait for the replacement mufflers to wear out, it'll reappear... :grin:

Seriously, though, you can be sure this group will be the first to know if it does happen again.

Do I need GuzziDiag to do my own service on the V7III, or is this just for those who want to play with different fueling maps?

I believe you need it to adjust your TPS.

You don't usually NEED it to do a service. Many of us managed quite happily before it became available (blissful ignorance ?). Many owners seem to run & service quite happily without it,  or are content to use the dealers. If you are tech savvy, or wish to become so, it's a neat tool to have access to, and cheap. There are applications for it other than re-mapping, although that it is often the main excuse for initial acquisition. But it's a tool, and most of us get tools when we think they might come in handy sometime.

As Mal says, it's not required for routine maintenance. Should you ever need to reset or check the error codes, or reset the autolearning parameters (fuel trims), relearn the throttle, or simply test or check sensors, it's an invaluable tool for the small cost of the cables, and even a donation to the developer. The map Reader & Writer are separate programs, and the usefulness of the main GuzziDiag program is not limited to "those who want to play with different fueling maps".

I have an OBD connector to my computer that I used with my triumph.  Can I buy just the cable that connects to the Bike?

If you used TuneECU with that OBD connector, or you know it has the FTDI chip in it, you can use it.

I have NOT found an OBDII connector on my 2008 1200 Sport.  Where on the bike do I connect to use the program ?

It's there. Probably tucked down beside the airbox or relays. Looks like this.

OK I have seen that. Thanks.  What cable do I need to get then ? I have an OBDII to USB I use for my Triumph Rocket III with my computer and TuneECU.

On Breva, Sport and Norge the connector sits way up the back under the seat in the little 'Tray'.

I don't believe Mark has done much map work for the 15M/RC as used on the V11's. I might be wrong but that.'s why I suggested V11.Com as I know there are several folks who have built their own maps over there.

I'm not able to connect Guzzidiag on my laptop. It's not finding a port. Can I use another app for diagnostics? I'm new to this. Can I use Tunerpro for this?

No. TunerPro can't be used for diagnostic purposes.

Did you install the correct drivers? What operating system are you using?

Don't know what laptop you have but the very 1st time I had software (Technoresearch VDSTS) I had to go into Device Manager and find the usb port cables were plugged into.

This guy has a Bassa, so maybe Beetle could modify the map he made for Dan in NC and his Calvin.

I am trying to use GuzziDiag on a 2010 V7 classic. I have a Linux laptop and have downloaded the appropriate files, and procured the cables from lonelec. The programs all open but I am stopped by the Reader, which does not present any choices in the COM area, and returns a "file could not be opened" message when I try to save the stock map. I need ideas - please help!

Hi, i'm new here and i just installed the beetle map on my v7ii using linux.
The issue you're having is about permissions. Since linux already has it's usb and serial drivers, you don't need to install them but you need to give permissions for them to be used.

do this:

1 - plug the usb cable to the computer (have the usb cable connected to the serial diagnostic cable too)
2 - open the terminal window and check if the cable is detected by typing usb-devices this will give you the list of all your usb ports and whats connected to them
2 - list your usb tty by typing dmesg | grep tty so you know the number of the port on which you plugged in the cable
3 - add permissions for your usb port to be used as a serial port by typing sudo chown :yourusername /dev/ttyUSB0 replace the 0 for the port number you have the cable plugged in to (in my case was USB0 because i connected to what is considered to be the 1st usb port of the computer, when you have more than one of course)
4 - now if you open the guzzidiag or the reader or writer map apps you'll see your usb port listed in the COM port field.

I hope it helped!
