GREETINGS from NEW YORK
« on: April 01, 2018, 12:03:06 PM »


I've been Kmpf. BMW since mid 1970's
.. built & rebuilt road going Racers,
& took a break from riding.

College Riding Chum is still with
his R1100S in Black & family all grown.

Now .. looking at the 2004 R1150R
I'd prefer, it would take a new full length trans Input
shaft, better valves in heads, an ABS
rebuilt and updated just to get to
a healthy '04 standard as that trans
problem is Factory Designed in.

And the Exhaust Note is The Worst.


SO..

Next year I'll score as new a Griso
as affordable.

1.

 I want to install just the
2014 California main Frame alone
with
a steering head mod 
enough for these
Upstate New York Mountains.

Are the Griso engine bosses
the same as California blocks
for a drop in?

2

Do the 1400 Barrels drop into
the Griso block or is there
block machining involved ..
which I'd prefer to cut
down Barrel
spigots.

3.

Which is the Performance better head :

1400 or what year Griso ?




Is this a bolt in or what .. / :thumb:


thanks in Advance .

I would go test ride a Cali14, more poop than the Griso.  I used to service them in N. GA mountains and they go fine in real tight twistys. All you have to do is open up intake & exhaust and map it.

I suggest you go to the Griso Ghetto https://www.grisoghetto.com/ and talk to the Griso experts there. Making a Griso 1400 is not straightforward.

Contact Pete Roper on this board.  He's converted a Griso to 1400.

You night might check on the V11 Lemans Board as well.  I think he has a some detailed explanations.

That poser! Fahghettaboutit...  My advice would be to get a low mileage 2017 Griso and enjoy it.
