Check out this vid on a 1975 Norton 850 Commando

Biggest thing not to do is titling the bike and turning in the MSO.  Once the MSO is turned in the bike starts to officially age and lose value.  It's still a "new" 1993 Moto Guzzi Daytona 1000.  It doesn't matter how mileage is on the odometer.

A rubber boot goes on there and is connected to the frame breather system with a hose. Leave it taped off.
There is a pic of it in the Cal II workshop supplement.

Typically a nail or screw in a tubeless tire will create a slow leak, providing time to ride the bike to a better location for repair.  In Europe I carry a 12V powered compressor on the bike to make that even more practical.  It's a much better situation than with tube type tires, avoiding the necessity to look and act like a monkey on the side of the road.

Carrying tire irons on the bike is not something I'm going to do, not least because I'm unwilling to damage the rims wielding them on the side of the road.  Mine are not dirt bikes and the tires neither unseat or reseat easily, a tire machine is much better.  I have two remaining bikes with tube type tires, both with virtually irreplaceable wheels, and my preferred solution in the highly unlikely event of getting a flat in the few hundred miles a year they're ridden involves AAA 'plus RV' membership that'll collect me and them for free.   The others including the V85TT can in almost every instance be ridden for repair.

Now that MGC has the carb boots back in stock, I'm about to re-install my stock airbox on my Cal 2. There is a "port" on the bottom face of the box about 1/2" dia on the CARB-SIDE of the filter; now what the heck would that be for? I had it taped off when I previously used the box to prevent un-filtered air being sucked in, but it bothers me now that it's even there and I can't imagine what its purpose is. The "port" is actually a stub-tube sticking out that has a bulb-ed edge, as if a hose should be clamped to it.

It looks like it ALMOST lines up with the tranny breather screen on the topside of the tranny in that area, and if it was to be used as a PCV device, I could buy that. But it doesn't quite line up.

I'm going to install the box with this port blocked off again, but it just bugs me.

Haven't read this whole thread but... This gem will only maintain the current value (in our lifetime) if it remains in the crate, right? I can only imagine that a non-rider bought it. Seems like a rider wouldn't be able to NOT put it together and ride it.

If you’ve got tubeless wheels and you cannot fix the leak with plugs and you’ve just used your last CO2 container, you’re gunna’ wish you had tubes because a new one will fix it.
If you’ve got tubed wheels and you were too stupid to have a spare in a remote location, you’ll wish you had tubeless.
We all want what we don’t have when in trouble…

16 for the bike.
16 for the box.

Installed the tubeless EV rear wheel.

Mike's photos don't display anymore so I wasn't entirely sure what he meant by there being a gap with this wheel. Now I know:

Everything assembled fine, in good alignment--the wheel spins freely and the caliper grabs the rotor as it's supposed to.  The gap didn't bother Mike and I'm in no position to doubt him so I guess I'll see how it does.  Assuming it causes no problems, I'm happy to have a tubeless wheel back there. I wouldn't want to have to R&R the rear wheel on the side of the road somewhere.
