Yes, it just gets bigger.

Lots of good info there.

However, in recent years, I find myself using Greg Bender's site more than Guzziology.

My 98 EV is in the hands of a mechanic. I'm hoping she will come home rejuvenated. I gave the mech my Guzziology manual. He's a geek and claims it's the best damn shop manual he's ever seen. He takes it home at night just to read thru the pages.IF my EV comes back in good shape, he'll be my mech of choice.

My experience raises the opposite question:  how up to date is Guzziology?  I bought my copy (version 8.1) in mid-2013 right after I got my V7 Stone.  At this time the single-throttle V7s had been out for almost 2 years (in Europe).  The book has nearly nothing on these bikes, even though it was advertised as including them.  So, I would conclude that Guzziology is a great resource for restorers and old bike aficionados, but not for the purchaser of  new bike who wants guidance on its workings and maintenance.

8.3 is the new version.
