Both cylinders are performing. My uncle is helping me today after noon sometime. We are going to go through the checklist of the suggestions you guys had. Iím still hoping we can figure this out. Iíd like to ride. But worst case scenario I guess I haul it to old and have eurotek take a look. I called Motiv and they said they donít have service their. Just sales. If itís a service issue they contract it out to someone. Thanks again guys. Really. Iíll let you know what we figure out once we start running the gauntlet.

Might want to check the service capabilities, because I think you may have it backwards. Eurotek send bikes to Motiv for work.  Don, who owns Motiv (the Guzzi dealer), is very capable and works on Ducatis for Eurotek, which is a BMW, Triumph and Ducati dealer. I do know Motiv has been pretty busy lately, but as a last resort that is where I would take my bike. I'm not independently wealthy so I would stay away from Eurotek.

The guys on here will give you a lot of good ideas to check, and after you get this sorted, your bond with the bike will grow substantially. Good luck and try to stay positive, it will probably be something quite simple, when you figure out what it is.

Pretty heavy, yet short duration thunder/rain here in northeast. Nowhere near as bad as you had.
Hope no one was hurt in your storm. Seen thunder this year like never before.

General Discussion / Re: longer side stand for V7 III

The earlier V7 sat higher than the III so it may actually be longer which could only help. Can you bring it to Bowman's? I'll comp you lunch.

Yes.  And I'll be having the lobster...

Forgot to add that the region also had a 4.2 quake last night too, causing some damage including a school in Burrton, KS.

General Discussion / Re: Steering issues Hydraulic damper adjustment
« Last post by izzug otom on Today at 08:49:48 AM »
Thanks guys. Equaling out the hydraulic adjusters has made a huge improvement. .............. Bloody kids messing about with it. Been stealing my petrol too ffs! One time a neighbour found my entire petrol cap assembly on the floor near my bike. Not the brightest of kids then, as it wasn't even locked, and the idiots never even tried to press the button to see if it'd open first. Ah well she's kept in my locked backyard now.

As for tyres, all pressures are good. Just had a new tyre fitted a couple of weeks back for my MOT. I had problrm before the tyre change, slightly improved after the change, but not much.

The old tyre hadn't worn unevenly, but was old and had lost a lot of it's stretch. Pirelli Demon I think, but now with a battleaxe, to match what's on the rear.

After that put the bike on the center stand then check to see if the swingarm bearings are tight enough or too loose.

What's the procedure for that Tom? Is it similar to wheel beearing etc, just seeing if there's any play/wobble in the left to right movement? ....... I'm assuming it can't be too tight?

Thanks for all the in put guys. ......... going to check the tappets now.  :wink:

General Discussion / Stormy night in Kansas.
« Last post by gliderjohn on Today at 08:47:43 AM »
Bit if a blow last night with thunderstorms. Just a few nights ago 30 semi trailers were blown over on I-70. Last night two freight trains were derailed by wind, both within a few miles of my house! :shocked: Had some light tree damage and some garden damage. Also had quite a bit of small hail. The general area had a lot of tree damage and power outages.
