So essentially I loved riding the Griso. Simply its a fantastic machine in my opinion. How's the reliability been for you guys? Extended travel?
I was looking at a Griso yesterday. Got to test ride it.Unfortunately the numbers didn't make sense and logic ruled the day as the dealer was asking high retail and offering a low trade in on my v7 (not surprising).I need to fix a few things on the v7. Im just out of warranty. I have a leak on both head gaskets. They have been retorqued, proper oil level and all that. Its a light weeping. The dealer gave me low trade in due to exhaust leak.Maybe dry clutch rattle im thinking? So essentially I loved riding the Griso. Simply its a fantastic machine in my opinion. How's the reliability been for you guys? Extended travel? Is the eldorado a more comfortable travel bike?Secondly how hard are V7 headgaskets to replace? Ive read some and have basic mechanical knowledge. Thanks in advance.
If you have longish legs you wonít fit on a Griso.
I'm going to assume that you're actually talking about the base gaskets leaking rather than the head gaskets? At the bottom of the jugs rather than the top? A leaking base gasket is a nuisance, but a leaking head gasket is more serious, with power loss and a whole raft of other potential issues.I can't say that I've read or heard of V7s being prone to either problem. Hopefully some owners will chime in on this.As for the exhaust leak, was this determined audibly or visually? Where is said leak? Has the rattle you mention been attributed to this? A poor exhaust connection that rattles should show some signs of blowby. Otherwise you might have a cracked exhaust bracket or a loose baffle in the muffler, which should have been warranty items.If the Griso speaks to you, then nothing else will do, and you'll get one sooner or later. No need to take it in the ear on the deal though. As others have said, with clean 2V Grisos selling for under $4k, there's one for almost every budget. Patience will bring rewards as spring approaches.
Well i got my height from italian mother's side so the griso was quite comfortable. Its certainly a more aggressive riding position and i didnt expect to find it so comfortable but the darn thing felt luxurious compared to riding my v7 ii.Unfortunately yes the the leak is coming from my head gasket and not the base gasket. The dealer was a nightmare (not trying bash anybody but i went back and asked for help and they told me not to mess with it claiming overfilled oil. I wont even mention the fact they overtorqued my valve cover bolts. Charged me a ton for a first service where they overfilled the oil it puked in the airbox and didnt secure my seat). So if i can fix it i prefer it.
I have wanted a Griso for many years. At first I lusted for a 2007 Griso, I just love the looks of those big ole jugs sticking out there. But sometimes I feel I might enjoy the power of the newer 8v Griso. Now I just don't know. I have never ridden either one and don't see any opportunity to do so. 2007 for $5,000+- or 2017 for $10,000+-??? My current ride is a 2015 Triumph Thruxton with about 70hp so maybe the 2007 Griso would be to much like it. Love the Eldorado to......so many bikes.... sigh.
