Roper plates arenít currently available. With Peteís blessing Iím hoping to have some more made in the US. Of course youíll need to be on V11lemans.com to find out.
If you buy a replacement shift pawl spring, it is much heavier-duty than the original. Don't carry it around like an emergency $20 bill hoping you won't need it, install it and be done. Anywhere it breaks while you are on a ride will be a less convenient place to change it than in your garage. When I picked up my Tenni, I had the tools and the spring with me in case it broke between the Sacramento airport and my home in Portland, but after that, the old one was out of there and the shockproof heavy and the new spring were in. Easy fix.
Ok, let's put this pawl spring thing to rest. A heavy spring is exactly the wrong thing in this application. We sorted this on the V11 Lemans forum a year or two ago. Guzzi engineering is generally pretty good, but they dropped the ball on this one. We discovered the pawl spring was being overdriven by 17 degrees (from memory.) The heavy spring immediately is over stressed and takes a set to where it does nothing on the upshift. I made a spring .009" smaller in diameter, and *added a coil.* It is well within "safe travel." I made a test fixture and ran the new spring well over one million shifts with no change to it. It won't break. Along with the "Lucky Phil" shifter extender, the transmission shifts..uh.. as well as any Japanese transmission.Scud on this list and the LeMans forum sells them for around 10 bucks, I think. Some of that goes back to the forum.Now that is out of the way..The Mighty Scura is my favorite motorcycle of all time. It's had some mods, but the 03s and on were pretty well sorted from the factory. It is comfortable enough to ride to the twisty bits and competent enough to make the rider be the difference once you get there.What's not to like?Oh. And it's the last of the *real* Guzzis.
