Dunno about the bell housing acting as a sounding board but the 'Cement mixer full of bricks' noise is the shafts and pinions lashing about.Pete
So I take it you're still digging it right?
Yes, very pleased with the choice in many respects:controls ergonomicsseat heightground clearance shaft drivefuel capacityweightIt does not have the upper RPM HP of my 865 cc Bonneville, which performed in between my 2003 XLH883 Sportster and my 2002 1200 Sport Sportster...so I need to plan ahead a bit more when passing up a greater than 6% grade at ~8,000 feet elevation, but the cruising range is phenomenal.On the flat, at 2,000 to 3,000 feet elevation or so, I rarely drop it lower than 5th for passing on a 55 MPH or 65 MPH two lane.Planning to change all fluids ( I know that the gearbox can go much longer) at the end of Summer. Should have ~6,000 miles by the end of September.
Piaggio stuff is all batch manufactured, the major mechanical components are AFAIK assembled at Noale. If there was a batch of motors built without thrust faces installed or installed incorrectly they would almost certainly of been shipped as a back-load to Mandello and then used in a particular production run. If that batch was used in Stones then it's possible that the problem only affects Stones. If there was a product swap on the Mandello assembly line during the use of that engine build set, say from Stones to Racers then the problem would cross pollinate to Racers.We've seen issues like this before. An obvious example being the Norge 2V oil pump problem. Lots of 2V CARC bikes used that pump but the 'Crash and Burn' pumps all seem to have found their way into a short run of red Norges.Pete
Were these bad crankshaft assemblies confined to a set date of manufacture or VIN # range?

I'm just thankfull that my 2015 V7 with 2500km doesn't have this problems. Yet. No clutch adjustment from kilometer zero. I believe this is recommended practice for all clutches in all vehicles (but I'm sure driving school is not telling this to new candidates).
Tks very much for that link,,, their site is down right now, but I will definitely read through it later

Hey Kev, The site is working for me now, I'll read through the info later. I'm on a poor satellite connection, certain times through the day, I can have problems loading sites,,, the issue was probably at my end,,, not with the site,fwiw.tksKelly
If you think you Re getting a 'Good Deal' because the dealer selling the bike can undercut everyone else? Ask why? And then walk away.Pete
