Having those caps short is pretty pricey, though... if they burn out your Cat, no? Wait... you have warranty, right?
I still have the originals in my 2013 too.
Happened to my bike, my wife's bike... saw one in the service area of the dealer, and talked to another at bike night that had the issue. Enough to make me paranoid. I know it's a YMMV thing, but I guess we prioritize our own experiences.
Go to Cadre Cycles in Cincinnati.(!) Yes, I'm aware it is a good distance away. Enzo has several small blocks at good prices, is honest, and stands behind his work. Buy your bike of choice. You'll be glad you did. You only get a chance to buy your last bike once. Disclaimer: I have no dawg in this fight. Just call Enzo and tell him the denizens of WildGuzzi sent you..
There is little doubt that modern Guzzis will experience more issues than e.g. a Honda; as has been said several times above, Guzzis require more patience and owner involvement than Japanese bikes or even new Triumphs. But, if you're inclined to overlook some foibles like sudden leaks from the shaft drive, remote dealers, and can do some wrenching, few bikes are as satisfying to own as a Guzzi.However, if I was you, I'd have a Honda CB1100 in a minute; you get significantly more bike and a more masterful touring companion due to better suspension, dual discs up front, far more power, and ultimately better build quality, than with a Guzzi V7. And the same classic look that is just as authentic for Honda as the V7 is for Guzzi. The Guzzi will have a bit more of that elusive trait "character," hard as that is to define. Also, do you have a Triumph dealer nearby? They are making terrific bikes these days, with a far larger dealer network than Guzzi's.http://powersports.honda.com/standard/2017/cb1100.aspx
OR ....Go to Moto Richmond in Richmond, VA (!) Yes, I'm aware it is a good distance away. Chelsea has several small blocks at good prices, is honest, and stands behind her work. Buy your bike of choice. You'll be glad you did. You only get a chance to buy your last bike once. Disclaimer: I have no dawg in this fight. Just call Chelsea and tell her the denizens of WildGuzzi sent you..Lannis (that was easy)
The CB1100 is retro in looks alone... a pretty, pseudo-late 70s/early 80s giftwrap around *thoroughly* modern and "reliable as a Singer Sewing Machine and about as exciting" guts. It falls victim the same things as other "modern retros"... aside from Guzzi and Royal Enfield. New bikes styled to look old.
Thanks Huzo - just an honest request for help followed by GREAT people doing their best to assist with a problematic decision - weighing all the pros and cons.I apologize for being late with my update - could not be helped. While I believe many here will not understand - because they ARE mechanically inclined - I decided not to go with MG. Those who said choose with your heart and not your head - you are absolutely right. But riding to some of the dealerships a few recommended - 500 to 1,000 miles one way!! - just isn't doable for this hard working rider. I've already stated why I lost confidence in the local shop and 125 miles thru rough traffic to the MG dealer - and my bucket list trip coming up later this year...At the moment I am still looking & undecided as I have to make this choice the right one. Please know that I was overwhelmed by the sincerity and kindness expressed in all your posts.Many thanks & God Bless.
