There's a new V7iii (2017 holdover) in my future. I'm trying to come up with a list of things to do immediately to the bike. I'll likely have the dealer do a number of them; it's not like we're in the middle of riding weather anyway.Anyone know if the new V7 iii's still need the NGK spark plug boot change? If yes, someone (Artem) suggested these would work (love WildGuzzi search): "Although many claim "NGK 8072 XD05F Plug Caps" fit V7III 2017-..., they DO NOT. V7III have different to V7II cover. I've tried few options and "NGK 8052 VD05F Plug Cap" do the job with "NGK 2306 CPR8EA-9 Standard Plugs""I'll have the fuel filter replaced with all-metal.I'll have them lube the splines. Sounds like they're dryyyyyy a lot of the time coming from the factory.I will check the clutch cable and make sure it's no longer sitting right on the cylinder. If it is, I'll (loosely) zip tie it up.
P.S. About your screen name, didn't "Rhodan" battle Godzilla?
v7/3 and v9 have 2 ujís no weak link swiveling coupler , system should be much better but still interesting whether factory assemble dry or lubedswinging arm bearings are sealed on sb, greased from supplierthink new is same
I'm going to ride it a bit and then make a decision on the suspension and seat height. I can tell the suspension is better than the 2013 V7 I had. The seat feels lower than the 2013; I may want to raise it. I am getting some risers to change the hip/back angle a bit.
Hey, if you go the Madstad route for a shield be aware that it will not work with some risers and such due to the Madstad bolting up at the handlebar clamp. Sometimes it can merely be remedied with longer bolts, spacers, etc., but then other times it just plain won't work. Just something to be mindful about if you do buy the Madstad.
Every 200 miles or so you'll need to remove the gas cap and fill the tank.
V7 111 has single u joint and yes swingarm bearings are sealed races. On mine the splined coupler was greased from the factory with what looked like a moly grease. The splines on the u joint end we're dry from the factory, well covered in water/condensation from leaking boot but dry in terms of grease. Glenn.
Wow! That's a short maintenance interval!
Kev - how did you relocate the fuel level sensor? It may be very obvious but I have not been inside the tank yet.On my 2014 Stone the warning light comes on much too early and I end up ignoring it.....if it came on with 5L left it would be more useful. Andyb
Hey Rhonda, as you know Iíve owned both the V9 and the V7III previously, in addition to many Geese before them. Glad you are on the lookout for issues, but honestly, these bikes are ready to ride more than any Guzzis Iíve had before them. Just twist the throttle and grin Big congrats. Post the pics for sure after you get it.
