For me a few reasons why I chose to fit aftermarket exhaust.

Looks better - Yes

Sound better - Yes

Less restricted flow - Yes

Less weight - Yes

But since MG is not well supported in this area I will hang on to the stock exhaust if I ever buy a guzzi haha..

I am holding on to my stock blowers as well for the time being... When idling the thumping sounds nice. But it's when it's on the go that I was rather disappointed. I like the sound of the exos thumping away when on the move. But whether the 1.5 grand spent on a pair of aftermarket would make much difference I am not sure since I havent hear it myself.

 

@whitepomfret bro... Roger's V7 Stone is with white tank? I bumped into one with modded rear fender and taillamps the other morning. Gave the rider a friendly thumbsup as well.

Love the V7 Special in black and silver .. UK price Pounds 7132 only .... SG??

 

have you seen their original jackets? NICE!

 

Love it in black n silver too.

 

Not sure how much it is at Looi's. prob 7132 x 2 + COE/OTR & profits.

 

Yes, I've seen the original guzzi jackets but I feel they're not as tropicalised. You can see them in KL.

Why rush? It's the journey, not the destination ... :shades:

I modded a Triumph classic mesh - removed the leather triumph logo and back guard.

 

Stitched the black n silver Guzzi oval at the back. The vintage brass triumph buttons are subtle so they don't clash. Overall, a pretty good effect. But triumph jackets are nothing to shout about. Heavy mesh. If only Taichi or Komini designed a more classic styled mesh, I'm sure it'll be way more comfortable.

 

My main jacket is a goat skin leather jacket. Super light, very tropical, fold/rolls up real small. smaller than my mesh. I like it. and it doesn't show any brand. nice.

Choices, choices ... Guzzi (exotic but parts ...) Honda CB1100 (not so exotic but safer in the long run ... ) Kawa W800 ....

 

Yo bro, Guzzi Parts are not difficult to come by and relatively affordable or comparable to original parts from other makers. With the power of the internet and online stores, you can easily buy them. :-)

Hi Guzzisti

 

I found the distributor for Eni (fka Agip) heavy transmission oils ROTRA / Truck 85W-140 made specifically for Guzzi transmissions by Eni. However, the minimum is one carton - too much for an individual. But if we pool, it's possible. I'm just wondering if anyone would be interested in trying it out.??

 

I know most of us use the generic gear oil up to 90 weight for most bikes. But reading the discussions on Wildgoose and Guzzitech, I'm quite convinced of the benefits of going along with what Guzzi recommends and formulated in partnership with Eni/Agip.

Given that, I'm wondering how many would be interested in trying it out. The distributor needs to sell by the carton - mainly to b2b to mechanics. I go to Ah Hock (Combined Motors - at Sin Ming). If there are enough people committed to try, I could tell Ah Hock.

 

 

The main question i'd like to poll is:

 

Would you like to try it out at about $25-28 per 1 litre bottle? (we mainly need about 1 litre for the gear and transmission.) Please share your views/interests. :-)

Exhaust if getting will get legal one. My record in LTA too many liao. Next time kena sure kena court.

 

Thinking of the chrome engine cap, fenders and maybe the crashbar (cos the exhaust header kept burning my canvas!!)

Not that I know of.... there used to be a brandnew black v7 at Mah which was selling for an offer price of $21k otr only. But don't know if it's still available.

Parts buying Source: Indicator bulb

 

I was searching around for replacement orange indicator bulb bayonet-type but asymmetrically set pins. Search around the bike parts shops - Everfit, Chong Aik, Kin Tai, no one had. Then Kin Tai suggested I pop to the street behind them - Rowell Road, to a shop specially importing bulbs. That was an excellent tip. Spot on!

 

Found them from Lian Hoe Partners at Rowell Road. I had to hunt and ask around. They don't sell bike stuff, just car stuff, but realised that there are people asking for these little bulbs. They are importers of Narva bulbs.

 

Here are some pics below for your easy reference. Hope this is useful for some of you.

 

Happy riding!

Internet Purchase sharing:

 

I've been buying from a few online shops over the last few months. They've been a pleasure to work with. Why a few stores? Stock availability.

 

1. Thunderbikes , Perth

2. Stein-dinse, Germany

3. Agostini, Mandello del Lario, neighbours of Guzzi's, Italy

4. Gutsibits, UK

 

I'll share some more another time. My keyboard's stuck and the key typing response is uber sluggish. Darn frustrating.

Hi Guzzisti!

 

If there are any owners of a v7 looking to upgrade to a larger Guzzi - specifically, another naked, the Breva v1100ie, do let me know. I might just consider downsizing. if all things work well, we can do a trade or work something out.

 

Cheers!

I also comtemplated a V7 classic for a while.

the posture, the look, the heritage, is everything that suits me.

but in the end, nothing available so now i end up with a bloody HD.

 

sigh, thats life

Most of the Guzzi sold here in the past few years are V7 variants.

 

It is relatively easier to find a used V7 comparing to other guzzi models.

 

But we are talking about total population of 52 guzzi comparing to 1806 HD in 2013

 

Got to be more patient :thirsty:
