MG is really missing the boat in not releasing a big bore tribute to the LM1. What an iconic bike, thanks for posting.

A lot louder than stock. When I get home I'll use a DB app on my iPhone at 20' and 4000rpm and see what it is.
I don't know how else to quantify it. :freaky

No worries. The re-flash is the best bang for the buck out of all the mods. It's amazing that Moto Guzzi leaves that much improvement off the table. Too bad you can't take it to Todd personally.

I'm not sure about that but it does pass over that black cross-bar. You can give Todd a call at Guzzi Tech, he'd be able to answer that question for you. Maybe this picture can help.
