Another thing.

At 46k miles the noisy even new rockers may need service.
rockerarms.com near Redding CA is the place.
The shafts are quite hard and can be flipped if any wear is detectable.
In the late '90s shipping to & fro costs close to the rebush & tip grinding of all four arms.
Most hghly recommend them if you are seeking this.

Moto International did my heads for $150 in the '90s with new guides.

Tip: Drop the push rods one at a time in a horizontal fashion from about a foot onto a hard flat surface.
Does it ring? That's good.
Does it sound like a lead bell? That's bad... means it's full of oil. Buy used as new are laughably funny expensive.

The two places out here are:
Cycle Garden.. not cheap
Moto Guzzi Classics.. Mark is a good m/c guy
