Ahh, with ya... We were talking about electrical gremlins so I just went with the side stand cut out switch issues that have come up from time to time that leads to the dreaded non starting condition on the models that I mentioned... The actual side stand bolts on those are bullet proof...
The Norge however, does suffer from the 10MM Allen head securing bolt on the side stand backing out.
And correct, Guzzi does not always know how to secure threads or grease a rear drive coupling or neck bearings. Check those components at tire time or on older Guzzis, the neck bearings.
