no cracks here and I have several thousand miles in dirt, lucky so far. if it happens I'll get a tubeless rim, I am thinking of going to a 19 front, too cheap for that now though. I'm going to put a larger footpeg on, might ask a welding shop about moving the pannier mounts in a little, I know it would make side cover access harder but its rare they come off, I dont use the side panniers much as they really stick out. mine was remapped before I bought it , fueling seems fine.

I have a Quota repair manual on cd if anyone wants it just pm me and i'll send it out. I probably won't be owning another Quota although it was a great bike and loads of fun once sorted out.

Parting Out 2000 Quota w 19k

Complete running bike. Parting out.

Thinking a donor for all you hardcore Quota folks is a good thing. Feel free to make offers if you need anything.

Cheers!

I just had some AWESOME service at moto international in seattle, reasonable price too !!
the mechanic was an ex quota owner. he grafted on a FJ head light I brought in, WAY more light, picked it up on ebay , it was Greg Benders tip that lead me to that.
mech said these are prone to funky spark caps, $3 I'm golden.

Has anyone ever changed the front wheel on a quota from 21 to 19??

What tire size did they use??
Thanks Pat

A number of Quotas have been changed to 19" front. Zupi used the rim (tubeless) and brake discs from an Aprilia Caponord. That bike uses a 110/80-19.

Other 19" conversions have used a 100/90-19 tire.

Just got done changing out the handle bars to higher ones previous ones were not stock. Changed out the turn singnals front and rear to three wire honda xr style bike master replacements and I like it alot With the running light for extra safty now. I also added a power outlet mounted to the new handle bars for the gps and changed the crankcase breather hose that goes to the steering head as it was making a mess of things as bad as it was cracked up and changed a fuel line and cleaned the k&n air filter. Should be good to go for a while. I need a new dash if anyone has one

ive looked at getting a bar with less sweep but havent found one.

you need a dash? mean what instruments go into? if you cant find one maybe fab one ? make a template have a fab shop cut one, anodize it?
and for those that made the 19 conversion
how is the diff with a 19" wheel?

Sorry for the delayed response, I've thought about making my own dash as I am a Aircraft Structures Mechanic by trade. For what they want for a new one I cant justify the cost, I was thinking about aluminum deck plate tig welded together then anodized or painted black.

Thought you folks might be interested in some Guzzi NTX and Quota adventure bike history. Pretty well and accurately written.
