Hi, thanks for the interest!

Yes indeed - we have more episodes.

If YouTube is your preferred route, all episodes have been freshly uploaded right here.

Here are some of the threads on ADVRider containing our vids:

How to change a chain and sprockets

A BMW F650 converted to KTM forks

All about replacing swingarm bearings

How to replace spokes and relace a wheel

And we have a bunch of other episodes where all sorts of things are discussed, from electrics to suspension settings to lubrications systems ...

Hope the above links are useful and entertaining - we have had great feedback and support from ADVRiders in the past!

Best wishes - and get out into your garage!

My pleasure, there's always been a great response from ADVRiders to Garage Night. Meanwhile I'm working on further improvements to our YouTube channel and our main site.

Great that we were able to help you out! At some point I hope to do another video where we demonstrate that sidestand technique in more detail.

I reckon the most likely source of that noise is the old-school dry clutch on your Cali. It may not be abnormal, some of them are just noisy. If you Google 'Moto Guzzi grinding noise' there's no shortage of theories! You could always drop the oil from the final drive - if there's any actual grinding going on in that's loud enough for you to hear, you'd expect to find some noticeable chips and shavings - and check the wheel bearings, as well as whether the brake pads are backing off the discs properly (ie the wheel can spin freely when you let the brake lever off).

Great video ....
Another "hot" tip for installing the lower bearing is to heat it up in a shallow oil bath over a sterno. Then drop it on the shaft while hot and give it a tap to seat it.
On my 73 eldorado, the expansion negated all bearing / shaft interference and the bearing just fell all the way on.

I used the bottom half of a beer can for the oil bath...worked like a charm!
