Some V700s had a stud on top where the fuel cross mounted! Weird stuff...
Do any of you guys know the length and inside diameter of a V7 series fork stanchion please?
SLow today...what exactly are you asking...
I would like to know, the length of a fork stanchion, and the ID (inside dia) I can get the inside dia later by removing a top nut, but I can't find the length of the tube?
I don't know the answer, but you'd be more likely to find it by asking on wildguzzi.com or GuzziTech.com. That's where most of the Guzzi experts hang out regularly.
yeah Kev, have you posted up on the loopframe yahoo group, those dudes are the BEST!
When I get the chance, I find one and measure it.
Just measured one. Inner diameter of the tube down from the threaded top is 26.88 mm, length is 574.68 mm/22.625" (approx. - I don't have any without the bottom bushing). The threaded areas top and bottom are 29 mm with a 1.0 thread pitch.
That's fantastic Charlie, thanks... I have a cunning plan
Going to have longer ones made and build a chopper?
Ok, I am not enjoying this bike, not even a little right now, constant oil leaks, terrible clutch, the rough running, I know bikes were better than this in the seventies, hell I have ridden BSA's from the fifties that were smoother than this:eek1 So in one last try before I get so fed up and sell the thing, I am going to pull the motor and box, and try to sort the problems once an for all.
Now tell me, what is the correct way to pull the motor from one of these? there is only me, working in a lockup with no bike lift or power, so what is the best way of going about this.
Oh man, don't lose heart now. I bet once you get in there, you'll find plenty of things to fix, and then it'll be all better. I feel like I've got my T3 pretty well sorted out, and I'm just all blissed out, head over heels for it. I'm not saying that to throw salt in your wounds, but to encourage you in getting through your problems. So what will you be riding for the rest of the season?
Been in this dark place and got the t shirt. My advice, lock it away and forget it for a few months. If you are going to pull engines and all the rest of it you will probably not see any of this season before the salt arrives anyway. If you are lucky enough to have another roadgoing bike then use IT for now and enjoy IT. Otherwise you will end up flogging the Guzzi I fear.
My B33 and T150V are currently pissing me off and this is the policy I am operating.
Hey Kev I must say I agree with davebeef on this one. Since you have had quite the time of it lately, just put it aside for a while if you can. Nothing like walking away from a problem you can't fix only to return later and it all comes together so easily. After all your hard work on this bike it would be a shame to rush into anything. Of course that's just my $.02
Sage words from both Dave and Woodly.
Hopefully you're in a position where you can throw a dust sheet over the bike for a week or two and give yourself some time to think about other stuff. Be a shame not to see this thread come to fruition after following some of your other threads.
That's my minuscule financial contribution ...
I was going to say take the ST and get out and make us some fine pictures. But I just read the thread on the ST.
Nonetheless, I fully agree with the 3 gents above, let it simmer for a bit untill it boils itself dry and the fogs have cleared.
In a few days/weeks/months: have a look at it with fresh eyes and you'll soon recover. Worked for my all but one time uptill now. Hence my signature; when riding old crap one needs a spare.
I don't have one running right, right now! :eek1
The Beemer is just playing up, this is the first thing that has played up since I found it all those years ago
As for the guzzi, I need to start it now, I have no light or power in the lockup, so I can't wait for winter to shut me down.
