    So sorry .I forgot to verify it on my phone.
    I didn't answer your question. I'm repeating what I have learned hopefully correctly.
    2008ish Calvin cover will fit . Convert cover will fit. Tonti era covers will fit. Eldorado cover will fit but there's a seal issue that can be "creatively addressed with thoughtful machine skills or a custom seal can be made" . In addition the oil cooler fittings will need clearance on the Eldo cover. I have haven't looked at V11 sport model on where the front mount is located.
    I believe most if not all V11's had oil coolers. My Quota has a traditional Tonti Cover with a bolt on subframe.
    The last Calvin's shared many internal parts the Breva 1100. So going from Alternator to Stator Rotor isn't difficult.
    My GSPD had the rotor go out twice. I had an enduralast setup installed. My Quota has the exact same setup. Very robust and problem free. The Norge motor has a Bosch Alternator not a NipponDenso. I thought the alternators were ND on the Griso,Norge and Stelvio.
    I will fix photos soon.[​IMG]

    It seems pretty easy to post photos from my phone. I hope you can see them.
    Note the oil cooler has a KTM part sticker.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    WLW, I tried watching the video . It kinda was painful to watch. i assume acetone & atf is the hot setup. I have used it and PB Blaster still rocks.
    Wasn't Al Capone that said "PB Blaster and a Torch in my neighborhood goes lot further than just PB Blaster" ?

    Makes me wonder,...WD40 is said to have Kerosene in it,.....so would Acetone and Kerosene be an effective mix? I have used the Acetone/ATF mix in a hand spray bottle for years.

    Homelessness should be ending in October. The world's greatest Guzzi build saga ...will continue.
    More lies, even better lies and finding problems for solutions will be told.

    Dumb luck, ex Guzzi dealer had 2 engines.
    Another Guzzista bought one. He wrote about it. I did not figure it out until I called the ex dealer looking for a machine shop to work on my eldo crank. He said BTW I have a Norge 2v motor. I haven't tried to put the motor in the Eldo frame. It will work but I want an alternator and possibly FI . I have all the FI parts except an ECM. Only real problem is ground clearance. The Eldo is just a 650lb minibike. Stator and Rotor ,new front cover and front mount adapter is the easiest setup with carbs.
    But as the world's greatest Eldo build. I expect more because I'm not changing my thread title to Lesman's Last Stand.
