Stumbled across this Forum recently and decided one more Guzzi forum won't hurt. In the past, have spent most of my time on Guzzi Tech, and an occasional visit to WG.
I've got an 07 1100 that I bought brand new in early 2012. I debated the 4 valve 1100, versus an 8 valve, but just couldn't resist the deal I got on the "crate back" bike.
It has been a great 3 and a half years of ownership so far!

Bioman,
The grab handles are Stucchi Luigi. I got em from MG Cycle. Installed them for my wife just after getting the bike. 3 months later she decided she would rather ride her own - ended up getting her a Ducati Monster 696. Even though they aren't needed for a passenger anymore (if you look you will see I even removed the passenger pillions), I have kept the handles on the bike because they are good for moving the bike around, putting on the work stand, etc.
The seat is a stock seat pan that I cut about 3 inches of length off of, reshaped the rear foam and then recovered. the current cover is a Luimoto full leather cover with suede center section - very comfortable. I had a Corbin "Gunfighter" (that I am glad to see Beetle is still enjoying Smile ) that was super comfortable, but was a little wide for me and my vertically challenged legs.

welcome....nice to see a 1100 , and a black one as well " slightly faster " yeah know Wink
did you have to fart around with the mapping re your exhaust system for the 4 valve ?

I'm running an open air box with BMC filter, along with the GTRX "Y" pipe and GTRX Shorty exhaust. I also have Todd's remapped ECU, plus a Power Commander V with dual channel Auto Tune. I was running a custom map from Todd built for these specifics, but ended up having a custom map built having the bike dyno tuned locally (not really enough of an improvement over Todd's map to justify the cost) but I now have a huge improvement over a stock 1100. Big increase in power and torque, plus runs much cooler than the factory mapping. I did the "improvements" in stages and the first upgrade I did was airbox/filter and a slip on exhaust. I had the ECU remapped at the same time. The remapping then was worth the $ for how much it improved the fueling response, smoothed out the power band and lowered the operating temps.

nice... so no issues then ....seems that the 1100 is tuner friendly.. can I ask what you ended up with as far as torque and HP figures re the Dyno  curious as to the increase over stock ...
Also I am wondering if in fact the PC5 with AT proved worth while or do you think a remap could stand alone ..
Thankyou

If you are considering the PC-V/Autotune route check the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], there are at least two of them available there.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], in NSW - Australia

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], in Seattle, WA - USA (including the CNC airbox rim at no extra charge.)

KeenerKeen07,
Tuning was done on a Factory Pro 4 gas dyno.
The results (corrected to compare to Dynojet #'s since most dyno results I've seen have been on Dynojet's):
Max RWHP: 84.26
Max Torque: 67.74
I unfortunately did not dyno the bike before starting the mods, so I don't have "before and after" numbers for my bike on the same dyno (the only really accurate judge of how effective changes are). From what I have found for dyno results on stock G11's, my peak horsepower over "typical" stock #'s is decent but isn't phenomenal. The butt dyno feels like a bigger improvement than the numbers would indicate - probably because the power curves are much improved over a typical stock curve profile. Riding my G11 back to back with another 07 G11 with just a slip on Mistral exhaust and no other mods that a friend now owns(no fueling remapping yet), the difference in performance is HUGE.
I am especially pleased with the torque curve. My torque curve is nice and fat with a huge torque "plateau" (less than 10% variation) spread from 3000rpm's to 7008rpm's (less than 5% variation from 3487rpm's - 6506rpm).
From my experience, each "step" in the performance mod chain has been worth the expense - except maybe my last one. . The only step that I question the "return on investment" was going from the PC-V with single channel Autotune with Todd's "canned" tune to the dual channel Autotune with the custom dyno tune.
