Well fooked if I know!

Sorry.......had a moment Twisted Evil



Seriously though, anyone put any thought into the idea of trying to making money with their bikes or do you just enjoy it for the leisure, sport or coffee runs?

Todd over at guzzitech makes money with his! you can rent one of his modified and tuned guzzi's when you're in malibu!

I can save $3000 a month with mine, just take my OCMD pills and leave the bike the truck alone.

That's it! Drug delivery for shut-ins, seniors and the financially over extended. (prescription of course  Rolling Eyes )

On second though I'm a bit too curious and it would get ugly and probably painful.

If you want to know how great a GRiSO can be, ride mine.

You're not the bloke who has been stiffed to the tune of many thousands of dollars. I have never told the story. Nor will I.

I just don't like seeing others lining up to have their wallets raped.

None of us will ever have a clue then, will we?
Guzzi-Tech has provided good service to me. My bike runs much better than stock. That's all I know.
Sorry there's bad blood between you, sincerely.

Been on both sides of a similar situation. I lost many thousands (for me) in a loan w/contract to what I thought was a good and decent guy a few years ago never to be repaid a cent nor see the fucker again. I would imagine he had a number of people in his life who still have good relations with him. The resulting feelings never really go away completely and I'd make his life miserable every day to put it kindly until I was repaid if I could.

On the flip side I have had two good experiences buying items from Todd.

Sympathizing with both sides of an argument.

Ahh, a bitch of being human. Time to get back on the GRiSO and continue to try to put my own loss behind me! errrrgh!

Pete, I hope it's made up to you in another way. You do help a lot of people on this site and it's appreciated.

the guy offers a money back guarantee on all his products.. not to mention his tech support is second to NONE. there's really no reason for anyone to be that upset about his contributions to the community. i for one am extremely happy with his work.
also, i think it's worth mentioning that every respectable euro tuner is doing the exact same thing Todd is doing in america for these engines. opening up the exhaust, and intake and letting them breathe, and then matching the a/f ratio to said mods. no one in europe is complaining about how their bikes run with free-flowing exhaust or intakes.
look at ghezzi-brian, daes mototec, or even ipothesys. they're all offering wide open exhaust systems and intake mods.
if what he's doing is really that bad, people worldwide would be complaining how their bikes ran like shit after getting rid of the mid-pipe or end can for a more free flowing design. same goes for the intake. companies like that wouldn't be around if they were ruining engines for people.

I too have had some dealings with Todd, while I haven't been ripped off he certainly doesn't appreciate any mention on his forum, of this forum.
Try it, he will delete the post immediately.
And if you tell another member of this here forum via PM, it isn't private, Todd will contact you and tell you off in very harsh words.

At least here you comments/support of Todd are left out in the open for all to see, and Beetle in his own "special" Twisted Evil way will kindly invite you to leave.

I used to get on well with Todd. I've bought some stuff from him, and I've been a GT forum sponsor. Right until I started making GRiSO maps. Now I've been banned from the forum (without notice) and you can't even mention the ghetto or me.

That cool, it's his forum and it's there for him to sell his wares and rape your wallet. Second to none tech support? No. I know, because  I've been at the receiving end of the tech support. Todd doesn't understand the 8V at all.

Neither do the Europeans who are opening up the intake and exhaust and calling it a 'performance mod'. Sure, you can increase the fuel and fiddle with the maps to make them run OK. I'm sure I could do that even with that poxy Ipothesys. One of them (Daes I think) replaces the GI with carbs. That old gem, 'carbs are better'. Snicker. Performance? No. Poor VE? Yep.

You want to call me out and say they know better than me or Pete? Knock yourself out. I don't give a shit. It's my way or the highway if you want my help. Arrogant pontificating egotistical know-it-all prick that I am.
Oh, and let's not forget I'm Australian, so I'm a cunt and a twat.



Edit: Added 'prick' (thanks Wayne).

Really? I was never refunded a cent, parts didn't arrive, the parts that did arrive didn't fit and didn't work. I sent him a very expensive set of supposedly super-dooper European camshafts and tappets to use with it. They were never used, the exhaust pipe I bought from him was a disaster, didn't fit and destroyed the bike's performance.

Look, I really don't care if people want to waste their money on junk spruiked by a charlatan but I won't encourage people to deal with someone who has no qualifications, little mechanical knowledge and to whom the laws of physics are a closed book.

I couldn't give a shit if Ghezzi Brian, Motec or Ipothesys sell a 'One size fits nothing', poorly thought out but convincingly presented theory of what will *Work* with the Guzzi engine. Not all engines are the same, they pump differently and the parameters that govern their VE are all different. And THAT my friends is the crux of the matter. It has nothing to do with 'Letting it breathe and getting the AFR right' if the harmonics of the induction and exhaust tracts aren't matched to the head design, valve sizes, port shape, cam timing and probably a few other things I can't be bothered listing the VE is going to be well below optimal, especially at certain points in the engines load and speed cycles. Sorry. Basic engineering and the laws of physics. Not rocket science.

If living in a luxury pad in the Malibu hills give someone more credibility than living in a country town in Australia? So be it! I can't argue with stupid. I will continue to warn people against stuff I know doesn't work and can be seriously damaging to their vehicles and take the piss out of obvious dumbfuckery and ignorance.

OK, I get it. So your biggest problem, the way I see it, is you resent Todd because he blocks mention of your maps and this forum on his buisness's site because you give away FREE maps for the GRiSO and other late model Guzzis. He sells performance related products that you KNOW are a joke in your learned experience, and point that out all the time.

Point of information. Not everyone cares about what's best/optimal average tuning for their bike. Some folks want BIG, BAD, LOUD bikes and don't give a rat's ass about anything other than bragging rights and $$$ they have spent.

I believe I have brought up the subject in the past of you monetizing your fantastic maps and other talents, so you know I am in your corner.

You're a Socialist? Maybe you don't think anyone should make money on knowledge, kind of an "open source" mentality?
I've seen this happen in the industry I work in and seen folks copy designs and circuits and dilute the market to the point that the original engineer couldn't make a living. That's just wrong.

Put a price on you maps and stop being a martyr. Folks will pay for your hard work even if you are a cunt!

(Scratching head?) Why is it that the default description for anything non-commercial seems to be an accusation of 'Socialism'?

The problem I have is that a lot of this stuff is BAD ENGINEERING and in some cases downright dangerous as well as the results sometimes being horribly expensive. It also give the marque a bad name. I have a long, long history with Guzzi. Probably longer than Todd has been alive! I don't like people dissing Guzzi for stuff that isn't their fault. Good lord, they're quite capable of destroying their own reputation, they need no help! Very Happy

Yes, I fully understand that there are people who want the loudest, most expensively *Improved* motorbike and the fact it runs worse than it did before they started spending money doesn't matter to them. I think it's weird but I know it's out there. I just get really pissed off that people who spruiked this stuff claim it works better. It doesn't, really, it doesn't.

For some reason I can't post a new thread so this is tagged on here.

Game on.

We'll build a big bore GRiSO using OUR tuning practices and publish the results.

We know that cunts with no idea will say anything to prove that our engine is shit or could be improved by 'Opening it up' but we'll at least be honest.

I thought of posting up a dyno chart from a TV-4 and claiming it was from a GRiSO. Any bloody GRiSO. Just to see heads explode. Unfortunately I don't do that, at least not without giving it away a few minutes later as it would be great fun.

We aren't promising huge power, as I've said many times before without major cam changes you won't alter the way the engine breathes and if you were to get a huge, (Read more than 10%.) increase in outright power you will be making major sacrifices elsewhere in the range of both RPM AND throttle angle, (How often do you ride at WFO at any engine speed?). I do believe though that we will build something that would make an imbecile weep under 'Road' conditions.

Sure we sacrifice the extra plug and intake plenum but we gain a shitload more throttle area. From 4,000 up it should be a monster!

Nope. It's because Socialists are limited in # of threads. Sorry. The revolution will not be bloggified! Tweetified?
