Well. I'm a dumbass.

Attempted to do a throttle body balance last night, and put a little too much torque on the air bleed screw on the right side throttle body, and it sheered in half. haha.

And of course, the air bleed screw itself isn't available from Piaggio separate from a $1400 throttle body assembly. So, I suppose it's time to prostrate before the altar of GRiSO Gods here and hope somebody has spare set a throttle bodies laying around that I could have the air bleed screw from? As far as I know all the 1200 8v motors use the same throttle bodies so a Norge or Stelvio part should work too.

I'd pay postage plus something for your time, of course!

Anybody?

Who makes the throttle bodies? Webber Marelli or Magneti Marelli?
Guarantee that screw will be the same on almost every Ducati, MV Augusta, Benelli, Alpha, Fiat, Ferrari etc.

That's an excellent idea! If nobody comes along here to save my bacon, I can probably source the part directly from the manufacturer of the throttles rather than Piaggio. It looks like Weber Marelli makes the throttle bodies as far as I can tell.

I've got a munted set. Gimme an address. You do NOT have to torque them. Even the closed one should just be gently seated you over-muscled meathead.

Oh Jesus, the air bleed screw! I forgot about that part of the arcane synching ceremony. You gently seat both and then crack one open to...

...I forget what it is supposed to do. Balance at idle?
