My owners are sending me to Tassie for two weeks to fix their foul machines. I'll be in Hobart for a week or so, then up to Launceston on the 19/20/21st. Any locals who would like to catch up for a beer and chew the fat Guzzi, get remapped, throw rocks at me or call me names to my face, sign up now. Very Happy

G'day Mark
Are you heading up the North West ? I live in Ulverstone, around 10 mins from the ferry.
We have a warm dry bed and a feed if you need.
Could also find a cheap red or two also.
If your not coming this way I could try to get up to Launie. I'm sure Greame (tassieDevil) who lives in Launie would meet up also for a feed and a beer or two.
Would be good to meet up.

I'll be wherever the machines break. Monday & Tuesday next week I'm in Hobart. Looks like I'll have to go up to Launceston Wednesday or Thursday, then back to Hobart. Mrs Beetle is flying down for a long weekend. Then back to Launceston Wednesday the following week (or earlier if required).

PM received. My plans are already buggered by crappy ultrasound machines and titty squishers. Mrs Beetle is now installed here with me and I had planned a slow sightseeing drive up to Launceston tomorrow with a long lunch then a quick visit with a gamma camera, but looks like decrepit ultrasounds and titty squishers will keep me here in Hobart. Plans change hourly during the day.

I may be able to get up there on Monday arvo. Regardless, I am definitely heading up there on Wednesday. I have a two day service on a SPECT/CT on Thursday/Friday. So we could make arrangements for Wednesday evening or Friday evening. I expect a late night at work Thursday.

Hi Mark and Trevor, next Wed or Fri sound good to me.

I can come and pick you up Mark from where you are staying and bring you back to mine for the mayhem that is my house. From there the 3 of us can head off for a froffy or two and something to eat of course Smile .

Cheers Graham.

A big thank you to Mark for the visit and help. Great to meet you and Trevor and to catch up and have a beer or two.

I got home and realized that I didn't take one photo (pardon the pun) to 'mark' the occasion - doh!

Anyway I can't wait to take the big G out for a blast, now that she is running so much better.

I just have to hunt down a db killer for the termi pipe I bought, so I can start the well trodden path of shedding the pounds on the G.

It was great meeting you and Trevor as well.  I still reckon your throttle bodies have been diddled with. Let me know how she goes.

I was planning to take pics too, but forgot in all the excitement. Oh, there was this pic of the half finished schooner of James Squire Pale Ale:

Thanks Mark/Graham for a great day, the Grisoing was good and the beer/company also.
We had 100% Tas Ghetto participation, any other state match this ?
My bike received the Beetle treatment and how can I say it - a far better bike, prior it had raw lumpy power, now it has smooth vibration less power, fantastic.

Fuck! OK, so how much equipment has Trevor got? Can we un-fuck them easily by innerneck or is this a new TB job? I reckon I can un-fuck them in most cases now.

It's Graham's 8V I was taking about. Both air bleeds were open, which suggests either the PO or their dealer didn't know how to tune them, or they haven't been touched since it was uncrated. Also, turning the bell crank screw seemed to have little affect. In the end, we got it's close as possible, but even when opening the left hand air bleed at idle seemed to make little difference. It's still not right, but it's way better than what it was.

We also nipped up the intake boots. The paint on the throttle stop seemed untouched. As did the paint on the linkage.


Trevor's 1100 was just about perfect.

Took the bike to work this morning, unfortunately still konked out twice Sad when pulling up at the first couple of intersections. After that I kept the revs up with the throttle as I was not real keen on starting the day getting rear ended by an impatient or inattentive driver.

It was around 10am so not zero or sub zero conditions and the bike had been in the garage under the house where the insulated heating vents run so it read 11 degrees on start up.

Looks like a trip to Hobart is in order to see if Milton Matuschca can sort it out for me.

I might have a go at cleaning the throttle bodies, as I noticed there was a thread with someone similar issues to mine and it was the culprit....will see.

Cheers Taz.

If the TB's are filthy the butterflies won't close fully so when the TPS is re-set its calibrated to the wrong throttle opening. The usual cause for them getting shitty is over-filling with oil. If there is too much in the engine it overwhelms the condenser system and you get a lot over vapour and oil in the air Oz and it clogs the butterflies. Whip your air filter out and use a mirror to look up the inlet trumpets. If the butterflies are covered in varnish and man kits time to pull them off for a good seeing to. Don't mess with the throttle stop screws but get them squeaky clean and then re-balance the TB's when they are back on the bike and re-set the TPS and self learners.

Hi Graham
Sorry to hear of your woes !!!!
If your going to have a go at those TBs I would like to be there.
I am not a mechanic and I have never seen these taken off or cleaned, but if your going to have a go at it I am prepared to come up and help if I can.
Two heads are better than one even if mine is a bit old and cloudy.

No worries Trev, I'll have a look first and see if it is as Pete describes, then I'll let you know what I decide to do.

Cheers Graham.
