I've been a Grisoso for 2 weeks now. A proud and enthusiastic owner of a black 1200 8V, after eight years of riding a Rosso Mandello. There's also a red Le Mans I in my garage. The wife rode a Lario and a Nevada, but has had to give up riding because of aching finger joints.

I'm looking forward to getting the GRiSO into a near perfect ride with the help I'm getting from the input here in the Ghetto. Right now my 8V still runs really rough on even throttle if the revs are between 2700 and 3500. On a curvy secondary road doing 90-120 km/h and revs over 4000: HEAVEN.

VERY nice! Welcome!  Please post photo of you LM!!
cheers

PS, is there a baffle, or "db killer" in your muffler? If not, put one back in! Mine ran like that when I bought it, until I put the baffle back in my aftermarket muffler(exhaust). What muffler is that?

The muffler is a QuaD and it has both a cat and a dbkiller on. Tried it for a while without, but the sound was like ridiculous popping high pitch note. Of course, I'm used to the mighty thunder of open Mistrals of my old V11 Laughing

I've also changed the plugs and caps as described in the forum, which helped a bit. Riding high octane 98 fuel evens up further, but the engine still studders noticeably.

Throttle bodies balanced? Valves checked/adjusted? Stock map?

Valves checked, TB:s are in balance now, Stock map most likely, no knowledge which update. I'll check that when I get the wiring for Guzzidiag. The Black Devil is soooo much more complicated than the V11!

G'day L
Welcome from us all down under in Tasmania.
Enjoy that black beauty.
Hope you get it sorted soon.
Check that you have no air leaks around your rubber boots to your TBs
Stay safe and warm

I had the Quat-D on both of my 1100s, it's a lovely pipe, great sound! One of the pipes now resides on Fresh Egg's 8V.
