Hi Karl, great bike, it will really grow on you Smile

I've only just started rollerizing my 2008 after Pete and others here finally got thru my thick skull that although the bike runs fine and the tappet clearances are perfect, the flatties will be worn, ... and they were.

It's easy to check, so I recommend having a look now before you add many miles to it.

Pete Ropers video on how to remove the left hand cylinder cambox to check for wear. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
(I put mine back together and rode it for a while after checking as the GRiSO is just so addictive to ride!)

The other thing I did, which transformed my GRiSO, was to have the suspension reconditioned as my rear shock was knackered and way undersprung.

cheers

Thanks all for the welcome,next plan of action is to get it rollerised.Trying to get enough service history together to see if Piaggio will supply the parts on warranty. I live in hope..

Make up your mind, Karl.  Is it Peterborough or Hope?

Very Happy

Seriously, welcome and best wishes on an easy-on-the-wallet fix.
