So my buddy Don down in California ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] here) is angling to make a deal on an '09 GRiSO 8V with only 966 miles on the odo.

Here is the Craigslist advert

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Bike has some minor scratching from a low speed get off (valve cover, exhaust, clutch lever) but nothing major. Seller describes what seems to be a case of "startus interuptus" which he can square away toot suite if that's the case. He's bringing a jump box and tools to clean the terminals and see if he can at least get it to turn over. Bike got it's first (break-in service a year ago at 800 some miles. Poor GRiSO hasn't even gotten a right flogging yet...

Asking price is $5000, but maybe the deal will sweeten up given the several hundreds needed for cosmetic repair and who knows what if worse than poor battery/ground connections.

Hopefully we'll have another Don Abbondio conversion tonight!

Ask if the recall was done on it? That's a bargain!! I would buy that to build something else at that cheap price!! Good luck!

Yes, the tappet recall was completed before initial delivery mid 2009. Both Moto International and Pauldaytona here ran the VIN for me. Other than the cosmetics and starter troubles, it seems pretty solid.

Good deal if it's only cosmetics and startus interruptus.

Trying to figure out what's hanging down in front of the right header?

That would be the left header, weird lighting.

Four...   Very Happy

Don has been in deep Guzzi karma deficit since buying his Stelvio, highly deserving of some good GRiSO fortune!

Step away from the hamsters and elderberries.

I may have paid a bit much but I am very pleased with my bike so I'm good. Smile
