This seems to be a special order part. I'm wondering if anyone has a good condition, used (non-crashed), valve cover I might be able to purchase. Or a brand new one located somewhere in the United States (international shipping kills my budget).

Perhaps this needs to be moved to the Mercato di GRiSO section of the forum. In addition, bump. Still looking for readily available valve cover, used or new, and a source in the US to get them.

I have not called them, but after perusing their site this weekend for a couple hours, I came to the conclusion that they do not have one in stock.

AFI have one listed on their 'Moto Guzzi Used parts' website:

However:
- Its for a 'Late Model' 1200
- Its had a slight 'crunch'

Dunno if this helps, but its all I could find.

Also the 2V Sport cover "looks" the same and probably is - so might be worth a look in that direction. No, mine are not for sale!

Norge/Breva are different. The'll fit but won't look right. If you want to use them you'll need the different plug lead covers as well.

Right - I checked into the Breva valve cover as a replacement. Wouldnt work 100% right IIRC.

Those covers are identical to stock Bellagio rocker covers, internally mine have the # 05.02.35.30 cast into them.
I swapped my covers for V11 tappet covers, so does that mean V11 will fit G11/B11? V11 covers are a big visual improvement in my eyes.

For the plug lead that goes over the top, get a longer lead and run it around under the inlet manifold.
Bella still had rubber loop cast into manifold rubber to locate the lead.

Any Squarefin covers will fit any other Squarefin. The head casting and mating surface are identical on all of the 2VPC Squarefin heads.

I recall (before I was persona non grata) seeing a post on the Guzzitech site that the V11 covers would fit the G11.

Pete,

The only issue with this would be that plastic engine guard. I shaved off about 4mm of it going down - the only damage was a scuffed valve cover with a small (1cm) crack. I assume without that plastic guard, my cylinder head + valve cover would have been toast. Correct?

The V11 valve covers, while certainly pleasing to the eye, do not offer the same level of protection I would think.

Usually when you trowel a Guzzi you loose a rocker cover. Doesn't matter what model or what covers you have or whether you have some form of auxiliary protection. Even if you have aftermarket protectors they are generally known as Rocker protection bars, not Rocker Cover protection bars. Its just the nature of the beast, you toss it? You loose a cover!

Hrm. Alright.

I wonder if the Cal 1100 covers would fit - obviously will need plug wires/leads (will the ones from the Cal fit too?). Those covers look pretty svelte and would work out nicely I think. Plus I found some for relatively cheap - used, but not damaged (as far as the pics show).

Thanks again Pete, for your insight.

As Pete said
"Any Squarefin covers will fit any other Squarefin" So Yes.
