Do any body know if the Valve Covers labeled "late" and "early" in the guzzi parts catalog, fit any engine the same?

Nope. The early type fit early, pre late 2011 motors that have the 'Long' plug tube that seals with an o-ring in the rocker cover.

The 'Later' type fit engines where the cambox is machined so that a neoprene gasket of the same cross section as the rocker cover gasket is used to seal the plug hole and although there is still a plug tube it only goes between the head and the bottom of the cambox.

It is my understanding the change was made due to corrosion causing issues with leaks with the o-ring in the rocker cover system.

Damn. There is quite a price difference between them. How can I check if mine is late or early? Is there a engine # or any other way to know ?

Take it off and look.

If you can't do that then peer down the tube. If there is a 3-4mm black stripe about 2cm down the tube it's a late type.

If anyone has the early type and needs O-rings I have some extras still in the packaging. Free, I'll even spring for the stamp.
