PostSubject: hi from Hameln   Wed Aug 12, 2015 9:08 am

hi all,
was looking for a new seat! I was lucky and found the Ghettos Very Happy
Me? born in Cardiff/Wales and landed in Germany.
I´v been riding Guzzi`s since 1979 V50²-V50³-V65TT-LM³ all long gone.
Bought my 850T as box of bits in 1980, now with sidecar which i still use
and bought my used GRiSO 850 2008 with 10,000kms on the clock
I love the T but the GRiSO`s the workhorse.
Done some changes to the GRiSO to make life easyer,footpegs/riser/stepper mod.changed the Mistral db eater and made my own drilled it out until I got the best performance and added an oil pressure gauge for the rainy days.
looking forward to some reading.
a few pics(if it works??):  GRiSO me and my son last week on the Sweden/Norway boarder.

Those Zundapps look like lots of fun. And it appears you've been feeding that lad of yours well!

Good Day Mike

Welcome to the forum and you have a gorgeous bike!!! I love the engine in silver, fits perfect with the red!. The oil pressure gauge is a great idea, first time i see that!

I wonder at the need for the oil cooler on the GRiSO 1100/ and maybe the 1200 ?

The 850 generates perhaps some less engine heat than the bigger engines but ........
Also Guzzis of old didn't have coolers either , and you would think with the jugs sticking out there in the wind they would be pretty efficient at cooling .
Other MFG of air cooled bikes of the past didn't have them either BMW for example ...
I don't think HD has one still and their motors inline vees ...
Just curious

Hi,

Here in Germany on some motorways their are no speed limits Smile ,when its hot ca. 30+ degrees I´v senn the oil pressure
drop down to 2 bar /28lbs on the motorway , on a 190kmh/120mph wont go any faster Evil or Very Mad  20 mile dash,never pushed it below 2 bar !
when you drop the speed the oil pressure goes back up to normal 3-4bar.
