Hello,

At the advice of Hagan (don't hold that against me) and based on a new to me 2011 Tenni SE I've joined the Ghetto .  I've only gotten a few rides in but so far so good.

Welcome! No farting required in your case, as you've done the right thing and posted a pic with your first post.

I deny categorically knowing this new member, and recommend that management consider ejecting him so that he not sully further our august company.   Very Happy

Seriously, welcome, George.  The GRiSO may be new to your stable, but you have a worthy Moto Guzzi pedigree, including, as I recall, an EV with the largest tank known to the marque.   Shocked  

Bill

Thanks guys.  I bought this bike to play around on the country roads near the house while keeping the EVT for longer trips.  And even though I told Bill how much I enjoyed riding the bike naked, I did tart it up a little with some light touring farkles.  The bike came with the tail rack and bag, and it also had the C Bow mounts minus the bags.  I added those, the dead sheep, and the Deflector DX.  Good news is you can undress it in just seconds.

Wowsie! I didn't realise.

Is this just a 'Bill Hagan and some of the chaps' thing, or are we all required to enter into the spirit?
It's cold over here, you know.

Not to keen on riding a bike naked, especially considering it is only 4C this morning.

Naked bike or riding naked?  Now I'm confused Smile

In addition to her being naked she's a flatty too.  I've got a dealer appointment next week to see if we can get her upgrded to a Kit B Cup...

Nudity aside this will be an interesting case.  The bike was sold new by Rider's Hill (closed), I bought it from a BMW dealer, and didn't come with service records.  Another dealer is going to do the inspection and support the claim, but I don't know how it will be treated if the bike has no service history.  I'm hoping the issue is known enough that they won't hassle me but who knows. I already have my own picture at 8k miles:

It's about to go downhill fast. :-( I can link you to photos of mine if you want to see... that will soon be a gouged, concave cup and the steel debris will be in the oil. The other head is bound to be the same. My first tappets, which were different material, lasted 2,500 miles from new. The second set which are probably the same as yours, lasted around 7,000 / 7,500miles.

It's a good job you found it now! Smile

Please do keep us informed on your success/failure regarding Piaggio supplying the parts pro-bono. I'll be in the market soon, and also can't resist the Tenni... so rollerization is most likely in my future.

The boob job is complete and she is no longer a flattie Very Happy

Matthews Fun Machines in Matthews, NC performed the procedure for 4.5 hours labor and Piaggio provided the Kit B. It took about 4 weeks for the kit to come in from Italy. Another GRiSO saved! Now I just have to get out and ride Smile
