Thanks for all the welcome messages, but I've had a bit of a bad start, the bike had an attempted theft, they cut the front brake hose, and ruined the front disk, any ideas where i can get good quality replacements for these parts for a 2013 GRiSO? Im in the UK.

Many Thanks Guys.

Try Twiggers in Loughborough.

Or Teo Lamers in the Netherlands.

Hi Tommy, presume they wrecked the disk (just one or both ?) and brake lines because you had a disk lock, else it would be hard to destroy just trying to wheel it away. Anyway there are loads of front disks around on ebay, gutsibits, TLM; the rear one is a rocking horse shit availability.......presume at 2013 it's rollerised ?

Hey Tommy, just up the road from me :-) good to see another local (ish) GRiSO rider. Gutsibits are probably best for stock, Twiggers in Loughborough have given up selling Guzzi's and now only do servicing, which is a shame.

Welcome aboard, if you need a ride out, let me know :-)

Hi, Sure Sidrat, lets go for a ride sometime, good roads out near Lincoln!

Here is a picture of how it looks at the moment...

Hey Tommy. 
                  Now that I have access to a device to actually see the pics being posted, this nice person cut the brake line too Shocked   WTF, was this to teach you a lesson for not making it easy to steal the bike ? What did he hope to gain by this C- act

Hey up Tommy, do you live in Bransholme Wink Find it hard to believe that this could happen in Uk`s City of Culture

Bad luck matey, you could try Gutsibits they advertise on the Bay of E. If it is good advice and service you need then as said earlier Twiggers of Loughboro.

Haha, no not Bransholme, this happened before I picked up the bike with its original owner in Swansea, but anyway, here is an update, new red lines from ProBrake Germany,new disks and paddock stand, ready to install this weekend. I need to know what torque setting disk bolts and brake line bolts need? Can anyone help me out? Also what DOT brake fluid? I have some DOT 4 so hopefully that will work.

DOT 4 is fine. Don't overtighten the brake lines less they leak. A firm nip all they need. Disc retaining screws are torqued to 30Nm.
