Condolences.

Will never understand such things.

Cretins abound.

Sorry, your description is a bit vague. Do you mean the pivot pin that the brake lever mounts on? Or the side plate/pork chop? Perhaps if you could post a pic?

2008 you say? Has it been rollerised yet?

Hi Pete

Side plate, snapped at the bottom just above the brake peddle. So the brake is hanging. Not sure what you mean about rollerised.

Cheers Ian

Just read my post back and was full of typos!

So I'll make it a little clearer. Sorry for that. The brake peddle has been broken off. The peddle it's self is fine, but the bracket is broken. The large black plate that runs up the side of the bike which the foot peg is also attached too.

Need to locate one so does anyone know where I can get one from?

Ian, the right hand pork chop (Part # 977052) is about £200 new from Fowlers:

Or there is a used one on ebay for £60 plus VAT and postage.  It's from an 1100, but will fit the 1200.

You might be able to repair the old one if you can find someone to weld it?

£132 from Teo. Dunno if that includes all taxes or not then there'd be freight on top. I've got a couple of second handies but the cost of sending you one would be the killer.

As for rollerising? Do a quick search in the technical sections. It's imperative you deal with that issue above all others.

Thanks Pete. I checked rollerising and looked at my service record but can't see that the cams have been done. I do blat it at high speed on a daily basis, (I've swapped from a Ducati, I'm a hooligan!) so will that help to keep things running?
I have a good service history so do I approach Guzzi for the change or is it up to me?

Nothing will save it. The problem is that Guzzi won't supply any machine with a kit pre-emptively. By the time they get noisy it's way too late and other damage may be occuring. Damage will though be clearly visible by 10,000 miles in most cases and usually in far less. Getting the top end inspected is neither time consuming or expensive and once the damage can be photographed a claim can be submitted.

If you have a complete service history, (You'll be given the bum's rush so quick your feet won't even touch the floor as they kick you out if you don't!) the factory should provide a kit but you'll have to pay for the installation. On a 2008 you'll need a 'C' kit and to do the job properly that's about six hours.

If for whatever reason you can't get a kit from Guzzi you'll have to do it yerself. A 'C' kit is £1,043 from Teo but you can do it cheaper by using a 'B' kit and some other bits. It's still not cheap.

Bugger. Mine has done 22k. But saying that runs sweet as a nut. I shall investigate.

Thanks for all the responses. I've ordered the one off eBay should be with me tomorrow so I can fit it in the evening when I get back from work. Have had to use the Ducati today, but the tax runs out day after tomorrow so fingers crossed I can be back on the road with the Gruso!

On another positive note, contacted the seller re-rollerising and he says it's been done! He's getting me the details of the garage that did it so I can contact them for full confirmation. Smiles all round!

There was an earlier recall that swapped out the early chilled cast iron tappets for forged steel ones with a DLC coating. This is NOT the fix.

Identifying if it has actually been rollerised is as easy as pulling a rocker cover and taking a look. I would strongly advise that you do this to confirm that it has actually been rollerised not just *updated*.

There are a host of pictures already up of the visible differences between the roller and flat tappet top ends but if you can't find them post up a pic of the cambox from directly above and I'll identify it for you.

Excellent. When removing the spark plug caps do not grab them from the top and try to pull them off, you'll damage them. Insert a long, thin screwdriver through the cooling tunnel just above the exhaust header and lever them off from below. After this you can simply take the rocker cover off and have a squizz.

Welcome aboard, we all ride them like hooligans at times, they seem to urge you on :-)

You do need to check the tappets, mine failed at 2,200 miles!
