PostSubject: New to GRiSO - what to look for   Mon Feb 12, 2018 4:12 am

Hello all! I am new to the forum and new to the Moto Guzzi line. Having seen my first GRiSO last year I have been on the hunt for one. A friend found me a 2010 with 11,000 miles on it with no service history. Super clean bike with an Arrow exhaust.
So here is the question; other than the tappet issue what should I look for on the bike? Over the years I have bought lots of used bikes so I know to look for normal stuff but did not know if I needed to check on anything specific to the GRiSO.

Look forward to reading and learning as much as I can here, just needed to ask this now because I am going to see the bike in the morning.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me on this!

Hello, the only major issue is the rollerization of the tappets. All the other things, apart from startus interuptus and a beetle map for the hesitant running are typical of mose bikes of its age and build.

Good luck! and post some pictures

Swingarm and shock linkage bearings will need greasing. That's it. Mapping it up will make it far more fun.

Look for oil leaks too. That can be a major repair to fix (rear main seal).
