Excellent decision to acquire a Guzzi, you will love it, especially if you like something away from the norm.
Welcome and feel safe to seek help or information from this site, it will be readily given.
Ride safe.

G'day Matt,

mmm, Pottsville ay?? I have seen the white knight once or twice, but have not been able to connect.
I'm just over on the western side of the highway...
Always beer in the fridge!

Thanks for the welcome guys (WardenTM, Waterbottle & Overholt13),

Seems I need to clarify a few things regarding who I is...

I bought the GRiSO in 2012 as an ex-demo with the screen and the Termi pipe, I then committed the unholy act of adding a certain after-market fueling remedy Shocked and wish I had been connected with you guys sooner... anyways, bike is running reasonably well regardless.

Yep, she's up for tyres Pete / Bill, and as of today is now sporting Michelin Road 5's... and tyre thread "contribution" is always such fun Rolling Eyes

Pete, she's still running flat tappets but is exhibiting some "dull" performance characteristics (boggy off the lights) and needs tappet clearance done every 5000km, LHS gets rattly... all services have been carried out by Guzzi dealer, so might be time to pull the rollerisation chain...

Sidrat, she's just clocked up 70,000km today... and I bought her with 1100km on the clock in 2012...

GHTE, I'm very much pleased to own and ride something a little "different" even if there have been some interesting challenges along the way... I always get a grin up when I'm out in the cane fields and singing along over 5000rpm... ahhh, those long sweepers... Honk it up to redline...

Bahamazoo, you probably seen me out solo around Mooball or out Mur'bah way... always nice to know there's other Guzzisti around these parts...

Thanks again for the welcome guys, I'm sure there will be plenty of fodder to chew as the days go by...

If you've been adjusting the valves every 5000 stop riding it now! If you can't get a kit from Guzzi we have an 'A' kit in stock.

Thanks for the offer Bahamazoo... there is every possibility I am going to undo the Power Commander / Autotune, open airbox, db killer out mods, broadband O2 sensor etc. I'm thinking to bolt the stock airbox back on and re-instal the stock o2 sensor & db killer in the Termi pipe... Then it will be Beetle time... I see this somewhere in my future, not too soon though...

Cheers for the welcome too Anguscameron66...

Just like to say that I've rollerised the GRiSO (thanks Pete for seeing me right with the 'A' Kit). Good job done by Tom (Don Newell Motorcycles). Bike runs well, like it's breathing properly again. Seems to pull better in the mid range and beyond.
