Enjoy the bike.
Once sorted, Guzzis are as reliable as an anvil.

Mine did this today, luckily in my drive so I didn't have to push her too far! Trouble is that I can't order the part till next year Rolling Eyes Gives me a chance to work on the bit of bolt left in the side plate tho'

Hello
I hope you'll be successful pulling out the remaining of the pivot from the pigplate and will have the replacement parts soon! As you read I couldn't pull it out, was a minor issue as everything was cover under warranty! took almost 3 week to a month to have the replacement parts, but all in all everything was ok at the end!
Last summer, mid-July with my wife as a passenger we did a group ride (wrong group! Sad ) and fell on the road. All our protective gear did a great job, us and the GRiSO had minor damage! again it was a bit long to have all the parts, had to replace the head valve cover, brake lever and passenger peg (minor scratches on other parts Sad )but my dealer handled the issue very well. For us, well it took some time to heal but now we're good!
Have a great holidays and be safe on the road!

OK, I have removed the pork chop & the bolt has sheared well below the surface (well, it would, wouldn't it?) so we are soaking it in WD40 tonight while I work out how I can drill it for my stud extractor without ruining the expensive alloy part . . .

WD-40 is fine for removing stickers and chewing gum, but terrible as a lubricant. Use any of the old time penetrating oils. Then find a set of left hand, or reverse twist, drill bits. Often you can get lucky and not even need the extractors.

50% Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) and 50% Acetone, make the best penetrating fluid. It's what most of them are made from anyway. Make some yourself, and satisfy the inner chemist in you.

Acetone - is that Hammerite thinner? If so I can try that Thumbs Up

Update on mine, I did the TQF/thinners trick and drilled through the bit of stuck bolt with my small left handed drill, drove in the stud extractor and reamed out the hole. Repeated the exercise with bigger drill after heating it all up a couple of times & still no joy. Ordered a new porkchop plate.
All fitted now with anti seize on every bolt and a dollop of grease between the O rings (I know grease is not standard fitment on a Guzzi, but what the heck!) - also took the opportunity to fit greased & sealed ball ends to the shift rod. I am expecting even slicker shifts after all that . . .

If you have a broken bolt stuck in aluminum, and a hole through the broken bit, warm the area gently, just so it's uncomfortable to hold your hand on it. Then blow compressed air through the hole for a bit, chilling the steel while the surrounding aluminum is warm. Back out the offending piece.
