Just a quick hello to everyone,
Recently got my first GRiSO (1st Guzzi) after 37 years of riding.
It's a 2008 1200 in black, goes very well, no paperwork to prove that its been
rollerised so I'm assuming it hasn't been done but no undue noises, will check
when I've a bit more time & look into getting it done. All good so far.
Yorkshire UK.

As is always the case just because it hasn't got the death rattles doesn't mean it isn't destroying itself. Don't ride it again until it's rollerised.

Welcome - Mileage/noise/performance is no indication of tappet destruction & I thought it was running 'better than ever' at the point I found tappet clearances could take the entire feeler gauge stack (at which point suspect some just nip them up & put bike on ebay or trade it in)...... I'd check asap what tappets you are running as it's a 5 min job (one small allen bolt, plug lead off - long screwdriver lever in exhaust header, 4 cam cover bolts off, inspect & check).

aj uk.... no  paperwork to prove that its been rollerised so I'm assuming it hasn't been done.

No need to assume.  Take a photograph of the top of a valve stem and post it up here.  Easily determined.

Thanks for the welcome,
just had the cam cover off and as expected it's still
on flat tappets. Will be getting it roller converted as I really like the bike,
amazing amount of torque, handles & brakes well etc.
Any ideas on which kit I will need, year 2008, A5 engine code, can't see any
marks/dots on the cylinder head, also any recommendations on who does the
conversion here in the UK would be appreciated.

It's a 'C' kit bike but you can do it cheaper by buying a 'B' kit, shims, valve guide oil seals,inlet and exhaust gaskets and the two head gaskets you need. The 'C' kit contains all three thicknesses of gasket two of which you won't need.

Thanks for the info Pete, it's always good to know there's an alternative/cheaper
way to do jobs like this..
