Hello forum, I,m Pete and I hail from Sandford in Southern Tasmania. My interest in Guzzi,s started young when my dad bought a Lodola with him from Switzerland in 1957. He didnt have enough money to bring us all so he only took his bike, I,m sure he missed us. I started with a Mille GT, Quota, 850 GT, Mark 5 LM and now my 850 GRiSO. I always wanted a 850 cause I love the short stroke motor and with nothing blacked out it,s just all motor. Love it. It,s also neat having a "73 850 and the new version alongside. There is also a BMW f800r and an xs1100 with sidecar hiding in the shed. Look forward to meeting up with anyone in southern Tas for a ride.

If you want to wake that thing up a bit take the bungs out of the second plug holes, fit twin plug coils and ask Mark for a map. It'd be like the Bellagio should of been and I really like Bellagios.

It does look better, doesn't it. Just a motor & not much else. Well, I like it, anyway.

Hi Pete Roper, re twin plugs, do I use 1100 bits or aftermarket ? I,m assuming Mark is the mysterious beetle and if so where can I find more info about remapping. Thanks in advance, Cheers Pete

Where are you in Tassie? I’ll be there next week. I can fling the laptop and cables in and pop a map in for you if you want? I can the. Explain what’s involved in twin plugging.

Any mods to your 850?

I believe the coils are the same for Calis, Sports, Brevas, Norges, and indeed many european cars (Fiat, Alfas et al) though they often use wasted spark.

fitted those plugs? eager to listen the difference they made since an 850 might be on my radar in the following months, if a Mostro 800 fails to enchant me with its desmo tune or the dream falls apart once more

Why is everyone in Aussie Land suddenly called Pete? What happened to Bruce? I liked Bruce.

"Your name not Pete?"
"No, it's Bruce."
"That's going to cause a little confusion. Mind if we call you Pete to keep it clear?"
