Just saw this on another MG forum and was wondering what you all thought about it. Other than looks, is there any other benefit in relocating the oil cooler higher? [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
It was their asymmetry that first attracted me to Guzzis. The GRiSO just takes it up a notch. I think the 'Toast Rack' on the side is one of the most important style pointers and is one of the things that makes the 850's look somewhat lacking. YOMV.
I remember a few years ago on another board a new owner asking why one cylinder was further forward than the other and how could he fix it. Several people, myself included I'm ashamed to say, had quite a bit of fun with that...........
Totally agree Pete. The toaster does give it a finished look and puts the styling in a class of it's own. Seems like a lot of money to put into a GRiSO to make it look like a Sport. But hey to each to his own.

Can’t really see the point. The standard “toaster” arrangement appears perfectly well protected to me. The cooler fins are parallel to the fore-aft of the bike, hidden within the confines of the exterior cover, so the chances of them getting smashed by a rock are pretty low I’d imagine. IMO, the pic posted looks more exposed to damage than the standard setup.

I’m guessing this move would also exacerbate the over cooling problem. I like the hibachi/toaster.
