Hi,

I recently took the GRiSO out for a spin, 1st stop check air in tyres 1 mile down the road from home.

I noticed a lack of power and checked over.

The exhaust centre section has cracked and split horizontally (open 3 mm or so 80mm length of crack).

Also have some oil leaking, this coming from the top area of engine (i've not stripped it to look yet). Could the oil be because of the exhaust? It runs in my mind i've read if this portion of the exhaust is removed it can cause issues and maybe oil being sent to the air box?

Main problem seems that there is no stock of this item and Moto Guzzi are informing parts suppliers as follows .... We do not have it in stock and we have checked it at the manufacturer but the part is not available anymore according to the manufacturer.

For clarity here's a link to the part

Anyone know where this can be purchased?

Cheers,

Angus.

Hi Angus.....They usually turn up used/on-line every now & then & I'm guessing if you ask around Gutsibits & TLM etc they may look out for one for you (used); but alternative could be just get somebody to weld up the old one as a temp. fix; or get somebody to fabricate a replacement....failing all that I could lend you one (I have a spare from few years back bought as insurance for that known stress cracking problem !) until you get sorted out but will need postage at roughly £5 each way....

Don't think that would cause high up oil leak as even if it upsets blowby rate; it'll all just go to the airbox & into the inlet (unless it already has a leak in the system). Need to send some pictures to see if it's the blowby pipes or the separator/condom, or a leaking sensor.

Hi,

Thanks Paul, I'll whattsapp you about he exhaust. If I can't get a replacement I'll get the existing one repaired and look into getting one made. It just seems to be unbelievable that Guzzi are saying the parts are no longer being supplied.

Pete, It's been like that for almost 3 weeks I emailed and they advised no date .... Fowlers Say its discontinued and MSP emailed to confirm the same.

Cheers Angus.

AF1 Racing in Austin has one on their site at $300 USD. It's not in stock but possibly it could come from a different location than the reply you got? Worth a try if you have no better options.

I've got this on my GRiSO with the AGO Hydroformed exhaust. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

It works OK-ish on the 2V motor. A lot less so on the 1200.

I will disavow anyone who puts that ridiculous Agostini crossover on their GRiSO.

The straight through design of this collector is designed to improve high rpm power delivery and throttle response.

Bullshit of the highest order.



Sorry, Bulldog.

Want me to send your map back? bounce

LOL, It's not like I make the thing, no apologies necessary.

It does take some of the midrange out, but improves top end. I have the old pretzel mid pipe too, and as I often get bored and need something to do, will swap it out. Have had it on and off 3X.
