I am the second and fourth owner.

Why the 8V exhaust on the 4V bike?

The guts of the '07 stocker were loose in the bore
Someone tossed the "ugly" old 8V stock exhaust so it was sitting on my shelf.

I am trying to fund a Corbin seat so if you have Facebook, do a search for Guzzi GRiSO to see the odds and ends I have for sale. I'll post them here as well.

Apart from bolting on the 8V style Muffler I removed the Onur 20 MM risers and the bar-end mirrors.
For the bar-ends I pulled a set from a Cali 3 out of the box-of-munt and ground them to size throwing sparks just like the guys on Youtube!

It probably definitely needs tires, a new battery and fresh plugs but at 14K miles it still has a lot to give.

It has a Wilburs aftermarket shock. Does anyone know if these are height adjustable? I had a Stelvio shock on my last GRiSO and I liked the way it balanced the bike by weighting the front end.

Ugly OEM exhaust? That's a personal taste thing. Careful, you risk offending the purists.

Personally, I like the exhaust as it came from the factory. You will NEVER see a muffler like it on any other bike. Also, you might consider that Grisos are getting old. They will soon be collectable classics and everyone knows that a stock standard classic bike is worth more than one with  aftermarket exhaust mufflers.
I want one for my bike, but the previous owner butchered the mid pipe and the footrest hanger/exhaust bracket, so going back to the OEM exhaust isn't such a simple matter for me.

Nice pipes, is that a GIVI screen?

The Corbin seat is a peach and my Stelvio shock arrived from Germany. Plan to swap shocks tomorrow or the next day.
