Second time Guzzi first time GRiSO owner,

I had a 1200 Sport a few years back, Currently I have a Z900RS in the stable with my GRiSO 8v SE.

Currently the GRiSO is on the rack for a full fluids change, New slip on and to undo the flaking wraps that the previous owner put on the exhaust.

Joined here for Technical support and to talk with other GRiSO owners, also to hopefully figure out if anyone knows the make of the aftermarket turn signal on the Tank wing panel piece
See y'all around!

Congrats!
Indicators *might* be Denali.
Tank panel?

Also, I think you'll want an exhaust with more backpressure.

Just kidding...that was just to set Beetle off!   [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Seems an odd place to have indicators, especially when they are in lieu of the front ones.

How would oncoming traffic be able to see these indicators?

Welcome from NC!
not sure about the indicators. I have toyed with thoughts of low profile indicators in that location.
what do they look like from the front and side when they are on?

Welcome & hi...

Agree with Kiwi Dave; looks like PO ditched the OEM ones to fit the screen (cos they are hard to work around) & then just chucked some mini blinkers on the nearest flat surface.....lalso ooks like rear conventional ones gone as well - are there plug in ones at the rear as well ??

The rear signals were swapped with 'MotoGadget M-Blaze Pin Turn Signal'

Battery is out of the bike at the moment but this is a front profile shot,

The turn signals work well during the day and even better at night, both are extremely bright.

This whole bike has been confusing, I can see what the previous owner was going for with the wrapped pipes and the low profile signals.

Welcome to the Ghetto! I'll refrain from commenting on the wrap and the blinkers...no I won't, I don't like 'em. But hey, it's not my bike, so enjoy it. How bad can it be? It's a GRiSO!

Very Happy
I don't either that's why the pipes are off, They actually aren't as bad as I'd thought they'd be just need to research for ways to clean them up.

I also even figured out how to get the turn signals off!

the pipes are polished stainless - various metal cleaners will work. there are lots of threads and you tube videos for this. as I am sure you know, just make sure there is no oily residue left on them after the cleaning process

Pipe cleaning with 2400 grade wet and dry paper
lubricated by light oil (or paraffin or WD40)
comes up nicely

the blaze thingis work great, what about the exhaust pipes below the wraps ? do they start to rust ? i like the looks but on my xt 500 they completely destroyed the iron exhaust manifold.
