2012 Stelvio in today. Sadly it had been a bit neglected. It came in for rollerisation but when Michael pulled the rocker cover....

So that was a bonus.

Problem was it had done 60,000km and the swingarm and linkages had never been touched.

Took Michael two hours to get the races out of the bloody frame.

The swingarm to linkage bolt is seized in too. That's going to be fun. Not.

Sadly the rear drain hose has been off the airbox since forever and the TB's are buggered. How buggered? Dunno yet but we think once it's remapped it'll run like shit, (More shit than it does already!) and we'll need to put new ones on it.

Look after your bikes guys. All this stuff is simply periodic maintenance related and observation. Overlooking it WILL cost you! It's the same set up on the GRiSO.

Swingarm bearings -1

Prognosis: Negative!

Yes on average, less than even.

The bloke loves the bike. He wants it right. Sometimes an education is painful. He's sensible enough to realise that.

Learning the hard way is a great way to avoid making the same mistakes twice.

Must be a breath of fresh air having a customer who gets it, instead of being a whiny git.

Brilliant

so many Guzzi owners are actually quite tight,

Ducati owner "The crankshaft end is ruined? How much?! Damnation but OK!"
Guzzi owner "A fuse has blown? How much? Do you have to replace it can't you repair it cheaper?"
