[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]Advice, please, from the Grisisti. I’ve raced bicycles on the road long enough to know that ergonomics matter. But on GRiSO, my Tyrannosaur-arms would not comfortably reach the bar-ends where I want the leverage. So I’ve rolled the bar and reseated the switchgear, and first impressions are pretty good. Better, anyway. But what about the fork stems above the top triple crown? This is how the bike came to me; is this 2, or 3, stacks? The shop manual states the factory setting is 4 with an italicized “do not touch”… (you’re not a Moto Guzzi expert). What to do? It looks like I only need to loosen and put 50NM back into x8 M10s. What could possibly go wrong?

A lot of people here run the forks a lot higher than two rings. Mine on the Yellow Peril are at six.

They're M8's and do not torque them to 50Nm.
From top to bottom, they're 18, 22, 20, 22 Nm.
The number of rings, in my not so humble opinion, is dependent on tyre (and pressure) and rear shock choice.
