Twiggers in Loughborough - Only do servicing no sales.

Mine is 12 months old and booked in at Twiggers for this Saturday.
Quoted £320 - £350 for engine oil / filter, gear oil, final drive oil, valve check and throttle body balance.
It sounds expensive but my hands are tied as the bike is under warranty.
I will report back after the service!

3 hours labour, oils, oil filter and sealing washers came in at just under £300 including VAT.
The first service at Moto Forza used Agip oils. Twiggers use Silkolene engine oil and Motorex gear oil. I don't know what grade they put in the gearbox but it's not a slick when dropping into first.

If you are in Ohio, Kentucky or Indiana there is only ONE PLACE you should consider. If you are anywhere in the Midwest, at least check out their website. You won't find a better deal on a new (or used) Guzzi.

They are a MG dealer. Factory trained mechanics for MG, Ducati, BMW and others.
GREAT people to deal with for bikes, parts and service.

Getting some positive feedback about the World Powersports in Wayne. They recently took the MG business over from Motorcycle Mall.

I just purchased a V7 III there so I'll get first hand experience in 600 miles when I have them perform the first service.

In the North of UK I'd recommend Jason who trades as 1921 Moto. Servicing only, he works from his home in Guiseley, Leeds or will visit.

I definitely had a good experience buying my bike from AF1 Racing in Austin.  The price was good, the shipper they use got the bike to me in good time and with no damage and the bike showed up as advertised.  I'd recommend them to anyone buying a bike remotely.

I found out that Gord at Valley Motor in Chilliwack, BC has retired, and in fact that the store is no longer a MG dealer.  When I called the new owners they referred me to Moto Vida in Kelowna, BC.  

I have dealt with Moto Vida a few times for spare parts, and they have been friendly, fast, and reasonably priced. But I have never brought my GRiSO for repair or service.  Now I am considering taking the mighty GRiSO to Moto Vida to see if they can get rid of the "very high idle"-issue.

Does any of you have any experience with their mechanic?

FIY Moto International in Seattle closed its doors. Dave Richardson retired, and a few months later they announced the closure. The new official Guzzi-Aprilia dealer is a place called Optimum Performance Motorsports in Kirkland, but I can’t speak one way or another about them. I would recommend Seattle Used Bikes for service, as one of the techs from Moto I went there before the door closing.

I'd like to put a good word in for Tom at Don Newell Motorcycles in Woolloongabba (Brisbane) QLD.
He's an honest, up-front, no BS operator. Been around for years and provides options, solutions and alternatives.

we are pretty lucky in this part of the woods.....
we have direct access to 3 very knowledgable (accredited/authorised) fonts.
two on the east coast and one on the west.
these gentlemen are available for information and parts supply, and even (if you are lucky) support...

but on the global front, we are even luckier through being part of this forum, the collective brains and support is amazing.
all the manuals and parts diagrams and information... it's all here.
and someone has already done that particular bit of wrenching, and posted photos of their journey and the tips and tricks found along the way.

so the best service provider nearest you is, er, you.
these bikes are beautifully agricultural in their design and so there really isn't that much that you can't achieve yourself.

when I say yourself, I mean yourself, this forum, and you-toob Rolling Eyes  

-ok, you do need a couple of spanners and a hammer, oh, a laptop and some other bits and pieces, but...



and it's even better when another forum member can retrieve beers from the fridge whilst you tackle that task. Razz Razz

Sean Fader closed his shop RTL a while back and now is the head wrench at OC Motorcycle in Costa Mesa. It’s a relatively new Guzzi dealer and one of only two I trust with my bikes in So Cal. The other being Thousand Oaks.

I have heard him "brag" about how he knows nothing about fuel injection - sad but true, and at a Guzzi Rally to boot. I "adjusted" Moet's bike (1200 Sport 2V Ditch Pump, but a slow red one) at Mingoola one year - TPS was set to 2.3 or something close, wouldn't idle, and ran like shit. He had the Stage 1 ECU fitted and the Lafranconi's. Sound is awesome, though. Migrated a WIP map I had at that time, reset the TPS, killed off the auto learning rubbish. Lo and Behold, it idled. Moet is a happy camper still, and it still idles!

Maybe I should update him a little in May - he might even be there early, this year, to spend some quality time with us "special" people...

I'm probably going to do most the basics my self. However at some point I want to ride out to some of the not too far away MG service shops and check them out. Mostly so if I run into something that is too much for me I already know were to head off too. Any suggestions on what to look out for and maybe questions to ask to get an idea who is good and who should be avoided? I've already seen a suggestion on another thread for a shop a little over 2 hrs from me, but I'm hoping the one that's only an hour away is good as well.
