When I noticed that where the silencer goes into the balance box the weld had gone and it was blowing. I only have a short trip this weekend so it can wait untill Monday but I am unsure what to fit. If I fit an H pipe, will it need the EFI resetting ? How much increase in noise will it generate ? If it means playing with the EFI or a lot more noise I will refit a new standard box. ,I swapped my old balance box for a Mistral H pipe- gives a noticeable boost to the mid-range, and if you keep the standard silencers and airbox won't create too much extra noise. Also looks much sleeker and makes gearbox oil changes easier. I have a spare standard balance box in the garage if you want a one,,,

Fork brace


which is attached onto the forks by 4 bolts. I presumed this was designed to reduce fork flex. Its heavy and its ugly and I am thinking of dumping it when I get my new alloy front mudguard built. I think several other Tonti models have this kind of brace bolted to their mudguard and forks. Has anyone else dumped it and if so did you notice any difference? CheersI think the brace also holds the mudguard so you will need another method to hold the guard. Older Cali's had stays out to the guards to support them. With a different guard you may be able to lighten the brace by drilling but I would do a road test with and without the brace before dumping it completely.,,

Drive box


this is a job I have done manymany a time on all sizes of Guzzis but this one is a real pig I have stripped the back end of the bike and now the s/arm with drive box is in my workshop but will they come apart? no way! I have tried Plus Gas, and also lots of heat but so far it aint moved a inch, the drive box is now just the casing as I stripped the insides out, any ideas??,I think that the box is siezed to the swinging-arm, via the studs, so maybe it would be worth trying that freeze-and-release spray that is available from Halfords, and other Motor Shops. I suspect that electrolytic corrosion has probably occurred between the studs on the drive-box, and the holes on the swing-arm flange, that they fit into. If all else fails, heat the studs up with a powerful blow-lamp, then lob a bucket of cold water on them. Maybe that will shock them off. ,,,
