V11 Sport engine rebuilding

My V11 Scura engine seized due to the oil feeder coming loose in the oil sump. I would appreciate advice and tech info on how to rebuild this engine. I can do part of the work myself having sound mechanical engineering knowledge. I already have Pete Roper's excelent engine strip series posted on the Wildguzzi forum.

My V11 scura also seized but I'm not sure of the cause as I had help stripping the engine I found that I could get a new factory surplus engine for less than the cost of reconditioning the existing engine. Corsa Itialiana had a deal on a new engine It may be worth your while enquiring from them before you get into serious expense.

Oil in the sump of Motor cycle became dry. forgotten to fill. now filled full but has black smoke coming out of exhaust pipe sometimes alongwith fire (as if some friction happens inside). Please advic

The shop mechanic is probably correct. Any time you run an engine dry of oil it will indeed overheat and most probably cause so much friction that your engine will have severe problems usually the cylinders or heads becoming warped or even cracked. To be honest with you I think that you may be looking at buying a new engine, I am sorry to say. Personally I would not try to have anyone repair your engine because you will probably still have problems in the future.

Hi, I'm owner of 2002 Moto Guzzi V11 Sport Naked My mechanic dismantle the bike for sandblasting the engine due to famous problems with this model paint. He don't note the adjustment of rear wheel arm...

Hi there.
Often the adjustment of the rear swing-arm, particularly for bikes like yours, requires a special tool, or knowledge of the correct adjustment angle.
A Moto Guzzi dealer would be the best person to speak to regarding this. They may even be able to tell you over the phone what the angle and distance is, and possibly how to adjust it.
Otherwise, taking the bike to them might be the best option.

Sump oil drainage location 250 scarabeo aprilla

I am not too familiar with your Machine?
However is there a drain screw on the clutch case/cover.
Is this engine 2 or 4 stroke?
If it is 2 stroke then NO oil drain plug only gearbox drain if geared. If twist and go then No maintenance required.
Have you tried Aprillia website for further info?
I hope this helps,

Engine cleaning

oil rad and exhaust.Forgot to clean her and got busy for a few weeksnow the stuff's baked on.I usually use a dilluted mixture of Simple Green and water.Wouldn't take some of the heavier crud off like it normally would. What else would loosen some of the baked on stuff that won't damage the paint or stain the Ti's?Anybody use anything more abrasive than a sponge to wipe off stuff and get in the nooks and crannies that won't scratch? Thanks,I've been using the s100 cleaner. Never tried the brightener. I get mine from a sorta local (25 miles) shop,,,
