Question about 2002 Moto Guzzi V11 Sport Rosso Mandello
Does anyone on this site have installed a Moto Guzzi factory Ti Exhaust system that also came with the ECU and new hangers?? Is this a full system from the heads or is it just the cans??? How well does it work?? Is there any other suggestions for race / performance exhuast system?? I see many members use the Stucci or Mistral X-over and what ever cans the like. If I go this road is there any header pipes that can or should be used to work with the X-overs?? Any other Exhaust system (race or otherwise) suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have a 2004 V11 without the O2 sensor.I don't have any experience with the MG Ti set up but I do have alot of mod's in line with what you're considering. There are some with the set up you are considering and they will be here soon, no doubt. This is a great and helpful group/site.The biggest issue with the actual exhaust headers isn't so much which cross over will work, but that the '04's have that first cross over, in front of the alternator cover. The earlier bikes did not have this, and was added after'02(?) to address a percieved dip in the power curve at about 4000 rpm. This front cross over tends to loosen and then it is free to rattle around, and creates a exhaust leak. I am about to try solving this on mine as soon as I get the new gaskets. You could also look at Guzzitech.com to find headers made with no front cross over at all. There are several popular aftermarket cross overs for the one under the motor, and several threads concerning them. Some are said to improve either your mid range or top end power. Some prefer the Mistral, I think, because it allows the addition of an aftermarket center stand. There are many opinions, but there is also a central theme about them all. You will almost assuredly need some type of fuel control system, or a ECU remapping. The PowerCommander III seems to be the weapon of choice. I bought my bike already mod'ed, including the PC III, so I have never experienced the power dip many discuss here. Done properly, you will not be disappointed. After all, who amongst us has ever said,It's got more power, I don't like it now Spend enough time here in search mode and you will find many questions answered, and in some cases more questions now than when you first started... laugh.gif Good luck in your quest for POWER,,,
