Removal of the Guzzi V65 Lario Gear box

I suspect that a bearing has collapsed in the gearbox and I will need to remove it for repairs. It looks a bit daunting. Can someone tell me the proper removal procedure please?

Moto Guzzi 2001 California Neutral light not working Please refer to additional detail

Hi, Frank I would have to agree on your diagnosis and theory and here's what I would do:
1. Remove the neutral switch and using smoke and mirrors especially mirrors, if necessary, shine a flashlight in the hole to view the detent/lug situation.
2. If that looks ok then spray the sh*t out of the neutral switch with carb cleaner, while depressing the spring loaded plunger 3-4 times then blow dry with compressed air.
3. If that doesn't work buy a new switch.

Gear selection difficult nissan primastar

It's a bit of an common problem with this gear box the forward backwards selector arm ( the T shaped one on the left when viewed from the top) has an oil seal that is prone to failure allowing water to penetrate in to the gearbox. If left unchecked the selector bearing will eventually collapse making it impossible to get any gear. A further problem that can happen is that the main bearing in the box will also suffer from the presence of the water. Best way to check is to drain the oil from the box thru the plug on the bottom if the diff if it come out even slightly milky then the selector oil seal has failed only solution is to drop the box out and have the selector turret beaeing changed buy a recon specialist and have them check the main bearings for water damage too

Moto guzzi 650 gt -gearbox whine in 5th gear at 50-60 mph any previous?regards

Guzzi is one great bike shy the gear box whine, I've worked on a handful of Guzzi and almost all of them have it. It does seem to get louder as the bike gets older. Keep a GOOD oil in it and shouldnt have any problems. Amsoil makes some of the best motorcycle oil i have found and that would be what i would run in it. During your next oil change check out the gears while you have the pan off to change your oil filter. Everything is easy to see and look at. If there is anything else i can help with or if you have any more questions please feel free to contact me

Engine starts but trans wont go

Hi, if the gearbox is a manual shift then the chances are that the clutch has gone or even the thrust bearing operating the clutch could have collapsed causing the problem your having.

If your gear box is an auto box then this would more than certanly mean that the gear box needs replacing as they are to expensive to repair your cheapest option would be to exchange yours for a reconditioned box.

Let me know what type of box you have then i can assist you further as it could be that the master or slave cylinder has gone on the clutch pedal if your gear box is manual type so let me know then i can assist you further ok

Noisy 5th gear

but no there was definitely a loud whirring noise in 5th gear sort of like a very noisy bearing. The bike still ran in 5th but it was definately becomming increasingly noisy. When I changed down to 4th the noise went away even if I slowed to the rev range I had been cruising in 5th. Same story with the other gears, but the noise returned with a vengence in 5th. Needless to say I rode the rest of the way home in avoiding 5th. Any ideas? I suppose I'm looking at a gearbox strip? Could the noise be anything else? ,Had a similar issue with my 1000S, only 5th gear was noisy - a sound like a dry bearing -other gears were silent. Bike had done 70,000kms and serviced correctly. Had Barry from IME check it out. Turned out to be both 5th gears needed replacing - looked like the case hardening on the gear faces was eroding and pitting. New gears went in and the box properly shimmed and happy to say 6000 kms later all still silent in the gearbox department. Plus the added benefit of slicker gear changes.,,,
