Moto Guzzi California Titanium Vibrations at speed.

I ride a Moto Guzzi California Titanium that vibrates at just about any speed. I doesnt affect the handling, but both rear view mirrors are useless. Other wise the bike behaves fine, and is very quick. I thought that it might be the V-twin engine (1100cc). My wife rides a Guzzi Nevada, same type engine, but no vibration. Any ideas?

It could be any number of things, from wheel bearings to clutch to out-of-balance engine.
All Guzzi's shake to some extent, at least until you reach 1500rpm or so... but I would hesitate to give you a specific reason.
Has the bike been checked by a Guzzi shop? It may be that the two cylinders are 'out' and the FI needs a reset.

I had the same problem I thought with my 2003 aluminum so I stopped at a dealer and after returning from a test ride he told me there was nothing wrong with the bike(grin on his face). I've learned to let the engine rev up a little more before shifting and the vibes have been basically eliminated. I now like my bike. At first I thought I was being hexed for buying something other than a Triumph for the first time since 1964.

How long do the moto guzzi 1400 Cali touring gearbox selector springs last for the bike has done just over 11,500miles and one of them has broke the bike is a July 2014 is this a common problem ?

Hi, Derek it is not common for the part on your bike to fail but delicate parts are more likely to fail before heavy duty parts. If your bike is still under warranty you should contact your local Dealership for a free repair. If your bike is 1 day out of warranty the manufacturer is legally not required, by law, to repair your bike for free, however, most Dealers, depending on the age of the bike, will under these type of scenarios usually make some type of compensation for uncommon failures whether or not the owner requests relief. Bottom line parts fail that's why they make spares.

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.

1983 Moto Guzzi 850 T5 headlight not working

Hi, Bob if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, dim or surges from bright to dim to bright the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chafed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/low beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator/lighting coil
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

I need an owners manual, can someone help ?

I checked for free on-line manuals but had no success. Get a service manual instead of an owners manual. Owners manuals are worthless when you are having problems.

Google "service manuals Moto Guzzi" or try your local library. Often guys will donate manuals to the library.
