The voltage read with a voltage meter on a healthy battery should read about 13-14 volts.15 and over is overcharging, 12 and under the battery is undercharged. you read no drop while bike was running, this is good, alternator is good.

New battery fitted but no ignition lights no power to starter, all lights indicators fuel pump works all fuses look fine can you help 2003 ev 1100 cali moto guzzi tom haggan

Hello, i haven't worked on but a few Guzzi's, but it sounds like you may have a ground issue. I would check for voltage at the ignition switch, relays & fuses. If no voltage there, check the main battery to frame ground. Then start with a continuity test from the battery to circuit box & continue until you find where the break is.... Some of these bikes, like the sport model, have 2 batteries, so if yours does, make sure that both are good....I hope this helps some.

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.

My Bike Wont Charge The Battery And Need To Know How To Test The Alternator Output?

put a test meter (reading VOLTS DC in the 20V range) across the battery terminals. It should read 12V. Now start the engine. The reading across the battery should be 13-14V or so. If it is any less, then the alternator isn't charging. If it goes up a lot when you rev it then the voltage regulator is faulty. Hope this helps.

Actuaaly lemans 11 but problemis: bike starts first turn runs sweet and will tick over fine. Will tick over 5 or 6 times on either cylinder. Ride the bike for a few kilometers and it starts to feel a bit...

Has the bike been standing along time? if so its probably the pilot fuel tunnel in the carb blocked. replace the pilot jets and main jets and soak the the carbs in a good carb cleaner.

Try a Dyna ignition out of the States. Well made, reliable, easy to fit and should be supported should any problems arise (unlikely). A good habit is to keep a set of points ,set up on the backing plate, under the seat of any Moto Guzzi.

I need a operators manual for a 1977 Moto Guzzi Convert.

Hi! First of all you need the key to insert in the ignition. Turn it on and press the push start. If the push start doesnt work then its time to use the kick start. Hope this helps and have a good one!

These are infamous for side stand switches that allow the bike to shut off and more importantly not start when side stand is down. Even worse is that it can activate even with side stand up. So either pull it off and short it out or clean up the connections.

My bike starts great but when i turn my lights on deep or main my engine cut out !!! can any one help me

start the bike and hook up a volt meter, verify there is approx 14 volts going to battery. then turn on headlight or signal light or even pull in the break lever and see if you still get 14 volts. if not, voltage regulator may be bad.

I am about to do it on the lemans 5. Just have to source the two lever setups for the PHMs.At the moment I dont have any choke setup on the bike.It doesnt need it realy.I just twist the throttle a few times when cranking in the cold weather and she always fires up no probs. I do want to fit the levers as the choke should be operational for winter time.
