the pleasure of owning a delicate exotica when there are no Guzzi shops within 100 miles your bike can't be moved and your friendly and competent Kawasaki shop is hardly Guzzi knowledgeable (and so am I it seems) ... smile.gif
I have broken some transmission bearings and am now confronted (again) with equivalence problems...
As you may know the Ghezzi STW is made off parts from V11 and parts from the 1100 Sport. From the picture below would you say it's a 1100 Sport transm' or a V11 trans' ? Yeah, I know, I know, but Bruno Saturno is on holidays and the entire Italian economics is at sleep in august.
I have looked here and there are several threads wich mention parts number but as long as I'm not sure which bike donated the parts, I'm stuck smile.gif I have taken a V11 parts list and here's what i need
bearing 26 (92 20 80 14 numbers are from a v11 2002 list parts)
needle bearing 25 (92 23 40 55)
spacer 04 35 51 02 (i actually need to measure it to be sure if it's 0,8, 0,9, 1 or 1,1mm)
Are there equivalence between 1100 parts and V11 parts ? (the parts numbers aren't the same on the parts lists).
Would you know any parts that would fit from a different origin (SKF ?).
Thanx for any help..., well, I just looked in the sport 1100i workshopmanual, there they say replace each 15000km with sporty use or each 20.000 km with normal use. I know they live longer than that. But anyway it is good to take them of each 10.000km, have them in your hand and feel if they move without play. And while you have them there, it's the perfect moment to grease them.
And I'm no saint either, I once had one with melted bearing cages. But that was the sort that didn't have grease nipples.,,,
