Re: 860 GT Borrani Rim/Tire Upgrade question

Thanks Steve, I've been chatting with Kennie at Buchanan and I think we have it sorted-out. I'm going to have a go at tuning the rear rim myself, it's going to be slightly shorter on one side due to the difference in the Guzzi hub. As for tires, I realize you recommend going on the narrow side of st...

860 GT Borrani Rim/Tire Upgrade question

I've acquired a set of Borrani WM-3 alloy rims off a Guzzi Convert with the intention of replacing the stock rims. I know the front rim will work fine as the hubs are exactly the same, but my concern is the rear rim - mostly as to whether they will have the right angle at the dimple. I currently hav...

Re: Reconditioning brake rotors

Thanks! I may send them off (I'm in upper Midwest). I had the rotors hydro-blasted and they look great. The advice I was given from a local Vintage Duc shop is to not bother turning them, I may have them do the drilling, and then paint myself. Any advice on paint? I usually use an enamel for somethi...

Determining Velocity Stack Height

How do you determine the proper height of velocity stacks? I have 32mm Delorto carbs, 860GT, 10:1 compression.

Re: 860 GT mystery repair

Thanks for the responses guys. It was recommended that I dig it out so that I could determine whether or not it was repairable - but I can't see anything wrong. Even if it were repairable it would be tricky down in the groove. There was a bit of oil behind one part of the plug so I believe it does w...

860 GT mystery repair

I'm in the process of rebuilding my 860GT square case and I've come upon what I believe may be an attempted repair. It looks like someone filled-in the area on the lower right side of the motor with epoxy - I can only assume this is a oil leak repair. Since I have the motor apart I'd like to fix it ...

Fork upgrade recommendations - 860GT

I'm currently building a Imola replica from a '75 860GT, and I'd like to upgrade the forks a bit as I intend to ride the bike pretty hard. The stock Cerrani's look like they'll leave me disappointed when pushing the bike through it's paces. I'm open to any ideas, but I'm thinking I should be looking...
