Re: Introduction- getting an 860 GT prepped

Here's a thread over at a Guzzi site of a guy's journey restoring one:

Re: Non high compression pistons for 750GT

Probably want to do a differential compression test first to determine valve as well as rings seal. Might save you a mort of work & $.

Re: 1974 750 GT with PHF32 jetting recommendation

Here's what I finally ended up using in my '73 GT using PHF32's & Wiseco 'Sport' C.R. pistons after much fiddling and fussing on the dyno and then seat of the pants for final tweaks.

Re: Clutch Grabs Violently on Fresh Engine

Not saying that my clutch problem cure would also cure yours, but. After I got my GT engine back from a complete re-bop by Guy, the clutch stuck & grabbed horribly. I tried all manner of things to rectify with no effect. Finally, in desperation I took one of the steel plates and even though it looke...

Re: Plated cylinders

Most aircraft cylinders are Nickel Silicon Carbide plated on steel bores (not sleeves, but cylinders made from one piece). I had it done at Millenium too and gotten great results, mostly in longevity and reduced fuel consumption. I see that they will do aluminum sleeves for bikes too. I don't know i...

Re: 1974 750 GT carb question

I had a sticking slides problem that turned out to have an off the wall cause. I concocted a Guzzi boy-racer unit with an aftermarket fiberglass tank and one day the throttle stuck (exciting!). I had the (new dellorto) carbs apart probably half a dozen times looking for problems, but it kept happeni...

Re: ‘74 750 GT Restoration in Seattle

Can't say as that I did know it, though the only Bevel guys I actually know are up here in BC, mostly Square Case SS's of one sort or another. Though there are 203 other GT's I know of in the area, mine seems to be the only one that gets ridden much. Actually just got back from a little scoot to my ...

Re: ‘74 750 GT Restoration in Seattle

Amen to renewing or even improving the original electrics. An ST2 Stator / rotor and MOSFET regulator / rectifier is a good thing and ditching the points for a Dyna 'S' is as well. I don't know anything about the later handlebar switches, but if they're original 40+ YO, safe to say they would certai...

Re: Wanted to purchase RT450

https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/rds/mcy/d/1971-ducati-t-450-desmo/6569136184.html $6,900 CDN = ~ $5,474 US Seems kinda strong, but maybe you could beat him down a bit. Being a "competition" bike it might not have a title which would complicate import into the US. https://images.craigslist.org/00o0o_...
