Problem solved the moral of this story is make sure you are told the right key to use it is in fact the ignition key
California Vintage / seat lock
« Last post by bobiva on February 09, 2016, 09:57:35 AM »
I have a motoguzzi cali vintage 2008 with 9000 on the clock I am trying to unlock the seat for the first time and  I am having trouble turning the key and I am afraid I might break the key I am trying to turn it clockwise as in the manual Is there anybody who can give me any hints what to do
Looking through the Owners / Users Manual for the California 1400 the maximum weight allowable is 547 Kg -> 1,205 lbs.  If you own the Touring model it weighs 743 lbs. - 337 kg.  That would leave you with about 463 lbs -> 210 kg for riders and gear.  My 2008 California Vintage will not carry that much weight!

Happy Trails 
California Vintage / 2008 Vintage - inner spark plugs
« Last post by rdtricks on February 08, 2016, 02:04:17 PM »
Getting started on a 12,000 mile service, I found the inner spark plugs unreachable with any of the deep sockets in my kit; Seems the walls of the two sockets I have are too thick.  Can someone suggest a brand or type of deep socket to use for pulling these inner spark plugs?  It is difficult for me to believe the factory could install these inner spark plugs without allowing for a regular plug wrench being able to remove them. :-\

California 1400 / Re: highway pegs

If you go to moto guzzi owners club, go to links, go to discussion groups, go to california 1400, go to search, highway pegs and author bud you will find what your looking for.
Hi everyone.

I'm looking for a set of Marzocchi Strada 38mm forks  - the type that some owners fitted to their Le Mans models in the late 70s/early 80s as an after sales upgrade. For absolute clarity, I've attached some images of exactly the forks I'm after - do please have a look. I'd consider a complete front end replete with yolks, a pair of legs (sliders and tubes) or just a pair of the appropriate sliders.

If you can help, do please feel free to email me on

I look forward to hearing from you

Norge 1200 / Re: New 2012 Norge GT8V

Hi NYRider,
It seems the Norge is not real popular, which is one appeal to me.
Do you still own yours?
I just purchased a new 2014 last weekend and it is fantastic.
If the dealer network was a little stronger and parts a little more available, more MGs would be on the road.
I'm not looking for Yamaha/Kawasaki/Suzuki availability, but more exposure would help with the brand.

Hi everyone,
I just purchased a new 2014 Norge and wanted to introduce myself.
My riding history is not as wide and varied as some, but does span 40+ years.
Honda 450 Scrambler
Honda CB750K
Honda CB750F
BMW R1100R
Ducati ST3
I was able to get a good 300 mile day in on the new Norge and it was a very sweet ride.
It fits right, has soul and was one of the best rides ever.
I don't understand why everyone is so concerned about the lack of technology on the Norge.
All you have to do is ride one.
The more you ride, the better it gets.
There are a few things I'm going to change and add, but I was in heaven and I still have to run it in.
The saddle is very comfortable and the engine has great range and revs easily.
I didn't get close to redline and the bike just fly's.
I look forward to helping where I can with my limited Guzzi knowledge, but am so happy to be a part of the family.
V7 / Re: Roll call....where are you and what V7 do you have?
« Last post by organfixsing on December 29, 2015, 04:57:26 PM »
Have a STONE V7II in red.
Previously had a BREVA 1100.
The BREVA was a beautiful bike on the highway but a pig for me around traffic.
My legs were too short and the bike was too heavy to pick up.
