Hi,

The std Guzzi cable is way too short for a Triking, All Triking tacho cables are purpose made, The latest version has a re-enforcement around the weak area where they are prone to wear . http://shop.trikingsportscars.co.uk/pro ... ble-thing/

Re: Tacho cable

Mine is removed and in a cardboard box in the shed. I’ll take a look later. I believe my one would be the original Guzzi 850 LM 2 but I’ll check.

Re: Type 1 Cycle Wings.

Hi WEG,

Do you still have the moulds? My guards were heavily modified and it would be good to start from scratch.
I would be interested in this possible solution.

Re: Front discs.

Hi Axel, Excellent. I may take you up on that. Would you like to PM me with the price you would be looking for? Alan thinks he “may” have a spare one floating about and I’m going to phone him on Monday for a general chat as well as the rotor. I know one should really change them both however there w...

Re: Front discs.

Thanks Paul. These are Triking kit supplied ones - not sure of oem. Guzzi ones have a bevel on the outer lip which is a wear indicator - I think.

Re: Electronic timing.

Many thanks. The Guzzi club forum and Facebook page occasionally makes mention of those. I maybe need two. My V50 has the old Bosch ei system which is possibly coming to the end of its life. I’ll wire up the Rita initially to see if it still works first.
