V65TT vs. V65NTX

Hay there
With some extra $, simple skills, a bit of work one can made NTX an exelent bike. Also saw TT with NTX gas tank, no problem with that. I did on my a lot for instance remove that can under plastic, wich is really hot, there is only pipe now there. It will be soon 820 cc too.

Man, this manichino is something entirely awesome
Shame that Guzzi doesn't offer such bikes as the TT no more... I think a shaft driven 750cc V-twin with 18/21 wheels, big tank, decent suspension and brakes would bite a fairly nice chunk out of the big trailie pie

PS: Will post some pics of the bike soon, perhaps tomorrow. It need to service the bike (oil, filters, carb cleaning etc. ) and give it a bit of tlc all-in-all :)

I agree

The new stelvio is what around a 1000 KG???? ride that offroad....

We are currently building a bike to beat up based on the TT platform. It is a mix between the manichino end the Baja. V65 engine, reinforced frame, airfilter box similar to the baja, final drive of the big block, inverted WP and customs back shocks...and so on. I am doing it using bits and pieces of 80s bikes i buy on ebay so that it could look historically correct...

I will post something when it is done...probably 3- 4 months

Hello and welcome, it seems that's still a couple of TT's around the world
Guzzi NTX tank should fit with few mods, but I don't know for other since I doubt that's there any aftermarket bits

NTX tank

The easiest swap is the NTX tank. You need to reposition the tanks mounts of the tt a little bit higher on the guesset. Other can fit but you may have interference with the petcocks....

Tanx for TTs

I've been trying to solve the fuel range problem on my TT for quite a few years. The 14 litre tank is way too small and there's no way you're going out into the boonies with the gas range it provides. I had been looking for an NTX tank for a few years but have been using an extra 10L plastic tank from the Tour Tank folks - strapped to a homemade aluminum rack plate and plumbed into the fuel lines. This at least gets me over into the over-200 mile range. The photo attached shows how it looks - taken at Elk River, Idaho on a run this summer to check out back roads and bits of the Continental Divide trail.


Of course, the NTX tank would be much better. You just can't beat a 32 litre capacity. Via eBay, I had purchased an NTX tank earlier this year, but it never arrived - and probably never got sent from Italy. Sooner or later you get burned via eBay - grrrrrrr. the pictures below show the tank that was to be sent. This is from an ex-police NTX750 (the 113 on the tank = our 911) and I realized after I bought it t hat this was going to be a problem on the TT. After looking thru the parts fiche for the NTX750 as well as some photos from the web, it appears that the petcock on the NTX750 version of the tank mounts behind the side covers - with a big knob that protrudes through the side cover. This would have been a challenge on the TT as they would fowled the TT sidecovers. As well, there's a fuel level sender on the other side to be dealt with.








The NTX650 tank looks to be the one to get. I understood that the NTX650 tank was a direct drop-in, but Frankenbeemer's experience with his way-cool TTc project sounds like this may not be so. You should be able to see the NTX tank on his TTc much earlier in this thread.

Best of luck

tanks

Hi primoguzzisti,

You are right...about ebay. I just got burned by an Austrian selling me disk brakes (rotors and calipers) for my car which never made it here -(ouch ).

The Guzzi Baja (TTC) has an all Alluminum handformed tank. It is similar to the NTX, in fact the Guzzi enginners copied that tank for the follow up ntx which is made out of plastic. I am not sure if they are exactly the same as i never installed a baja tank on a v65tt.

What I know, because i did it, is to install a 650 NTX tank on a v65tt and it fits like a glove. Again, you need to reposition the 2 front mounts for the tank with spacers on the head guessets and relocate the front 2 blinkers that interfere with the tank when you steer. That is it.

I believe you are probably right with NTX 750 tank. It shouldn't fit.

btw, i have a spare yellow ntx tank at home if you are interested as well as other v65tt parts that i removed from a donor bike. Everything is here in maryland.

NTX tank

Hay there
NTX 750-enduro or XPA 750 - (police version with smaller wheels) have same gas tank as NTX 650 or 350. So no problem to put such from one of those on TT, it will fit perfect.
