My hobby is creating exhaust systems for the Quota. Done at least 6 different complete systems over the years
If any one needs exhaust parts for the Quota. I can make parts or a complete 2 in to 1 system for the Quota. Guaranteed not to crack. Attached is the current iteration on my bike.

...I gots one of the six!!!



serious bling











It's an absolute work of art that sounds wicked
Copious compliments all the time for your meticulous detail...thank you papasloan

That is a work of art. It makes the oil journals accessible for fitting a oil cooler with the OEM crossover gone. Hhhmmmm.........

Quota Exhaust.

Thanks for all the kind words. I have a lot of different exh systems. I stick with the 2 in to one for the Q It seems to work on all Quota's.
I currently have a Power commander 5 on the Q it was made for a harley. Using a dual sensor Autotune. It was the easiest Fuel tuning I ever did. Just update the map from the autotune and ride it some more and upload the changes. Right now it runs better than ever. As for mufflers I can make a muffler like the one in the pics. They work very well and sound good. Although a little on the loud side for some. I got used to mine.
I make 2 styles muffler, one that is packed with fiberglass packing and one that just uses a perforated core like the Bubb mufflers. My Q runs the perf core and my Stone uses the packed core.
Not as loud as a harley though.

Hi fella's

Ridden my Quota thru the dunes of the Sahara desert - didn't expect to slaughter my best mate's GS - but it did!
These things are damn under rated. Guzzi predjudice maybe - usual Italian electrics crap, dunno? I rate 'em ***** !
Never broke, never died, never fell on Morocco's two top hardest rated routes. My mates were constantly on deck. I can't work it out. Gotta conclude the bike is a enduro beast...

New Quota Owner

I guess I am going to revive this thread from the dead. Just picked up a Quota that was for sale here on Adv Rider. Fun bike so far. Going to install the Gustaffson wings that came with it and change all the fluids. Also need to check valve clearance. Used to do valves on my old Ducati SS and wifes monster, so these should be easy. Anyone have a simple trick for getting cylinder to tdc? Thanks, Scott.

Bike on centerstand and put it in 5th gear. Remove the spark plugs. Turn engine over with rear wheel. Put finger over spark plug hole. Feel for air trying to push on your finger, not trying to suck it in. Take a straw and put in plug hole. Continue to turn rear wheel just a bit more until you feel with the straw it is at TDC. Don't use a screwdriver or anything solid in the plug hole. When you do find TDC on compression stroke double check that both valves have that tiny amount of play in them before you try to adjust. If either one doesn't have play you might be on the wrong stroke.
