as in convert? automatic? .... nope.

excellent. thanks very much. is the extra stud an update/upgrade, or just extra?

decided i'd get that harness and some misc bits out too. i was working on it so might as well finish what i wanted to do. now time to get some work done so there's some money to pay for the thing!

Greg Bender of This Old Tractor has something you need....see pg 45

Greg is a Saint, and one of the people that make Guzzi's such a great bike to own.

Round-Fin Geese (which yours is) have 6 cylinder head studs. Four are long and pass all the way through the cylinder head and clamp the rocker-arm pedestal to the head (and in doing so the head to the barrel, and the barrel to the cases). There are two additional cylinder head studs, directly inboard and outboard, that are short and just clamp to the head. Access is through the little hole you are looking at (inboard) and just below the spark-plug (outboard).

These two short studs, and the fact that there are no oil passages in the way, make the Round Fin motors easy to twin-plug

on second thought - that's not a v1000 cover. it sure looks like one. but it's not. the top mount is different -i would assume the top mount is for lower frame rail delete - but the casting up top is like v1000 cam end..

sure beats old vw's with 4 10mm studs a foot long hanging off stretched heli-coils. rather robust this guzzi machine. the more i look at it the more i dig it. except those linked brakes which i'll complain about later.

now this page 45. i'm a little tired this evening. love the manual. *file-save as* ... throw me a better hint here. page marked 45. page 45 of the pdf?

aha. you're getting warmer. damn hot actually! it is indeed to assist with the lower frame rail delete.
