Points and other stuff for Guzzi arrived today. Plan on tending to it on Sunday.

Anyone know the proper points gap for a Moto Guzzi V700 (1968).

'66 BMW R60/2, '83 BMW R100RS,'81 BMW R100RS "Das Beast", '87 BMW R850R '77 Honda XL125

+1 for the Dyna. And Rita for the bevels

Stop arguing about the electronic or points ignition. The guy is installing new points. Once done, it should run. Help the guy with his points ignition problem.

Both types of ignition have their merit. Let it be. Hell, the way it is going, the next discussion will be just like yet another oil thread.
