    Probably in the sludge trap in the crank. Not much in the was of selection for cams Rich Maud or you go to Germany the problem is the motor is at the end of its development at that point what people in the 80's fitted to their Guzzis to hot them up will actually de-tune this one.

    Yeh...In the absence of anything usefull coming from me this P.M.

    I will say ... std cams (for this model will do) get 'em nitrided... run slight advance on inlet....slight retard on Ex. 3-5 degrees is good... have Loud's Engine guy ..Ray .. Have a quick look at cam bearing clearances...too ..if you can...

    Use mineral oil...and just change more often... as needs must.

    Look to 'guzzi endurance racer' interesting ...light flywheel/clutch/full balance....just the usual stuff ---for a vee donk....

    have a world of fun.. on this thing....;-)

    use this general advise with diligence and caution.....you may find more fun -than you can handle...

    I did up a guzzi some years ago.
    It was a Mille GT which is similar spec to a California. By the time I finished with it, it was very different. 251kg down to 185kg. Top 160km per hr to 220km.
    And really handled well.
    This will be all of that and another 30hp and real tyres.

    Hydroblasted. Which is a water jet impregnated with fine glass beads and a couple of chemicals.

    Hmmmm cordless driver, sockets and hex bits lying around, loctite master gasket and a hammer ....
    All quality pieces required for a build of this calibre ....
    However ... I see no barked knuckles, blood spots or puddles or trails leading to the bathroom.
    I have found in the past mr 'nutz, that any of the work I do for myself or family doesn't finish right until there has been a blood sacrifice of some description

    Hahahaha yep. But i believe he's now putting it all together....

    Everything is starting from fresh ... This to me requires all new offerings (mind you, I personally am normally trying to apply pressure to breaker bars after a cupla sherbies n that's when i generally make my offerings )

    I am trying not to add extra blood.
    Since the beginning, almost a year ago, I have almost got my right hand back to normal - although it will unfortunately never be the same - small finger and nail are fucked and the bone is a blob inside - I've built a bike and should have the guzzi finished for the big bike show this year. So Im pretty happy all things considered. Target time at this stage is 3months

    Honestly hoping that you don't add more claret than you have already donated, and happy to hear that things have got to a point where they are not hindering you greatly.
    I do apologise if my comments came across the wrong way ....
    But I do like to watch a thread when someone is able to work a machine to be better than what was the original
    Mainly coz I don't think I woould be able to achieve such an awesome result

    Hmmm I'm sure there out there.... most probably locked away by a dad who was a bit of a lad when he was younger and who also has a handshake that would crack walnuts (and most probably a set of knuckle dusters in his back pocket)

    Wouldn't recommend trying any of those "VIRGIN" stores, staff look at you funny if you ask for anything that is 18 years old and tell you the bric-a-brac and antique stores are just down the road

    Oooooooooohhhh hello Mr HMR

    I rember the yellow Guzzi and later the dark blue bimota caffe racer you made -both were excellent bikes , definate silk purses out the pigs ear.

    Ps sorry for thread hijack

    Howdy, yeah a few more bikes done since then. Jim and I don't work together anymore, he does his stuff and I do mine. I had an eight yr hiatus and just build as I feel like it. But I want to build for my own pleasure and hope I have something a little different to the others.
    I'm getting a CNC soon, so I'll be stepping up a notch. 😁
