    Hi Mark,
    Mike Brown had 100 of these stickers made a couple of years ago. He might still have some left if you're quick.

    Also, if you are still looking for the alternator rotor removal tool, you can get them from Moto Guzzi parts people. Gutsibits in the UK have them on their web site:

    I see you are in the States, so you will probably want to look somewhere more local to you, but at least you can see what you're looking for. It is really just a long bolt, but it needs to be strong as you will need a lot of torque to pop you rotor off ( in my experience ).

    Thanks,
    I did get the long bolt type tool, I’m replacing the alternator with the higher output permanent magnet one from endurolast. The rotor came right off with the tool.

    I split the cases this morning. One thing I noticed when I took a connecting rod cap off- the manual says: The locating teeth should face the front of the engine.
    At least on the one I took off, it was facing the rear.

    Does anyone know if the manual is correct for that? I have not taken the rest off, although the weight marking on them is sometimes toward the front, sometimes toward the rear- so I suspect the rods are in both directions...

    I have seen signs the engine has been at least part way apart- looks to me like the locking rings on some nuts have been re-used. But no other signs. It is a later bike, so I don’t think it would have been part of the gearbox recall. (I certainly could be wrong on that). Gearbox looks great. Bearings look pretty good, but I’m going to replace them- I do see some wear. I have not measured clearance yet (out of Plastigauge).

    thanks for any help.
