    Besides the usually suspects with these motors anything I should look out for?
    . I dropped the sump on mine at the first oil change,there was loads of gasket sealer in the sump and the oil strainer was partially blocked.

    112. 113 is also available and zero miles as well. That one comes with a race tank. Benefits of that?

    I missed out on a WSBK Tre Race Bike that sold. The collection is insane. Another zero miles Benelli Tre RS and zero mile Bimota SB8R.

    That's an amazing story. I love it. Beautiful find.

    My bike also has a story but not as interesting as yours.

    Looks a bit like either chewed up bits of cam cover gasket or shavings off the tensioners ??..

    Could be the remains of a bearing cage.

    A better photo with something to give an idea of scale might help identify it.

    I found something similar in the sump of my Laverda Jota. It had chewed up and spat out a bearing cage from one of the gearbox bearings. The bike still ran ok, but the offending bearing had free floating balls rather than caged. When the bike stopped, you could hear a series of small clicks as the balls dropped down to the bottom of the bearing.

    Here you go , tape measure for scale














    Will post a free oil filter to who can identify it and a free fuel filter to who can tell me where it came from.New 2002-dscf1394.jpgNew 2002-dscf1396.jpg

    Hmm … OK, perhaps not a bearing cage.

    Thin metal eh? Part of a cam chain tensioner blade? I dunno I've not had my engine apart far enough to recognise all of its innards.
