    It does look like a torx from the photo. Maybe a trick of the light. If it's a hex then it won't be from the F800. I've been over virtually every bolt on my current and previous GT when I was putting...

    When I bought my bike I also ordered the panniers. The dealer put them on the bike and failed to adjust the mounts. They jiggled all the way home where I adjusted them properly. The bike's manual...

    Good point Dave. Must be the rubber mounts on the tail light unit isolating it from vibration. Have you ever tried moving it up and down. It wobbles around like a good 'un.

    Glad you managed to get one Tim. They do look good on the bike don't they. Interesting about the availability and line of sight thing. The top of the tinted screen doesn't come anywhere near my line...

    I fitted the OE tail light unit. Apart from the unit you need a new piece of wiring harness as well. The install is quite easy although a bit of dismantling of the rear end is involved. In the end...

    I think the OP was referring to the smaller front drive pulley on the gearbox rather than the large pulley on the rear wheel. If that's the case then it looks as though both pulleys can suffer...

    Do the grips come closer to you when they are rotated downward and further away as they are rotated upward?

    Ok, so I went out to the bike and rotated the rear wheel 360 degrees in the forward direction of rotation. Belt is now back running in the centre of the pulley, which suggests that it runs centrally...

    Thanks Chris, that's really interesting. I have noticed that when I arrive at my destination the belt is central on the pulley. It moves to the edge after I have pushed the bike backward into the...

    Thanks for the replies. My previous GT and ST belts used to run towards the inside of the pulley as well, which makes me wonder if anything is amiss. I'll try wobbling the back wheel to check for...

    Drive Belt Alignment

    I've noticed that my drive belt sits right on the outer edge of the rear pulley. It never moves over the edge and the full width of the rubber teeth are engaged but it looks a bit odd to me. I never...

    You can get the Sports panniers for the GT. Not 100% sure, but when they're not expanded they look to be less deep than the standard touring panniers.

    Biscuits, agree with Ajay. Like him, I have the 20mm risers plus Voigt brake line extender. The Voigt extender puts quite a lot of play in the brake line, so a 30mm riser should be fine. Could you...

    Lonnie, did you try to adjust the bars in the end? I had another look at mine and think I need to revise my earlier post. I now think if they are rotated backward they go down but come closer, if...

    Ted

    That chrome badge is pretty expensive. 51.4 euros at the shop link below, and they are usually pretty competitive on price. Ouch!!

    I've had this too. Light comes on so fill the tank with fuel. Light stays on and no fuel registered until the bike has run a few metres down the road. Then all is well.

    Dave, how far were you leaned over in the corner? As far as I'm aware, the GT has straight line ABS/traction control only. More complex systems have an inertial measurement unit (IMU) which can...

    I was looking at the bars this weekend trying to figure out what happens if they are rotated either forward or backward. It was one of those brain teasers, visualising what happens to the end of a...

    Dave. That's an interesting thought. Yes, on the face of it seems a little odd but thinking about it some more, it makes a lot of sense. I'll check it out. The surge has only started recently, so it...

    When it was 6.5 years old my 2013 GT used to exhibit this behaviour. Only occasionally, but it was annoying when it happened. As others have said, a new battery is the answer.

    I had been considering changing the GT, R1250RS was in the frame and the Guzzi v85TT. However, nice weather here and a few good ride-outs have me enjoying the GT again. The 20 mm bar risers made a...

    I haven't heard of head gasket problems on this bike either. If it's leaking that much water into the oil the oil usually goes a grey colour. It may be a leaking rocker cover gasket, which is common...

    I believe that apart from the large bugs, microscopic dirt particles are also an issue. They act like abrasives when they find their way into the cylinder bores and the slightly bigger dirt particles...

    Moto Guzzi still do a nice range of shaft driven bikes. I think the V85TT is a first for a mid size adventure bike with a shaft. I had a look at one last year. Lovely attention to detail, fit and...

    Thanks for all the replies. I agree with Chris that the throttle response on my 2018 (fly by wire) seems generally much better than it was on my previous GT and ST (both with cable throttles), apart...
