Roofus, do you happen to know when the last time the valve clearances were checked?
Cheers

Thanks for that roofus, I'll maybe fire them a message in the coming weeks when we see whats happening with all these lockdowns.
Forgot about them mickey, other end of the country so don't know much about them but could be a good shout

They have claimed (to a friend / contact of mine) that the bike is sold - but that was over a month ago...

Several of the new Morini leak from the front cylinder on the near side; my GP does have a slight weep there, but not enough to affect the oil level significantly (i.e. - visual measurement) between service intervals. As I only wash the GP occasionally - Floyd would claim never - I don't really notice it enough to worry about it, and it never drips any oil on the garage floor. But then, I have an old British bike, so my reference levels are a little different...

Good riding,

Thanks for the info Chris, on both fronts.
It looks like that one might have the similar issue then, hardly a deal breaker, just the charm of it :D

Thanks roofus.

72, I always believed Italian bikes don't leak oil, they mark their territory

My old bike, I sold it 2 years ago for 3250, a bargain at the time, nothing wrong with it, I went right through it, having owned it for 4 years, bit over priced I think that’s why it still for sale, worth around 3950 ish?

Hi all
Such a shame this is priced where it is, I would consider buying it back , I spent a lot of time on this bike and know it very well. My modern bike is a Bmw r1200gs rallye with all the bells and whistles, but it does not really excite me like the GP, it’s all a bit refined, very quick competent and probably brilliant but I do have a hankering for my old GP. So if you are thinking of selling in my opinion don’t.

Yeah I'd second that opinion of don't, I sold my 9.5 10 yrs ago and nothing has really compared since, so much so that all being well I've now agreed a sale on my second 9.5 :lol:

Yes, I am trying to hatch a plan myself, there is something about that engine, it’s almost alive like a living being.
Apart from the front forks there is nothing I would change and I believe you can get cartridges for them .
