Hi, I am selling my MG California EV11. It's in classic Moto Guzzi colors of HDM (referred to as hot dog and mustard). As I'm getting older, I no longer go on "distance rides" and no longer need an "over the road cruiser". I'm not ready to stop riding, but after some surgery I'd like to sell this and buy something that is lighter. Enough to keep riding and do errands around town and keep up with traffic. Over the past two. years, I've spared no expense in making sure it is safe and capable of going anywhere at anytime. I have invoices for the following that total over $6000. The maintenance and repair items include but are not limited to:
CD/DVD manuals
Spare Parts catalog, this identifies the specific part numbers when you're working on the bike ($25.00)
Workshop manual ($50.00)
New alternator and regulator ($1145)
Rebuild front forks ($500)
New brake pads, clean and flush brake system ($312)
Change engine oil/filter, gear oil ($136)
Replace both tires with Michelin Commander II's ($421). Check them out on YouTube. EVERYONE that has them absolutely loves them. I do too. I wouldn't want to ride on anything else
Diagnose/repair "rough idling/riding" ($594)
Replace incorrect dip-stick with the correct one ($31.00)
Adjust valves
Replace valve cover gaskets
Replace oil/filter with synthetic oil-I also have a spare oil filter and set of gaskets for the oil pan. With the expense of a shop doing it, I plan on changing my own oil in the future. Generally I change the oil between 4000 and 5000 miles
Flush and re-fill transmission fluid
Lube drive shaft
Replace spark plugs with Iridium plugs
Lube cables: throttle, clutch, brake and choke
Replace Air filter
Synchronize Throttle Body
Replace battery with new, 30a sealed AGM unit (Interstate FAYIX30L)
Drain and flush fuel tank
Clean fuel injectors
Replace and adjust new clutch
New LED headlight & tailight/brakelight
National Cycle windshield
All of the above, without individual prices listed totals over $3400
I only use Sunoco 93 octane. Once I fill the tank, I always put an appropriate amount of Seafoam in the tank to keep it clean and stop the ethanol from clogging the injectors. The inside of the tank is perfectly clean.
I have a battery tender hard wired to the battery which also allows me to run a USB line to the handlebars so that I can charge my phone and more specifically use WAZE for directions. I expect to keep the wiring to the battery and the charger, but I will leave the handlebar USB connector in place under the tank.
I've tried to be a informative as possible as to the bike and it's condition. A picture is above. Everyone generally want to see specific pictures. Let me know what additional pictures you would like and I'll do my best to get them for you. I've listed the mileage as of today, but it will go up as I'm still riding it.
I would consider a trade for something lighter. I especially like Ducati Monsters and Moto Guzzi V7 & V9"s...
