Which spare parts and tools to take along on a journey with a Moto Guzzi V7 Classic?
I'm planning a 3-4 weeks trip to Romania, Bulgaria and parts of the balcan in July/Aug 2012 with my gf.
We wanna go 2-up on my Moto Guzzi V7 Classic. No camping intended, we'll try to keep the package tight in two HB cases, a tankbag and a small waterproof roll on the back.
We've done a couple of day- and weekend trips so far and have always been amazed of how comfortable the V7C is still after long hours in the saddle.
The bike is quite new with acutally about 5k km on the clock and there haven't been any major issues with it so far except some loose screws at the bends from those lovely Guzzi 90°-V2-vibrations.
As we're 2-up, I'd wanna keep the ballast as low as possible.
I would be happy to read some tips and hints on which spare parts and tools are essential to take in you opinion.
I'm not a big mechanic myself, so any special tools to de-mount the engine on the road side do not need to be on top of the list.
Oil changes and maintenance has been done recently and I'll have a pre-start check with my dealer right before we leave.
What I thought to take so far would include:
- the factory toolset
- screwdriver, allen keys in given sizes, wrenches in given sizes, claw, cable ties, Gaffa-tape
- 2 spare spark plugs
- flat tire repair kit (none specific chosen yet, I'm thankful for tips! The tires are the regular Metzeler tubeless)
Thanks for your help in advance,
many greetings from Berlin
