Latest Mandello-news, May 03 2019: 

Guzzi V85 TT is sold out for 2019!

(except models in stock or already ordered; delivery time 2 - 6 weeks)

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Summary of the moto media and V85-owners: 

Outstanding and impressive! Fun to drive, easy to handle, top quality and faultless. Very good accessories. A bike to love  - technical data are one thing, but reality checks proves different: this bike exceeds your expectations!

 

Fact: With the V85 TT, Guzzi delivers a top quality motorcycle since day one of the start of production. Guzzi is back!

More than 70% of trade-ins towards purchases of the V85 TT are from non-Guzzi brands!

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Quality and reability issues: none! - otherwise it's covered by Guzzi warranty. Known issues will be fixed in the production process immediately.

 

Minor issues are known, from experience from V85-riders. These are mainly issues caused by suppliers or the Guzzi dealer. All covered by the Guzzi warranty - free of charge.  

 

- Cracks in the original screen around the fixing points of the screen:

Cracks in original windshield - Guzzi V85Cracks in original windshield - Guzzi V85

Reason: Screen screws have been tightened too strong

Solution: Improve the seal of the windshield screws and do not overwind the screws; long-term: improve thickness of screen

Update: since June 2019 no further issues reported

 

- Oil loss/leak from the oil pressure sensor above the oil pan:

Oil loss from oil pressure sensor -  Guzzi V85Oil loss from oil pressure sensor - Guzzi V85

Oil pressure sensor with seal - Guzzi V85Oil pressure sensor with seal - Guzzi V85

Reason: daydreaming meccano - if the oil pressure sensor is checked and taken out, the o-ring seal has to be replaced. If the sensor is put back in place without replacing the seal, it does not fit properly and oil is leaking...

Quick-fix home-made: Replace the o-ring seal yourself

Solution: proper service training and sending out service alert

Update: Since July 2019: no further issues reported

 

- fogged turning signal glass:

Fogged turning light glass - Guzzi V85Fogged turning light glass - Guzzi V85

Known issue also from MV Augusta models

Reason: low quality seal from supplier

Solution: drill an small hole in the bottom of the turning signal casing/glass so that the humidity blows off

Update July 2019: fix is on the way since July 2019

 

- leaking shaft drive oil (rare)

Shaft drive oil spilt on wheel - Guzzi V85Shaft drive oil spilt on wheel - Guzzi V85

Several causes: 

- shaft drive oil overfilled so it escapes via the venting/pressure relief valve on the top of the bevel gear/differential and oil is spilled over the right side of the spoken will and tire side wall

- bad seal used for the bevel gear (image)

- wrong shaft drive oil used which is too thin and escapes via the bevel gear seal

- venting/pressure relief valve is blocked or dirty

Solutions: check the correct oil filling and use only the recommended shaft drive oil;  check the proper function of the venting/pressure relief valve; improved seal to be used as following models affected: V85, V7, V9

 

Update August 1st 2019: main cause is probably excess pressure in the shaft drive due overfilling with shaft drive oil. The 180 cm3/ml - as mentioned in the manual - is the factory filling. When the oil is being replaced, the oil quantity has to be only 160 cm3/ml - as about 20 cm3/ml remains. 

Solution: the correct quantity of shaft oil when replacing/servicing has to be 
160 cm3/ml, also confirmed by Guzzi.

Solutions 2 & action since June 2019: The few damaged bevel gear seals including the shaft drives were and are being analyzed by Moto Guzzi to find the cause of the oil leak. The Guzzi warranty will cover this repair.

 Constant quality checks are made on the supplied seals and production process has been improved to focus on delivering a rock-solid and fault free shaft drive. 

Update September 15 2019: Only early V85 production models for the European market are affected, in average less than 2.5 % of the first series produced from March till May 2019 have a leaking bevel-gear issue. 

All V85 for export round the world - except Europe - are rock-solid and fault-free.

 

Update December 12/16 2019: Moto Guzzi USA: NHTSA issues 2 recalls on Guzzi V85, dated Dec 2/3 2019. 
--> - NHTSA - 2 Recalls 2020 Moto Guzzi V85 TT

The recalls are due to legal & warranty issues. Potential final shaft drive oil leak (371 Guzzi V85 affected) and potential defective footrest mounting pins (399 V85 affected).

Important: there are no NHTSA investigations or complaints known.

For Guzzi riders: check the potential final shaft drive oil leak before, during and after your ride - to be on the safe side. Only a few of the 371 Guzzi V85 produced during March-September 2019 may be affected.
