Part Listing Conventions
Our titles try to be inclusive of all possibilities while the descriptions you’ll find after selecting an item narrow applications. For instance, a lower belt pulley may be listed in its title as for models with a generator so as to include the V700, Ambassador, & Eldorado while the description tells you that it’s specific to the Eldorado but can be re-marked for use on the other models. On our web site, listings only apply to models sold in North America. For instance, if something is listed for a “Nevada” it can only mean the 2005-2008 Nevada 750 Classic ie and not also subsequent models nor carbureted predecessors. So as to ease the flow, we use several terms, borrowed or made up, to classify various models and relationships. They are:
|As perceived by a normally seated rider
|Closer to the fore/aft centerline of the frame
|Farther from the fore/aft longitudinal centerline of the frame
|Situated closer to the most forward point on the motorcycle
|Situated closer to the most rearward point on the motorcycle
|Plural vs. singular
|Singular means just that model while plural means all with that name. For instance, “Daytona” means just the 1993-1994 model while “Daytonas” also includes the later Daytona RS.
|Any model with two valves per cylinder (for a total of 4 valves)
|Any model with four valves per cylinder (for a total of 8 valves)
|Any 2-valve big twin with two identical friction plates in its clutch (manual transmission models before 2013 except Scura, Tenni, Rosso Mandello, and some non-updated 2003-2004 Californias)
|Any model with two parallel rear shock absorbers
|Any 1992-on 992cc (Daytonas, Centauro), or 1225cc (MGS/01) big twin with a belt-driven camshaft in each cylinder head
|Any 2008-on 8-valve 1151 or 1380cc V-twin with a chain-driven camshaft in each cylinder head. This includes models such as the Stelvio which Guzzi sometimes calls an 8V and other times a 4V.
|Any 2-valve model displacing 703cc (700), 749 or 757 (750), 844 (850), 949 (1000), 1064 (1100), 1151cc (1200), or 1380cc (1400)
|Any model displacing 490 (500), 643 (650), or 744 cc (750) – does not include drum-brake big twins from the ‘60s and early ‘70s.
|703cc big twin V7 (so as not to confuse it with the recent 744cc V7 series: Café, Classic, Racer, Stone, Special
|Any big-twin model with oval-shaped cylinder and head fins (all pre-1985 except the overlapping square-fins: California II, T5, and LeMans III)
|Any two-valve big-twin model that has cylinder and head fins with angled corners (all 1983-on big twins except the 1000 SP)
|1967-1974 model with a belt-driven generator
|1971-2012 big twin with removable lower rails under the engine and a crank-driven alternator except those with dual-sport frame (Quotas). The term pays tribute to Lino Tonti, who first designed this straight-tube masterpiece for the V7 Sport.
|Daytonas, Sport 1100s, Centauro, V11s
|Models with footpegs and conventional (low- to medium-height) handlebars
|Variant of civilian model sold to the public with footboards and tall, sweptback handlebars – sometimes referred to as a “California” after bikes sold to the California Highway Patrol but that name is reserved here for 1998-2012 models more commonly called “California” in North America.
|Any big twin with standard 41-mm intake and 37-mm exhaust valves. These engines have 29- or 30-mm carbs or rarely fuel injection (circa ‘88-’92 California III).
|Any big twin with standard 44-mm intake and 37-mm exhaust valves with either 36mm carbs or fuel injection – does not include the uniquely configured Sport 1100s and V11s.
|Any big twin with standard 40-mm carbs, 47mm intake & 40mm exhaust valves – doesn’t include the Sport 1100s & V11s, which have slightly smaller valves.
|Refers both to the V50 I and V50 II unless otherwise specified
|Refers only to this specific model and not also to the US variant, the CX 100
|Refers only to the LeMans I, II, III, IV, and V and not also to the CX 100 unless specifically included. Also does not include the 2002-on V11 LeMans series.

|Refers to the fully-outfitted version of the California III, with a frame-mounted touring fairing, saddlebags, and a trunk
|Refers to just the five-speed version and not also to the California II Automatic unless specifically included or written as plural
|Refers only to carbureted version and not also to the California III ie unless specifically included or written as plural
|Common version of the Cal III without Dresser appointments, may or may not have a windshield and may or may not have saddlebags, but will have standard (not [low] Classic or [big] Dresser) handlebars
|Cal III Classic
|Low-bar Cal III, always without accessories (windshield & bags)
|Refers only to carbureted version and not also to the California 1100i unless specifically included or written as plural. In no case does it mean the 1998-on Californias sharing displacement but otherwise being separate models.
|Since the so-named small-twin adventure bikes were not imported to North America, here this name will only refer to the 2012-on Stelvio variant.
|Refers only to carbureted version and not also to the Sport 1100i unless specifically included or written as plural
|Refers only to the Sport 1100 and Sport 1100i, not also to V11 Sport

|Refers to the V11 series, including Sport models (Sport, Naked, Scura, Rosso Mandello), LeMans models (LeMans, Rosso Corsa, Tenni, Nero Corsa), and Ballabio models (Ballabio, Café Sport, Coppa Italia) but not also to the US-only V11 EV, V11 Jackal, and V11 Bassa (known to the rest of the world and on these pages as the EV, Jackal, and Special respectively).

|Refers to the transmission applied to the V11s
|Refers to the transmission first applied to CARC models and then also the California 1400s
|Standard version (as opposed to a US-specific variant) of a model
|Variant of the more-standard world version specifically for the US and usually also Canada
|i.e., ie, or i
|Model suffix for fuel injection
In spite of search filters, you will probably see more items than what apply to your bike.
