With Moto Guzzi’s retro-styling, it’s easy to understand why there has been a huge surge in the popularity of these motorcycles in the last few years with more and more people wanting to own vintage or faux-vintage items. However, with their resurgence, there has also been a large aftermarket created for them and more and more people are deciding that a stock, basic, Moto Guzzi, just isn’t what they want to have. Thankfully, there are many companies that have seen this as an opportunity to take motorcycling back to its roots and offer parts for the bikes that were popular amongst racers in decades past.
Some of the most popular parts are mainly for aesthetics, but they do, generally, add a bit of protection for the bike when it is traveling at high speeds. Many people switch parts out, like oil pans and pumps, to help increase the life and ease of maintenance on their machines by using external oil filters instead of the stock internal filters. When they do this, many people will also opt for installing a skid plate over their oil pan to protect it from debris and damage if the bike is laid over.
To find the parts that you need for your Moto Guzzi, you can either choose to go with factory replacement parts of aftermarket replacement/upgrade parts. Purchasing factory parts means you simply need to contact your dealer. Some of the best no-nonsense aftermarket parts are from companies like MGCycle.com, cyclegarden.com and hapermotoguzzi.com where they specialize in Moto Guzzi parts.
