Start of project on our 109,853-mile 2005 Breva V1100: replace leaking CARC Bevel Box Output Seal.


We returned home from a ride on Sunday 28th January to find oil streaks on the rear wheel rim. New OE seal ordered from Gutsibits on 29th January, part number TRA90511 - GU90408511. Delivery lead time 3 to 4 weeks from Italy.

Other parts suppliers are available. See: Moto Guzzi Service & Parts Resource


The entire CARC Bevel Box unit was replaced @ 4,996 miles on 15th April 2006 through a recall program by Moto Guzzi. The leaking seal has lasted 104,857 miles.

While we’re waiting for the CARC Bevel Box Output Seal to arrive we’ve brought forward jobs from this years planned maintenance schedule:


With the leaking seal removed the original main CARC bearing is now visible. No signs of heavy wear or free play. No unexpectd debris on the CARC magnetic drain plug.


Strip, inspect and regrease the rear suspension linkage. This was last done during the 60,000-mile service. Three of the eight needle roller bearings needed replacing. All other original components are reusable.


Upgrade original SACHS rear shock to Hagon rear shock.


Gutsibits part numbers:

Rear suspension bearing SUA81066.

Rear suspension bearing oil seal SUA81068.

Hagon Breva V1100 no remote SUAM67038.
