Special tools - see why you'll need them.

On most occasions you can fix your Moto Guzzi with ordinary tools, but some parts of the engine do require special tools. They are available from the factory, but the general quality of these items wont make you cheer and sing.

Rolf Halvorsen from Norway manufactures and sell a collection of the most common special tools for bigblock Guzzi's, all made in a significant better quality than the original ones.

You can buy the tools as a set, or just the one you need right now. Have a look at this chart to find out which one is for what task.

Believe it or not, Rolf is actually selling these tools on a none profit basis. That doesn't mean that they are cheap - quality rarely comes cheaply......

Rolf can be contacted by mail.

Rolf Johansen (also from Norway, but another Rolf) have written a very fine article about these tools and the use of them. Whether you plan to buy your tools in Norway or not, I advise you to read the article - its splendid reading.
