Spot light bracket spacers
Moto Guzzi V700, V7 Special, Ambassador, 850 GT, 850 GT California, Eldorado, and 850 California Police models
When fitting spot light brackets to the headlight bucket and windshield bracket, a 8 mm ID (~5⁄16 inch) spacer is needed to prevent the bracket from fouling the headlight ears of the fork shrouds AND to ensure proper mating with the windshield bracket. I've not seen any reference to this spacer in the spare parts catalogs. My preference is to use a 12 mm (~1⁄2 inch) long spacer sandwiched between two fender washers. The fender washers prevent damage to the headlight ears of the fork shrouds and spot light brackets. The fender washers I use are approximately 1.8 mm thick each (see McMaster-Carr part number 92510A797 and McMaster-Carr part number 91116A160).
