Grommets used in the battery tray

Moto Guzzi V700, V7 Special, Ambassador, 850 GT, 850 GT California, Eldorado, and 850 California Police models

The battery tray has four holes through which the wire hooks at the bottom of the side covers fit. To ensure a snug fit and to avoid rattles, rubber grommets are fit to these holes.

Alternatively, a length of rubber hose can be fit over each wire hook. The rubber hose stays in place much better than does the rubber grommets. Thanks to Mark Etheridge of Moto Guzzi Classics for sharing this tip with me.
