Moto Guzzi Quota 1000, Quota 1100 ES
2010 Sep 21 – I sold my 2000 Moto Guzzi Quota 1100 ES. I owned the Quota for over six years and sold it with 49,296 miles on the odometer (I put 29,796 miles on it). This page of material devoted to the Quota will remain active.
Air filter replacement
Thanks to Charlie Taliaferro for providing this information on the Yahoo! Guzzi_Quota news group. In Charlie’s own words:
Dimensions: 1.00 inch H; 8.75 inch L; 5.25 inch W
Applications: Same as above, plus some Cagiva (Gran Canyon, etc.)
I have ordered the CG-9002 because the dimensions appear to be closest to stock. The 33-2682 is just 1 ⁄ 8 inch too long, but I imagine it could be made to fit within the airbox.
Brake light switch replacement (front)
Thanks to Paul Bonneau, Bert Fox, and Alfred Jorgensen for this information.
If your front brake light switch needs replacing, here are a few sources:
Your local Moto Guzzi dealer may have it in stock for 5 or 6 bucks.

Brake line protection
Updated: 2007 Jun 14
Thanks to Roland Schaeffer for providing the following photos and information regarding how he is protecting the front brake lines on his Quota. In Roland’s own words:
On your site you wrote:
Oh, by the way, when the forks were empty of oil and springs I moved the wheel up and down in its travel. If the travel is supposed to be 6.7 inch as bikez.com says, then it appears the fender will hit the pipes coming out of the brake union before that 6.7 inch is taken up. I’m thinking I will tilt these back some when I replace my brake fluid.
Here are some pictures of how I solved this problem. I guess that this may cause problems if you do not take off the lower fairing part like I did, for when the fork travels in, the pipes are bent backward, so that they need more clearance than what is given in the original fairing configuration.
