thank you. I did not know what that piece was called, I was looking for a center and nothing appeared, I found something on eBay, at an exaggerated price but good

best way to search is to get yourself a copy of the partslist for your bike, look up the parts number and then punch it in an internet search.

truth is that I'm more than lost on this bike, now another problem arises and I think I'm fat ...
I bought the original footrests and when I went to place the one on the right side of the motorcycle (where the gear change goes) the screw where it fits did not give me to put it, it is too short, I think someone cut it in his day for some reason.
my question is if anyone knows the measurement of this intern, mine measures 30 cm ... or the same 11.8 inches.
If someone knows the size of this I would like to know it since I am going to make one with a steel rod and so I could tell the turner to make it like the original ...
I attach photos, although they are in cm it is to give you an idea

550F rests are not on the same bolt. The right side fitted on the boss just below the swing arm bolt. Shown in pic 3 of the pics you posted on 1st November. This right footrest was only used on the F and not on the K versions. The footrest folded up to allow kick starting. So you probably have the correct bolt.

So, does anyone know where the footpegs of the F model fit, I have been looking in the manual that I downloaded but it is not clear. Before telling me anything, I thought that the strive on the side of the gearbox (left) was hooked to the bolt that acts as a through-hole of the engine.
If anyone has photos of where the footrests are fitted I would appreciate it since as you can see I am lost

thank you. is that I have been looking online and through the forum and it had only created more doubts, now thanks to your photos I see that the footrests, the one on the right side goes to the coupling that brings the chassis (attached image) and on the left side it goes to the screw that holds the motor ...
Luckily you have given me the photos because what a head feeder.
photo attachment where you hook the right footrest

Hello everyone again, today searching through the material that they sent me with the sling I have seen a piece like this from the photo that I attach, I know it is from the cable of the revolution counter and the odometer but looking online and for the manual that I download I cannot find anything, I know it is from those 2 cables because I have seen the piece on eBay

I dont understand the question? Are you looking for this part?  Not available from Honda.

no, I have that piece in the garage, it came to me disassembled from the motorcycle and I don't know where it is located on the motorcycle. I know it's something to do with the odometer and rev counter cables, I think, but I don't know where it goes exactly. that's my doubt...

Thank you very much, right now I'm very busy at work and with the guzzi (which is the apple of my eye) but I have found pieces and pieces in the box that the other owner sent me and I don't even know what they are for.
I have spoken with a painter friend and he will try to paint everything in the original orange color, to see if when it is painted I can upload more photos

Hello everyone.
This week I was closing the electrical harness that I have made myself, the motorcycle worked perfectly and did not give any fault until suddenly it began to blow the main fuse just by hitting the ignition ...
I began to undo the harness and with a multimeter look for the source of the short circuit until it reaches the regulator. I think it is wrong since it continues in all the anchors.
I leave you a video and let's see if someone can tell me something before buying a new one, lest I be wrong ...
this bike leads me astray !!!

I have looked online if it is normal for there to be continuity between the 3 cables of the regulator and I think it is not normal.
When I studied my professional training in electronics I think I remember that electronic regulators could not give continuity between them 3 nor exaggerated measurements of ohms.
I think the regulator has gone to heaven.
although using logic it does not make sense that the continuity regulator between ground and positive ...
