SAFE DRIVE
GUZum_breva750my06_##uk.book Page 6 Monday, May 15, 2006 1:44 PM
BASIC SAFETY RULES
To ride the vehicle it is necessary to be in
possession of all the requirements
prescribed by law (driving licence, minimum
age, psychophysical ability, insurance, state
taxes, vehicle registration, number plate,
etc.).
Gradually get to know the vehicle by
driving it first in areas with low traffic and/or
private areas.
6
use and maintenance Breva
The use of medicines, alcohol and drugs or
psychotropic substances notably increases
the risk of accidents.
Your riding is also affected by your
physical and mental condition - do not ride
if you are feeling ill, upset, tired or sleepy.
Most road accidents are caused by
inexperienced riders.
NEVER lend the vehicle to beginners and,
in any case, make sure that the rider has
all the requirements for driving.
GUZum_breva750my06_##uk.book Page 7 Monday, May 15, 2006 1:44 PM
Strictly observe all posted signs and
national and local road regulations.
Avoid any sudden or risky manoeuvres
that may endanger your and other people's
safety (for example: wheelies, speeding,
etc.), and adjust your riding style to road
surface conditions, visibility, etc.
Avoid obstacles that could damage the
vehicle or make you lose control of the
vehicle.
Avoid riding in the slipstream created by
preceding vehicles in order to increase
your speed.
WARNING
Always hold the handlebars with both
hands and keep both feet on the
footrests (or on the rider's footboards),
in the correct riding position.
Avoid standing up or stretching your
limbs while driving.

GUZum_breva750my06_##uk.book Page 8 Monday, May 15, 2006 1:44 PM
OIL
Do not allow yourself to become distracted
by other persons or by smoking, eating,
drinking, reading etc. when riding.
8
use and maintenance Breva
Use only the specified fuels and lubricants
indicated in the "LUBRICANT CHART" and
check o il and fuel levels at reg ular
intervals.
If the vehicle has been involved in an
accident, check the control levers, pipes
and hoses, wires, the braking system and
key components for damage.
If in doubt, have the vehicle inspected at a
Moto Guzzi Authorised Dealer and ask
them to carefully check the frame,
handlebars, suspensions, safety parts and
all devices whose inspection is best left to
a skilled mechanic.
Always remember to report any
malfunction to the technicians to help them
in their work.
Never use the vehicle when the amount of
damage it has suffered endangers your
safety.
GUZum_breva750my06_##uk.book Page 9 Monday, May 15, 2006 1:44 PM
ONLY ORIGINALS
A12
345
Never change the position, inclination or
colour of: number plate, turn indicators,
lights and horns.
Any modification of the vehicle will result in
the invalidity of the guarantee.
Making any modifications to the vehicle
and/or removing the original components
can adversely affect vehicle performance
and safety or make it illegal to ride.
We recommend respecting all regulations
and national and local provisions regarding
the equipment of the vehicle.
In particular, avoid all modifications that
increase the vehicle’s performance levels
or alter its original characteristics.
Never race with other vehicles.
Do not ride off road.
CLOTHING
Before starting, always wear a correctly
fastened crash helmet. Make sure that it is
homologated, in good condition, of the
right size and that the visor is clean.
Wear protective clothing, preferably in light
and/or reflecting colours. In this way you
will make yourself more visible to the other
riders, thus notably reducing the risk of
being knocked down, and you will be more
protected in case of fall.
This clothing should be very tight-fitting
and fastened at the wrists and ankles;
strings, belts and ties should not be
hanging loose; prevent these and other
objects from interfering with driving by
getting entangled with moving parts or
driving mechanisms.

GUZum_breva750my06_##uk.book Page 10 Monday, May 15, 2006 1:44 PM
Do not ride with sharp or pointed objects in
your pockets as they might cause injury in
the event of a fall
(this includes keys, pens, glass vials, etc. n o t e t h a t t h e s a m e a p pl i e s t o y o u r
passenger).
10
use and maintenance Breva
ACCESSORIES
The owner of the vehicle is responsible for
the choice, installation and use of any
accessory.
Avoid installing accessories that cover
horns or lights or that could impair their
functions, limit the suspension stroke and
the steering angle, hamper the operation of
the controls and reduce the ground
clearance and the angle of inclination in
turns.
Avoid using accessories that hamper
access to the controls, since this can
prolong reaction times during an
emergency.
Big fairings and windshields installed on
the vehicle may produce aerodynamic
forces that affect the stability of the vehicle,
especially when riding at high speed.
Make sure any accessories installed are
fastened securely to the vehicle and will not
affect safety during riding.
Do not install electrical devices and do not
modify those already existing to avoid
electrical overloads, because the vehicle
could suddenly stop or there could be a
dangerous current shortage in the horn and
in the lights.
Moto Guzzi recommends the use of
genuine accessories (Moto Guzzi genuine
accessories).
LOAD
Be careful not to overload the vehicle with
exceeding luggage. Place your luggage as
close as possible to the centre of gravity of
the vehicle and make sure its weight is
evenly distributed across both sides of the
vehicle to keep it stable. Furthermore, make
sure that the load is firmly secured to the
vehicle, especially during long trips.
GUZum_breva750my06_##uk.book Page 11 Monday, May 15, 2006 1:44 PM
KG!
Avoid fixing bulky, heavy and/or dangerous
objects to the handlebars, mudguards and
forks - this could slow down the vehicle's
response in turns and would inevitably
affect handling.
Do not secure bulky bags to the vehicle
sides, as they could hit people or obstacles
when riding, resulting in loss of control.
Do not carry any luggage unless firmly
secured to the vehicle.
Do not carry any bags which protrude too
much over luggage rack or cover the lights,
horn or indicators.
Do not carry pets or children sitting on the
glove compartment or on the luggage rack.
Do not exceed the maximum load capacity
of each luggage rack.
The overloaded vehicle will become
unstable and handle poorly.

DISC BRAKES
WARNING
The brakes are the parts that most
ensure your safety and for this reason
they must always be perfectly working;
check them before every trip.
A dirty disc will soil the pads, leading to
loss of braking efficiency.
Dirty pads must be replaced, while dirty
discs must be cleaned with a highquality degreaser.
Have brake fluid changed every two
years by a Moto Guzzi Authorised
Dealer.
Use brake fluid meeting the
specifications listed in the lubricant
chart, see page 85 (LUBRICANT
CHART).
NOTE This vehicle is equipped with
front and rear disc brakes operated by
independent hydraulic circuits.
The front braking system is with single disc
(left side).
The rear braking system is the single disc
type (left side).
The following information refers to a single
braking system, but is valid for both.
When the disc pads wear out, the level of
the fluid decreases to automatically
compensate for their wear.
The front brake fluid reservoir is positioned
on the right handlebar, near the front brake
lever coupling.
The rear brake fluid reservoir is located
behind the footpeg bracket, on the righthand side of the motorcycle.
NOTE
Halve maintenance intervals if
you are riding in rainy or dusty conditions,
on rough road surfaces or when the vehicle
is used in competitions.
Have the brake discs checked by a Moto
Guzzi Authorised Dealer after the first
1000 km (625 mi) and then every 2000 km
(1243 mi).
Before leaving, check brake fluid level in
the reservoirs, see page 30 (FRONT
BRAKE), page 31 (REAR BRAKE), and
check brake pads, see page 60
(CHECKING THE BRAKE PADS FOR

TYRES
This vehicle is equipped with tubeless
tyres.
Change the tyre when it is worn out or in
case of puncture on the tread side, if the
puncture is larger than 5 mm.
After repairing a tyre, have the wheels
balanced.
NOTE Halve maintenance intervals if
you are riding in rainy or dusty conditions,
on rough road surfaces or when the vehicle
is used in competitions.
WARNING
WARNING
Check the inflation pressure at room
temperature every two weeks.
Check the conditions of the tyres and the
inflation pressure at room temperature
after the first 1000 km (625 mi) and then
every 7500 km (4687 mi), see page 82
(TECHNICAL DATA).
If the tyres are hot, the measurement is
not correct.
Carry out the measurement especially
before and after long rides.
If the inflation pressure is too high, the
ground unevenness can not be
dampened and is therefore transmitted to
the handlebar, thus compromising the
driving comfort and reducing the road
holding during turns.
If, on the contrary, the inflation pressure
is too low, the tyre sides (1) are under
greater stress and the tyre itself may slip
on the rim or it may become loose, with
consequent loss of control of the vehicle.
32
use and maintenance Breva
2
The tyres could come off the rims under
hard braking.
Further, the vehicle could skid while
turning.
WARNING
Check the surface and the wear of the
tyres, since tyres in bad conditions can
impair both the grip and the vehicle
handling.
Some of the tyres approved for this
vehicle are equipped with wear
indicators.
There are several kinds of wear
indicators. For more information on how
to check the tyres for wear, contact your
Dealer.
Visually inspect the tyres for wear and
have them changed if worn.
Use tyres of the specified type and
model recommended by the
manufacturer, see page 82 (TECHNICAL
DATA). Using other than specified tyres
may adversely affect handling.
Do not install tyres with air tube on rims
for tubeless tyres and vice versa.
Make sure that the inflation valves (2)
always have their sealing caps on, to
prevent the tyres from suddenly going
flat.
Tyre replacement and repair, and wheel
servicing and balancing are delicate
operations that should be carried out
using adequate tools and are best left to
experienced mechanics.
For this reason, it is advisable to have
the above mentioned operations carried
out by a Moto Guzzi Authorised Dealer
or by a qualified tyre repairer.

ENVIRONMENT.
If the tyres are new, they may still be
covered with a slippery film: drive
carefully for the first few miles. Do not
oil the tyres with unsuitable fluids. Old
tyres, even if not completely worn
down, may become hard and provide
poor grip.
In this case, replace them.

The downshifting should be carried out
in the following situations:
WARNING

u When riding downhill or when braking, in
order to increase the braking action by
using the compression of the engine.
u When riding uphill, if the gear engaged is
not suitable to the speed (high gear,
moderate speed) and the engine rpm
decreases.
CAUTION
Shift the gears one by one; the
simultaneous downshifting of more
than one gear may make you exceed the
maximum rpm (redline).
Before and during the downshifting,
release the throttle grip and decelerate,
in order to avoid the “redline”.
To avoid the overheating of the clutch,
keep the engine running with vehicle at
rest, engaged gears and pulled clutch
lever for the shortest time possible.
To shift down, proceed as follows:
u Release the throttle grip (2) (Pos.A).
u If necessary, pull the brake levers
moderately and decrease the speed of
the vehicle.
u Pull the clutch lever (3) and lower the
gear shift lever (4) to shift down.
u If the brake levers are pulled, release
them.
u Release the clutch lever and accelerate
moderately.
CAUTION
If the wording "
" appears during
normal engine operation, it means that
the ECU has detected a failure.
Avoid opening and closing the throttle
repeatedly and continuously, so that
you do not accidentally lose control of
the vehicle. If you have to brake, close
the throttle and put on both brakes in
order to obtain uniform deceleration,
properly exerting pressure on the
braking parts.
Using one brake only reduces braking
force significantly and may lock a wheel
resulting in loss of grip.
If you stop uphill, decelerate completely
and use the brakes only to keep the
vehicle steady.
The use of the engine to keep the
vehicle steady may cause the
overheating of the clutch.

When approaching a bend, slow down
or brake in good time. Take the bend at
moderate, steady speed or accelerate
slightly. Late braking may put the
vehicle into a skid.
If the brakes are operated continuously
on downhill stretches, the friction
surfaces may overheat, thus reducing
the braking efficiency. Exploit the
engine compression and shift down by
putting on both brakes intermittently.
Never ride downhill with the engine off!
If the road surface is wet or slippery
(snow, ice, mud, etc.), ride slowly, do
not brake or swerve suddenly, or you
may lose grip and fall.
WARNING
Pay the utmost attention to any
obstacle or variation of the ground.
Uneven road surfaces, rails, inspection
covers, painted signals, construction
site metal covers become slippery in
rainy weather and must be negotiated
carefully, smoothly and keeping the
vehicle upright.
Always signal your intention to change
lanes or direction in good time using
the direction indicators. Avoid sudden
manoeuvres.
Switch off the direction indicators
immediately after changing direction.
Be very careful when overtaking or
being overtaken.
When it rains, large vehicles lift surface

RUNNING-IN
The running-in of the engine is essential to
ensure its life and correct operation.
If possible, ride on hilly roads and/or roads
with many bends, so that the engine, the
suspensions and the brakes undergo a
more effective running-in.
During running-in, change speed.
In this way the components are first
“loaded” and then “relieved” and the
engine parts can thus cool down.
Even if it is important to stress the engine
components during running-in, take care
not to exceed.
NOTE From 2000 km (1243 mi) onward,
the engine is ready to provide top
performance.
Keep to the following indications:
u Do not open the throttle completely if the
speed is low, both during and after
running-in.
u Until you have covered the first 100 km
(62 mi), use the brakes gently and avoid
harsh, prolonged braking. This ensures
a correct bedding-in of the pads on the
brake disc.
u During the first 1000 km (625 mi) never
exceed 5000 rpm.
GUZum_breva750my06_##uk.book Page 45 Monday, May 15, 2006 1:44 PM
PARKING
It is very important to choose a suitable
parking area, respecting the road signs
and the indications given below.
WARNING
After the first 1000 km (625 mi), have a
Moto Guzzi Authorised Dealer carry
out the checks indicated in the column
“After running-in” of the regular service
intervals chart, see page
49
(SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE CHART),
in order to avoid hurting yourself or
other people and/or damaging the
vehicle.
WARNING
Park the vehicle on firm and flat ground,
to prevent it from falling down.
Neither lean the vehicle against walls,
nor lay it on the ground.
u After the first 1000 km (625 mi) and until
covering 2000 km (1243 mi), drive more
briskly, varying speed and using
maximum acceleration for just a few
seconds, in order to ensure better
coupling of the components; never
exceed 6000 rpm (see table).
u After the first 2000 km (1243 mi) you
may run the engine harder, however,
without exceeding the maximum rpm
allowed (7600 rpm).

or other substances from getting inside
the cylinder.
Inspection and cleaning:
CAUTION
This vehicle is fitted with spark plugs
with platinum electrodes.
Do not clean the spark plugs with a wire
brush and/or abrasive products, use
compressed air only.
Key:
– centre electrode (3);
– insulating (4);
– side electrode (5).
u Make sure that there are neither carbon
deposits, nor corrosion marks on the
electrodes and on the insulating
material; if necessary, blow with
compressed air to clean them.
If the spark plug has crackings on the
insulating material, corroded electrodes,
excessive deposits or the tip (6) of the
central electrode (3) is rounded, it must be
changed.
CAUTION
When changing the spark plug, check
the thread pitch and length.
If the threaded part is too short, the
carbon deposits will accumulate on the
thread seat, and therefore the engine
may be damaged during the installation
of the right spark plug.
Use recommended spark plugs only,
see page 82 (TECHNICAL DATA). A
spark plug of the wrong rating may
shorten engine life and cause loss of
performance.
Electrode gap should be checked using

CAUTION
Do not repair faulty fuses.
Never use fuses different from the
recommended ones.
The use of unsuitable fuses may cause
damages to the electric system or, in
case of short circuit, even a fire.
NOTE
If a fuse blows frequently, there
probably is a short circuit or an overload in
the electric system.
In this case it is advisable to contact a
Moto Guzzi Authorised Dealer.
If an electric component does not work or
works irregularly, or if the vehicle fails to
start, it is necessary to check the fuses.
