Preliminary checks
Check:
that there is sufficient fuel in the tank;
that the engine oil is on the right level;
the ignition key is in position ON «
» (see fig. 3);
that the following warning lights are on:
— red warning lights: oil pressure and generator;
— green warning light: «NEUTRAL» indicator;
that the «CHOKE» control lever is in the starting position (if the engine is cold)
(«1», fig. 4);
that switch «B» (fig. 5) is in position «

Cold starting
After making the above checks, engage the clutch and press the button (A «
5).
» in fig.
Once the engine has started, and before putting the «CHOKE» lever back to its normal
running position («2» in fig. 4), allow the engine to idle for a few seconds in summer or a
few minutes in winter.
ATTENTION! - If the «green» warning light does not come on when the ignition

switch is on (see ON «
starting the vehicle in this condition could be dangerous.
Before starting, always check that the engine is in «neutral».
20
MOTO GUZZI • Quota 1100 ES • Owner’s Manual
Warm start
Follow the same procedure as that for the cold start but without the «CHOKE» control in the
start position («1», fig. 4).
WARNING! - The starter motor should not be operated for more than 5
seconds; if the engine doesn’t start, wait for 10 seconds before the following
starting operation. Anyway act on the starter button A «
the engine completely stopped.
» in fig. 5 only with
On the way
To change gear, shut the throttle, disengage the clutch fully and engage the next gear; then
engage the clutch gradually while opening the throttle.
The gear change pedal should be operated firmly and surely.
When changing down use the brakes gradually and close the throttle gradually to avoid
over-revving the engine, when releasing the clutch lever.
Stopping the motorcycle
Close the throttle and use the brakes; just as the vehicle is about to stop disengage the
clutch. These three operations should be carefully coordinated to maintain full control of the
vehicle. When slowing down in normal conditions, use the gearbox to provide engine
braking to slow the vehicle; take care not to over-revving the engine. Use the brakes
(especially the front brake) with particular care when roads are slippery or wet.
To stop the engine, turn the ignition switch till the position OFF «
» (see fig. 3).
Parking
On badly lit roads, leave the parking lights on.
Turn the key switch to position P «
to position «
» (see figure 3), and the light switch «A» in fig. 5
»; and remove the key from the switch.
IMPORTANT
Do not leave the switch to «
» for long periods or the battery will run down.

MOTO GUZZI • Quota 1100 ES • Owner’s Manual
RUNNING-IN
The recommendations below should be followed when running-in:
Before riding, run the engine at low revs until it has warmed up.
Do not exceed the rpm shown in the table; it is also advisable to run the engine at
varying speeds rather than at a constant speed.
Before stopping reduce the speed gradually to avoid subjecting components to
sudden changes in temperature.
Remember that components need several thousand kilometers before they are
properly bedded in; care taken in this period will ensure prolonged vehicle life.
After the first 500÷1,500 km
Change the engine oil.
Should the oil level drop to the minimum level before the first 500÷1,500
kilometers have been completed then carry out a complete oil change rather than
just topping up. Recommended oil: «Agip 4T SUPER RACING SAE 20W/50».
Replace gear lubrication oil.
Replace transmission box lubrication oil.
Check that all nuts and bolts are tight.
Check rocker clearance.
Check tire pressures.

MAINTENANCE AND
ADJUSTMENTS
Adjusting the clutch lever
(fig. 14)
There should be no more or less than 3÷4 mm of free play at the lever; turn ring nut «A» to
obtain the desired play.
This adjustment can also be carried out on cable tightener «B» after having loosened lock
nut «C» fitted on the right hand side of the gear box.
Checking brake pads wear
Check the thickness of the brake pads every 3000 km:
Wear limit 1.5 mm.
If the pads are below the wear limit they should be changed.
There is no need to bleed the brakes when the new pads have just been fitted; pumping the
brake lever a few times will return the caliper pistons to their normal position.
When changing the pads, also check the flexible hoses; if damaged they should be replaced
immediately.
N.B. - Use the brakes with moderation for the first 100 km after fitting new
brake pads, to allow the pads to get properly bedded in.
Checking brake disks
The brake disks must be perfectly clean, with no oil, grease or other dirt on them. They
should also show no signs of scoring.
The torque wrench setting of the screws that fix the disk to the hubs is 3÷3.2 kgm.
23
MOTO GUZZI • Quota 1100 ES • Owner’s Manual
Checking the brake fluid in the master
cylinder reservoir
(fig. 15)
To ensure efficient operation of the brakes:
1
Make frequent checks of the fluid level in the front «A» and rear «B» reservoirs.
The level should always be above the minimum mark on the reservoirs.
2
Top up the brake fluid when necessary or at regular intervals. Only use
recommended brake fluid in sealed containers for topping up.
Fluid containers should only be unsealed immediately before they are
about to be used.
3
The fluid in the brake reservoirs should be changed completely after about every
20,000 km, or at least once a year.
To ensure efficient braking there should be no air bubbles in the brake circuit; if the
brake lever has too much travel or a spongy action, this means that there are
bubbles in the brake circuit.
When flushing the Brake circuits, only use fresh brake fluid.
Never use alcohol for flushing or compressed air for drying; we
recommend the use of «trichloroethylene» for metal parts.
Never use mineral oils or greases for lubricating parts. If no suitable lubricant
is available, we recommend the light greasing of the rubber and metal parts with
brake fluid.
Recommended fluid «Agip Brake Fluid DOT 4».
IMPORTANT. Fluid should be handled with care, as it may dissolve
paintwork.
These operations are best carried out by an authorized dealer.
Rear brake pedal adjustment
(fig.16)
24
MOTO GUZZI • Quota 1100 ES • Owner’s Manual
Check that brake pedal «A» has an idle stroke of approx. 5÷10 mm. before the end of
dipstick «B» comes into contact with the brake pump master cylinder; otherwise alter the
length of dipstick «B» by tightening or untightening it, after having loosened off lock nut
«C». To alter the height of pedal «A» loosen off lock nut «D» and adjust screw «E», at the
same time altering the length of dipstick «B» until the desired play has been achieved.
Adjusting the rear shock absorbers
(fig. 17)
The motorcycle is equipped with single shock absorbers with separate adjustment of the
springs pre-loading and the action of the dampers in extension.
To adjust the pre-loading of the spring, remove the saddle using the correct wrench, loosen
off ringnut «A» and adjust ringnut «B»; tightening up increases the spring pre-loading.
To adjust the hydraulic braking in extension, work on the ring nut «C». Turn it counterclockwise to increase, clockwise to decrease.
N.B.: To avoid damaging the thread between the damper body and the ring nut
«B», lubricated the thread with «SVITOL», with oil or with grease.
Adjusting the steering
(fig. 18)
To ensure safe riding, the steering should be adjusted to allow free movement of the
handlebars without any play.
loosen the steering head fixing bolt «A»;
undo the steering head nut «B»;
25
MOTO GUZZI • Quota 1100 ES • Owner’s Manual
turn the adjuster nut «C» to take up any play.
When play has been adjusted tighten the nut «B» and the steering head fixing bolt «A».

WEBER injectionignition system
(I.A.W. 15M)
In the Weber injection-ignition system type “alfa/N” the engine speed and the throttle
position are used to measure the quantity of sucked air; when the quantity of air is known,
measure the fuel quantity in relation with the desired strength. Other sensors in the system
allow to adjust the main operation, on particular condition. Moreover, the engine speed and
the throttle angle allow to calculate the optimal ignition advance on every operation
condition. The quantity of air sucked from each cylinder per cycle, depends on the air
density in the suction manifold, on the single displacement and on the volume efficiency.
The volume efficiency is experimentally calculated on the whole operation field of the motor
(rpm and engine load) and is stored in the electronic unit. The control of the injectors, each
cylinder, is “time sequenced”, i.e. the two injectors are controlled on the basis of the suction
sequence, while the delivery can already begin, for each cylinder, from the expansion phase
until the suction phase, already begun. The timing for the initial delivery is contained in the
electronic unit.
Static inductive-discharge ignition with dwell control provided by the power module (in-built
in the electronic box) and ignition advance mapping stored in the electronic box. The coils
receive the control inputs from the I.A.W. 15M unit (that calculates the ignition advance) via
the power modules.
Description of the system
Fuel circuit
The fuel is injected along the suction pipe of every cylinder, in the upper side of the suction
valve.
It includes: tank, pump, filter, pressure adjuster, electroinjectors.
Sucked air circuit
The circuit includes: air filter, suction pipe, floated casing.
Downstream the throttle valve is installed the plug for the pressure adjuster.
The potentiometer for the throttle position is assembled on the throttle shaft.
The max pressure sensor (built into the unit) and the air temperature sensor are installed
upstream from the throttle valve.
Control circuit
With this circuit, the electronic unit detects the engine conditions and the performance of
the fuel exhaust and the ignition advance.
37
MOTO GUZZI • Quota 1100 ES • Owner’s Manual
It includes: battery, ignition switch, two relays, electronic unit with built-in max pressure
sensor, ignition unit, air temperature sensor, throttle position potentiometer, two injectors,
oil temperature sensor, injection timing/RPM sensor.
Operation phases
Normal operation
When the engine is in standard thermic conditions, the 15M I.A.W. unit calculates the
phase, the injection time, the ignition advance, only by interpolation on the corresponding
stored presettings, according to rpm and throttle position.
The resulting amount of fuel is delivered to the two cylinders with two subsequent
injections.
The count of the initial delivery moment, for each cylinder, is made by means of a
presetting that depends on the number of revolutions.
Starting phase
When the ignition switch is in operation, the 15M I.A.W. unit feeds the fuel pump for few
time and detects the throttle angle and the temperature of the engine.
After starting the engine, the unit receives the revolution and phase signals, which allow it
to control the injection and the ignition.
To make the starting phase easy, an enrichment of the main quantity, upon the oil
temperature, is performed.
After the starting phase, the unit begins the check of the advance.
Acceleration operation
During acceleration, the system increases the delivered fuel quantity, in order to obtain the
best way of guide.
This condition is detected when the throttle angle variation reaches appreciable values, the
enrichment factor is determined upon the oil and air temperatures.
WARNING!
In order not to cause damages to the electronic ignition system, follow the
precautions hereunder:
in case of battery removal or refitting, be sure that the ignition switch is in
position OFF «
»;
do not disconnect the battery with engine on;
be sure of the perfect efficiency of earth cables of electronic boxes;
do not electric weld on the vehicle;
do not use other electric devices for starting;
38
MOTO GUZZI • Quota 1100 ES • Owner’s Manual
to avoid either malfunctioning or inefficiencies of the ignition system, the
