I believe the CTEK automatic charger is one of the best on the market. I have the 3.6 Amp one.

When it comes to batteries, the capacity in Amp Hours is the most important  part. The CCA figure must be adequate, but not so important.
All batteries lose capacity over time, so the more AH you start with the longer it will usually last.

Newer AGM batteries require a charge rate of at least 2 Amps, many battery conditioners won't supply this.

Gents - thanks for the comments regarding the chargers. I will probably go for the CTEK equipment, my friend has one of these units which has given good service and was bought to replace his earlier OPTIMATE.
Best Regards - George.

Hello to All - I have another query this time regarding the carburettors on my V50 Guzzi. Having decided to fit new needles and atomisers I noted on the Dellorto parts drawing on the EUROCARB website that there are O rings and washers listed as fitments to the idling screw and slide adjusting screw. My manual however does not show or mention the O rings or washers and my machine does not have them fitted.
Best Regards - George

On the PHBH carbs (V50/3) the o ring sometimes gets left behind in the hole when the idle screw is removed. However V50/2 runs different carbs so not sure whether they are similar to the PHBHs, if they are fitted then they are important as they seal the adjusters and keep them air tight.

Hi Chris - thanks for the reply. I have a looked into an exploded diagram of the carbs and I think that the diagram of Eurocarb is not actually the VHB fitted to the Mark 2 (as you eluded to). From the parts diagrams that GUTSIBITS have sent me the carbs fitted to the Mark2 do not have the O rings and washers at the idle and slide screws. Thanks again - George.
