    Very interesting. Thanks for posting, Kev. This explains the Piaggio rep's rebuttal of my characterization of the problem (missing thrust washers), and syncs up more with the description that I got from the service manager who just replaced my V7ii engine (he described is as a "crankshaft problem" that Piaggio is aware of).

    Still wondering what you all think about the safety of running the 'factory fill' 10-50 Castrol as I noted above... safe for the first 600 miles, or should I dump it and replace with 10-60 for break-in? Does it matter?

    In your climate, 10-50 vs 10-60, no appreciable difference.

    Leave it alone.
