Thanks to Neil Dilly who posted this information on the Yahoo! Loopframe_Guzzi news group. In Neill's own words:
You might remember I mentioned changing to a 1 down 4 up pattern. This is what we ended up with, modified gear shaft at top of pic.
The gear change shaft has new bushes at both ends, so with the rose/heim joints at each end, hopefully that's taken care of the sloppage!
