Abstract: The $ {v_1}$-periodic homotopy groups $ v_1^{ - 1}{\pi _ {\ast} }(X;p)$ are computed explicitly for all pairs $ (X,p)$, where $ X$ is an exceptional Lie group whose integral homology has no $ p$-torsion. This yields new lower bounds for $ p$-exponents of actual homotopy groups of these spaces. Delicate calculations with the unstable Novikov spectral sequence are required in the proof.
