Gilera engine number

Good evening, it has been some time since I last visited here. There is currently on UK Ebay, a Gilera described as a 150 Rossa Extra, but I thought that the Rossa Extra was always a 175. The engine number on the bike is : 18960**
Can anyone tell me what age and cc this is ?
Regards, Tony.

Re: Powerdynamo

Hi, sorry it has taken so long for me to reply ! I am glad yours is working. Mine does, but not the lights, and it has cost a lot of money !

Gilera 150 head gasket.

Hi all, the Gilera 150 Sport I have been working on is nearly finished, though I do still have electrical problems! However, the purpose of this post is to ask about the head gasket. I used a new one, the head and barrel seemed quite flat, and I tightened down the head tight. But, after running the ...

Re: Gilera 150 Gran Turismo

Hi, I made the mistake of sending my generator to be re-magnetized, however, these types hold only a residual magnetism and are not supposed to be strongly magnetized ! I paid the 'expert' who told me he could not do it. I then found a man in USA who told me you do not need to re-magnetize. I have n...

Re: Nordwest 350 water pump

Hi, yes, but not until November. I shall see if I can make one, if not, will have to wait.

Re: Nordwest 350 water pump

Unfortunately Joachim no-one has a pump anyway ! I think I will end up making one.
Cheers, Tony.

Nordwest 350 water pump

Hi all, does anyone have a usable water pump for a 350 Nordwest ? Mine has seized, and in trying to dismantle it, I destroyed the body !
Cheers, Tony.

Re: Powerdynamo

Hi Uli, no, the problem is not running, the bike starts and runs just fine ! It however does not charge, and the checks I have made on both the dynamo and the regulator suggest that they are both faulty. To rewind the dynamo would probably cost nearly as much as buying the PD kit ! I just wondered i...

Powerdynamo

Hello everybody, I am interested in knowing how many of you have fitted a Powerdynamo kit ? I think it may be an answer to the problems I have with the 150 sport. Getting a generator rewound is expensive, as is finding a replacement regulator unless I get a solid state one, so buying a kit that has ...

Re: Electric main switch

Hi, yes, the numbers are internationally recognised. My problem is I am not sure if that diagram you show, the one I am using, is correct for my switch. I think it is, but haven't yet found out whether my regulator is faulty, my generator, or both ! I have also come into some more information this e...

Re: Electric main switch

Hi Nozem, I am still tearing my hair out over this ! Are you able to tell me where the wires on the switch are coming from ? I do not have a reference for the colours, and I see the wires for the emergency switch seem to exit the headlamp shell. I would be interested in how they are wired, as I ment...

Re: Electric main switch

Hi Nozem, thank you very much, but I have rewired the bike myself without the standard wire colour, and have bypassed the emergency switch as it is faulty ! I have now got the bike running ok, (timing and battery condition were to blame), and using an old MZ regulator also, I have got the ignition w...
