Re: Saturno 500 Wiring Anomoly?

On the face of it, It seems to be Wired/Weird Joachim though there are no obvious additions to the harness etc. The #2 (redundant) fuse appears to be connected to the switched side of the ignition switch circuit. Does your Bike (other Saturno's) have the 2 x fuse carrier and the fuse on the regulato...

Saturno Oil - Synthetic v Semi-synthetic?

Hi Last engine oil change I opted for full synthetic oil 5W/40 I Since read (< 1000 km on) in the Gilera Owners manual that full synthetic might lead to starter clutch slip issues because of its resistance to break-down. If I am a little skeptical about the full synthetic/starter clutch issue, I wou...

Re: Saturno Bialbero Mid range rattle

Thanks HP I have been considering limiting the axial float in a similar way to how you describe. There appears to be a small amount or radial clearance (though have not measured as I have misplaced my feeler gauges!) and anyway there would need to be a small amount though the manual does not specify...

Re: Saturno Bialbero Mid range rattle

Joachim, Hi, I You stated above " Another thing which is not very common is the noise of the full floater front brake disc" I just noticed the front disc rattle due to 'loose' fit/clearance on the 12 x 'barrel' mounting fasteners (looks like circlip held to the hub mounted fixed disc) - the fastenin...

Re: Saturno Bialbero Mid range rattle

Thanks Garagien

Re: Saturno Bialbero Mid range rattle

Thanks everyone for the input, some useful info here - I would have responded earlier but was waiting for confirmation that the post had been accepted and it never came - did it get sent or end up in the spammer? The rattle is sorted and not what I expected or what I could have envisaged - It turned...
