Not the belt!

Took the ... plastics off again. Not the belt See photo http://img421.imageshack.us/img421/2091/knackeredpickuprc600c7zu.jpg I was in too much of a hurry and must have forgotten to replace the lower bolt holding the pickup on. Now pickup is mincemeat and the flywheel nibs look a bit worse for wear a...

Re colours

I have a black/pink Nordwest = OK colour , and a purple/white one = horrible colour I like the two-tone blue though. My other Nordwest has modified plastics/paint and is Ferrari red (like my RC600C!) Red is definately faster!!! http://www.gilera-bi4.it/coppermine/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=0&...

Hi Paul, A new UK club is a great idea. :lol: :lol: Have you seen that Pete Fisher, one of the founders of the Gilera Net, has just started a new UK gilera forum at: http://www.flarefox.com/gilera/gilera.htm. Might also be a good place to inform other Gileristi. Also as you can see from this he is u...

Waterpump

I tried to fit a new waterpump to my RC600C as the old one was making a horrible squeaking noise.( I bought it 'new' from David Champion who used to run the English Gilera Network that seems to have died! He still has a Saturno though!!) Anyway it wont spin freely and seems to hit the metal part beh...

Saturno air filter

Help! My air filter has disintegrated - i think it was probably the original! Bob Wright ( the UK spares man ) does not have any but is thinking of having some made.
Anybody know if Hahne-Power or Heim-Racing sell them? - I could not see them on either website.
Thanks

Re: 125cc > 168cc tuning kit by Malossi

Gileramad suggested that there were no kits for the newer engines (SP02/Crono/CX/etc.). I have just added a 1993 2500km unmarked GFR to my collection. Looking around the web I found this page where a guy has used a 160 Polini kit to get 40cv and speeds of 200km/hr from his GFR. Have a look at his pa...

Hi, Like SeanC I responded to gileramad's invitation. This english forum is a great idea although i have often tried to read the german version! Maybe I am madder than he is: I have an RC600C, a 350 Nordwest, a 600 Nordwest, a 500 Saturno, a 50RS Trial in bits, and a 180 Runner. (Oh yes and a Triump...
