Re: Forcella Italia Endurance für Saturno

Felix, yes my Saturno 500 which was imported into Australia from Japan had Ciriani front forks which looked exactly the same as your F1 endurance forks. They had labels on the lower part which were very faded and nearly impossible to read. Adjustments at the top and at the bottom. Regards Leo PS I h...

Re: Saturno Owners in Australia

Dear HP, I see on a lot of photos of Gilera Saturno bikes , none of them have Ciriani front forks. My bike has, were they a later add-on or what? They have the quick release mechanisms to drop the front wheel with the axle out in one piece. Love to know the story regards Leo PS also have adjustment ...

Re: Saturno Owners in Australia

Dear HP, Joachim, and anyone else. I am planning on taking the kick starter out of the Gilera Saturno 500. I can't remember where but I saw someone in a video giving the name of a screw to blank the exit off. Does anyone know? Or does anyone have the necessary for sale? Thank you leo

Re: Saturno Owners in Australia

Dear Joachim, thank you for your reply. Do I just separate the gear from the clutch carefully with a screwdriver? Is there any reason to check on the kickstart while I have the bike in this situation? And also the decompression mechanism? There is a fairly good YouTube video on the kickstart which I...

Re: Saturno Owners in Australia

Dear HP, I finally got the water pump fixed by the local Ducati dealer. I haven't really had a chance to test it out because when I put everything back together again I find that the starter motor sometimes doesn't engage the engine to turn it over and fire it up. I don't know if it's coincidental o...

Re: Saturno Owners in Australia

dear HP, well long story short. The people who supply the bearings etc messed around for so long that I got the water pump back from them. I took it to the Ducati specialist Byron Bay and he said he could fix it, and he did. Replace the bearings, seals were still good. God willing, job done. Thanks ...

Re: Saturno Owners in Australia

Dear HP, thank you very much for the translation and photographs. I took the whole lot to the company that supply the bearings and seals and they said that it would be no problem to do the job. I can only hope that it turns out well. I wonder, if you are familiar with or know anything about the deco...
