Re: New Saturno 500 IOM owner

I found the gear selector rod was bent and hitting the footrest support. It just needed rotating around and then worked fine. A short ride, but what a great handling bike!! The sightglass was a new one I got from Bob Wright. It seems to have some small cracks in. I was careful in doing it up, but ma...

New tires, bled brakes, rebuilt carb, changed oil and filter.Replaced cracked sightglass - still leaking a little. I took it for a s...

Re: New Saturno 500 IOM owner

I know there is a difference in the screen because I made the mistake of ordering one of those without checking :( If anyone would like a cheap one let me know. The IOM fairing is about 10mm longer and is shaped over the light. I would try and trim it if not for the length. Yes, Joachim I will try a...

Re: New Saturno 500 IOM owner

How many hours ride are you from Melbourne? Does anyone know where I might find a windshield for the above 500? It seems the IOM models have a different screen to the others with a cutout above the light, and is slightly longer. :( If I can't find one I will buy a generic one and cut to fit. Yes my ...

Re: New Saturno 500 IOM owner

Thanks Lambs for your comments. I have a workshop manual, and will go through that it more detail. I’m living in Tasmania. I have talked with the mechanic who will do the registration inspection. He has given me some things to check including chain guard, indicator width etc. The process here seems ...

New Saturno 500 IOM owner

Hi All, I live in Australia and have just bought a Saturno 500 IOM which was imported from Japan. It has only 70km on the clock. Something has fallen onto it in storage and it has a few cracked fairings and no windshield. There is some work to do before it goes for registration. I am planning on cha...
