For the intake tube is because without, you can not put in because it isn´t enought place and a little more long intake tube is good at high revolutions.

I use FCR 39 because it´s enought for 558 c.c but it cango I thing with 40. I think 41 it´s only for more c.c. or great headcilinder work... Well it´s my opinion.

About caliper, It´s great. The original disk it´s cast iron, a realli good brake disk, but with this caliper goes really well.

About only needs in circuit, I am not agree. In tracks is necesary, ok, but I used for roads before and it´s better have more brakes, I can say to you!!! Especially because you can break with ony one finger, and this it´s great wen you go fast.

About brakes, for me, ít´s alwais better too much than too less...

You can put double disk brakes if you change the weel, but less weght for suspension a giroscopic moment with less weight, so I prefere une great single brake than 2 normal brakes.

Well, It´s alwais my opinion.

But now I am fitting a 320 cast iron disk and a monoblock billet caliper with titanium pistons and cooler!!!

This bike are going not only get a divorce... It get destroyed my economy!!!

Hi Carlos,

I hope the Saturno activities add only joy and fun to your life. And it's more fun spending money on the bike than just loosing it at the stock exchange. Compared to Ducati Racing the costs for the Gilera are much lower and hopefully affordable.

Your pictures are really breathtaking. Thank you very much.

What kinds of brake pads are you using? I just switched to the PT radial brake pump. I agree with you that good brakes improve you abilities of going faster. I found out that I develop strong hand grip when under stress. So too strong breaks can be quite risky.

Please keep us up to date with your new fork.
Have a nice weekend!

Hello folks!

Here are two pictures of my 1976 and 1980 Gilera 50 Tourings. They were sold here in Sweden as Tourings with a lot of parts from the Trial. The -80 still has it´s original paint. looks exactly like the one I bought on x-mas eve 1983

I have done some "weight-compensation", you know one gets heavier over the years and I have put on some more powerful parts, they were sold here in a depressing ONE bhp version (30km/t) ........



Yeah, the "workshop" looks like a mess :D
