Relaxed comfortable reliable economic bike with good weather protection and ABS (essential). Able to deliver on busy motorway and through the jungle of London traffic. I'm not bothered if some sportsbiker can go round a bend 10 milliseconds faster than me, good luck to him, but I do want to be able to assert authority if some cage-bound boy racer starts messing about. I run up 30k miles a year and expect my machine to get to 100k miles without real problem. I do my own maintenance & minor fixes are not an issue. So, knowing what you know about your pagaso would you buy the pasago if you were me? I don't expect the answer is black and white but would value your opinion - you guys seem like a pragmatic bunch, realistic about your ride... not like some other forums I could mention.,Asking that question here is a bit like asking the pope if you should become a catholic..... Do you plan to ride it in Winter on the UK's salt encrusted roads. If so, and unless you wash it every day, it will look very shabby, very quickly. This is true of many bikes, but I think the pagaso is not good in this respect. The previous owner of mine took it through one winter - its got more corrosion that I think is accepatble. ,,,

Machine will drain but not spin machine is 25 yrs old- should I fix or buy new one and if I buy what do you reccommend?

I would have someone come look at it and give you their opinion. But if you really want a new one, it depends on what you are looking to buy. Here are a few criteria I tell my customers when looking for new. 1. Stick with a name you have grown up with (i.e. Maytag, GE and Whirlpool) 2. Make sure you can get reliable warranty and after warranty care. Also part availabilty at local parts places. You don't want to be with out a washer for 6 weeks would you ? 3. Don't let a salesman sell you the product go in wanting to buy the product. 4. I always give my customers the option of calling me when out shopping so they get my honest opinion of a product. I do not sell them so I am a little more unbiased than salesman. So find you servicer you are very comfortable with and ask his opinion. This is where having a trusted and honest servicer that you constantly use comes in handy. Hope I answered your questions, if not post again and i'll try to answer.

Brown oil is leaking from the bottom of the washer

The only place oil can come from is the transmission. If you do not have a big leak, it may run a long time (read: maybe a year or more) before low oil level in the transmission causes major appliance damage, but it's time to start looking for a new washer. Many washers these days do not even use an oil filled transmission. Current GE machines do not, and the Whirlpool models comming soon don't either. If you can afford it, the front loading LG washers (which are direct drive, thus no transmission or clutch, and have a 10 year motor warranty) are the best, in my opinion.

Auto shop advosed that the eldorado's compter

I show that your car uses one sensor located in the exhaust crossover of the exhaust head pipes off the engine, here is the part number and prive, labor time just to change the sensor is 1/2 hour plus the diagnostic time to test the system and determine the sensor was the problem,
ACDELCO Part # AFS73 Price $74.00 so $650 is way hight in my opinion.

Looking for recommendations for an apartment size Fridge

Your asking for a personal opinion, so here is mine.
From a standpoint of decent to good performance, Ease of servicing, and lots of easy to access repair stations including the selling dealer, and in many areas factory service, I would recommend Whirlpool. They seem to use the "Keep it simple stupid" approach when designing and building their machines.
As well, as a side note, the "Roper" is nothing but a disguised Whirlpool found in many big box stores and is many times cheaper with the same features.
G.E and Hotpoint would be my second choice in a small simple machine. Like Whirlpool and Roper, the're really basically the same machine wth different names. Hotpoint in many cases coming in at a slightly lower price, but still a GE product.
Please, if you make the purchase, keep all paper work in a secure place. Taped to the back of the machine in a heavy envelope works.

Aprillia Pagaso efi stutter at 2 to 3000 rp. This causes jerky throttle response especially around town and I think adds to the high fuel usage.

Jerky fuel injection is a known problem on this model. You should be able to sort it with a PowerCommander, or get used to it - I was going to get one but after a couple thousand miles I harly notice it any more so didnt bother.

This may be a dumb question

Many factors go into the style of a bike.
Changing the exhaust is a major issue in regards to position of the current hardware and wiring. Designers at the time the bike is being developed determine position, size heat shielding etc. Local codes, restrictions and generally what sells today. Once the fabrication starts on a specific model it is rare that major changes like the exhaust system are allowed.

That is what after market exhaust pipes are for.
I for instance can't stand the one large big pipe.
Dual pipes on each side have a better sound and seem to balance the bike.
But that is only my opinion and everyone has one. :)

Keep in mind, There is no dumb question. Only the one not asked. :)
Have a great day!

Wind Buffeting ?

I am about 6 foot and I have no problems with wind buffeting on my pagaso Perhaps it is also depending on what helmet you use. I use a Nolan N101 which works fine for me.

Mounting a Green Light trigger on pagaso 650

be pointed UP instead of down ripe for being stolen etc... 2. On the lowest part underbelly. Given that my sump guard is thick metal I didn't think it would trip the trigger (plus you had to ride INTO the intersection if it was that far on your bike). 3. I ended up trying it INSIDE the left side grate (glued to the rubber backing). Trips most of the lights here (angled down AND forward is key), but seems to have begun to wander. Not sure if it's a glue/rubber backing issue, or if the engine heat warms it enough that it gets soft when riding?? Before I break out the Zip ties, I figured I'd see if anyone has come up with a better location or mounting method. (see pic) Ideas? They do offer a plastic box w/ziptie for $15+ shipping...,I gotta get me one of those...I had one on my ST1100 and it seemed to work at most lights. How about mounting it on the bottom of the aluminum plate with heavy duty velcro? If its not too heavy, I think it would hold. Just have to check it once in a while. I tried to get mine as low to the ground as possible. ,,,
