Mounting a Green Light trigger on pagaso 650

Green light Motorcycle trigger I purchased the High Power model due to the elevated height of our pagaso 650 bikes. After reading the instructions wasn't certain of the best way to mount it! They suggest... 1. Lower Fork leg - would get knocked off

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. ,,,

Adjust headlight on harley ultra classic


Hi Larry, the correct procedure for adjusting a head light is as follows:
1. Verify correct tire inflation.
2. Place motorcycle on a level floor or pavement in an area with minimal light.
3. Point the front of the motorcycle towards a screen or wall witch is 25 feet from the axle of the front wheel.
4. Draw a horizontal line that is exactly the same height above the floor as the floor is to the center of the head light.
5. Have a person whose weight is roughly the same as that of the principal rider sit on the motorcycle seat. The weight of the rider will compress the suspension slightly.
6. Stand the motorcycle upright with both tires resting on the floor and with the front wheel held in straight alignment pointing forward.
7. Turn the Ignition/Light Key Switch to Ignition. Set the Light Switch on the left handlebar to High Beam.
8. Check the light beam for proper height alignment. The center of the main beam of light should be even with the horizontal line on the screen or wall.
9. Check the light beam for proper lateral alignment. The main beam of light should directed straight ahead i.e. equal area of light to the right and left of center.
10. The headlamp adjustment can be performed without removing the chrome ring. If the headlamp alignment requires adjustment use slots in the headlamp chrome ring to insert phillips screw driver between headlamp housing and rubber gasket. Turn the vertical adjustment screw as necessary to align the headlamp vertically. Turn the horizontal adjustment screw to adjust the headlamp horizontally. Good luck.

Fuel taps or petcocks can be purchased second-hand extremely cheaply from motorcycle wreckers, dismantlers or salvage yards.

Either take your old one with you or take an aluminium foil impression from the tank petcock mounting area. (bolt spacing and o-ring size etc.)

Ask for same or similar model at first to guage availability. Just be aware of the height difference between fuel on and reserve inlet stems.

Cheers.

6v lightbulbs


the tail and indicator bulbs should be available at larger auto electrical supplies, there is a very slight possibility they can get the headlight bulb.
But the head light will be a little bit rarer and probably yamaha only as they have those three little mounting holes. The wreckers may have them, but last time i asked for a part for my it400 they laughed at me.

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.

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.

Pagaso 650


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. ,,,
