Gas Gas 280 Pampera maintenance

I am totally new to the maintenance of my bike, my ex hubby used to do it for me. I know the air filter and all of that, but how much coolant do I put in the water cooler?

    someone else told me a 50/50 mix...but you think 2/3rds or as you say there is a fill line and I fill the coolant then add the water? I know total girl about this, but I can change the filter, and oil, the thermostatic coupler so not too bad. LOL

    the manual you sent isn't for a Pampera 280. I do have the Pampera 280 manual from Gas Gas USA, but it doesn't give me the fill levels or anything.

  • dirtbikinmom Jan 29, 2009

    BTW I did find the manual and it does say 50/50 mixture with distilled, just didn't know how much to put in...I will check the bike out when I get home tonight to find a fill line. Thanks both of you for all of your assistance.

    The mixture is 50/50 he was saying only fill it 2/3rd of the way full.(which is incorrect)I sent the manual so you wouldn't have to guess at it.

Changed rear brake line from the reservoir to the ABS unit (hole in line from rubbing against clutch cable) on '08 HD Electra Glide. Installed new line. Bled the unit, have brakes, but when hard braking...

ABS units are tricky things, unless you know what you are doing your best bet is to leave it to the professionals. Yes you'll have to take it to your bike shop to have them bleed it correctly now.

Back break not working wen u push it down

Keep on bleeding until all air bubbles goes out but never-never let your brake fluid reservoir empty, as you bleed the brake, fill the reservoir immediatel to full level. Do you know how to bleed properly? Make sure the engine and key is is off position. Pump the foot brake 6 or 7 times until it becomes hard, keep pedal down, open brake nipple relase fluid as soon it stop spurting, close tight and repeat process until all air bubbles are out from system, fill brake fluid reservoir. As the bike is on centre stand,hand turn the back wheel and press foot brake it should stop it from turning which means it is now working properly. Good enough advise?

Gear Box Oil Spec

Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands of oil. Husky is a different breed. Today's bikes use the 10w40.

Self oiling air filter

great bike but it pisses oil into the air box. Ends up with the luxury of a self oiling chain and a huge mess on the side of the bike. This has been happening since new. Am I putting too much oil in the tank should I only check oil when hot to allow for expansion or is this one of those crappy little problems with this motor that I will just have to live with?aways check oil when it warm and don't overfill it. make sure the air filter stays clean. if the crank's vented to the air box a dirty air filter will allow the crank oil to be pulled into the airbox.,,
