Re: 40mm Dellorto Float height

the tip is viton and whilst changing things is always better, the condition looks good.

I will stick to the Gilera manual although "Turn over the carburettor and let float rest on the needle's damper"
annoys me as there is more than one way to turn a carburettor :)

40mm Dellorto Float height

I have overhauled the carby from a Gilera 500 and found the float had let a lot of fuel thru overflow and into the cylinder. luckily i could hear it and removed sparkplug for safety. BUT!

TOP SPEED

The max speed of the Saturno be it 350 or 500 is 160km/ph I believe.

This seems to be an rpm limiter fitted to then electrical system.

Has anyone developed a 'black box' to de-restrict this or is there another solution?

thanks,

Sean

Custom Gilera Saturno 500 FCR IOM

Hi all Saturno lovers, here is one I have just finished off. I have had a few standard Gilera Saturno in the past and think the riding position is too severe for city and surrounds so have made a naked version.
