Gilera Fuoco 500 - 2009 /2010

After repairs at global motors by one of their experienced mechanics Ah boon, the bike is now fine and feels much better than before. I am not going back to the agent ever again. Scared the living daylights out of me when I thought I was going to crash when the front brake lever went 'pressureless'. Thinking of a Gelang Patah trip soon.

He's actually more to tuning Japanese and Italian fairing race bikes. Fuoco is like his new endeavour to expand his expertise.

water leaking is a problem that till now i dunno how to solve,only way is to park under shelter or cover ur bike.. tat's what i do..

After using back 21g rollers, i feel the bike slower and heavier.. lol.. maybe will change back to lighter ones (perhaps not 17g this time,trying other weights) again on my next belt change..

Heard from him he did a fuoco wic is being rear ended from a lady rider..

 

Yes. He has to strip many parts of the bike out. Very good technical exercise for him to gain the mastery of the bike. And he also has the fuoco workshop manual and all the specs for the bike. Global might as well take over the agentship. I feel more confident with him.

Was riding around 100 on the highway when started having intermittent power loss.Struggling to keep up to even 40 km/h when bike went slower and stalled.

Lucky thing it was very late and low traffic.Luckier still able to restart and reached home.

 

Went to ADH next day and problem diagnosed as faulty engine cut off switch.This and turn signal switch replaced for free but need to pay for new front brake pads.....Whaaaat new brake pads????????How is this possible with only 7K and mostly highway use in Singapore's almost flat road.

 

Answer:It's common for Fuoco and MP3's...Really??

Then the whole world must be having this problem. My brake pads are still OK after 15000km. Maybe yours are really worn off?

I hope whoever told you that is not trying to tell the world not to buy Fuoco and MP3.

Maybe you should consider changing the workshop doing the maintenance. Apparently days after getting the bike, there're zero problems to mine. Now I feel the bike significantly responsive whenever I throttle off. It always feel like stalling in the past. I am not sure about this and nothing against anyone here but it seems that bikes are prone to problems for those who return to the agent. Not enough holidays to expend so I am considering some short touring with this bike now. Confidence level returned.

Glad you got your ride up proper again! Thanks - will take GM into consideration when comes to servicing or repairs.

So how was the svc @ THN? I feel like stretching the EO change to 8,000KM instead of changing it at 5,000KM.

OK - mine happened like this last Thursday. I was snaking through vehicles to the front of traffic light. When I steer fully right to get across to another demarcation (road markings), the engine just stalled (cut-off) while it was still rolling. IA taken - depress brake slightly, ignition switch depressed - bike restarted and throttle off.

 

It was scary, but not the first time.

 

Thing is - you cannot tell when that happens!! I was taking a gentle bend at one time and same symptom happened!

 

Strangely - it is does not happen often. Should I bring to ADH to get the switches changed or just leave it (since it seldom occurs + bike restarts easily)

aiyah - that Sunday we did not check the brake-pads! But both Chubb and my Fuoco front braking bike-power suck-big-time! William's f/brake power is :thumb: - like sports bike!

 

Chubb - did you get THN to check your f/brake bite-power problem?
