Gilera Fuoco 500 - 2009 /2010

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.

 

I'd be keen to have a short weekend trip on Fuoco as well. Do post up or PM us if you have a plan... or we can start planning one!

Sure! But I suggest after the monsoon season. It's kinda boring to get caught in the heavy rain during our ride.

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

I definitely need to go ADH!!

This evening while taking a bend across traffic light junction, the engine stalled by itself again! :pity: and I did a quick "I.A." and got it moving.

 

Will also get them to trouble shoot the front brakes. If both problems are indeed manufacturer's fault, it should be replaced FOC>

Coz weather's colder?

 

How about try parking your bike on wheels instead of main-stand to see if it is leaking to earth?

Here's something that I found in the manual:

 

Look for any leakage

1) Access the battery by removing its cover under the saddle.

2) Check that the battery does not show signs of losing fluid before checking the output voltage.

3) Turn the ignition key to position OFF, connect the terminals of the tester between the negative pole

(-) of the battery and the black cable and only then disconnect the black cable from the negative pole

(-) of the battery.

4) With ignition key still at OFF, the reading detected by the ammeter must be ≤ 0.5 mA.
