Nice Peg's from the states.

How is the Aprilia situation over there? I mean could you buy the full bike lineup and get sparesparts etc.?

Nice pics from both of you btw.

Have not seen any new version of the Pegaso, like the Strada, since the turn of the century.
My local dealer has Tuonos, Milles, and a Caponord or two in stock. As for parts, I just go to AF1 even though my dealer is 3 blocks away. (Better service!)

Hi all Pegaso riders!
I started a Pegaso thread,since this one is very old,but was asked by Petrolhead to merge with this thread to have more info about the horses.
So:
2000 Pegaso,about 47k km (on the actual odo there are only 3k since i smashed the old one agains a Renault Master),have had some reliability probs with it,but love the fun factor and the on and off-road manoeuvrability.
So,let us unite to the benefit of us all and the good functionality of our flying horses (how pathetic is that,ey?).

P.S. Has anyone had problems with the cooling system?I blew the head gasket because the thermostatic valve got stuck on "closed" position,but when the mechanic took it out,it was not closed...what else could it be?I'm gonna change the gasket and replace the valve,hopefully solving the problem...

Hi Gothmog! I think the head gaskets were all defective on the 2000 Pegs. I have not had a problem with mine though.

Hi everyone.

KlPegaso here. I started this thread just in January 2006. Never thought it would go this far....6th page!! and growing I hope.

I still have my 1997 Pegaso 3. Mileage now stands at 95K kms. So far no major problems. Added Hepco Becker engine guards and bigger GIVI side luggage recently. The Scottoiler is next. Still the best bike in the world to me as it's mine. .

Bye for now.

I met my Aprilia dealer last week.
If anyone here remembers, i owned a pegaso trail for 100km and returned it to shop after that, because it started leaking coolant etc. it took them 3 weeks NOT to find the fault.
so that was the MAIN reason for returning the bike.

So now i asked, did they FINALLY find the fault... They did. He was abit ashamed to tell me, but the coolant radiator cap was a little crooked. that was it they discovered it, when they switched radiators with another bike and the problem went from one bike to another. So closer look at the cap and here it was....

I guess this is good news for you who already own the Trail :)

Thumb PCIII fitted

I have finally got around to fitting the PCIII to my 2007 Peg Trail. I tried a couple of the existing 2006 maps and they certainly make a difference to power and rideability - it's like it should be! Funnily the map for the Arrow cans (which I have) does not work the best, but the map for the Leo Vince ones seems to make the most improvement. Probably because of the O2 sensor.

The Accellerator pump add-on is great!

I look forward to an 07 map and the info on the lambda removal. There is some info on some UK based Peg owners who are planning to have one fitted soon by Dynojet in the UK. http://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/f...splay.php?f=52

The Mitas EO9s seem to be lasting fairly well, and are SOOO much better in the dirt than the standard Scorpions, and they work OK on the tar as well. Will probably find out how they go on wet tar this afternoon, as it's now raining here.

Thanks - you'll like the Peg, and good luck with the repairs!

I'm in the UK, but at least that file gives me something to look at, cheers.
