    Hi all

    I thought I'd start the thread in response to shrineclown's query. Here's my 1997 Pegaso 3

    One of my riding buddies has a Pegaso (Peggy Sue) - the one with the Rotax engine. He's presently working through replacing the standard carbs with items from a Suzuki GSX750R, as the standard carbs are (apparently) crap. The Suzuki items, while externally identical to the originals, have different internals and are much more adjustable. I'll try and get him to sign up to this site and post more detail.

    Hey Guys im a bit late to the party but

    If you want to check out some Pegaso's take a look at

    www.borneobikingadventures.com

    The website is just about to be updated with new pics as most of the bikes shown have been sold and replaced with a fleet of 6 brand new Pegaso Strada Trails. Such a big improvment over the older versions.
    you will se pics of a big 1100 Vtwin Honda that you would be amased at where they take it just for the laugh!!
    In my opinion also much better than F650GS as well.

    Im lucky enough to ride with these guys quite often (im in a couple of the pics!) and they are great guys the main man is ex british motocross champion Bryan Wade who knows a thing or two about offroad riding!!

    Hope you like

    Ben

    Further to my post about the carbs on the Pegaso, the owner corrected me as follows:
    I wrote "One of my riding buddies has a Pegaso (Peggy Sue) - the one with the Rotax engine. He's presently working through replacing the standard carbs with items from a Suzuki GSX750R, as the standard carbs are (apparently) crap. The Suzuki items, while externally identical to the originals, have different internals and are much more adjustable."
    He came back to me with "Not quite. These are essentially the same carb but with a bigger hole down the centre. from 33 to 36mm. Just as adjustable than the original.
    ie can replace main jet, can adjust needle height and pilot mixture and idle.
    can not replace pilot jets.. Will give you full report when complete."

    Currently he has installed an O2 sensor in the pipe and using that to refine the jetting.

    More news as it comes to hand...
