Red dust ? Whatever do you mean ?

Came around a corner on the Gibb River Road and was met by this site of my buddy Yngve... he got a flat on the front from a buried rock in this bulldust hole/ stretch

What's the widest ROAD tire anyone's fitted to a 19" front ?
Reckon a 150 will fit the rear ? I've run 140 Metz Sahara without any problems.

What size front did the Pegaso use, 19 or 21 ?
Is it the same hub as ours ?
(Looks very similar, but I thought I'd check if anyone knew for sure)

Interesting question there re the Pegaso, I have looked at their front end recently and it seems to me the front spoked wheels are identical to the GS, there were two variations used 19 and 21" and axle is 17mm

The other interesting thing is it seems the early model upper yokes have a central mounted ignition switch/steering lock. The USD version will accept WP 4357 tubes as per what the F800/650X guys are doing (always get confused which of them)

Hoping to get some decent measurements off a Pegaso to confirm what I saw in pic's

Yeah, I'm looking to add a set of communting wheels that I'll lace with Michelin Pilot Road 3. Just got a F650GS 17" rear wheel delivered today and am looking for 19" fronts. When coming over a Pegaso front that also mentions the F650 I checked Pegaso rears (dumb as I am....) and they are under half price of BMW wheels....

Would these fit ? Also, I can't find any data on lenght etc so may not be the best fit, but if they use the same brakes and wheels the BMW Brembo's and wheels should just slide right in

IIRC, the Pegaso wheel are the same as the Funduro wheels, aren't they?

In this case, the front wheel will be usable (you can generally use the Funduro wheelset on the GS, but you need to modify the sprocket carrier on the rear, will the front wheel whould be a bolt on solution) without any hassle.

Again, Touratech springs to mind. They used Funduro Hubs for their Dakar bikes and on rare occasions even for customer bikes.

Looks like they use the same brake discs, so since the bolt holes are the same I'd guess the hubs are the same as well..... but I thought our bikes had 320mm front brakes

The Pegaso front disc is 300 mm as per the GS, mounting holes etc are the same, bolt heads are recessed though
Caliper is the same Brembo as the GS withe the same mount. I have an ebay pic showing the part No etc

The front forks you linked to should slide in but dependant on sub model they came from may be only 140 mm travel

On the rear it looks like there are variations between year models with the later Pegaso swapping sides for chain drive when they moved to the Yamaha engine. It looks like there are differences in the Cush Drive on the earlier Pegaso so it would mean a Sprocket holed and wheel change if it was possible. This looks a bit more iffy than the front

Sidestand Install ??

I removed the sidestand to clean it and grease the bushing. It felt tight like it was corroded, so I thought a little cleaning might help.

I am trying like heck to put it back on without success. There is washer in there and it is an extremely tight fit. I can't get it to go back on no matter what angle or approach I try.

Any tricks or advice? Do I dare try and widen it. It seems pretty loose already.


I may have to install without the washer and ride it to my local bmw dealer and have them do it. Or maybe while it is off, I should take it to a welder and have the side stand extended.

Sounds like the washer is in the wrong place, check the fiche, normally needs a shim to stop the slop.
