well, i know where the coolant came out from, from the same tube it is supposed to come out from, when it is overfilled. but i suspect it gets extra air from somewhere. too much pressure in coolant system.

the fault had to be in from factory already, guess they do not test engines after assembling.

if they find out what happened, i'll let you know.

by the way, i lied, i have a few pictures, it is from the beginning of the trip, just before i had this problem: http://album.piipz.com/thumbnails.php?album=35

hope i'll be able to make a new trip and get better photos next time ;)

btw, i think the last thing the trail needs is a powercommander. whatever you gain from the powercommander, you probably won't feel it.

if not talking about my little coolant problem (still unsolved), then the trail is the best thing i've ridden yet, it's ease of manouverability, weight, seat comfort etc. it's just perfect. the minarelli engine is supposed to be bomb-proof. lot's of my friends now ride Trail's and they just replace the oil every 10k km's.

Laugh All Mine

I picked up my brand new pegaso trail last saturday and there is not a thing wrong with it except I can't ride it all day. Damn this restricted license of mine.

I think you'll find that most people who have fitted power commanders to their Pegaso Trail's and Strada's have done so to try and eliminate the mid range flat spot caused by the fuel injection settings, rather than to find extra power.

I'd certainly notice the lack of hesitancy on mine.

Exactly what I mean. I didnt want to fit it for the extra power, but to gain a nice and smooth mid range power. I find the injection settings very bad as a matter of fact.

BTW: Made my first wheelie today... Its was quite okay. Manage the wheelie by the throttle, which I didnt thought I could

Ok you made your point. I agree.

By the way. The first 200km ~120Miles I got from this bike was the last. Dealer is still struggling with this Trail. I gave up on it today. Called the dealer and they gave me my money back 2 hours after the phonecall

I'll still be hanging around the thumper threads, after a small break i'll be riding this instead:

Question 2007 Pegaso Trail Bashplate/sumpguard

Does anyone know if there is an alloy/aluminium bashplate/sumguard made anywhere available for the current model Peg Trail?

I could get a copy (sort of)of the original plastic one made up by a metal fabricator, but thought I would ask the question before going that route.

Comments and suggestions welcomed.

Cheers
Graham

You could have engine shield/protector for the Trail:
www.offtheroad.de (Choose the Yam XT660 for metal version)

As you all could see down below, the Peg is actually ready for some hard workout. I made 4500km on the adventureous Iceland this summer!

As the frame is different, I don't believe the Yam XT guard will fit the Pegaso without modification.

I been told that the engine "mounts" should be the same, and that means it should be useable. The Piaggio engine is 99% the same. Only difference is the Yamaha indgraved logo instead of the Aprilia.

To be sure, choose the carbon one, or ask Offtheroad.

Bonus info: As you could see, I have used my Peg for offroad, and the engine shield been hit many times. Absolute no problem at all. The only "beneath the bike" problem was when a stone hit the sidestand "mount", when I was crossing a glacier lake.

The Pegaso engine is manufactured by the Yamaha owned Minarelli factory in Italy and is the same as the XT660. Yes - the engine mounts are the same, but sump guards are generally frame mounted, and so the mounting hardware is probably different. Additionally, the exhaust front pipes are under the engine on the XT and are higher on the Pegaso.

It's worth checking before spending the money.

I've seen a Trail owner fit a Givi XT660 engine guard to his but needed to be modified for the top mounting point plus neede a small cutout in the sump guard - seems relatively straight forward and looks good!
