I've been lurking on this forum for a couple of months, after buying a 2000 model Pegaso Cube 650. I'm a senior citizen (maybe as old as bikeral) and look forward to learning more about my Peg. I live in North Carolina in the USA.
When I bought the Peg (at a reduced price due to carb problems) it had been sitting for awhile and wouldn't idle without the choke full on.
Pulled the carbs, cleaned thoroughly, re-installed, put in fresh gas and when I hit the starter button, blew the 15 amp fuse. Replaced the fuse to see exactly when it was happening and this time it blew the fuse soon as I turned on the switch. I've read Dakar's post on buring up the wiring and am in the process of tracking down the short. (been too cold to fool with it recently and I have other bikes I can ride).
Look forward to reading more posts from forum members.
