    Two pin connector


    I have just got a new Pegaso and in with the documentation is a small 2 pin plug with a resistor connected to it. Can anyone tell me what this is for and where it go's.

    Thanks in advance.

    It may be the spark advance resistor.

    The US-models have this installed at the factory. I would guess it makes more power when installed. Talk to your dealer.....we have never messed with this item. I only knew of this resistor after careful studying of the wiring diagram.

    The US-model wiring diagram has it installed near the CDI box with a connector that has a blue and a green/white wire. The physical location of this connector should be under the tank/seat area.

    Re two pin connecter


    Found it! just above the battery. No part Number.
    It just joins the green/white and blue wires together
    with a single strand. No resistance value given.

    This could be an instant and very cheap power
    gain. Any futher information very welcome.

    Thanks

    Resistor


    When I bought my pegaso -98 the dealer handed over this connector. He said I could just throw it away. It was there just to pass the noise regulations. The dealer then replaces it with another resistor.This sound strange but is very common for a lot of bikes, according to my dealer. The one mounted has clear coating and 10k resistance, the original has black coating and 4.6k. According to some postings on a German board the 4.6k sets timing to 19deg and 10k to 17deg. I assume this is at idle but I think the change is very small. 5deg advance keys are common for sportsbikes. Well I have tried both resistors and the change is not big. With 4.6k the low rpm responce is softer but actually I think it ran better/smoother at high rpm. It should be possible to change the timing with different resistors, anyone want to try it out??

    Resistor


    Thanks Jonas,

    That explains it! But please tell which you kept,
    10k or 4.6k? My Peg has the 4.6, and like you
    said goes really well top end but is slightly lumpy
    down low.

    Regards, bill

    2-pin


    I use the 10k resistor. It has a more direct throttle response at low rpm but the lumpiness is there.
    Actually the softer response with the 4.6k reduces chain-snatch but the acceleration is slower.
