Unbelievable.... :eek:
The carbon fibre handguards, listed on the Aprilia website as Pegaso Factory accessories, DO NOT fit on the bike!!!!

The problem is the radial brake lever measures are different from the standard brake, therefore the right handguard can't be hooked up to the rearview mirror... :WTF:

I sent the handguards back to Aprilia and got my money back, but I am very disappointed :gunner:

Thanks for the warning because i was just about to order a set but i was also not sure if it will fit because of the radial break pump.
i found a set of universal hand guards with carbon look that cost 31 euro
so i think i will buy those.

I got mines on without problems.
Just followed the manual.
The right and left side assembly are different so maybe you got the parts mixed. Or maybe they just sold you a foulty product...

Anjet,
do you have the standard Pegaso, or the Factory one?
Because they sent me the standard handguards...

Can you (or anyone) provide more details on alternate handguards for the Pegaso? Where did you see the carbon look ones?

Thanks

I fitted BMW F650GS handguards to my Strada. Doddle to fit and only £37.00 (part no. 71607682222). Look like they were made for the Pegaso :)

Nice, but the right one won't fit on the factory because the radial pump has a different shape...

How did you get them to fit then? Did you have to change the bar ends?

Nothing needs changing, cutting or modifying Kev, they fit straight on as per the BMW instructions, and look as if they were made for the bike. Much cheaper than the Aprilia items and available from stock at most BMW dealers.

Four weeks on, I'm still waiting for my rear carrier from Aprilia, which I was told was in stock in Italy and would take 7 - 10 days. They say it's just the way it is in Italy, which is crap. I deal with companies in Italy, and have never had delivery problems from them, in fact they are easier to deal with than the people I deal with in the States.

I bought last week the BMW's ones, and while I haven't had time to fit them (I had an accident (http://blogs.gnome.org/view/rodrigo/2007/05/18/0) while coming back home after buying them), they look like they will fit perfectly. Paid 74 Ä for them, which is, more or less 50 pounds, so Joe, you're getting things quite cheap it seems.

Now, with my bike on the local Aprilia dealer, and waiting to be repaired, I hope the parts arrive soon enough. Although, at least here in Spain, after talking with some Aprilia owners from different parts of the country, it seems some dealers don't have the you-have-to-wait-months-for-every-aprilia-part problem, so I'm tending to think it is not Aprilia's fault after all, but the local dealers'. I had to wait for 4 months to get a new gear lever (fortunately I could still ride with the half I still had on my bike), while other people just have 7-10 days waiting time. And others, much luckier, live in places where the dealers have pieces in stock!!! :)

Sorry to hear about your accident, I hope you get well soon and your bike is soon mended. Seems I got a good deal on the handguards, I've checked the invoice and it doesn't show any discount, so don't know why they should be more expensive at other dealers.

Still, at least it was me that got the cheap ones :happy: :happy:

I got quoted £50.50 for the BMW handguards. Funny thing is, I saw an F650GS on a ferry parked next to me and discussed and measured these parts. I think they would be a perfect fit. Expensive though.

I'm mostly ok, and the damage on the bike, although still waiting for the mechanics' report, seems to not be too much. The crash broke the oil evacuation part, so it lost all the engine oil. Apart from that, it lost a piece on the chain (the tensor? sorry, don't know its name in English). So, it seems it's not too much, let's hope the mechanic doesn't find anything else broken.

Do the F650 handguards have an aluminium bar on the inside? Or are they only plastic?

Also do the Louis.de ones have an intrnal aluminium bar?

Thanks

The Aprilia has bar end weights fitted. On the above pictures they can be seen fitted between the handlebar grips and the hand gaurds.
I understnand that they are fitted to damp out vibration on teh handlebars.

Its my bike in the picture above. Basically, you remover the existing bar end weight bolt, place the handguard in place, and fit the BMW bolt and knobbly end bit. Works great. Really make a difference in the rain.

Bar end weights are definitely there to to 'damp' out vibrations - and they work quite well on the Peg. I know a lot of people who have changed their end weights for something smaller/more stylish, and ended up suffering from vibration. Leave them in place is my advice - if you must change/remove them, then stuff some lead up the end of the bars.

By the way, what colour are the BMW guards? Black or grey or ???

As far as I can gather, If you have a Boring Middleage Wan#er bike, you must cut the cable ties at fig 1. and then re-fit new cable ties when you have finished. Mine are still in the box unused.:funnypost

Didn't learn the first time, this is my 4th. Can't say I do the owners club, rallies, ride outs or forums though :).

Difficult to get passionate about them, but there are some things they just do well though.

Great bikes incredibly over engineered and often with no character. The latest bunch are brilliant although expensive. I test rode the F800S and found it went well but had not enough character compared to my Triumph. The naked agry robot bike look good too.

Hmmmm, not quite so sure about that, I've had my share of problems and the quality is definitely not was it was when I bought my original R80ST. Had 3 oil heads now, and still not totally convinced.

I just moved to a 07 Pegaso Trail from a 95 F650 which I bought a year ago at 44,000km. I had it for a year and and rode 22,000km. In that time I replaced steering head bearings, carb diaphragms, voltage regulator rectifier (and battery), rear suspension bearings and rear wheel bearings.

Some of these are wear items but the VRR, SHB and water pump are known problems.

Really enjoying the Pegaso, even though it is mid-winter here.

Mine are KTM ones. Fit is good. Not sure part numbers etc... as they were fitted by the dealer when I got the bike, they are both Aprilia and KTM dealer. Think they were £40.

The dealer i used was Inmoto, Croydon.

I've fitted the carbon ones to my Factory but you do need to fabricate a bracket as in this photo. BTW this is not my bike but another forum members. You also need to fabricate a lower bracket, I haven't because the carbon guards are ok without.

Hi Guys
They bother to make a Factory version and then make bits that donít fit it, brilliant. Surely people that buy the Factory must be the most likely candidates to buy goodies!
I was able to buy some Aprilia guards cheap, I could see that there would be a problem fitting the right one but I like a challenge.
I trimmed it to clear the lever and I did not use the bottom mounting bracket, the guard is very rigid so the bracket is not needed.
Looks OK I think.
You can cut carbon fibre easily with a junior hacksaw and it files nicely with a fine file.

I did the same. The KTM ones don't come up as high as I'd like but they good, are reasonably priced (£40) and as you've proved they do the business

Want £65 incl. UK postage. Excellent conditon with no scrapes and will come with new fasteners and fittings. Needs no mods to the bike and fitted in minutes.
