October Corsaro Section Meet

Apologies for the short notice, however time has run away with me.

Due to the weather (storm Alex) and the rule of six it would not be a good idea for the October Corsaro Section meet to officially go ahead. Hopefully weather and restrictions will ease for next month.

Re: Bike won't start - Sorted now

The Corsaro was fitted with an MF lead acid battery, the ZZ has a lithium battery. Yes they do require different chargers as I believe the charging rates are different. I did find that you need a healthy battery to start the bike, it seems to take a lot of charge to do so. As for the solenoid, one a...

Re: Carb balance

Did mine last week.I used 220mL of 15Wt oil per leg in my 83 K1 as usual. Interestingly one leg produced lovely clean oil and the other produced a filthy grim looking liquid. I run gaiters on the stanchions. Must be something degrading I guess. Speaking of filthy looking grim liquid a bar down the ...

When you say "briefly" are you talking a flash, seconds or minutes?

Re: Corsaro section , February meet.

From 12pm, most people get there between 12 and half-past. Occasionally a straggler or two may be a bit later (I've been known to turn up nearer 1pm). People head off between 2 and 3 so if you are planning on arriving late it would be worth bearing that in mind.

Corsaro Section November Meeting

*******CANCELLED*******
Due to the forecasts of gales and generally s**t weather all round, the November meeting has been cancelled. Floyd has contacted most regulars via text, but if anyone was thinking about turning up, you may be on your own.

Re: Cosaro ZZ

Hi Greg Yes I have ridden a ZZ, in fact I own one. I have also in the past owned a Corsaro 1200 and a Veloce so feel qualified to comment. The engine is basically the same however does have a different fuelling map, still pulls strongly but more frugal on the juice. Combined with a larger tank sees ...

Productive Day

Well that was a productive day. Replaced rear rocker cover gasket, I thought I had a bit of a leak but the old gasket still looked in good condition. Will have to wait and see if the leak is cured. Whilst I was at it, an oil change and cleaned the filter. Checked condition of air filters, filthy so ...

Re: Carb Mixture Screw

Thanks to everyone for their advice and Paul's great YouTube films. I have replaced the o-rings on both the mixture screws and throttle stops and upped idle speed to between 1600 and 1900 and it's no longer stalling. Once I've given it a good run I'll readjust and see what happens, now I know what I...
