    Finnish Novecento

    Hello from Finland.

    Got myself an Benelli this fall.
    Here are previous threads of this bike:
    https://www.benelliforum.com/forum/b...y-trouble.html
    https://www.benelliforum.com/forum/b...y-trouble.html

    When I got the bike it didn't ride as it should, streering was sticky and it runs terrible rich and judders when I opened gas in low rpm.

    First suspension:
    Front (and rear) tire pressure was 1.5 bar and the front end was too low. and free sag too low. And no Rebound damping at all. Rear sag was way too much and no rebound damping.
    First serviced both front and rear suspension, set free sag and bike balance. (raised front end). Bike started too feel like it should and it started to turn. More setup next summer when I got it to racetrack.


    Engine managment:
    Terrible rich especially on low rpm. Fuel consumption 10l/100km
    When opened gas on low rpm I think something is broken or soon going to be. Idont know how to say it in english but it trembles and judders . Over 5500 it runs smoother.
    The bike was suffocating on gas! And it has wrong ignition map!

    Totally changed both ignition and fuel maps. No it runs smooth in all situations and fuel consumption is 6.5-7.5l/100km
    More dynotime next summer.

    But much more other things to do in thr winter time.


    Previous owners would be amazed how Nelli runs and drives now.
