Default Ipotesi Issues

Im "restoring" The Ipotesi. Meaning Im cleaning it up all nice, painting the fairing and fixing all the hideous east coast corrosion on the bike. Original paint and all that good stuff but all the ugly ugly rust is going away.

A few things I do need help with are....

I am in desperate need of new rubbers for the gauges. The old ones are super dry rotted, and the one pair on ebay sold for almost 180 dollars.

I also cannot get the ignition out of the dash. I took out the retaining screw from the front but it will NOT come out and it already looks like someone pried at it so I dont want to mess it up anymore than it already is. I know Rob forgot how... But maybe Dorian has some ideas.

Hi Alex.

It has been a very long time since i have had an Ipotesi ign lock out. The memory is not so good these days i'm affraid!

I think that there is a little pin you have to push in to be able to lift the whole barrell out of the holder. I think you need the key in for this to work and iirc the pin is located at the base of the unit (best to do with dash removed). I will double check with someone who can remember better than i.

Re instrument rubbers. These are incredibly expensive and come from Ariete. The UK club was due to get some more in but i don't know if this has happened yet. If you can find an Ariete dealler in the USA they should be able to help, the part # is 02998 and they are the same for Speedo and Tacho. They are very slightly different to the originals but you wouldn't notice if i didn't point it out.

If you cant find any in the USA try Carrot Cycles in the UK as they are Ariete agents and very helpful www.carrotcycles.co.uk

Hope this helps.

Dorian.

Hey Alex, Dorian's pretty tall but he's not THAT big! -

Thanks Giovanni, i thought that was correct but it's been a long time! BTW have a great time in the USA, i wish i could get my Sfida over but the cost is a bit too high!

There ya go Alex, told you they were expensive! I think we sold them for about 50 ish in the UK last time we had some, but the rubber stuff is shooting up in price all the time.

All the best.

Dorian.

Yes I do everything on the iPhone because I'm always working so I have a lot of fun with autocorrect.
Thank you for the help Giovanni. I have been struggling with this for a while now.
I always seem to like the expensive, hard to find things so I should be used to the prices by now.

Sorry Alex, only just seen this.

The best thing to do is remove the top yoke so you can see what your doing.

Turn it over and you should see a small hole (obvious once you have seen it) in the side of the igniton barrel. I think you have to push something suitable into this hole which will release in a small pin (i think it's sprung loaded) and this will allow the whole barrel to slide upward out of it's holder.

BTW, they sometimes stick and a bit of WD40 or similar might help first.

I'm afraid i don't have one here or i would take a picture for you, maybe someone else can help with that.

Cheers.

Dorian.
