Benelli 500 Ouattro

I’m writing Italy and I only want to say about my 500-Quattro (first of 1975, with 4 separates manifolds and mufflers, drum on front wheel and 38 m/m diameter front fork). Actually it has 85,000 km on the clock, and I’m owner since 1985.

I used it often for long in couple and full load of (i.e. from Turin to I never had any serious mechanical apart from some punctures and a final drive opened by a defective linkage they all are independent from the All the the engine parts are original cilinder block, head and camshaft and drivetrain, mainshaft, clutch and complete gearbox).

1 cilinder smokes a little on accelerations, and ignition requires gap adjustment every 3 or 4000 km.

Like all VHBs Dell’Orto they suffer from calibrations but no need for excessive

All the original Bosch electric are still well working, but I appreciate the kick-start lever easy and soft): I regret it is no adopted on the actual tourist

Frame stability and suspension are excellent, even with and in comparison with contemporary Honda 500 Four and derivatives. instead is poor, on full brake equipment, as the rear is weack and only the front one decelerates: but at full load, or in ride, it easily goes on (and sticks when or under rain conditions!).

In conclusion I tink this only suffered poor in materials and assembly when at ex-Innocenti plants, in Milano, De Tomaso management.

Riders who bought it at the time some going faster Hondas and Kawas, but the engine and in this kind of heavy work were not reliable at

In relaxed touring and commuter use it is very generous of passenger and luggage accomodation, cheap consumption (and 24 liter tank, for about 400 km. autonomy).

Forgive me for my bad english
