Gilera Cougar parts

Post by Ollie » Wed Feb 05, 2020 7:07 pm

Hi guys,
I’ve got a Gilera cougar which I’m repairing before I take it for an MOT however I’m finding it hard to find parts for the bike so I was wondering does anyone on here know of any website where I can get parts. The part which I’m struggling to find is a rear brake light switch/ toggle for the front brake lever.

As stated brake switches are mostly generic but you may also get better results if you look for a Gilera "Coguar"..

I’m still seeing a lot of Gilera Runner 125 front brake light toggle do you think that they will fit on the Gilera Cougar as the parts which have been linked to are for the rear lever when I need the brake light toggle for the front lever

Thanks for the help in finding a switch that’s all sorted now however I need help to find a chain guard for a Gilera Cougar 125 or one that will fit this bike as my current one has no rear attachment point and is required to be on the bike for its MOT.
