Default Aprilia Service

Just taking a straw poll here - how many here have an Aprilia that will need a service in the Autumn, and would be willing to commit to getting Aprilia Tamworth over? Cos they do that, they do.

The valves on the RSV4 are fairly inaccessible. Without expert knowledge+tools it'd require dropping the engine in the frame, afaik. Which would add a fair amount to labour costs.
It wouldn't be an issue with the v-twin bikes, anyone could do them.
As for the rest, you are sad little people and you have my pity

Just to add, there are really good videos on YouTube of a guy doing the valves on your bike with the engine in the bike so I'f a mechanic agreed to do it but wasn't sure he could take a look at that

Gary done the valve clearances on mine & also upgraded a lot of stuff that I wanted to do. Samco hoses & JW starter kit ect. He also done an ecu flash, it's running very sweet now.

It's a purdy little thing alright, but little is the operative word. Built for midget Italians really.
