    Oil filter upgrade...?

    Seen this over the last few months, so i decided to send an email to an Aprilia dealer in parts

    the reply was this


    " Hello, thanks for your enquiry.



    APRILIA RSV1000



    We are aware of changes to the oil filter but for normal road use there would seem to be little if any advantage in making any alterations.

    The same oil filter has been used for all V990 engines since 1998.

    Regards

    So if you are racing ya bike or revving the nuts off it all the time you might need the longer oil filter and cover but for every day road use it will be fine

    but it can't do it any harm , only good (easier oil flow) . So i don't mind throwing the 9.99 for the extended cover which i did.
