    Mivv Cans!!!

    Good Afternoon All, I am just about to fit some Mivv GP cans to my RSV Factory. Does anyone know if I need to do anything other than fit them?? I have heard you are meant to change a MAP setting from Map1 to Map2 If that is the case how the hell do I do that and does this have to be done by an Aprilia dealer? I would appreciate any advice. Cheers!!!!

    Confusion time fellas, the chap has a Gen 2 Factory, the helpful hints refer to a Gen 1

    If you're running less restrictive pipes on a Gen 2 you'll need to get a dealer to switch the map from 1 to 2. Don't know of any other way of doing it apart from using the Aprilia plug in tool.

    Hi mate i had mivv x cones on my gen II and *uck me wot a set of cans, if you know someone with the axione (or something like it)tool then great but if not dealer bound you will be but before you go down that road fit the cans and see how she feels if it feels a bit lumpy on a steady throttle or just doesnt pull cleanly go for the change but you will use a lot more fuel and it might not sort it i ended up fitting a pc 3 and downloading a map and had no worres after that,hope this helps but hurry up and fit those bad boys and wake the neihbours up i still miss the noise mines made.......

    Just got the MIVV's in the box today will get them on tomorrow. Didn't realise the baffles were riveted in!!!!! That is a bit of a nightmare as they will have to be riveted back in every time they get replaced... Does anyone know the actual rivet size?. Going to fit them tomorrow can't wait......

    Got the cans on they are awesome, think I am going to have to keep the Baffles in though!!! I have uploaded a video in the Bike Pictures section. Only a short one but you get the idea... Got to take it though yet to see how she runs, fingers crossed she will be ok.

    Nice cans mate. I have a single Mivv GP Carbon. I have started it on the drive without the baffle but I don't have the balls to run it out on the road without one.
