    mod that works best is rear sets that relocate the master on the rear sets

    Get into Griff at Aprilia Performance. Got some rearset s off him which relocate MS. Very reasonable compared to others and work a treat

    Did you see the end of this thread http://rsvzone.com/forums/showthread...rvice-bulletin about fitting a shiver rear m/c?

    There's one on ebay at the moment for a lot less £ than rearsets..http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/APRILIA-SH...item231bffa006

    Rear sets is the only permanent fix.
    There's loads to choose from. Any will do the job as long as they re-locate that m/c OFF the motor.

    Oh and I swapped the bleed nipple and brake line round so air goes back up up to reservoir rather than getting stuck in caliper

    Those AP rearsets look good.
    Brakeswitch wiring needs shortening & a 180deg connector to run the wiring back down the m/c tidily.
    Also, you could perhaps loose a few inches on the fluid level pipe, plus, secure with lockwire to eliminate the hose clamp.
    But that's just me being a really fussy twat

    Yeah you are being a fussy twat. But so am I so that's ok. Early shot this when I first put them on. The res has been shortened etc but looking for a 180 connector if you could point me in right direction
