    RSVR 2006 essential mods....

    Just got a bargain 2006 RSVR, I've had 3 RSVs before but always had battery/charging issues, so I want to try and get all the upgrades I can for the charging system as well as a few other mods, anything you can suggest? Flapper valve sounds very annoying, I saw a guide on here but the pics are all gone, so I guess I need guidance and possibly someone with parts to sell to sort...

    *Charging issues

    *Terrible side stand

    *Side stand switch (which has flashed on once or twice so far and seemed to cut the revs)

    *Flappy sound from airbox

    *Impossible neutral

    *Any other important mods to make it more pleasurable and less work, I just want it to be as much fun and as little work as possible.

    Thanks.

    I was just about to post a similar question. I hope someone has some good advice. I can't find neutral if at a stand still and when I go for side stand I usually bang it I to first or second. No help I know but wanted you to know I feel your pain Btw I have a 2010 RsvR

    The best thing to do to a gen2 ? Sell it, burn it. (Piaggio took over aprilia in 2004, they refused all warrenty work, AND changed the bike with cheaper items)

    Once sold then buy a gen 1. None of the gen2 foibles....

    The gen1 makes you look and feel better lol

    Right for the kick stand I have found a kick stand shoe on the official RnG website. This should help dramatically with that issue.

    For the side stand I got a US spec one. Great job. Get an oxford optimiser charger to leave bike battery maintained when not in use and make sure you get a good battery.

    1st gear is impossible when stopped. Good upgrade is aprilia akropovic cans and get a dealer to swap the ECU setting to mod 2 for correct fueiing etc.

    It's actually already got The Akrapovic Aprilia cans, needs new stickers though. No idea about the chip though, how do I know if I've got it?

    If your bike is gen 2 it doesn't need a chip it just needs the ecu switched onto mode 2 by an aprilia main dealer. Another good mod is oberon or similar clutch slave cylinder which makes the clutch action a bit lighter.

    Ok cool, cheers. It does actually have the Factory Racing slave cylinder too! The standard one went on my old one so that's always a priority.
