    High revs when changing gear

    I have noticed a little annoyance when changing up gears, the revs dont drop when I roll off the throttle

    Its only a problem at lowish speeds as I clutchless upshift at higher speeds.

    Cables - routing or lubing?

    i have the same problem Kiwi...

    Spoke to griff on it

    turns out one of my clip ons is slightly bent which has led to cabling being in wrong place which has led to revs staying high on revs..

    a new clip on and later 02- throttle cabling is apparently better....griff the man

    Interesting point that Chris !!.
    I have Ohlins forks and as AMB67 pointed out the clipons are not standard, so I might have to find some clipons suitable for Ohlins forks.


    Does anybody know what diameter they need to be ?

    dont know the answer to that mate but griff did say 'DO NOT BUY ANYTHING OTHER THAN OFFICIAL APRILIA CLIP-ONS' must be a reason if the mighty one said it...

    he quoted me a price that was cheap for new ones give him a buzz.
