    New to here and to Aprilia.

    Hi,

    New to the forum and to riding Aprilia's! My previous bike was a 749s and I have now recently bought a 2002 RSVR. My first weeks riding has brought a smile to my face and I love it!!

    I think I could do with some advice on setting up the suspension for me and for riding with a pillion. Took the missus out for a short ride today and althoygh she loved it I dont think me or the bike did!

    I'll try and get some pictures of it up soon. Any advice welcome!

    Cheers

    Hi mate welcome aboard!

    Have a look at this for some tips. Other way to sort it is at a track day where someone like K-Tech usually offer the service for about 45 specifically for you. Donnigton will have the details.

    Thanks for all the advice I will try and sort out the suspension settings on my next ride. Any tips about the pillion bit? Would it be best to have two setups, one for just me and one for me and the missus?

    Welcome to the zone. very good peeps here and advice. I do the same two different settings. I have a 02 and 07 she likes ridding on both so I have to put a full trun on the spring on the rear and all good to go. Enjoy the apes. What color do you have and do you live in So Cal.d
