    First time Aprilia owner

    Hello all.

    Recently treated myself to a silver 2003 mille. Never owned italian before but i can definitely see me falling in love with the way she handles.

    Does have a heavy clutch though, it seems to be a standard bike apart from an Akropovic slip on so i am looking for tips to personalise her and make her a bit more user friendly.

    Hi and welcome. Try upgrading the clutch slave for a lighter action.

    Gladly, any recommendations on which cylinder ?
    Also, why is the rear brake so poor ?

    Oberon is popular and comes with a lifetime warranty. The rear brake probably needs bleeding or new fluid.
