    Newbie

    Hi Folks,
    Just bought a yellow 2002 RSV mille, haven't even collected it yet but looking forward to doing so at the weekend

    got some good tips and interesting stories from the TL zone so thought I'd join up here and see what's what.

    Look forward to getting to know some of you, Any other owners in the Cambridge area?

    Pitty about the starter - they're not too expensive on e-bay though

    Love the wheels probably cost more than my bike though

    The rsv is the best value 1000 cc bike at the moment. Prices must rise
    The aprilia used to win all the bike comparisons in the day (except the ones bribed by honda. I looking at you mcn )
    How can a shitty honda sp1 /sp2 be worth 6000 plus (laughing at shithonda )

    It was the starter one way bearing, costs about 300 in parts !

    Don't take your rsv to any old dealer, aprilia performance repair these bikes best, they know what to look for ! Most aprilia dealers don't know much about the rsv and they'll take your money to practice on your dollar !

    Finally got to ride the RSV today after spending some time sorting out the horrible things previous owners had done to it! Some people shouldn't be allowed to have tool kits!
    With the suspension set up 'by the book' instead of according to someone who thinks he's Guy Martin (but manages to wear a 3 inch wide flat in the centre of the rear tyre) she now feels absolutely superb - who'd have thought multiple WSB champions, Aprilia, know best how to set up a bike they designed? DUH! read the book guys!
    I bought this to replace a Suzuki TL 1000 - S and I couldn't be more pleased, it's a gem of a bike.
