    Rear wheel lock up

    Well that's my first ever aprilia purchased and rode home.
    Bit of an eye opener when rear wheel locked up 1/2 mile from dealer.
    Took it back got it fixed on way home and did it again.

    Yeah previous owner had adjusted cylinder right in. Garage put new pads in it so when fluid heated up you got auto braking
