hi everyone, just after getting my bike back from an Aprilia Dealership for a full service (£885 :( ), 60miles down the road, my gearbox blew n stuck in 6th gear. Just had it taken apart by my reliable engine rebuilder who says its gonna take £180 worth of gearbox parts to fix it! its drivin me mad cos i cant live without my bike, but cant afford the parts!!!
does anybody have a second had AM6 gearbox for sale?? or know of anybody/where with one in the uk? peferably in good condition? i will pay good money.

Do you need the entire bottom end or just the set of gears?

£880 for a service, you got robbed m8.
Not sure where you could get gears from. What year is your bike?

na, it was all legit, just had to get all Aprilia parts which cos shit loads. and it had just low-slided at 40 and siezed! the list was:
Flywheel cover gasket
chain guide plate
2 front indicators
brake pads f/r
brake light sensor
tax disk holder
2 new pirelli tyres
oil seal kit
i then got it back after 2 weeks without it and did 30miles running it in and the gearbox blew!!
