    Updated stator and rotor cost per country

    I had my rotor and stator replaced with the updated type, under a special arrangement by Piaggio. Total cost to me was only EUR 100, which surprised me.
    This includes parts and labor.

    So for riders in The Netherlands the permanent fix to the stator problem is here, and Piaggio is picking up a big portion of the Bill.

    I would like to use this thread to keep track of what is cost to have the updated stator and rotor fitted per country.

    Below is a list of the cost for replacing the stator and rotor and the prerequisites, if any.

    The Netherlands:
    Total cost for replacing the stator and rotor EUR 100 including parts and labour.
    Proof of dealer service history NOT needed, NO need to be in warrenty period, and it CAN be an imported bike as well.


    Italy:
    Price reduction on the updated parts (stator + rotor), part number AP0296988: their costs is now 380euro+vat instead of 850euro+vat.

    Aprilia will update to the new generator with no costs if your bike is still in the 2 years warranty, only if you burn the original stator.

    It is possible to have an "extended warranty" on the component for bikes that have more than 2 years, but the has to be 100% original and with a full official service book (almost impossible to approach ( )

    Once updated, Aprilia will relase a certificate of "updated bike"

    Just out of curiosity I googled APO296988 and got linked to the AJ Sutton company in Great Britain. They supply what looks like the rotor and stator for 381.35 British pounds + about 39 British pounds to ship. Using a currency converter I calculated that it would cost $621.60. It looks like you can pay using Paypal.

    I am tempted. Anyone care to comment on the procedure and difficulty in replacing the rotor.

    You will have to pull the lefthad side cover of the engine. So obviously you will have to remove fairings and you will have to unbolt the oiltank so you can move it.
    Because you pull the cover you will prolly need a gasket.

    Cover is held in place tight by magnetic forces of the generator.

    If the cover is off you can replace the stator and rotor (for this you will need the flywheel puller tool and a propane torch to break the loctite bond).

    That about it without getting into to much detail.

    btw when you have your rotor out it is a good time to check out your sprag cluch !

    Yeah really.

    Want to become a stand out motorcycle company? Fix something like this for your riders and watch how fast this word spreads. I think it'll bring many new riders.

    Kawasaki has had voltage regular isses on some late model zx6r's and 10r's bikes were new in 09 most of them, they used a cheap non mosfet regulator for some reason. They go bad anywhere from 4k miles on up. Anyway after a few years and some customers bitching(I just put an r1 mosfet regulator on mine) they recalled the entire batch because it can cause the bike to stall. Scared of lawsuits more then anything. But at least they stepped up and r replacing them all, at no charge. It's a $300 part. To correct this would cost me 1200 bucks plus either I put it on(which I can) or I pay to have them do it, and it's a mess. Long story short I would be happy if they would sell me the part at a discount.

    Start reporting your stalling issues to the NTSB maybe they will force a recall? I mean damn they recalled nutella!

    I just revisited the AJ Sutton site. In one days time the price of the rotor and stator has increased from 381.35 pounds to 488.83 pounds. This represents a one day increase of $173.

    just a heads up...parts prices are adjusting worldwide...they are changing up and down on an almost daily basis. I think they are merging all teh World systems together with their new parts distribution warehouse in Italy.

    We've been updating our store part by part. Once they release a complete set price file, we can update everything.

    gee why do we have to pay for this kit?
    and apparently its only if you are within the 2 year warranty period

    I've owned my '04 RVSR since 12/17/03

    Aprilia replaced my stator, R/R and battery twice under warranty

    i've put 4 more in and a series regulator..........
    now in the US they want $1220.99 NOT including labor for what should have been a recall
    http://www.af1racing.com/store/Scripts/prodList.asp

    why should I have to pay for a fix for a POS that didn't work from the beginning?????????

    Such a small company, I would doubt until it kills someone that they would voluntarilly recall it. A bike stalling and not restarting is no joke in DC traffic, very dangerous.

    Not to mention passing a vehicle on the highway and having your bike fall flat on its face when it goes into limp mode. I will not trust mine more than 30 miles from home. This after three stator replacements. The stator life on these bikes is less than a weeks vacation on some BMWs and Goldwings.

    I've said it before and I will say it again, Aprilia's failure to come up with a fix for this problem at a decent price to the owner is negligent, bordering on criminal. Totally unacceptable in todays motorcycle market.
