    Your dealer prob wont know more than I've posted at this stage. Prob less.

    I know we cannot legally sell any new bike that is under federal recall until the recall work is complete. He shouldn't let it roll until its fixed.

    Ed, do you feel the bike is ok to ride at a cruising, non gonzo pace, or should we just park them?

    this is what Aprilia says on the matter

    Please note that until the internal float element has been replaced, the vehicle must be ridden judiciously, taking into account the possible loss in braking capacity, moderating speed and maintaining longer safety distances. Customers must not use the vehicle on the track until the replacement has been completed.

    Maybe everyone knows but I don't think I've seen it posted here so FYI -

    This recall affects all brembo PR16 radial master cylinders, these are found on KTMs, Ducati and Aprilia across at least some 2015-2018 models. Aprilia was just the first one to issue a recall. Ducati shortly followed saying 8000 bikes are affected in the US. Doesn't look like KTM has issued a recall yet but they have bikes that are affected and probably will soon. Ducati says their recall is expected to go out feb. 15th, a full month after aprilia's so hey maybe that means aprilia gets the first parts?

    For any owners in Australia that are affected; I have just talked with the Tasmanian Aprilia dealer & they quickly processed my VIN, called me back within 5 minutes, confirmed recall on my bike & they have back ordered the parts.
    The tech said that he spoke with Aprilia AU who said they ordered the recall parts before Christmas, estimated time of arrival from Italy is expected sometime in the next 2 weeks.
    That's the best he could come up with, no guarantee on the ETA.

    Very good news. Should be fixed well before the Island WSBK. I emailed my dealer but haven't rung as I assumed they will be down on staff over xmas / ny.
    Must ring Monday and make a booking.
    Thanks Plocky

    Out riding this morning with some mates in an endeavour to beat the heat. Got chatting to an RSV4 rider at the Shell Oberon . Said his warranty had been done last week by the Parramatta dealer.
    Happened to be sporting a good looking stubby Austin Racing slip on. Bloody loud

    Do you mean the recall for brake MC piston fixed (subject of this thread) or a warranty service?
    Hmm, Parramatta, that would be Bike Biz I guess.

    Dealers will be doing a full replacement of the internal piston, a part #, and procedure has been laid out

    Owner Notification: Each owner of a vehicle included in this recall will be notified by first class mail. In this letter Aprilia USA will describe the details of the concern, the cause, and the correction addressed by this recall. In addition, Aprilia USA asks that each owner contact their respective Aprilia dealer to arrange for an appointment to have the parts and labor required of this recall completed. Please make every effort to accommodate your recall customers within your existing service schedule. Please note that until the internal float element has been replaced, the vehicle must be ridden judiciously, taking into account the possible loss in braking capacity, moderating speed and maintaining longer safety distances. Customers must not use the vehicle on the track until the replacement has been completed.
    ED, I bought my bike from AF1 in Nov. and had the shop do 100% race only build for me, LOVE THE BIKE.. I live in Upstate NY and will not be able to get the recall done before Race practice season In Feb.. Could you please advise me to what complete part I should buy from AF1 to do a complete replace? Not concerned about price, just need awesome brakes for racing..My bike is the 2017 RF..I appreciate and respect your guidance on this matter .Thanks, Scott Reynolds
