    New owner 2017 Tuono RF

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the Aprilia forum and just wanted to introduce myself to the forum, I just purchased a 2017 Tuono RF. Getting use to the amazing handling straight out of the box. Planning on doing a sag adjustment at the 600 mile service interval and possibly buying a new exhaust. Currently undecided about the exhaust. I'm looking into the Austin Racing (with baffle of course), Akrapovic, or Graves. One major problem i've had so far, was taking off the stickers on the tank, which was a bitch and badly scarred my tank. I took off all other stickers in other locations without any problems whatsoever, but the 2 top tank ones, didn't want to come off and seemed the glue was already embedded into the top coat. It was very depressing at first, specially since I had just bought the bike. Looking to see what Aprilia has to say, so far they denied my warranty request.

    Cheers everyone,

    Perry

    Nice one congrats. Post up some pics.
    Have you considered putting some other sticker to cover the marks?

    What were you using to take the stickers off? I used a heat gun and they came right off with no fuss with a little GooGone to clean up the residue.
