    At the risk of sounding stupid

    Does this apply for 2004 RSVs world wide? So I should get the recall done for free in Canada too?

    I assume this recall is valid for RSVs the world over. So this work will be carried out by a dealer in Canada for me?

    Yes, and Yes. So long as it is a 'legit' import and Aprilia Canada recognise your bike.
    I was told by the authorised Aprilia dealer I purchased from that there have been issuses with 'grey imports' that are being sold here in NZ by an importer who cannot register his bikes with Aprilia NZ, and therefore his bikes are not covered under warranty.

    hay all

    Picked up my new track bike this past weekend an 04 rsvr and the rear swingarm is the orignal one with the two bolt hole's in it so i go to my local dealer and put in a claim for a replacement swingarm not biggie me thinks... but he gets back to me this arvo and tells me that aprilia have knock back the warranty claim because on there computer it already been done

    So i check it again this time i notice it got a nice crack coming from the lower hole i ring him back to tell him that it's defently hasn't been changed and that it's got a crack comming from the lower hole he tells me to bring it in and they will take some pic's and see what they can be done about it ... Am i fucked or will they see the light change it... has this happen to anyone else or am i just unlucky ?

    thanks marsie

    Just wanted to let you all know - I work for an Aprilia Dealer and had this query from one of our customers today ('04 bike, new to him, old swingarm). I checked the status in Aprilia Warranty & it wasn't showing as being outstanding but I E-mailed AWS & within half an hour had my answer.
    The bike is too old to show in GGP (Warranty system), however recall is outstanding and an E-mail will be sent to Italy to unlock this machine & allow us to do the warranty repair.
    If you are having trouble with your dealer, get him to e-mail AWS.

    Good luck

    I might be having same problem...I contacted a dealer about mine, who after running my VIN said the replacement was already done. I checked my swingarm and it has the two holes in it...(fortunately no crack though). I will pursue this a little more when I go down to see dealer who then tells me that my 05 RSVR has a recall for the fuel lines to be replaced!! go figure!!

    I would find another dealer who is willing to go above and beyond to help you out. I went to a dealer about an 1.5 hours away. They sucked..now I drive over 3 hours to a dealer. Worth it!!

    It is a recall...so I dont think there is a time stamp on it. I would get it done asap though.

    Stickmeister is right, it is a recall, no expiration date.

    Aprilia/Piaggio Corporate has been trying pretty hard to scoop up all the few remaining people that are still running around on pre-recall swingarms.

    Get it to a dealer that is willing to do it.

    They're probably going to wait for your to bring the bike in before ordering the part.

    Most dealers are not going to pre-order a part that expensive. We stock one, but many dealers do not.

    This thread made me look twice on my 05 Factory...i checked a year ago when i picked it up but wasnt sure anymore. The swingarm was fine but once i start wrenching i cany stop so the rear brake received a thurough bleeding and i even dropped the fron forks a tad while wiping and polishing everything as i moved along haha
