1) Your on the website for parts.

2) Go here: http://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/search.php for info on your bike...and also spend a few days reading through the posts on here that are specific to your bike.

3) Then read this...and call your dealer and make sure you have the proper mapping. http://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1223190&postcount=1

4) Take it easy for the first tank of gas and then :burnout: :burnout: :burnout: :burnout: :burnout: :burnout: :burnout: :burnout: :burnout: :burnout: :burnout: :burnout: :burnout: :burnout:

:plus: 15/42 gearing transforms the bike from the stock 16/40. Acceleration in fierce!! Best mod I have done :banana:

Since you've already spent a small fortune on the bike, go with the cheapest option for now until you learn and adapt to the new bike.

Going bigger on the rear with a 42T and stock chain will position the wheel all the way forward in the adj. slot and will make the bike unstable at high speed corners, IMO.

Also, the smallest the rear sprocket you can get away with will reduce the torque reaction on the swingarm under heavy acceleration.

We're using 15/39 at the track.

Just get a 15T on the front and ride for a while.

thanx for the advice i did a sprocket kit on my 2003 and i'm not sure how i feel about it i like the faster acceleration but i loose top end so i'm not sure i guess i should just start spending more money and do big upgrades.

It lowers the power in the rev range so it seems like much more power from lower down. Generally bike bike feels like it pulls much harder through the entire rev... oh and it makes it easier to wheelie.. :happy:

Hey mobee, where abouts in HK do you ride? Are there a lot of nice roads? I have visited before but i thought the traffic congestion would seriously hamper having fun on a sports bike. I am thinking of moving there in a year or two and was concerned about how much i would miss riding.
