There's a technical bulletin on the Aprilia dealer site saying they've put the wrong recommended grade of oil in the handbook - in chapter 6 "Scheduled Maintenance" it says you should use Agip gear oil, it should read "Agip Tec 4T SAE 15w/50".

Thought that looked a bit strange when I saw it :) Thanks for the info.

Which handbook do you mean? I don't see a chapter 6 with that title (Spanish version) on mines.

Also, does this mean we have been getting the wrong oil in all the services?

I'd doubt any workshop woud be daft enough to put the wrong oil, so I wouldn't worry about it. The bulletin has just come out so it might only affect the latest owners handbooks.

Sorry, dealers only. It's not very exciting though, you're not missing much.
