Ciao Manaisti....

The Mana should have a "no fat chicks" sticker instead of that that "no pets" one. I guess there have been some bikes where the rear wheel has rubbed up against the fuel tank so today Aprilia mailed out a Service Communication to us dealer, se attached....

DP says: Still this is the BEST bike around in my book....

Thanks for this post, i was wondering why there was the hissing sound everytime i unscrewed my petrol cap, looks like the fuel valve was causing the fuel tank to inflate.There was also a time when i had to use some molegrips to unscrew the cap as the inflation of the tank caused it to lock tight.

I have now had this part replaced and luckily did it under warranty as this could of caused more damage with the back tyre rubbing against the bottom of the tank (360 to replace) especially like you said if i had a heavy pillion.

It may be worth changing the title of this thread to something like "warning mana recall of faulty fuel valve", to make people more aware.

Thanks again for posting..
