I stopped by Xtreme Power Sports in McHenry, MD today to say hi to the guys, I walked in and couldnt believe my eyes! They had street converted RS125's! They said they have already sold and registered a few and had been flooded with calls for more and for changing over current owners RS's. I attached a few pics for some eye candy! If you guys are ever out in Western MD check these guys out, truly an amazing shop and some great riding too!

someone said they wanted 500$ for the conversion...I couldn't imagine spending that much money for 3 hours worth of work.

That could also be the mirrors signals wiring harness bulbs license bracket etc plus labor which can be a bitch with the wires and all but they have a listing on ebay for one new going for a grand over retail.

Three hours worth of work is an understatement. Allen said they have to replace the entire wiring harness, install signals, relays, brake pressure switches, license plate holder, and more. I would think the parts alone would be over $500, especially including the wiring harness. Three hours worth of work, I bet you couldnt repalce the wiring harness in three hours, since the bike has to be stripped to the frame. $500 would be a deal, but I'd bet it's closer to $1,000.

Dude, don't mean to start something here, but your previous post said you picked up your bike on Wednesday and you were still working on it on Thursday. That's longer than 3 hours. Besides in the pics of the bike it's still not finished. Not taking sides, just something doesn't add up. :crowbar:

They said that price includes all parts and labor. I don't knw the prices on the harness, switches and plate bracket, but the prices from AF1 on just the led turn signals (4), mirrors (2) and horn are close to $350

I dont know where you are coming up with the $500, Allen said that so far they were only converting the bikes they had in the shop, and had not come up with a price on a "Parts Kit" to do it yourself

Sounds great!

How much Club Fed time and what are the Federal $$$ fines for doing it? Not only as a licensed vehicle dealer doing the work, but as an owner of one? Did the bikes on the East Coast not have the MFG plate?

There could be some great added benefits as well: http://www.theonion.com/content/node/52702

so because I worked on it an hour a day, over three days, it took me longer than three hours?

Between life and work, I don't have every waking moment to work on a motorcycle, many things come before it.

MY RS125 has the same plate as yours, and I didn't have any trouble getting a plate.

Kevin at Eurosports in PA just told me the parts total was in the low $600, for all of the above mentioned parts. I did ask about labor because I will do it myself, I was even going to make the supplement wiring harness for these bikes for people to add on, but it looks like everyone is just going with an entire new harness. I make wiring harnesses for custom applications almost everyday so this is a big "yawn" for me, but to the average Joe just wanting to hop on the bike and ride I guess a parts kit is the way to go.

I might still make my own parts kit, with supplement harness and non-oem led turn signals if anyone is interested PM me.

I am also looking into a non-oem license plate holder, but since I havent picked mine up from the dealer yet it is making the design and production of that part a bit difficult.

Does anyone know if the plate holder mounting points are similar to an 01' RS50? I have that here so I could at least get started on it awhile.

I think the key part on the plate your referring to is the last line. that says unless a local jurisdiction finds it legal or permitable. (or something along those lines) In Maryland I found out that all you have to do is get the bike inspected and if it passes MD inspection than the MVA recognizes it as road worthy. As for emissions, I have no clue what happens there. But I cant see a difference between that an a SR 50 as far as emissions goes.

I also called the guys up at Xtreme and they have a complete list of the parts needed fot the conversion and said everything you need retails for close to $1,000 take or give a bit due to a lot of the parts not being available in the states, and some have to be imported from over the pond. I guess Aprilia USA realizes this and refuses to bring some of the needed parts into the US.

I thought someone might like to see some pics of how we do this.

Step 1. Remove all bodywork
Step 2. Remove the original wiring harness
Step 3. Install a new Euro 3 harness and all the OEM Aprilia components
Step 4. Replace all the bodywork

There are a lot of ways to get the lights to work, but this seem to be the best way to me (the good looking guy on the 125 in Ducati Eaters pictures) By using all Aprilia components, there is no guess-work, spliced or soldered wires or faulty connections. This will not only cut down the number of electrical problems in the future, but also allow your Aprilia service tech to work on the bike without charging you for all the extra time he sent chasing wires on a "custom" wiring harness if there is a problem. I am sure that a properly converted bike will also have a higher re-sale value, as most buyers will have second thoughts about purchasing a bike that is held together with crimp commectors and electrical tape. It takes a bit longer than 3 hours, but makes for a good finished product.
