hi guys, need a little help i have an 07 5.5 sxv 350 mi. that juss sits in the shed mocking me.. i need help on the starting issue, has there been a reliable solution?
i had the most recent map installed in o7 don't remember the #, and now i need a battery, and starter, is there a better battery than the oem?

i also have a oil leak rear cylinder head bolt..

and finally i have the orange sealant ..which makes me feel like i'm riding a time bomb. is there a work shop manual available to help with the case splitting and re seal i'd would only be assisting in this i know some good wrenches, or whats the dealer charging for this..

bike is stock except af1 air filter and cosmetic shit. oil seal has all ready been done.

at my wits end just want to get this bike to start most of the time for shorts blast back road fun maybe a track day,, please give me some input on how i should handle each issue thanks in advance.. t

Where are you located?

Battery http://ebatteriestogo.com/merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=EBTG&Product_Code=01-330 (may not be best source for this but thats the battery.

Starter http://www.ricksmotorsportelectrics.com/ Send to Rick for rewind, comes back more robust then stock.

Orange sealant, is going to fail, its as matter of when. I would pull the engine, send it to Amauri, in the states, Cal on the other side of the big pond. for a rebuild. This will resolve the other issues. If you send it to Amauri with the throttle bodies attached he can sync them, set tps, and make sure the right map is loaded.

or Allen Noland is in mass. He is another top builder in the USA

milky oil mean sealant has already failed. Riding any more will just do more damage to the motor.

2 engines for sale here one used one rebuilt by Amauri. Might be faster to just get one. 1400 for the used one is not bad price. This may be cheaper then the reseal.

Mass would have worked great for you....but Allen is actually located in Maryland. He's a great guy and knows these bikes inside and out....Give him a call at Xtreme Powersports, he'll take the time to answer any questions you have....

how bout seacoast it's closer than anyone

I have always had milky oil on my oil cap. I took it in for service and it checked out okay. My last oil change, I didn't notice anything from my oil so if you are just seeing the milky oil from the oil cap, I wouldn't worry too much.

Can you get it up to VT.

Randy at Exit 9 Motorsports is resealing mine. (hoping under warranty but Aprilia Italy already refused it)

Give him a call.

Mines always started great even with old crappy gas and on cold days....the right map and everything set up perfectly by someone like Allen makes all the difference in that dept.

Ha! Wow, I'm in the exact same boat.
My SXV has been sitting for over a year.

Just bought some re-seal parts though, gonna try and open her up!
Wish me luck.

Dang, and i wish I saw that used engine for sale earlier :)
