View Full Version : spares kit contents?

08-06-2009, 10:49 PM
I have recently purchased a 08 RXV 550 and didnt recieve an owners manual or a spares kit. Coulds someone tell me what is included in the spares kit? And does it include some blanks for the exhaust headers where the pollution stuff mounts onto. I want to get rid of the bits hanging off the side of the engine before a tree does.
Great forum and thanks for all the info that has been posted.:D

My 2008 RXV550 came with a Aprilia fanny pack w/ a few tools (wrenches, sparkplug tool, screwdrivers etc. I did get a couple of bolts from the dealer for taking off the smog-crap. Oh yeah the manual and the CD.

I did get the fanny pack with some tools but will check again to see if the bolts for the smog equipment are in there. But I dont think the manual was in the fanny pack.

The '07 models were shipped with the fanny-pack tool kit. With the '08 and '09 models, the tool kit was down-size and came in a plastic pouch. The derestriction plugs were hit and miss. Some of the '08 and '09 models came with them included in the parts box with the manual, mirrors and decals, others did not. I guess it just depended who was packing the box at the factory that day.

I didn't get the block-off plugs but I did get a set of passenger pegs that no one has mentioned to this point.
