hi, im quite new to this forum, in about a month i will be buying a 05 aprilia rs 50 and would like to put mods on to it. but i dont know wat mods will be good on it, so this is the question: wat mods would work well, but still be reliable? i dont care about price because i have a long time till i can ride it. and also wat visual mods would be good? and wer could i get all these mods from?

cheers for all of ur advice.

if you were going to spend so much money on a bike, and aim to make it faster, why not just get a bigger bike in the first place???

It did not cost so much money, the retail value of the parts is about 750 us dollars.
Its quicker than a lot of other light bikes and its faster than most bikes in the corners.
Its a simple engine, its easy to work with, parts are easy to get and relativly cheap.
Also the less CC's you got the more agresive the engine is.
And the RS50 is is just a whole lot of fun to drive.

If I was your age and had your bike eperience I would go 4 a rs125/ 250. The rs125 is easier to get parts for than the 50 (well here anyway) and is not much heavier and Im sure the rs250 is light enough aswell, but thats just my opinion :)

i disagree for a few hundered more (whatever currency you lot use) you could of got a rs125, there so much more fun in the corners, i wont comment on speed and that thogh cause of your mods i dont know what its like to ride in a straight line though id guess it wouldnt be near a rs125

Driven a couple of RS125 and there not better in the corners, maybe there better if your RS50 front fork is a bit soft yeah, but if you replaced the oil for a heavy fork oil of good qualety the 125 wont be better in the corners.
Also a new RS125 is a lot more than a new RS50 is including the parts,.
The RS50 is not the only bike i had, also owned much heavyer bikes and there not as much fun to buzz with around town, for that the RS50 is still the best thing, also a lot of fun on all the little twisty roads here in the area.

But do you really need that CDI thing? I know Patrick has one because his bike is a rolling TP shop, but is it practical for everyday use?

RS_Patrick
04-19-2006, 05:49 PM
you dont really need the CDI if the bike doesnt run over 10.000rpm, the main reason i change them is because i rather spent 35 euros on a TP one than 120 to replace the original one if it blows/burns up witch is more than likly to happen if the bike runs over 10.000rpm at a long period of time.
It also should have a slightly better timing curve for higher RPM's but thats hardly noticable unless you really got a tuned up engine.
