    How-To proceedures

    It's like when people run the breather to a catch bottle that's sealed and then wonder why the air box is full of oil. Your catch bottle is an extension of the breather system make sure it can vent also!!!!

    Which is the crazy thing about the catch can system...

    Being vented to atmosphere you can still put fluids on the track...

Instead of fixing the crankcase breather issue he had created, his solution was to throw the dipstick away, drill a hole in the oil fill cap and run a hose (braided stainless of course) from the dipstick tube to the oil fill cap. Eventually the fuel vapors contaminated the oil and it put a rod through the side of the block.

    I am starting to loose my patience with Noale. The pdf you uploaded, writes 15hours intervals for fluid change.
    My manual (ed. 3 of 2008), states FAR less: 3hours


    What the fuck?

    I suggest you read the manuals but don't take everything as absolute.

    Most who have owned these bikes and have learned to work on them, have developed their own service procedures based on experience. Using common sense can sometimes be much better than the manual.

    What most surprises me is that someone finally replied. Kudos Amauri.
    I tend to change the gearbox at 3hours, after a talk we had with Hinson (he supplied me th BTL slipper), so i change the engine oil at the same time. On a friends SXV, we change them at 5 hour intervals and that is the top i think i can go with such engine on track. Silkolene pro4 15w-50 are used on my engine, 10W-60 motorex in his.

    Hi, I'm a noob. I'm changing my front and rear sprockets today with a new ek 3d chain. I can not find the torque specs for the rear sprocket bolts, I think the axle is 127Nm and called the "Wheel shaft nut"? Found at http://slorider.com/Aprilia/ Any tips on installing a new chain, where should the chain adjusters be set at for a new chain. 07 SXV 450
    Thank you

    Rear sprocket bolts should be torqued to 35Nm (26 ftlb). You are correct with 127Nm for the axle nut. The chain adjusters should be adjusted to give the specified 20-25mm chain slack.

    Thanks SXVINWA. Is there a manual that is not on the slorider website? or is that torque spec the norm for rear sprocket bolts? I'm telling ya I searched for a couple hours before asking.
