    Rumors claim Chinese wiring harnesses, but can you tell us what this language is?

    That's definitely Greek.

    Thanks for the language info gentlemen. The Greek math symbols were obviously NOT Chinese.

    The automated wire-crimping machines don't know how to solder!

    Catfish, that sticker shows that the harness went to a trip to a greek dealership. Seems never installed and somehow went back to aprilia central (in Greece or Italy) and then shipped over to US.

    The looms are made by the french and use citreon connectors look at the ecu plugs and you will find the << of the manufacturer

    aprilia used french electrics all over the bike including french sagem coils(later jci ) & injectors. Even the AICV motor is french.

    This I feel is the greatest weakness of the caponord/futura. Not that the mille etc italian looms were much better.

    I've never questioned why I ride, it's as basic as breathing.

    Heated Grips not working and Hazards intermittent?

    If you can solder and are not colour blind try this.

    Remove the switch box from the r/h grip mount and unplug the two waterproof connectors behind the screen (4 way and a 3 way). remove the whole assembly from the bike and take to a bench.

    remove the adhesive gunk from the back cover (looks like some kind of varnish sealant) and GENTLY prise open the box. inside you'll find lots of rust and cr@p and a few bits of switch if it's anything like mine.

    Gently remove the rest of the gunk
    Unsolder all the wires and try to guess where they go when you put it back together

    OR use this diagram as a starter:

    I bought two replacement switches and waterproof cover from MAPLIN (other electric stores are available) for less than £12

    When resoldered and all put back together Test it on the bike BEFORE you feed cables through, I found out that I'd put the heated grip switch in the wrong way round so LOWis high and High is Low - but I know so........

    Final job is to reseal the back cover on to the box, I used some of this stuff:

    bearing kit capo

    Hello Brucaliffo,

    I'm a new member on this forum and I wanted to ask you if it's till possible to order one full bearing kit for the connection rod of the swing arm for my Caponord 2003?
    yesterday I discovered while working on my Caponord that they are all completly worn out and rod pins+ seals also.


    I was in contact with Karl Bianchini from abruzzo.com and he directed my to you. And I noticed in the threads that you are the wright person.
    Is it still possible?



    kind regards

    For those that haven't changed the Clutch Slave Cylinder yet, Factory Racing in the UK are selling some cheap (GBP60), to create some cash-flow.
    http://www.motopike.com/index.php?ro...th=247_249_293
    If you're outside UK, it'll be less their 20% tax, but plus some for freight.
    Note that I had one fitted to my wife's Capo and after a long time of sitting still, it failed. I enquired after a seal kit and Adam replied very quickly that failures were very unusual; he's sending me a seal kit at no charge. His customer-service is tops and to be fair, I haven't been able to find any other reports of failures of his products. I accept that this failure is rare and might have occurred because the bike sat unused for many months, so I've bought a replacement slave as well, just in case there really is something irrepairably wrong with the original.
    No connection to the company other than as a pleasantly surprised customer with a swiftly and fairly sorted problem.
