    Are Factory and R valve covers interchangable? Don't really care about the Magnesium weight savings, wouldn't mind saving the 50$ difference for other needed stuff..

    My 2010 R has developed this problem, I can source all updated gaskets and seals through aprilia uk website . I can't however find the update valve covers . Do I need to change the value covers to solve this issue? Or will replacing all gaskets and seals be enough?

    The new gaskets “should” fix the problem, but if you continue to have issues, then get the updated covers.

    898407 x 2 updated valve covers for R model

    They are not terribly expensive, and you’d know you have the 100% fix done

    I’d probably go with new covers on my bike.

    Good info fellas, is there a base model Tuono RSV4 APRC as I recently purchased a 2012 TY model but nowhere is R or RR displayed, I know its not a Factory, reason Im asking is it has developed an oil leak from the spark plug moisture drain hole on the LHS rear cylinder, I see other threads mention it could be the valve cover seal leaking or cam bridge Orings, if Im going to buy the seals and there are updated valve covers then I need to know if they will suit my machine so I can fit them at the same time, any feedback would be appreciated.

    you have an R base model that already has the updated covers (only 2010 RSV4 had them)....get some new gaskets and you should be set

    Thanks Ed, bike has 14000kms, probably a good idea to do a valve set at the same time, whats your thoughts on timing chain replacement? some of the forums here mention updated tensioners, how far do I go if required?? Not getting a lot of info out of the local dealer here, been waiting for a parts list and price just for the gaskets and seals for over a week now.

    How can you tell updates covers ? My 2010 RSV4 is leaking/seeping . Is there a part number for a gasket kit or all individual parts?
    Thanks

    How can you tell which covers you have? My 10 RSV4 has a leak/seep on both covers . Not sure if its the gaskets or covers . I havenít had them off as itís a new to me bike and supposed to have valves checked just before purchase.

    Also is there a gasket kit or just individual parts ?

    Thanks !

    Valve covers

    How can you tell the difference between the updated and old covers ? My 2010 has developed a leak/seep from the covers .
