    Question New Dorsoduro 750 owner

    Hey Guys,

    I just bought a new to me 750 with 27k miles on it. I got it super cheap, $3000 plus tax and license. I have no service history at all on it. So my question is, with this high of mileage, what are some things I should check and possibly replace? I just rode it for about 50 miles and it ran great with no problems. Thanks for your help.

    Man, that looks super clean! What a steal.

    The valves should have been checked/adjusted at 12K and 24K miles. Hopefully that was done. If it's running fine I would guess at least the first one was done. It's a gamble if it was done at 24K or not. That might be why the previous owner sold it now. Most dealers charge a fair amount for that work ($400-$700), since it's fairly involved, and you have to make sure only one cam at a time comes out during adjustment or you lose the top end timing. Also, the antennae wire near the key is VERY easily damaged during fuel tank removal, which causes starting issues because of the security system.

    Speaking of that, make sure you have 2 keys, and have programmed the security code into it. Most use something default like "0000". If you lose both keys and the code, you have to get a new dash board.

    The only other thing I can think of that wears out is the radiator fan. In traffic, it is normal to cycle from 3-4 bars on the temp gauge. If it reaches 5, the fan may be weak, or something else is going on with the water pump or whatever.

    Man, those Leo Vince pipes are worth over $1,000 alone! Congrats man!

    Thanks HC. Those are great tips. They didn't have both keys so I'll have to work on that. It is staying cool in traffic so far, but I'll keep a eye on that.

    You can order a key, and use the one they gave you to program it. AF1 probably has them in stock, and can get you one faster than anywhere else. They are expensive because of the transponder, but so important.

    In order to add a new key to the dash's white-list, you either need both original keys* or the immobiliser ("user") code.


    * Strictly speaking, two keys that the dash already accepts. For most bikes, this will be the two original keys. My own dash (a replacement) is programmed for four keys, but only two work in the locks on the bike. Some people buy extra spares, which they then also add to the dash; any two of those would work to allow adding any further keys.

    I see you're in Lakewood.

    Your new favorite mechanic is in Westminster.

    If you want to get your valves inspected, or anything else, this is your guy:

    Amauri only works on Aprilia, and he won't ding you for the hours the book says a service takes like a dealer will.

    He charges only for the actual time he spends wrenching on your bike, and since he knows these bikes inside and out, he's quick.

    I won't take my bikes anywhere else.
    You don't need to earn my respect.
    I give it freely.
    Whether or not you keep it is entirely up to you.

    27k miles is not high mileage as long as its had reasonable service.
    There's one on this forum that has done 100k miles with no issues. Mine is running brilliantly at 36k km.
