    Aprilia service

    Hey guys. Just bought and old Aprilia and wondering if anyone knows a good mechanic to get it serviced? I live in Brisbane Australia and Italian bike shops are not very common. Any help would be great. Cheers.

    I have the same problem in the States. I just heard yesterday one of the only authorized shops in NC closed. Looks like I'll be buying some tools instead

    Think about how many nice tools you can buy for the price of a valve check

    Get the workshop manual for your bike and the right tools. Its a pleasure to know your bike is in good condition when you done the work yourself.

    Looking for an Aprilia dealer near Seattle

    Aprilia dealers in the Seattle, WA area have closed over the past year.

    I just discovered that Optimum Performance Motorsports (OPM) in Kirkland, WA, has picked up Aprilia.

    This is exactly what I thought. I just helped a 16 Tuono owner with his valve clearance. We've put the new shims in the intake and exhaust for the rear. Just need to get to the front and then take another measurement.
