    AA500 engine air circulation Ducks

    Hope everyone is doing well.
    I been researching about all problems related to the Aprilia Atlantic 500 and on some of the treads here there is mention of an update to the engine air flow to prevent the gas tank from 'boiling'. This update has to do with some revised air ducts/baffles/flaps. If this is true, what are the part(s) number or where can I find them? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Best advise would be to call and talk to the service advisors and Aprilia/Piaggios main US office. If you get Thierrie (something like that, its been a while) on the line you will be in good hands.

    The person who first told me about the baffle and insulation/heat shield update was a service manager at the Local Aprilia dealer who had dealt with the issues starting with the first Atlantic 500's brought into the US back around 2002 and the various attempts at fixing them. He mentioned that there were a number of different fixes that came out before they hit on a complete solution. A number of people who got hit by this will never buy another Aprilia again.
