    Replacement tail light lenses

    So with the recent success of my printed straps I think Iím going to reinvest the cash I made into an SLA 3D printer to facilitate printing replacement tail light lenses and any other high resolution parts. Thoughts?

    Great idea and good opportunity. If you haven't already done so - you may want to post something on the Futura Facebook group and make these available to folks over there (along with your pannier straps). Seems there is always someone looking for tail light lenses over there.

    You are so good man!

    If you wish, I could help you with international shipping. Shipping from Russia is much cheaper than from US.
    English is not my native language, so please be kind to my mistakes.

    Remember, this is an Italian bike with an Austrian motor, it isn't like the GSXR you use to own...

    I would be super into that, you could maybe even make some clear ones. I'd be in for one either way

    Although I still have my originals, I'd invest in a spare set. Just in case my packing tape security system fails... :'P

    Dude, that would be great. You could start a whole side business making discontinued Aprilia parts, lol.

    Hahah, not quite. If I make too much of a ruckus Iím sure aprilia will have something to say about it. But right to repair should protect me making replacements for parts that are no longer provided by the mfg.

    I'm in Gresham, how about yourself? I just picked up the bike a few months ago, loving everything about it except for finding parts!
