thanks. I got this bike for a great price. I always wanted a vtwin, cause the sound so amazing. Best thing is insurance has got alot cheaper with age. 400 for full coverage for all year.. their is some perks for being over 30.

Make sure you check out AF1's website. The Mecca for aprilia owners. Keep it on a tender. They are finicky about voltage to kick that big twin and if its weak it could kick back and blow the sprag clutch. Remove the brown connector and hard wire the leads to the R/R. Read up on the "brick trick" for non exsistant rear brake pedal. Love the yellow.

Here is my 2001. I will second what Royal Tiger said about AF1 (weird fact - I was the service manager's freshman math teacher). As far as the electrical system, yes - it is tough on batteries if it sits. I found that a Lithium battery so far appears to hold a charge better. I have had to replace a couple of parts - you will need to recalibrate yourself to the Aprilia tax.

Oh, yes - and resetting the instruments is an incredibly complicated procedure.
