Default bike cutting out

Hi Guys/girls,

I'm new here so hello to everyone. I have a 2004 RSV Factory which I purchased 2 weeks ago. When I picked it up it had only 12 miles on the clock, so it is essentially new. Its running well with the exception that it cuts out at slow speeds sometimes. What should it tick over at and has anyone else experienced this problem.

Also, does anyone know how to set the clock on the dash. I'm awaiting the arrival of the owners manual but in the meantime its wrecking my head riding around not knowing what time it is.

thanks,

Giller.

Turn on the ignition

hold down + and - together for at least 3 seconds (hour flashes)

use + or - to set hour

hold down TRIP for 3 seconds to select minutes

set minutes using + or -

hold down TRIP again for 3 seconds until clock stops flashing

The fact that the clock is wrong is indicative of a flat or disconnected battery before you got it.

The bad news is that your low mileage is almost certainly the result of the odometer resetting itself. This is a common problem on these bikes if the battery is very low or left disconnected for a long period. But, it can also happen for no good reason too (mine was fine for 3 years, then suddenly reset just for the hell of it).

I suggest you look at service invoices and/or MOT to check true mileage.

P.S. - Welcome to the forum

hiya - after fitting my Tig slip-ons the bike just about ticks over and it is easy to stall if I am a bit slap dash with the clutch when pulling away. This should be fixed when I get the Homer airbox and PC3.

If you have standard cans then the ECU should be set to Map1, any after market cans should be set to Map2. Dealers can do this during a service.

Mine doesn't.

This stalling issue has been disussed to destruction on The Aprilia Forum.
With the latest map and efi set up properly there should be no stalling issue.
Seems many dealers don't do there homework and don't set the injection up properly. Each cylinder has a different setting. Many set both the same.

Tick over on mine is 1250 i think. The reset of the clocks was cured by an updated dash which was a warranty item but yours is likely out of warranty now.

Getting the throttle bodies properly set up and balanced should cure it.

If it only happens when the cluth is pulled in, then it might need bleeding as they tend to drag if there's any air in there.

Bleed the master cylinder first, then the slave, and do it carefully to get every last bubble out, and this may help...

thanks for the replies guys, regarding the mileage issue, I'm as sure as i can be that it is genuine as it is fairly difficult to pass off a bike with higher mileage on it as having only 12 miles. It was absolutely mint when i got it, spotless, like it was out of the box. The brake discs still had the milling machine marks on them. it would be hard to tell the difference between a bike that had 20,000 on it versus a bike that had 10,000 on it, however a bike that is essentially brand new is easy enough to spot.

Welcome to the forum.
Pretty amazing to find a 2 - 3 year old bike with only 12 miles on it - where did you find it?

I got it in 20-20 motorcycles near Newcastle and rode it home to Ireland. The story goes that some wealthy dude bought it and rode it half way home before getting his mate to complete the journey as he wasn't able for the bike at all. So he left it sitting there since july 2004, he then sold it back to the shop. I've had the fairings off to do the 600 mile service and the engine was literally like it was just off the production line.
