What happened to this bike in the end?

Mark

Currently SORN (though I might have sneaked out on it a few times, ahem, I mean transported it to a private road, officer....) under a cover in the ba ...

Yeah, it does have stripdown details for both 43 and 50mm forks. You have mail... :smt003

The postman is on strike :)

I can see there being a real shortage of panels before long, if there isn't ...

There was I, hoping for a nice write up on servicing the Marzocchis! The last forks I stripped down were from a 250LC over 20 years ago
I was just trawling through my hard drive tonight when I chance ...

Here is some food for thought.

I've been mainly using Esso premium fuel this year after hearing that it is one of the few that doesn't contain ethanol. Went to lift the tank up last week and I was ...

I certainly don't post as much as I used to, and I suspect Facebook is partially to blame for that (well, actually it's my fault for letting FB take up too much of my time).

This winter I've got a ...

I'll probably have a few hundred thousand questions over winter too as I'm planning a fairly big project.

Still have to build the workshop on the other side of the house as the garage is too full o ...

Griff was kind enough to give me a few pointers on Facebook on a Sunday.

For future reference: If this message pops up on the dash without plugging the diagnostic wires together then there's an in ...

I'd give Griff a ring at Aprilia Performance. It's likely he's encountered this before/

I tried that but they're not open on the weekend

I've not checked the voltage drop however it has no problem starting. It doesn't do this when starting.

So today, it started fine. I got 20 yards before it cut out and brought this up. I started it ...

So its cutting out and Diag mode is popping up on the right hand screen and showing the TPS position - i.e. exactly as if the diag wires had been connected.

No error codes, just the -1, 0, 1 as if ...

51mm forks from an RSVR?

54mm mate.

A lot of bike for the cash.

51 where they go through the top yoke. No idea about the rest.

Edit: 51 / 56?

I found a poorly crimped bullet connector on the blue/grey wire to the engine stop relay that I suspect is the issue. That would be a like hitting the kill switch.

I think the bullet is due to the ...

Yes there is a coating that may peel a bit given the age. It's probably for scratch protection.

Yes definitely worth a look thanks. How did you figure out it was that connector?
