SOURCE: sump oil drainage location 250 scarabeo aprilla

Hello,
I am not too familiar with your Machine?
However is there a drain screw on the clutch case/cover.
Is this engine 2 or 4 stroke?
If it is 2 stroke then NO oil drain plug only gearbox drain if geared. If twist and go then No maintenance required.
Have you tried Aprillia website for further info?
I hope this helps,

Changing rear brake pads on a 2011 tri glide ultra classic


A TriGlide's rear brakes are quite different from a two-wheeled Ultra, which seems to be what everyone has been talking about. In order to change the pads:
While the bike is on the ground, break the lug nuts loose on both sides. Release the parking brake. Then lift the bike so that the rear tires are far enough off the ground that you can take a rear tire off and get it out from under the fender.
Start with the left rear tire, as it is the furthest away from the master cylinder. With the tire out of the way, you can see the caliper. You'll see a lever on the caliper for the parking brake on the inboard side of the caliper. There is n Ny-Lock type nut on the lever shaft. Remove the nut and lever, and back the bolt out. The bolt is what applies pressure to the caliper piston when you set the parking brake, and if it isn't backed out enough, it will prevent you from pushing the piston sufficiently to put the new pads in.
There are two bolts in the caliper that capture the pads. Remove the bolts and pads. You can use one of the pads and a C-clamp to now push the piston in. Or, you may be able to push the piston in by hand.
While you have the caliper off, there is a bushing on the top and bottom that allows the caliper to self-center as the pads wear. They should move in and out of the caliper housing with a little resistance. It's a good idea to check them, and take them out and clean and lubricate them with a thin coat of anti-sieze and reinstall. If they have a lot of corrosion on them, you may want to replace.
It's also recommended that you bleed the brakes, as the brake fluid has a tendency to absorb moisture over time. As the fluid gets hot, the water will cause bubbles to form, and you'll loose stopping power. (Don't try to bleed the brakes until the pads and caliper have been reinstalled and bolted in over the rotor)
Install the new pads, and reinstall the caliper. The pad kit you bought from H-D should have new bolts to put in the caliper for the parking brake, so replace the bolt, running it in far enough so you feel it contacting the piston. Put the lever back on so that it is resting against the stop on the caliper in the fully released position, and put a new Ny-Lock nut on that should have come in the kit.
Now bleed the brake line. Keep bleeding until clear fluid flows, being sure you don't introduce air into the line.
When everything has been tightened to the proper torque, put the tire and lug nuts back on. Repeat for the right side.
Once you've got everything back together, back off the adjustment on the parking brake lever, and then set the brake. If the brakes don't hold when you push the bike, release the lever and tighten the adjustment. Repeat until the brakes hold the bike. Make sure you tighten the set screw the holds the lever adjustment in position.
You should then be good to go. Be sure to wash down any brake fluid that may have dripped, as it will ruin paint finishes.

1999 Yamaha Kodiak Front Disc Brake - Rebuilt master cylinder with new parts. Replaced orings on piston in front caliper and bleed brakes using new fluid. The piston will not retract. What is proble


The brake hose is clogged. When under pressure from applying breaks, the piston is forced tight to the rotor. When released the fluid will not return through the hose because there is no real pressure. Replace the hose.

Have installed new (rebuilt) calipers on '83 El Dorado. Parking brake doesn't work on passenger side. Had to use tool to press piston in far enough for installation on other side (driver) but this...


Your description gives me a suspicion the calipers weren't rebuilt to a very high standard.

The pistons don't turn as they are pushed out but mostly they have to be rotated or screwed and pressed in prior to fitting the pads.

Once fitted and bled ensure the caliper parking brake lever is hard against the backstop and then press the brake pedal hard a few times and the adjustment should be complete after removing any slack or free play from the parking brake cable.
With a new or quality rebuilt caliper a good parking brake should be obtained without needing to shorten the cable so the caliper levers are lifted from the backstops. That is the sort of compromise needed as the internal components become worn.

HARLEY- 02 DYNA WIDE GLIDE front brake bleeding problem master rebuilt caliper also lever builds preasure but when bike is started and moved the lever bottoms out NO BRAKES


Starting the bike has effect on the front brakes and I doubt moving the bike does either. The problem sounds like you're using an improper procedure to bleed the brakes.

First, fill the front master cylinder reservoir with the proper type of brake fluid. Then, bleed the master cylinder. Use this EXACT procedure. Squeeze the lever and hold it. Then loosen the line from the front master cylinder and allow the pressure to bleed off. Release the brake lever. Repeat this procedure again. Do not allow the master cylinder reservoir to run dry during any part of this bleeding process.

Then move to the caliper bleeder valve. Squeeze and hold the brake lever, open the bleeder valve and bleed off the pressure, close the valve, release the lever and allow the master cylinder to refill. Repeat until you get a full firm brake lever. Top of the master cylinder. Wait a few minutes and test the brakes.

If you cannot get anything to work out, look in the very bottom of the master cylinder reservoir and you'll two holes. One is relatively large and the other is very small. Using a small drill bit or a strand of wire, make sure the small hole is open. I've seen trash plug this hole and the brakes not work correctly. DO NOT MIX DIFFERENT TYPES OF BRAKE FLUID. The correct brake fluid to use is printed on top of the reservior top.

Make sure you test the brakes before riding the bike, improper brake servicing can lead to serious injury or death.

Good Luck
Steve

2006 Malibu Maxx - rotors were out of round.


In order to retract the pistons on the rear calipers you need to use a special tool that will rotate the piston in a clockwise direction.It may be possible to try to use a strong needle nose plier.Apply force against the U shaped slots on the piston and rotate clockwise until the piston bottoms out.Before you reinstall the caliper make sure that the recessed slots are at 12 and 6 "o"clock..the slots align with one or two bumps on the inside pad.
If you are having problems with your calipers rebuilt one are a good option.If only the caliper slide pins are sticking they can be cleaned and lubricated.Pin lubricant sometimes comes with a set of brake pads.Other than that lube may be purchased separately at an automotive supply store.

My front brake does not work at all when I pull it to engage. What could be the problem?


You have a hydraulic front brake. Check the fluid level in the brake cylinder at the handlebar. Add brake fluid and then put the cap back on the cylinder. Now bleed air out of the brake system > pump the lever 3 times & then hold the lever in. Now loosen the bleeder bolt on the wheel cylinder. All you want to do is let air out and whatever fluid comes with it. Now snug the bolt back in place. Repeat this process until you have no more air bubbles coming out when the bleeder is loosened. You should now have a firm brake.

Suzuki atv brake rebuild no pressure


Cylinders, lines and calipers must be bled thoroughly and in order.
Start with the master cylinder.
Break the line loose at the cylinder and tighten it firmly so you can loosen it easily.
pump the lever/pedal several times,(don't worry about pressure yet). Hold the lever/pedal down.
break the line loose slightly, just enough to release the pressure. Re-tighten the line and release the lever.
Repeat this procedure several times. (4-6)
Repeat this procedure at the line just above the caliper.
Finally repeat this procedure at the bleed screw.
This takes a while but will insure that all the air is out of the lines. It dosen't take much air to ruin a great brake job.
Good Luck

HOW TO BLEED FRONT BRAKE


Try gravity bleeding. Open bleed nipple and wait for steady dripping. After closing nipple, the lever doesn't have pressure, the cylinder at the lever is defective. It's a go- no go thing. Either it works or it doesn't. good luck
