Question about 1992 Aprilia Europe 125
For those of you who were interested in the outcome... all the exhaust valves had a clearance of 0.010
And all of the intake valves had a clearance of 0.006. Each measurement was recorded when the feeler would go in with a little effort and I could feel it grab on the way back out. The next size feeler (0.011 and o.007) could not be inserted. All measurements were within spec. For anyone attempting to do this themselves it wans't too difficult. The biggest problem was removing enough to easilly get at the cams! I removed both front side panels the left side panel the tank, the airbox, and the bracket at the very front of the compartment that routes the throttle cables and holds some electical doohickies.... I also disconnected the throttle cables to make room to remove the front valve cover. Only one bolt was difficult to get to, the front left one on the front cylinder. I was able to loosen it from the front of the bike (through the gap between the radiator and the frame) and then remove it from the top like all the others. I was able to get the cams in the correct position by putting the bike in top gear and rotating the rear wheel (thanks Ian). Everything buttoned up pretty easilly, except the airboox. I first connected all the hoses and then tried to get it in the right place; no go... I then pulled the hoses back off and loosened the front bracket and got her into place with only minor effort. We went for a ride and all is well. I'm definitely glad I did it. I feel so much closer to her now....,I had 9700 on the clock. Almost all of my miles are commuting, but I've got a good mix of backroads and superslab... As far as riding style, I'm a gentle rider. I mostly shift around 5k rpm and only rarely bring it up to redline. I'm always amazed at how much I can enjoy riding without really pushing it! With that said, last night I had a minor accident on the way home.... The results of that I'll post in another thread.,,,
