Question about 1998 Aprilia Moto 6,5
I have a 1999 Moto 6.5 with a carb problem. As there are so few Aprilia's around the chance of a secondhand carb is unlikely. Does the BMW F650 use the same carb? I know the Pegaso carb cannot be used (although the needle fits) as it is a twin carb.The Carb is a Mikuni BST 40 and it may be used in the F650 but I am not sure. It really depends what the problem is but I am sure most can be fixed by checking and cleaning the carb. Mine had a problem recently with cutting off when I pulled the throttle and the problem was water in the carb. It came from the tank infill breather tube that was blocked at the bottom of the tank. After drilling through the alu connector and cleaning the carb (cost me £57) the problem had gone and its running fine now. Also make a google search on MOTO 6.5 and you will find very helpful info (mostly in german) on a number of websites. ,
