I am also a proud owner of a moto 6.5 since a year now and live in London UK. I picked her up from a service and MOT last week and she suddenly develops problems (that they noticed in the workshop already): She had intermittend problems accelerating which I thought is either the ignition or the carburetor. Now it has gone worse to an extent that I can't drive her anymore. She is starting up and most of the time happy to run on idle speed. As soon as I turn the throttle to rev she stops running with a 'backfiring' noise into the airfilter box. I don't know your technical knowledge but you may have had the same problem before. I think it must have to do with the carburettor. It would be great if you could help. Also, do you know of an aftermarket clutch lever I can buy, since some idiot kicked her over last night and the thing has broken off including the left indicator. As you can imagine I am not in the best mood about all this in particular after spending over £500 for service , a new headlamp and having to repair the (leaking) radiator. ,First of all, mail me in the future, at h.damoiseaux@tiscali.nl I've had the same problem indeed... It has cost me about 275 pounds to get it fixed... I've brought the Moto to a motor-shop which was specialized in single cylinders, tuning and off the road bikes. The technician reported that it was a combination off: *the o-rings in the chamber of the carburetor... *a leaking carburetor-hose (there was some air coming into the carb.) *and an adjustement-problem... But i'll have to be honest with you: She still doesn't run as good as she did before. it takes about 15 to 25 kilometers before i can close the choke completely (used to be 5-10 kilometers) and she still somewhat hesitates in accepting acceleration. On top of this, i believe she overheats a little... In my opinion, the valves could be the problem too, so I think that i will go to an Aprilia service point to get the valves adjusted. (tricky to do it yourself, 5 valves, radial) Wolfgang, if you can read German, there is a extraordinary site for you: http://home.snafu.de/grabo/aprilia/index.html There is a truckload on information at this site, look for yourself,,,

Fuel pump does not start and spark plugs does not produce spark


I would first check with a voltmeter for the correct voltage to the fuel pump. Or I would hook up an external 6 or 12 volt (depending on the required voltage) to the fuel pump and see if gas is pumping to the carburetor. If you see gas or if you then hear the fuel pumping, I would then try start the motor with the external voltage still connected, then disconnect it and see if the motor keeps running. If it stops after you disconnect the external voltage, then you check the source of your voltage. It could be a corroded or broken wire or an open fuse up underneath somewhere.

Moto 6


5I have recently purchased an Aprilia Moto 6.5. It is a rare bike here in New Zealand is it possible to get a manual for this bike anywhere? The bike had been in storage for a couple of years and the odometer is only 7000 miles (11,000 km). It backfires when you throttle off. I've adjusted the mixture to run richer, but it has started doing it again, is there anything special that i should be doing with the carburetor (Mikuni BST-40)?,There is a manual in the downloads section. Here is the link: http://www.pro-bike.ro/forums/index.php?au...mp;showfile=857,,,
