First and most important is to use a motorcycle oil..not car oil.they have different additive packages.
Semi synthetic (synthetic blend) is more than adequate..you dont need full synthetic.!!.
I use spectro semi sync 10w40 in both my rsv"s and my triumph and my ducati..never had a problem change every 5000 k,I know loads of hard riders ( as i worked in a few bike shops) who use semi sync spectro for race and road..
Off course there will be experts who will tell you different but you just dont need full synthetic..trust me..

For the best results use a full synthetic oil - not a synthetic blend. When you change oil filters add an Engine Sentry to the filter.,,

Hi Anonymous, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix/test or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

Aprilia RSV service reset


Hi, Anonymous here is how to reset/adjust Engine Service Interval (Wrench icon)
Upon selecting this item, there are two possibilities. If the Wrench icon is active, you will have the opportunity to clear it--proceed directly below. If the Wrench icon is not active, then skip over the next section to "CHANGE ENGINE SERVICE INTERVAL".RESET WRENCH ICON:
1. The display shows CLEAr and no.
2. Press and release SCROLL to alternate between no and yES.
3. Select yES if you wish to reset the wrench icon.
4. Press and hold SCROLL for 4 seconds.
5. WS appears in the display.
6. Release SCROLL.
If you selected no, you will not proceed to the next section; the display will revert to the Service Setup Menu.
CHANGE ENGINE SERVICE INTERVAL:
To get to this point, the Wrench icon must not be active or you just now reset it, as above.
1. The display now shows either CLK or km/h (or Mph).
2. The display now shows the number of hours between Wrench icon reminders. The factory setting is "0044".
3.The 2nd digit of the hours value will be blinking:
In addition, the display also shows the Oil Can icon above the word "OIL", and the "CLK" indicator is present. The presence of "CLK" indicates the interval occurs based on time (this can be altered for the Wrench icon, but not for the Oil Can icon).
For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day

How to check the oil level on aprilia rsv 1000, 2001


Look on the left side fairing, there's a small hole right next to the big hole for the air blowing off the radiator fan. The small hole has a white background, that background is the oil resevoir, and the correct amount is half full. You should check it with a cold engine and the bike upright.
