Question about 2002 Aprilia RSV Mille

1 Answer

Where is this supposed to mount too?

Ok...since I have owned this bike I never had this part mounted to anything. It was actually attached with a spring to the exhaust before. Can someone give me a picture of what this looks like? And does someone have a spare one for me??

There is a black plastic bracket that wraps around the inside of the pipe and that piece above bolts to it holding everything in place.

I have a bad vibration on my 94 fxdlonly6 when i am slowing down or at a certain rpm but it is totally fine at a steadypace or when accelerating

Ok, the Dyna series bikes have rubber mounted engines but the mounts have a tendency to only absorb the higher frequency vibrations. When the engine is idling or running at RPM's lower than about 2000, you can feel the engine vibrations. I have a 1994 FXDWG and it does the same thing. This is normal for all engines with rubber motor mounts. However, since the bike has quite a number of years on it, it would be a good idea to check the mounts and the stabilizers to see if they might need replacement.

Good Luck

Hi! I need the assembly instructions to assemble a new unassembled 2010 Suzuki Haojue AX100 motorcycle. Were can I get assembly instructions for this motorcycle, or can you find these for me???

It ain't rocket science. Have the dealer put acid in the battery so it is ready to go into the frame pocket. It should come out of the crate with the rear wheel already mounted. The controls on the handlebars should already be mounted as well. Put the handlebars in position and bolt them in place. Put a box, or whatever you have, underneath the frame to get the front forks higher than the axle on the front wheel. Now put the front wheel assembly in place and insert the front axle. Add the washers and nut and tighten the nut. If the bike has headlights, remove the glass bulb assembly and hook up all the wires. Match the color coded wires; Black to black, blue/white to blue/white, green to green and so on. Mount the shift and rear brake levers if not already mounted. Ad fenders and turn signals and whatever else needs mounting. Install the battery, red wire to the positive battery terminal, black wire to the negative terminal. Now put some gas in the tank and turn on the gas petcock at the bottom of the gas tank. Note; some bikes do not have an actual valve for the gas. Turn the key on and watch for smoke from the wiring. If you hook the wires up wrong they can burn. If all is well, ( relax, all should be well ), go ahead and kick start the engine. Again, watch for anything odd. Now re-mount the headlight assembly and go for a test ride. Adjust the clutch and brake levers as needed. All done! You may want to ride over to the dealers and let them look at it just to be sure all looks okay.

2005 dyna wide glide...fuel injected...have engine vibration during is smooth free wheeling at 70 mph...vibration returns with engine speed...need help

I'd check the motor mounts. The front mount is easy to get to but the rear isn't quite so easy. I'd check the front mount and the top engine stabilzer.

I assume that you've owned this bike long enough to know how it should feel. The Dyna series has rubber engine mounts. They do a very good job of dampening engine vibration once the engine gets up in it's rpm range. When the engine is idling, the vibrations can be felt then. When accelerating, you can feel some vibration but it should be bad.

Check your engine mounts and your primary chain adjustment. If it's something to do with the fuel system, I'm afraid that a dealer is going to have to check that for you. Good Luck!

The carbs should be synchronized every 20k miles. If you are having a roughness in idle then I would recommend the carbs being synched. If the problem is at higher RPM's I'd check to see if the motor has a harmonic dampener that can be adjusted. This often resolves vibration issues. I'm just not sure if this bike has one. These big bikes usually have some sort of adjustable dampening device internally.
I'd also like to have you check the motor mounts. This is a common problem if your bike has any rubber in the motor mounts. The rubber wears or even breaks and you often cannot see it until you actually try to remove the mount. Often they will fall apart in your hands.
These big motors all vibrate a bit so many of the manufacturers have realized that adding modified motor mounts is helpful.

Mounting 620 tires

I mount my own with spoons on my 620. Wrapped a little tape around them to protect the black paint. Didn't worry about the balance, at the speed I travel it was no issue. Have also spooned them on my DRZ400SM. I assume from your log on you are a porschephile, my winter beater 951 turboS just came out of hypernation yesterday. Had been commuting every day since late april in my bikes but when it hit freezing that was below my limit. bill

As per what Sev first said.... check all nuts and bolts. Not just the seat/sissy bar mounts, all the engine mounts, swingarm pivots, wheels, calipers, covers, bars, pegs, clamps.... everything. But most obviously the engine mounts, a loose or busted engine mount can make all sorts of odd things vibrate. While you're checking them out, make sure that any mounting plates or braces are not cracked, and that the bolts haven't stretched and are being torqued against their own threads, instead of the mounting hardware.
