Question about 2003 Aprilia Tuono 1000
I just picked my new Tuono 2007.5 and on the second ride 190 miles on bike used the front brake and it locked up. I fell at about 50 mph. It was a complete surprise to me. I have been riding all of my life and this was my first time down. I had no Idea what had happened. The Left front brake caliper bolt had come out allowing the rotor to push up and twist the caliper into a bind. I am up and around now called the dealer; they sent a guy to pick up the bike to see what they can do for me. I will repost when I see what the dealer and Aprilia will do for me. Check your brake mount before riding. Just came back from the dealer. I just came back from the dealer and was told this cannot happen because the there is a flange that seats into the mount from the caliper and prevents twisting. So we took one apart and there in not any flange just the caliper that fits flush against the mount and can and did twist and bind. I am sad because I like the owner and the dealer and am surprised they are trying to weasel out of this. I should know in a couple of days if they are willing to fix my bike. I really don’t want to go the attorney route but this is hard to let go. I will post the results Now go toque down your calipers. Thanks all
Looks as if it was not PDI'd properly. I would be looking to the dealer to put it right
