No, the rev limiter resets to 6000 rpms when the battery goes dead or is changed. You have to reprogram the rev limiter to allow it to rev to 11,500 or more, but i am sorry to say that i can't recall the sequencevof buttons to reset it, which shold be in your owners manual. This is not an upshift light!

It has a shift light built in so it blinks to tell you to shift.

surely the bike is fuel injected, which might mean the fuel pump is playing up , which could be a pressure sensor in the system, you might need to get the computor scanned to see whats faulty

If is runs better with full choke, then the bike is lean, check for air leaks at the carb manifold, vacumn cracked hoses, non standard exhausts, perhaps the mufflers have rusted out while sitting

Bike wont go past 10,000 rpms. power just shuts out.


These bikes have rev limiters to keep you from blowing the motor. they are supposed to do just that, shut power off if you rev the engine too hard. Usually it cuts out and re-starts very rapidly and you get sort of a Vroom, Vroom , Vroom sound that lets you know you are reving it too much. If you continue to push the motor it will shut power off. 10,000 rpm is a lot of rpm and this could cause major issues with the motor. you don't want a piston to come loose at this rpm!

i dont think its rev box.(rev box just keeps engine from reving over a certain rpm) could be bad gas or water in gas, also have you checked those valve clearances lately?? 0.003--0.004 on filler gage

Won't start without charger on battery.


when you charge the battery make sure that its cable is is loosen from the motor coz it can damage your charging system. on your case you have damage it already that's your light dims whenever you rev the rpm up. so change your voltage regulator of your charging system, charge the battery and it is done easy.

Charging problem


stopped for lunch back on bike it started fine. About 20km later I heard the engine revs on my speakers running autocom of the bike the speedometer started going mad jumping from 30km/h to 220km/m, all over the place. The last time this happened was in France and the bike did not start again, battery was flat, bike shipped back to Ireland. Back in Ireland the dealer kept it for few days, battery was fine just needed to be charged, could find no other problem with the bike. While this time I rode straight to the dealer, about 20km away. When I stopped the bike was dead, no power. They did a test and said the regulator is faulty. Was waiting for new one from Aprilia but it did not arrive today so they took one from a new bike. The bike is charging when reved but does not want to charge at idle so they need to go fishing for the fault. It now also seem my clocks are broken as a result of al of this. ,Check to make sure that all of the chassis grounds are free of corrosion and properly connected. I have never had an issue with charging at temperatures ranging from below zero into the mid/high thirties (Celcius). Even at low speed you will be turning 3000-4000 RPM which should have the charging voltage between 14-14.5 V. Put a multi meter on it and see what voltages you are getting at different RPM's,,,
