Service manual

They no longer allow the manual for this bike to be downloaded for free. I thought this was weird since I have a 08 Tuono and there are a ton of free manuals to be found. You can get one of those since the RSV has the same engine and most of the same electronics or I've found a RSV manual download for pretty cheap here: is a great source for all things Aprilia and are the best at Aprilia in the U.S.. They have hard copies of the manuals in stock as well as an awesome troubleshooting section.

Hi there. To upgrade your old rear shock is a good idea, however very expensive. Makers like Koni, and Ohlins, will have a rear shock to fit your bike, but unless your willing to part with about $1000, then considermy second solution. Have your old rear shock re built, or re furbished, by a qualified suspension mechanic, for a fraction of the cost. It is also possible to customise, and taylor your old shocky to suit you. Example,shorten the spring?, add a spacer to stiffen it up a bit, less oil, or more oil?
I would look into a rebuild first, unless, like i say, you are prepared to spend about $1000 plus.
Anything you choose, will definately enhance your bike.
Good luck

88 xr250 rear shock leaking oil

It is normal for it to leak a little bit. If it is a pretty bad leak then replace the seal. Very easy to do once you get it off your bike, from now on dont lay your bike on its side unless you have to lay it down for a accident, other wise set it on blocks or what ever but try not to lay it on its side cause it can cause you to have other major problems that you do not want to hassle with
