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.

I am not getting any shock action on the rear of my 2000 Lesabre. The rear of the car gets unstable when hitting bumps; like driving a hardtail. The problem came on suddenly after not driving it for about...

Your Buick LeSabre may have air shocks on the rear. Check the shocks for leakage or stains from previous leaking. If the shocks are leaking you'll need to replace the set. Don't replace only one shock-replace them both.

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
