Do you still have the bike ?

My 2006 SXV had the same problem I think. I would turn over & over but no firing ?

Don't give up - just get it to the Rocket Centre @ Blackburn. They fixed mine desp[ite my local dealer saying it was a new engine job. Very few dealers (in the North at least) have any idea how to fix an SXV

There is a new set of starting gears available FOC from prillia which will probably fix the problem straight away. Mine needed a new stator too and valve buckets which were compounding the problem but the whole thing cost me less than £100 thanks to the free upgrade from prillia.

give it a try - you won't be disappointed if you can get it going again

:o)

My aprilia sxv 450 no starting


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.
