Hey how ya going im a apprentice motorbike mechanic what ive found with these temperamental buckets is that sometimes if you dont have the clutch pushrod on the actual clutch case adjusted properly the activation arm goes past its throw and pushes on the inner race od the bearing and breaks it so get a new cable new pressure plate and adjust properly i adjust it be screwing till i feel the resistance then back of 1/4 turn to 1/2 turn i hope this helps thanks heaps guys.

If your not tensioning them properly and evenly they will do that

have you also replaced the springs?

you really need the manual to do this if you are not familliar with the procedure.

Aprilia RS 125 Power Loss


I guess youwillhaveto adjust the clutch cable so as to open the plates more at the pressure plates to let the clutch plate rotate freely instead of binding thus the low rpm.
Hope this helps!

Takes off ok but change gear and theres nothin there,cuts out. ticks over nicely but just wont go after a few yards.. 51 plate rs125cc aprilia 2 stroke


Sounds like you lost a gear or broke some synchros in the trans box check all your options first
check all the clutch plates and steels make sure one is not shattred that can be a simple DIY

Just changed my gear box oil on my aprilia rs 125 2000 model and my clutch is sleeping how do i fix this and how much will it cocst thanks josh


i sure hope you didn't use car oil but bought motorcycle oil. The clutch is a wet-type system that uses engine oil to keep it cool. Motorcycle oil is formulated differently than car oil, which has detergents in it to add lubrication and engine life that will cause a motorcycle's clutch to slip. A new clutch is both inexpensive and easy to replace. When you buy a new clutch, don't forget the clutch cover gasket. i recommend EBC clutches.
1. Set up a little pan with MOTORCYCLE oil in it and place the new clutch discs and pressure plates in it so that they get well-covered with clean oil.
2. Drain the oil, remove the clutch cover and remove the bolts on the cover of the clutch basket.
3. Remove the old clutch parts and make sure you pay attention to what the last part is (disc or pressure plate).
4. Install the new clutch, starting with the last part you removed and alternate between the discs and pressure plates until you run out.
5. Reinstall the clutch basket's cover plate and re-torque the bolts to the specified setting, using a cross-sequence like you would on a wheel.
6. Clean all the old gasket off, install the clutch cove and new gasket and fill up your engine with oil.
7. Ride away happy because you just changed your first clutch!

Hope this helps,
matt

My 1999 Aprilia rs125, No clutch.


Nope. Pressure plates use mechanical springs which don't fail with this symptom. It's your pressure cylinders for the clutch fluid. Either the main cylinder that is activated when you squeeze the lever or the slave cylinder that moves when fluid is displaced from the main cylinder. Check the fluid level in the small tank usually located on the handle bar and connected to the lever housing. No fluid = source of problem. Refill with the proper fluid. However, if the fluid has gotten very low, you may have gotten air into the fluid line and will need to "bleed" the system to restore good lever pressure and clutch function. Buy a repair manual...Chilton, Clymer, etc.. for your bike for details.
