Question about 2000 Aprilia RSV Mille SP
I have a 2002 RSV R1000. When the bike is started cold, the bottom cylinder fires but the top doesn't or misfires for the first 5 to 10 seconds. During this period the engine not only runs roughly but also makes a metalic clunking sound.
The top cylinder is week and runs lean at idle at any engine temperature. With the throttle open both cylinders perform equally well.
The engine is mechanically sound and has only 4500 kms on it.
I suspect a wiring problem from one of the sensors but I can't locate the problem.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: Bike won't rev up
Take out the exhaust canister from the cylinder and check the exhaust port.It may be jammed from burned oil.Clean it very carefully by scratching it with a bended flat screw driver but don't scar the piston.While you are in there move the piston up and down to check for scratches.Also make sure the exhaust reed valve is working properly

has the bike been serviced recently if so were the valve clearenes checked if not when were they last done i take it you have checked the obvious such as plugs and air filter if the plugs and filter are good i would get the valve clearences checked because this can cause poor cold starting and general perfomance hope this helps
