Question about 2008 Aprilia SX 125

1 Answer

I have a 2008 aprilia sx 125, couple of problems iam having is trying to reset the service light, i have just given the bike a full service but dont know how to reset the service light. Another problem iam having is that the bike seems to splutter a lot untill it hits about 6000rpm and then its ok, i was thinking carbs may be clogged up or something wrong with the power valve? Also what things should i look for if its a fully de-restricted model? I bought it described as a fully de-restricted model but it isnt as fast as i was expecting.

SOURCE: de-restrict an aprilia rs 125

You shouldn't have to restrictions only happen on faster bikes 600cc onwards but if you talking about the inabilty to push your revs to the very max, I wouldn't do this unless you know what you doing, and by you asking this question, you don't know what u doing, this rev restriction is set in place for safety of your engine, rather than restricting speed.,,,

SOURCE: spluttering in mid revs.

Hi ....... The excuses you've been given might hold up either in Oz or tibet but as you say in Ireland it doesn't quite hold water.
Has anyone changed anything ? Pipe, airfilter, ignition ? The fact it takes off in the powerband show it's either not too bad or you've been luckey not to hole a piston. Try removing the spark plugs and note the colour, any colour other than a light tan is NOT correct and indicates fuel mixture as too lean/white (too much air) or rich/black (too much petrol). Too rich is preferable to too lean as being lean will hole a piston, burn out a valve or a partial/full seizure. Dependant on colour I'd then LOWER the circlip on the carb needle.
Let me know how you get on.

Hi, Dunhills and the usual suspects are:
1. Extremely lean fuel mixture.
2. Dirt, rust, water, or ethanol sludge in the fuel system.
3. Sticky throttle cables.
4. Multiple carburetors not in synchronization.
5. TPS sensor out of adjustment or faulty.
6. Wrong spark plugs for the type of service.
7. Throttle bodies not in synchronization (FI)
8. Faulty O2 sensor.
9. Clogged, stuck, or faulty IAC valve.
10. Aftermarket components not compatible with ECM.
