Aprilia Motorcycles - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
I have a Aprillia peguso that does not want to start at all,suffient petrol and spark,what can the problem be
I need a little more information:-
Has the engine been apart recently?
Has the ignition timing been altered?
Have you checked for compression?
Have you got the correct fuel in the tank? (If the bike has been standing for some time, drain the fuel and put fresh fuel in it).
Assuming you have good compression, check that the spark is occurring at the correct time before Top Dead Centre (TDC).
After trying to start it, take the spark plug out and see if it is wet with fuel, or dry. this will show if fuel is getting into the cylinder.
Check for blockage in the air intake and condition of the filter. Check for blocked exhaust system. Off-road bikes can get very muddy!
If all these checks are fine, time to look at the carburettor. Water in the carburettor can be an issue, some carburettors have a fuel drain on the float chamber others you have to take the float bowl off. If you can, take the float bowl off, turn the fuel off first at the tank, and inspect the condition of the inside of the bowl. Clean out the bowl and blow through any air holes and jets. Check the float shuts off the fuel. Using minimum pressure lift the float up and turn the fuel back on. Fuel should flow past the float valve when you release the float slightly and shut off when the float is lifted again. If it does not shut off completely, you will need to remove the carburettor for a thorough cleaning. Hope this helps a little.
Will not start Aprilia Mojito Custom
OK< can you provide more details? Does it turn over? Does it fire at all? Do you know if you have a spark? Do you know if fuel is getting through? Has it run properly recently?
To run, a motor needs fuel, air and spark
Inspect all fuel lines and wires. Pull the sparkplug and see if it is burnt/wet/corroded

Sxv 550 wont start
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
What is 6k maintenance?
- 15 Point Check
- Change Engine Oil
- Replace Oil Filter
- Top Off Fluid Levels
- Lube Chassis
- Adjust Tire Pressure
- Check Spare if accessable
- Rotate Tires *
Turn the key on, hold the clutch in and push the start button!
I have installed a new ignition on y aprillia pegaso 2008 and it wont accept the code numbers
It's not the new switch, it's the new keys that have to be programmed.
The keys have uniquely coded chips in them, when you turn on the ECU uses the antenna that is by the ignition switch to look for a code that it recognises, you need to introduce the new key codes to the ECU.
This is what the manual says:
In case of installation of a new ignition switch the procedure is as follows:
Turn ON using new key
The dashboard will not recognise the key and will ask for the customer code: insert the customer code. It is 00000 when supplied. It can be changed to any numeric five digit number.
Now you can enter: MENU, DIAGNOSIS (insert the service code 25973),
Then select MODIFY KEYS and implement the procedure.
If you are not sure about the mode switch, this is what you do:
Use handlebar "mode" switch (left / right) to select "Menu" option on the screen, then press mode switch in to enter.
Use handlebar "mode" switch to select "Diagnosis", press to enter.
Use handlebar "mode" switch to enter the workshop code (25973).
When you have selected the digit you want then press in and it will move to the next digit etc.
You can't screw anything up, if you do it wrong go back or turn off and start again.
