slow rider

I just completed a 6150 mile ride 16 days my 2014 capo. used 1 qt. of oil the side stand pivot nut went missing, the left fork oil seal is leaking the left brake caliper and brake pads wet with oil, repair parts are on order ( note ) I'm now on my forth fuel gage. Other than those minor things the trip was good the bike preformed well, also above 7500 ft. the fuel delivery system needs to be a bit leaner.

Cheers Slowrider, it's a shame your Capo has given you some remedial work to do.

Mine must like me as it has not jetisoned anything (I Loctited the usual suspects) nor leaked oil onto brake pads.

Although, it isn't totally perfect.......my muffler power valve spring looks like it has given up after 31,000kms of heat and is allowing the valve shaft to tap sideways a little......just to keep me amused?

The service guys are checking with Aprilia in case there is any re-call or warranty info (bike works as normal but just has a 'new' rattle on cold startup).

Hope your Capo gets the little gremlins fixed and behaves itself on the next 6,000mle trip!
