NOTE If you remove one of the 30A fuses, this will reset the digital clock and the red line on zero. To reset these functions, see page 34 (MULTIFUNCTION COMPUTER).

Remove the fuses one by one and inspect the filament (9). If it is open, the fuse must be replaced.

Replace the blown fuse with the appropriate spare fuse or with a new fuse having the same amperage rating.

WARNING

If you replace the fuse and it blows again immediately, there is a serious problem with the electrical system of your vehicle. Do not attempt to continue using your vehicle. Take it to your Local aprilia Dealer for repair and service.

NOTE If you use the spare fuse, replaceit as soon as convenient.

(MAINTENANCE).

 

 

Your vehicle is equipped with a sealed maintenance-freebattery. Except for the tightness of the terminals, and required recharging, this battery does not require any other maintenance.

Check the tightness of the terminals after the first 600 mi (1,000 km) and thereafter every 4,650 mi (7,500 km) or 12 months.

WARNING

Batteries, when charged, give off h y d r o g e n g a s , w h i c h i s h i g h l y explosive. Therefore, do not smoke while working on or around the battery, and keep open flames or sparks away from the battery. Keep gasoline and other flammable substances well away from the battery, since a battery spark could easily ignite them and cause a devastating fire.

Since the battery gives off explosive hydrogen gas, especially when it is being charged, when you are charging a battery, make sure that the room is properly ventilated. Do not inhale the gases released during charging. Do not permit any open flames, sparks or cigarettes or any other source of heat anywhere near the battery while it is charging.

CAUTION

Never switch the battery cables . Observe the proper polarity of the battery. Incorrectly connections the battery to your vehicle will irreparably destroy the electrical system of your vehicle.

Connect and disconnect the battery only with the ignition switch (1) in the “” (OFF) position.

First connect the positive cable red (+), then the negative (–).

Disconnect the negative cable (–)first, then the positive red (+).

If your battery needs to be charged, use a constant voltage, or “taper” charger, with a current rating no greater than 1/10th the capacity of the battery (i.e., for a 50 amp hour battery, the maximum charging current should be 5 amps). Use of a more powerful charger cannot only damage the battery irreparably, but could cause it to overheat and explode.

BATTERY STORAGE

CAUTION

If this vehicle is not used for more than twenty days, remove the 30A fuses, see page 121 (CHANGING FUSES). This will prevent the discharge of the battery c a u s e d by t h e s l i g h t c u r r e n t consumption of the multifunction computer.

NOTE The removal of the 30A fuses will reset the digital clock and the red line setting to zero. To reset these functions, see page 34 (MULTIFUNCTION COMPUTER).

Carefully read page 123 (BATTERY).

If your vehicle is not used for more than a couple of weeks, it will be necessary to “trickle charge” the battery, to prevent b a t t e r y d a m a g e , s e e p a g e 1 2 5 (RECHARGING THE BATTERY).

Remove the battery, see page 125 (REMOVING THE BATTERY), and put it in a cool, dry place.

The best way to prevent battery deterioration is to constantly leave a “trickle” charger with a capacity of about 1/10th amp attached. These chargers are inexpensive and available from your Local aprilia Dealer, and will make sure that your battery always remains in tip top condition.

If this cannot be done, charge the battery for about 30 minutes using a battery charger with a current capacity no greater than 1/10th the capacity of the battery, see page 125 (RECHARGING THE BATTERY).

It is important to check the charge periodically (about once a month), during the winter or when the vehicle is not used, in order to prevent the deterioration of the battery.

Recharge it completely with a normal charge, see page 125 (RECHARGING THE BATTERY).

While we recommend removing the battery from the vehicle, if you must leave it in your vehicle, disconnect both battery cables.

CHECKING AND CLEANING THE TERMINALS

Carefully read page 123 (BATTERY).

Make sure that the ignition switch is in the “ ” (OFF) position.

Remove the rider seat, see page 108 (REMOVING THE RIDER SEAT). Remove the red rubber boot (1).

Make sure that the cable terminals (2) and the battery terminals (3) are:

in good condition (and not corroded or covered with deposits);

covered with neutral grease or Vaseline. If it is necessary to clean the battery terminals and the cable terminals:

Remove the battery, see page 125 (REMOVING THE BATTERY).

Brush the cable terminals (2) and the battery terminals (3) with a wire brush to eliminate any sign of corrosion.

Install the battery, see page 126 (INSTALLING THE BATTERY).

REMOVING THE BATTERY

CAUTION

When the battery is removed, the digital clock and red line setting will be reset to zero. See page 34 (MULTIFUNCTION COMPUTER) for instructions on how to set clock and red line.

Read page 96 (BATTERY) carefully.

Make sure the ignition switch is in the "" position.

Remove the rider seat, see page 108 (REMOVING THE RIDER SEAT). Loosen and remove the negative (-)terminal screw (1).

Slide the negative lead (2) aside. Lift the red protective cap (3).

Loosen and remove the positive (+) terminal screw (4).

Slide the positive lead (5) aside. Loosen and remove the two screws (6). Remove the battery retaining bracket

(7).

Grasp the battery (8) firmly and lift it out of its mount.

CAUTION

Once it has been removed, store the battery in a safe place and keep it away from children. Even a completely sealed, maintenance-freebattery can be an injury hazard.

Place the battery on a level surface, in a cool, dry place.

Refit the rider seat, see page 108 (REMOVING THE RIDER SEAT).

NOTE To reinstall the battery, see page 126 (INSTALLING THE BATTERY).

CHECKING

THE ELECTROLYTE LEVEL

Carefully read page 123 (BATTERY).

Your vehicle is equipped with a sealed maintenance-freebattery that does not require checking of the battery level.

RECHARGING THE BATTERY

Carefully read page 123 (BATTERY).

WARNING

This battery is completely sealed. Do not attempt to remove the caps.

There is never any need to add water to this battery. Attempting to remove the caps will destroy the battery and could lead to injury through the spillage of caustic electrolyte. Recharge the battery according to the table below.

Remove the battery, see page 125 (REMOVING THE BATTERY).

WARNING

The battery gives off noxious and explosive gases; keep it away from flames, sparks, cigarettes and any other source of heat.

During recharging or use, make sure that the room is properly ventilated and avoid inhaling the gases released during the recharging.

Connect the battery charger to the battery.

Set the charger for the desired type of recharge (see table).

Charge the battery using a battery charger with a current capacity of no greater than 1/10th the capacity of the battery, see page 137 (TECHNICAL DATA).
