MAIN COMPONENTS

FUEL

WARNING

Gasoline is extremely flammable and in some conditions can become explosive. Therefore, it is necessary to refuel and carry out maintenance operations involving the fuel system in a wellventilated area with the engine off.

Do not refuel or perform any maintenance on the fuel system with the engine running.

Do not smoke while refueling or near fuel vapors.

Never allow any portion of the fuel system to come in contact with open flames, sparks or other heat sources. Be careful to avoid spilling fuel when you are refueling. Spilled fuel could ignite when it comes in contact with hot engine or exhaust system surfaces. If you accidentally spill some fuel, make sure that it is wiped up or completely evaporated before starting the vehicle.

Since gasoline expands in the fuel tank when the vehicle is sitting in the open sun, never fill the tank completely to the rim. Leave at least one inch of expansion space.

Avoid any contact of the fuel with your skin, and avoid inhalation of fuel vapors. Never attempt to siphon fuel from one container to another using your mouth as suction for a siphon hose.

WARNING

G a s o l i n e i s p o i s o n o u s a n d carcinogenic and contains chemical substances that cause birth defects and o t h e r r e p r o d u c t i v e p r o b l e m s . I f gasoline should be accidentally spilled on the skin or clothes, immediately wash it off with soap and water and change clothes.

Should gasoline accidentally come in contact with your eyes, flush with a large quantity of water and immediately seek medical attention. Should you accidentally get gasoline in your mouth, do not induce vomiting. Drink a large quantity of milk or clear water and immediately seek medical attention.

Never try to siphon gasoline by using your mouth. Use a manual pump or a similar system.

If your vehicle overturns, it will leak gasoline which is extremely flammable. Flames or sparks may ignite it, causing not only the destruction of the vehicle but also possible serious damage to surrounding property and serious injuries or even death.

ALWAYS KEEP GASOLINE AWAY FROM CHILDREN.

DISPOSE OF UNWANTED GASOLINE PROPERLY, DO NOT DUMP IT INTO STORM SEWERS OR INTO SINKS OR TOILETS.

Use only unleaded gasoline minimum octane rating (M+R)/2 method 90.

FUEL TANK CAPACITY

(reserve included): 4.62 US gal (17,5 b ).

TANK RESERVE: 1.19 ± 0.26 US gal (4.5

± 1 b ).

REFUEL

To refuel, proceed as follows:

uPlace the vehicle on the stand, see page 77 (PLACING THE VEHICLE ON THE STAND).

CAUTION

If dirt has accumulated on or around the fuel filler cap, wipe the cap and the area around the cap with a clean cloth. Prevent any foreign material from getting into the fuel tank, as this could lead to serious engine damage.

use and maintenance TUONO 1000 USA 47

uLift the little cover (1).

uInsert the key (2) in the cap lock (3).

uTurn the key (2) clockwise, pull it and open the fuel filler cap (4).

CAUTION

If you use a container or funnel for refueling, make sure that it is perfectly clean.

Any foreign matter getting into the fuel tank may lead to severe damage.

WARNING

Do not add any additives or other substances to the gasoline.

WARNING

Do not fill the tank completely. The fuel should never be higher than the bottom of the rim of the filler neck.

u Refuel.

When refueling operations are completed:

WARNING

After refueling, replace the fuel filler cap

(4) in the correct position.

NOTE It is impossible to close the fuel filler cap without the key.

uWith the key (2) inserted in the lock (3) close the fuel filler cap (4) rotate the key counterclockwise and push it.

uRelease the key (2). At this point the fuel filler cap (4) is closed.

WARNING

Make sure that the fuel filler cap (4) is properly closed.

uExtract the key (2).

uClose the little cover (1).

LUBRICANTS

WARNING

Proper vehicle lubrication is critical to safe operation. Failure to maintain proper lubricant levels or to use the proper type of clean, new lubricant, can lead to an engine or transmission seizure, which can result in accidents, serious injury or death.

48 use and maintenanceTUONO 1000 USA

WARNING

Use latex gloves for the maintenance operations that require contact with used oil. Prolonged or repeated contact with used engine oil may cause skin cancer. Although this is unlikely unless you handle used oil on a daily basis, it is advisable to thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water after handling used oil.

KEEP OIL AWAY FROM CHILDREN.

DISPOSE OF OIL PROPERLY.

CAUTION

Be very careful not to spill oil when putting oil in your vehicle. Clean up any spilled oil immediately because oil can damage the finish of your vehicle. Also, oil on the tires creates an extremely slippery and therefore dangerous situation.

CAUTION

In case of oil leakage do not ride your vehicle. Before using the vehicle, have it repaired by your Local aprilia Dealer.

LAP

MPH

ENGINE OIL

WARNING

If the engine oil pressure warning light “” (1) remains on after the engine has started, or if it comes on while you are riding your vehicle, this means that the oil system is not developing sufficient pressure. In this case, immediately stop the engine and contact your Local aprilia Dealer. Failure to observe this warning can lead to engine seizure, upset, and serious injury or even death.

CAUTION

Reduce the service intervals by half when the vehicle is used in rainy or dusty conditions, on rough roads or for racing.

Check the engine oil level every 300 mi (500 km), see page 89 (CHECKING THE ENGINE OIL LEVEL AND TOPPING UP) .

CAUTION

Have your Local aprilia Dealer change the engine oil after the first 600 mi (1,000 km), and thereafter every 4,650 mi (7,500 km) or every 2,300 mi (3,750 k m ) i f y o u u s e y o u r v e h i c l e f o r competition.

BRAKES

WARNING

Do not ride your vehicle with worn or malfunctioning brakes! The brakes are the most important safety system of your vehicle, and using the bike with brakes that are anything less than perfect is very likely to lead to a collision or upset, with consequent risk of serious injury or death.

Check the brake pad wear, as shown on page 97 (CHECKING THE BRAKE PAD WEAR). Have your brakes serviced by your Local aprilia Dealer.

WARNING

Wet conditions seriously degrade the performance of your brakes. When the road is wet from rain, you should plan to use double the normal stopping distances since both the brakes themselves and the traction of the tires o n t h e r o a d a r e r e d u c e d b y t h e presence of water.

Water on the brakes from washing your vehicle, or splashed up from wet roads, or crossing puddles or ditches, can wet the brakes enough to greatly reduce their effectiveness. Failure to observe these warnings may lead to serious accidents and result in serious injury or even death.

NOTE Your vehicle is equipped with disc brakes and two separate brake systems.

The front brake system is equipped with two discs, one on the right and one on the left side of the front wheel.

The rear brake system is equipped with a single disc on the right side of the rear wheel.

The following information refers to a single braking system, but applies to both braking systems.

WARNING

The brakes are extremely important for your safety. Do not use the vehicle if the brakes are not in perfect working c o n d i t i o n . A l w a y s c h e c k b r a k e efficiency before riding.

WARNING

If the “feel” or position of the brake lever changes, this may be due to problems in the hydraulic brake system.

If you have any doubt regarding the perfect functioning of your brake system, or if the normal pre-ridechecks indicate any discrepancy, contact your Local aprilia Dealer before riding.

WARNING

Pay special attention to the brake disc and friction material, making sure that they are neither dirty nor oily, especially after maintenance operations or inspections.

Check the brake line, make sure that it is neither twisted, kinked nor leaking.

KEEP BRAKE FLUID AWAY FROM CHILDREN.
