Had more time to spend on the Max yearly service today and am nearing completion!
Zapped the wheels off as I have brand new Mitas MC16 tires and aluminium valve stems witing to go on.

Front wheel needs a 19mm Zap


Rear wheel takes a 24mm Zap while holding the rear brake!


To get the rear wheel off as easily as possible the caliper and pipe need to come off. Nice that Aprilia Made access to the bolts easy, you can see the T handle fits under the airbox to access the top bolt.


Pipe off and wheel is ready to come off


Caliper set aside.


Needed to use something to hold up the front end after taking off the wheel, so the Bats box settles in



Wheels off and new tires and stems ready!


FYI, it’s reccomended to replace deez nutz that hold on the front and rear wheel after removal so I called my local Aprilia dealer to order.


Mounted the tire, installed the aluminum valve stem, and gave it a wipe down. Looks like new!


With the help of my son to lend a couple hands, I reinstalled the front wheel and new tire sans the nut.


With the rear wheel removed it was time to change the gear oil.


Drain bolt is so much easier to access with the rear wheel removed!


So is the fill hole and dipstick!


Original oil still looks ok!


Old oil out



Although the manual calls for 75/90 I’m going with some authentic racing oil from Honda 80/85W


Poured in exactly the same OZ’s as I drained out and checked the level after filled.


All done with the oil change and did a little wipedown, but I’m gonna need to do a full cleaning before reinstalling the rear wheel.


Almost done with the yearly maintenance!

Had to finish up the service so I can start picking up my son at summer camp daily.
Did a little clean up on the drivetrain, it was a little grimey from picking up my son from school everyday, even in wet weather!



After clean up I got the rear wheel and brake cleaned up and reinstalled.



With all that back in place it was time for the Pipe clean up and reinstall.



With everything done, all that was left to do was reset the service light!



Ready for another year of Pickup Duty!

I like the front tool box stand sticker placement. I'll remember that when I paint my race bike for those onboard shots.

I ride Max 5 days a week to pick up my son from school so I needed a solution for mounting my iPhone. With the unique experience of extended motorcycle travel I have found the Ram mounting system to be awesome, but their X-grip phone holder to be not so great. With this in mind I searched for other phone mounting solutions and found the Quad Lock system that utilizes a special protective case for the iPhone and a Jenius mounting system.

Searching on the interwebs revealed that some owners of SR50’s in Europe use the mirror as a mounting point for phones so I went ahead and ordered a few Ram Mount pieces to get the quad lock ball mount to work.

The left side mirror was my target for mount.


The parts I used for the mount.


Had to drill out the mounting hole with a 1/2” drill bit to allow it to slide over the mirror “bushing” and sit flush.


Also located a longer bolt to accomodate the height increase of the mirror. Stock on the left, new stainless on the right. 5mm more makes the difference.


All that was left was to put it all together.



And now in use!
