Aprilia SXV/RXV valve shim help video

Recommended Posts

Figured I'd post my valve shim adjustment help video here for Thumper Talk RXV and SXV owners.

Over 18 minutes long, the first part I zoom in on the specific parts as I work on the rear cylinder, then the second part I zoom out for the overall view as I work on the front cylinder.

I added some obnoxious green text that's easy to see when I felt something needed explaining or it differed from the manual. In the past some people have complained about not having any background music so I added some royalty free tracks. If you think it's too cheesy you can just mute it, I made the video with text rather than commentary so it could be watched without sound.

I wanted to make this video because the instructions are pretty bare and I would have loved to have a visual guide when I did mine. Hope this helps clear up some confusion or worry for those on the fence or about shimming their valves. Enjoy!
