Seems a bit pricey, but if the bike rides better now its money well spent as a new one is around £350 I think

I think that's a fair price tbh.
You've got a top notch damper which should give several years of service.
You know it's history.
AND you've got some old bushes...what's not to like  laughing1

I was quoted about £115 but as they had to send it off to Ohlins it cost an extra £20.

Went to fit the damper and it looks like some prick has removed it in the past without taking out the grub screw so now I'll have to repair the thread before I put it back on.

Just replaced the tyres on my bike, the front was well past its best and the back only had another couple of hundred miles left in it. The bike handled like shit on the way to the tyre shop. On the way home it handled just the same  frown1 it's okay at speed but going slow and it feels like I've got a flat and it wont turn at all then sometimes it turns so quick it feels like I'm on ice. Service time for the Ohlins again I think.

Well it's not the Ohlins damper, I took it off and just did 50 miles and it's exactly the same. Got to be the steering head bearings so when the missus gets back from the caravan tomorrow I'll get her to put some weight on the back of the bike so I can check the bearings.

Bearings it is then  thumbdown1z. I'll try the Aprilia dealers about 100 yds from where I'm working and if they don't have any I'll give Griff a ring and see what he has.
