1.2.1.
BASIC SAFETY RULES
CARBON MONOXIDE
Should it be necessary to perform some operations with the vehicle running, make sure to work outdoors or in a wellaerated room.
Avoid starting the engine in closed or badly ventilated rooms.
In case you are working indoors, use an exhaust gases’ scavenging system.
DANGER
Exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide, which is extremely toxic if inhaled and may cause loss of
consciousness or even lead to death by asphyxia.
FUEL
DANGER
The fuel used to operate engines is highly flammable and becomes explosive under particular conditions.
Refueling and engine service should take place in a well-ventilated area with the engine turned off. Do
not smoke when refueling or in the proximity of sources of fuel vapors, avoid flames, sparks and any
element that could ignite fuel or provoke explosions.
DO NOT DISPOSE OF FUEL IN THE ENVIRONMENT.
KEEP IT AWAY FROM CHILDREN.
HIGH-TEMPERATURE COMPONENTS
The engine and the exhaust system parts become hot and continue to be hot even for some time after the engine has
been stopped.
Before handling these parts, wear insulating gloves or wait for the engine and the exhaust system to cool completely
down.
USED GEARBOX AND FORK OILS
DANGER
In case any maintenance operation should be required, it is advisable to use latex gloves.
Gear oil may cause serious damage to the skin if handled daily and for long periods.
Wash your hands carefully after use.
Put it in a sealed container and take it to the filling station where you usually buy it or to an oil salvage
center.
In case any maintenance operation should be required, it is advisable to use latex gloves.
DO NOT DISPOSE OF OIL IN THE ENVIRONMENT
KEEP IT AWAY FROM CHILDREN.
BRAKE FLUID
WARNING
When using the brake fluid, take care not to spill it on the plastic, rubber or painted parts, since it can
damage them.
When carrying out the maintenance operations on the braking system, use a clean cloth to cover these
parts.
Always wear safety goggles when working on the braking system.

GENERAL INFORMATION
RSV 1000 R - RSV 1000 R FACTORY
COOLANT
The coolant is composed of ethylene glycol that, under certain conditions, can become inflammable and send forth
invisible flames causing severe burns.
DANGER
Be careful not to spill the coolant on the red-hot parts of the engine and the exhaust system: it may catch
fire and send forth invisible flames.
In case any maintenance operation should be required, it is advisable to use latex gloves.
Even if toxic, coolant has a sweet flavor. Never leave it inside open containers or within the reach of
animals to prevent the risk of drinking.
KEEP IT AWAY FROM CHILDREN.
Do not remove the radiator plug when the engine is hot. The coolant is under pressure and could cause
severe burns.
HYDROGEN GAS AND BATTERY ELECTROLYTE
DANGER
The battery electrolyte is a toxic, caustic substance containing sulphuric acid and thus able to cause
severe burns in case of contact.
Always wear tight gloves and protective clothes when handling this fluid.
If the electrolyte gets in contact with the skin, carefully wash the parts of your body that get in contact
with the fluid with abundant fresh water.
Always use a protection for your eyes since even a very small amount of the battery fluid can cause
blindness. In the event of contact with your eyes, carefully wash them with water for fifteen minutes and
then consult immediately an eye specialist.
Should you accidentally drink some fluid, drink abundant water or milk, then drink milk of magnesia or
vegetable oil and consult a doctor immediately. The battery releases explosive gases. Keep flames,
sparks, cigarettes and any other heat source away from it. Make sure the room is well aerated when
servicing or recharging the battery.
KEEP IT AWAY FROM CHILDREN.
The battery fluid is corrosive.
Do not pour it on the plastic parts.
Make sure that the electrolyte acid is suitable for the type of battery used.
GENERAL PRECAUTIONS AND INFORMATION
Follow these instructions closely when repairing, disassembling or reassembling the motorcycle or its components.
DANGER
Using bare flames is strictly forbidden when working on the motorcycle. Before servicing or inspecting
the motorcycle: stop the engine and remove the key from the ignition switch; allow for the engine and
exhaust system to cool down; where possible, lift the motorcycle using adequate equipment placed on
firm and level ground. Be careful of any parts of the engine or exhaust system which may still be hot to
the touch to avoid scalds or burns.
Never put any mechanical parts or other vehicle components in your mouth when you have both hands
busy. None of the motorcycle components is edible. Some components are harmful to the human body
or toxic.
Unless expressly specified otherwise, motorcycle assemblies are refitted or re-assembled by reversing
the removal or dismantling procedure. Where a procedure is cross-referred to relevant sections in the
manual, proceed sensibly to prevent shifting any parts unless strictly necessary. Never attempt to polish
matte-finished surfaces with lapping compounds.
Never use fuel instead of solvent to clean the motorcycle.
Do not clean any rubber or plastic parts or the seat with alcohol, gasoline or solvents. Clean with water
and neutral detergent.
Always disconnect the battery negative (–) lead before soldering any electrical components.
When two or more persons service the same motorcycle together, special care must be taken to avoid
personal injury.
BEFORE DISASSEMBLING ANY COMPONENTS
•

RSV 1000 R - RSV 1000 R FACTORY
GENERAL INFORMATION
DISASSEMBLING THE COMPONENTS
Never use pliers or similar tools to loosen and/or tighten nuts and bolts. Always use a suitable wrench.
Mark all connections (hoses, wiring, etc.) with their positions before disconnecting them. Identify each connection
using a distinctive symbol or convention.
Mark each part clearly to avoid confusion when refitting.
Thoroughly clean and wash any components that you removed using a detergent with low flash point.
Mated parts should always be refitted together. These parts will have seated themselves against one another in service as a result of normal wear and tear and should never be mixed up with other similar parts on refitting.
Certain components are matched-pair parts and should always be replaced as a set.
Keep the motorcycle and its components well away from heat sources.
REASSEMBLING THE COMPONENTS
DANGER
Never reuse a circlip or snap ring. These parts must always be replaced once they have been shifted.
When fitting a new circlip or snap ring, take care to move the open ends apart just enough to allow fitting
in the shaft.
Make a rule to check that a newly –fitted circlip or snap ring has located fully into its groove.
Never clean a bearing with compressed air.
NOTE All bearings must rotate freely with no hardness or noise. Replace any bearings that do not meet these
requirements.
-
Use ORIGINAL Aprilia SPARE PARTS only.
Use the specified lubricants and consumables.
Where possible, lubricate a part before assembly.
When tightening nuts and bolts, start with the largest or innermost nut/bolt and observe a cross pattern. Tighten evenly in subsequent steps until achieving the specified torque.
Replace any self-locking nuts, gaskets, seals, circlips or snap rings, O-rings, split pins, bolts and screws which have
a damaged thread.
Lubricate the bearings abundantly before assembly.
Make a rule to check that all components you have fitted are correctly in place.
After repairing the motorcycle and after each service inspection, perform the preliminary checks, and then drive the
motorcycle in a private estate area or in a safe area away from traffic.
Clean all joint surfaces, oil seal edges and gaskets before assembly. Apply a light coat of lithium grease along the
edges of oil seals. Fit oil seals and bearings with the marking or serial number facing outwards (in view).
ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS
To disconnect the electrical connector, follow the procedures below. Failure to comply with these procedures may lead to
irreparable damages to the connector and the wiring as well. If present, press the special safety hooks.
WARNING
Do not pull cables to disconnect the two connectors.
•
•
•
Grasp the two connectors and disconnect them by pulling them in the two opposite directions.
In case of dirt, rust, moisture, and so on, thoroughly clean the inside of the connectors with compressed air.
Make sure that the cables are correctly fitted inside the connectors’ terminals.
NOTE The two connectors have just one correct positioning. Make sure to position them in the right direction.
Then fit the two connectors. Make sure they are correctly coupled (a click will be heard).
TIGHTENING TORQUE SETTINGS
DANGER
Always remember that the tightening torque settings of all wheel, brake, wheel shaft and other
suspension parts play a fundamental role to ensure vehicle safety. Make sure that these values are
always within the specified limits.
Check fastening parts tightening torque settings at regular intervals. Upon reassembly, always use a
torque wrench.
Failure to comply with these recommendations could lead to the loosening and detachment of one of
these parts with a consequent locking of the wheel or other serious troubles affecting the vehicle
handling, and thus the risk of falls and serious injuries or death.

1.3. DANGEROUS ELEMENTS
1.3.1.
WARNINGS
FUEL
DANGER
The fuel used to operate engines is highly flammable and becomes explosive under particular conditions.
Refueling and engine service should take place in a well-ventilated area with the engine turned off. Do
not smoke when refueling or when near fuel vapors’ sources. Avoid contact with bare flames, sources of
sparks or any other source which may ignite the fuel or lead to explosion.
Take care not to spill fuel out of the filler, or it may ignite when in contact with hot engine parts. In the
event of accidental fuel spillage, make sure the affected area is fully dry before starting the engine. Fuel
expands from heat and when left under direct sunlight.
Never fill the fuel tank up to the rim. Tighten the filler cap securely after each refueling.
Avoid contact with skin. Do not inhale vapors. Do not swallow fuel. Do not use a hose to transfer fuel between different containers.
DO NOT RELEASE FUEL INTO THE ENVIRONMENT.
KEEP IT AWAY FROM CHILDREN.
Use only premium grade unleaded gas, min. O.N. 95 (N.O.R.M.) and 85 (N.O.M.M.).
LUBRICANTS
DANGER
A good lubrication ensures the vehicle’s safety.
Failure to keep the lubricants at the recommended level or the use of a non-suitable new and clean type
of lubricant can lead to the engine’s or gearbox’s seizure, thus leading to serious accidents, personal injury or even death.
Gear oil may cause serious damage to the skin if handled daily and for long periods.
Wash your hands carefully after use.
Do not dispose of oil into the environment.
Take it to the filling station where you usually buy it or to an oil salvage center.
WARNING
When filling the vehicle with this oil, take care not to spill it out since it could damage the vehicle paintwork.
In case of contact with oil, the tires’ surface will become very slippery, thus becoming a serious danger
for your safety.
In case of leaks, do not use the vehicle. Check and trace the cause of leaks and proceed to repair.
ENGINE OIL
DANGER
Prolonged or repeated contact with engine oil may cause severe skin damage.
Wash your hands thoroughly after handling engine oil.
Do not release it into the environment.
Dispose of engine oil through the nearest waste oil reclamation firm or through the supplier.
Wear latex gloves during servicing.
FRONT FORK FLUID
DANGER
Front suspension response can be modified to a certain extent by changing the damping settings and/or
selecting a particular grade of oil. Standard oil grade is SAE 20 W. Different oil grades can be selected to
obtain a particular suspension response. (Choose SAE 5W for a softer suspension, 20W for a stiffer suspension).
The two grades can also be mixed in varying solutions to obtain the desired response.

RSV 1000 R - RSV 1000 R FACTORY
GENERAL INFORMATION
BRAKE FLUID
NOTE This vehicle is fitted with front and rear disc brakes. Each braking system is operated by an independent hydraulic
circuit. The information provided below applies to both braking systems.
DANGER
Do not use the vehicle in case brakes are worn out or do not work properly! The brakes are the parts that
most ensure your safety and for this reason they must always be in perfectly working order. Failure to
comply with these recommendations will probably lead to a crash or an accident, with a consequent risk
of personal injury or death.
A wet surface reduces the brakes’ efficiency.
DANGER
In case of wet ground, double the braking distance since both brakes and tires drives on the road surface
are extremely reduced by the water present on the road’s surface.
Any water on brakes, after washing the vehicle or driving on a wet road surface, crossing puddles or
ditches can wet brakes so as to greatly reduce their efficiency.
Failure to comply with these recommendations may lead to serious accidents, with a consequent risk of
severe personal injuries or death.
Brakes are critical safety components. Do not ride the vehicle in case brakes are not working at their
best.
Check for the brakes’ proper working order before every trip.
Brake fluid is an irritant. Avoid contact with eyes or skin.
In the event of accidental contact, wash the affected body parts thoroughly. In the event of accidental
contact with eyes, contact an eye specialist or seek medical advice.
DO NOT RELEASE BRAKE FLUID INTO THE ENVIRONMENT. KEEP IT AWAY FROM CHILDREN.
When handling brake fluid, take care not to spill it onto plastic or paint-finished parts or they will damage.
DANGER
Do not use any brake fluids other than the specified type. Never mix different types of fluids to top up
level, as this will damage the braking system.
Do not use brake fluid from containers that have been kept open or in storage for long periods.
Any sudden changes in play or hardness in the brake levers are warning signs of problems with the hydraulic circuits.
Ensure that the brake discs and brake linings have not become contaminated with oil or grease. This is
particularly important after servicing or inspections.
Make sure the brake lines are not twisted or worn.
Prevent accidental entry of water or dust into the circuit.
Wear latex gloves when servicing the hydraulic circuit.
DISC BRAKES
DANGER
The brakes are the parts that most ensure your safety and for this reason they must always be in perfectly working condition; check them before every trip.
A dirty disc soils the pads.
Dirty pads must be replaced, while dirty discs must be cleaned with a high-quality degreaser.
Perform the maintenance operations with half the indicated frequency if the vehicle is used in rainy or
dusty areas, on uneven surfaces or on racetracks.
When the disc pads wear out, the level of the fluid decreases to automatically compensate for their wear.
The front brake fluid reservoir is located on the right handlebar, near the front brake lever.
The rear brake fluid reservoir is located under the right fairing.
Do not use the vehicle if the braking system is leaking fluid.
1-9
GENERAL INFORMATION
RSV 1000 R - RSV 1000 R FACTORY
COOLANT
DANGER
Coolant is toxic when ingested; it is an irritant, contact with eyes or skin may cause irritation.
In the event of contact with eyes, rinse repeatedly with abundant water and seek medical advice. In the
event of ingestion, induce vomiting, rinse mouth and throat with abundant water and seek medical advice
immediately.
DO NOT RELEASE INTO THE ENVIRONMENT.
KEEP IT AWAY FROM CHILDREN.
DANGER
Take care not to spill coolant onto hot engine parts. It may ignite and produce invisible flames. Wear latex gloves when servicing.
Do not ride when coolant is below the minimum level.
Coolant mixture is a 50% solution of water and anti-freeze. This is the ideal solution for most operating temperatures and
provides good corrosion protection.
This solution is also suited for the warm season, as it is less prone to evaporative loss and will reduce the need for topups.
In addition, less water evaporation means fewer minerals salts depositing in the radiator, which helps preserve the cooling system’s efficiency.
When temperature drops below zero degrees centigrade, check the cooling system frequently and add more anti-freeze
(up to 60% maximum) to the solution.
Use distilled water in the coolant mixture. Tap water will damage the engine.
Refer to the chart given below and add water with the quantity of anti-freeze to obtain a solution with the desired freezing
point:
Freezing point F°(C°)
-4° (-20°)
-22° (-30°)
-40° (-40°)

NOTE Coolants have different specifications. The protection degree is written on the label.
WARNING
Use nitrate-free coolant only, with a protection until at least -31°F (-35°C).
DRIVE CHAIN
Check the drive chain operation, slack and lubrication at regular intervals.
The vehicle is equipped with an endless chain with a joint link.
WARNING
If too slack, the chain can come off the front or rear sprockets thus leading to serious accidents and
damage to the vehicle, with consequent serious personal injury or death.
Do not use the vehicle if the chain tension has not been correctly adjusted.
To check the chain, take it with your hand where it turns on the rear sprocket and pull it as to separate it
from the crown itself.
If you can move the chain apart of the front sprocket for more than 0.125 in (3 mm), change chain, crown
and pinion.
DANGER
If not properly maintained, the chain can undergo early wear out and lead to the damage of both crown
and pinion.
Perform chain maintenance operations more frequently if the vehicle is used on rainy or dusty areas.

RSV 1000 R - RSV 1000 R FACTORY
GENERAL INFORMATION
TIRES
WARNING
If tires are excessively inflated, the vehicle will be hard and uneasy to ride, thus making you feel not at
your ease.
In addition the roadworthiness, mainly on wet surfaces and during cornering, will be impaired.
Flat tires (insufficient pressure) can slip on the rim and make you lose control of the vehicle.
In this case too, both vehicle roadworthiness, handling and brake efficiency will be impaired.
Tires changing, repair, maintenance and balancing must be carried out by specialized technicians using
suitable equipment.
When new, tires can have a thin slippery protective coating. Drive carefully for the first kilometers (miles).
Never use rubber treating substances on tires.
In particular, avoid contact with fluid fuels, leading to a rapid wear.
In case of contact with oil or fuel, do not clean but change tires.
DANGER
Some of the factory-assembled tires of this vehicle are provided with wear indicators.
There are several kinds of wear indicators.
For more information on how to check the wear, contact your Dealer.
Visually check if the tires are worn and in this case have them changed.
If a tire deflates while driving, stop immediately.
Avoid hard brakings or moves and do not close throttles too abruptly.
Slowly close throttle grip, move to the edge of the road and use the engine brake to slow down until coming to a halt.
Failure to comply with these recommendations can lead to serious accidents and consequent personal
injuries or death.
Do not install tires with air tube on rims for tubeless tires and vice versa.

1.4. RUNNING-IN
1.4.1.
RUNNING-IN RECOMMENDATIONS
Running-in the engine is essential to ensure its duration and correct functioning.
If possible, drive on hilly roads and/or roads with many bends, so that the engine, the suspensions and the brakes undergo a more effective running-in.
During the running-in, change speed.
In this way the components are first "loaded" and then "relieved" and the engine’s parts can thus cool down.
Even if it is important to stress the engine components during running-in, take care not to over do it.
WARNING
You can expect the best performance levels from the vehicle only after the first 932 mi (1500 km) of running-in.
Keep to the following indications:
•
Do not open the throttle completely if the speed is low, both during and after the running-in.
•
During the first 62 mi (100 km) pull the brakes with caution, avoiding sharp and prolonged braking. This ensures a
correct bedding-in of the pads on the brake disc.
•
During the first 621 mi (1000 km) never exceed 6000 rpm (see table).
WARNING
After the first 621 mi (1000 km), Dealers carry out the checks indicated in the column "After runningin", see (REGULAR SERVICE INTERVALS CHART), in order to avoid hurting yourself or other people
and/or damaging the vehicle.
•
•
Between the first 621 mi (1000 km) and 932 mi (1500 km) drive more briskly, change speed and use the maximum
acceleration only for a few seconds, in order to ensure better coupling of the components; never exceed 7500 rpm
(see table).
After the first 932 mi (1500 km) you can expect better performance from the engine, however, without exceeding
the maximum allowed [11000 rpm].

DIAGNOSTICS
Whenever the ignition key is turned to “ ”, “EFI” is displayed
for 3 seconds.
WARNING
If “EFI” displays together with the warning led
( ) while the engine is running normally, the
ECU has detected a fault.
In most cases the engine will continue to operate although with reduced performance.
ENGINE OIL PRESSURE
Whenever the ignition key is turned to “ ”, the engine oil
pressure led turns on for 3 seconds.
WARNING
If the engine oil pressure icon stays on together
with the warning led ( ), after starting, or if it
turns on while the engine is running normally,
the engine oil pressure is insufficient.
In this case, stop the engine immediately.

GENERAL TECHNICAL INFORMATION
RED LINE ADJUSTMENT (ONLY WITH ENGINE OFF)
When the engine rpm exceeds the red line setting, the red
line indicator (2) on the dashboard flashes.
IMPORTANT The red line setting can only be adjusted with
the engine off and the odometer displayed (adjustment range
2000 to 12000 rpm).
The default value is 6000 rpm.
To display the red line setting, hold down TRIP/V for at least
3 seconds. The revolution counter pointer (1) will move to the
set red line value.
To adjust :
•
Turn the ignition key to “ ”.
•
Wait for the self-check to complete.
•
Press TRIP/V for more than 3 seconds: the revolution
counter pointer (1) will move to the set red line value.
•
The red line setting can be adjusted during the 3 seconds that the revolution counter pointer (1) is indicating
the set value.
•
Adjust the red line setting with the + key: pressing it
briefly will increase the setting by 100 rpm; holding it
down will increase it by 1000 rpm.
•
If the pointer reaches the full-scale value (12000 rpm) it
is automatically reset to zero.
•
•
3 seconds after the last adjustment (+ key) the new red
line setting is stored and confirmed by the red line indicator (2) turning on for 3 seconds. The pointer (1) returns to zero.
If the engine is started during the adjustment procedure, the previous setting is maintained. The setting is
lost if the battery is disconnected during the adjustment
procedure, and the previous setting is maintained.
DASHBOARD ECU DIAGNOSTICS CODE DISPLAY
Display type :
water temperature digits together with EFI icon and warning
led ( ). When a diagnostics code is displayed, the water
temperature’s symbol (thermometer), units’ indication (°C/°F)
and display segments disappear.
Operating modes :
In normal conditions, the “EFI” icon and warning led ( ) are
off. If one or more Fault Codes are sent to the dashboard by
the ECU, the dashboard will not display them; it will only turn
on the warning led ( ) and “EFI” icon instead.
2 - 31
GENERAL TECHNICAL INFORMATION
RSV 1000 R - RSV 1000 R FACTORY
To display the diagnostics codes in question, enable diagnostics mode by pressing the LAP button at key-ON for at
least 15 seconds. To exit the diagnostics code display and
return to the normal display mode, run a key-OFF/ON cycle.
When the faults are eliminated and hence the Fault Code is
no longer being sent to the dashboard by the ECU, the
dashboard will continue to display them until a key-OFF/ON
cycle is run.
If the dashboard is sent a code other than those given in the
following diagnostics code table, it will display PXX where
the XX is the last two digits of the code in question. If the
CAN line does not respond or is disconnected in diagnostics
mode, ERR will flash in place of the code digits.

CHECKING THE COMPONENTS
WHEEL-HOLDER TUBE
Check the sliding surface, which must be neither lined, nor
scratched.
Slight lines can be eliminated by sanding the surface with
wet sandpaper (grain 1).
If the lines are deep, change the tube.
Use a comparator to make sure that any of the tube’s curving is lower than the limit value.
If it exceeds the limit value, change the tube.
Curving limit: 0.0079 in (0.2 mm).
WARNING
NEVER straighten a curved tube, since its
structure would be weakened, thus making the
use of the vehicle quite dangerous.
SLIDER
Make sure that there are neither damages, nor cracks.
Otherwise, change it.
SPRING
Check the integrity of the spring, making sure that its length
does not exceed the limit value.
If the length does not correspond to the limit value, change
the spring.
Minimum length of the spring when not compressed:
11.181 in (284 mm).
Check the condition of the following components:
slide bushing;
guide bushing;
5 - 51
CYCLE PARTS
pumping element.
If excessive wear or any damage is noticed, change the
component in question.
CAUTION
Remove any accumulation of impurities from
the bushings, taking care not to scratch their
surfaces.
Replace the following components with new ones:
gasket;
anti dust gasket;
-
the two O rings on the adjusting element.
Oil quantity: 204.7 ± 0.98 in (520 ± 2.5 cm).
Oil level: 4.646 ± 0.079 in (118 ± 2 mm) (from the slider
edge).
NOTE In order to obtain a correct measurement of the oil
level, the slider must be perfectly vertical. The oil level must
be the same for both tubes.

CAN LINE
A CAN (Controller Area Network) line is a connection between the vehicle’s various electronic components that operates like a computer (Internet) network.
The use of CAN lines greatly simplifies the electrical system
and its overall weight.
With this type of network, duplicating the sensors around the
vehicle is unnecessary, inasmuch as both electronic control
systems (dashboard and ECU) share the sensors’ signals.
ADVANTAGES OF THE CAN SYSTEM
•
•
•
•
Reduction of the number of cables: the CAN line runs
on a double cable between its nodes.
The nodes are also capable of isolating errors without
causing the system to breakdown (Fault Confinement).
Robustness: the signal is transmitted over two cables
and the reading is differential (voltage difference between the two signals on separate cables). If the two
signals are perturbed by external factors, their difference is not affected.
Speed of communications: bandwidth is around 250
kbps (data is transmitted to the nodes every 20 ms =
50 times a second).
THE CAN (CONTROLLER AREA NETWORK) PROTOCOL
The CAN comms protocol is a CSMA/CD (Carrier Sense
Multiple Access /w Collision Detection) protocol.
In order to transmit, each node must first check that the BUS
connecting it to all the other nodes is free (Carrier Sense);
only then can it transmit on the BUS. If there is no activity on
the BUS, all nodes are able to transmit over it (Multiple Access). If two nodes start transmitting at the same time, they
detect the collision (Collision Detection) and judge the situation based on a set priority ranking (the messages are unaltered during the mediating and the higher priority message is
not delayed).
The CAN protocol is message-oriented, not addressoriented. The message itself is composed of a number of
component frames, each of which has a set significance:
message priority, data, error checking, reception confirmation, and so on. All nodes receive all messages on the BUS
(with reception confirmation or error) and each node decides
whether the message is to be handled or discarded. Each
node can also request information from other nodes (RTR =
Remote Transmit Request).

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
STARTING
Before it starts the engine, the ECU waits for permission
from the dashboard over the CAN which identifies the engine
model V990 (this information resides in the dashboard).
No sensor (apart from the fuel reserve sensor) is connected
directly to the dashboard; the dashboard reads from the
ECU. All sensors/switches are connected to the ECU.

indicator stays off, revolution counter and speedometer stay
at zero, battery voltage reads 9.0V and the water temperature reading flashes ERR.

IMMOBILIZER
IMMOBILIZER
The vehicle is equipped with an immobilizer that stops the
engine from being started if the correct code is not entered.
The code is stored in the transponder in each of the two keys
supplied with the vehicle. An antenna, mounted in the ignition switch that is directly connected to the ECU, reads the
transponder data.
The immobilizer is completely independent of the CAN.
The immobilizer mode is indicated by a led on the
dashboard, as follows:
immobilizer de-activated: led off
immobilizer activated: led flashes every 3 seconds (warning function)
incorrect key: led flashes every second
The led stops flashing after 240 hours to save energy.
STORING NEW KEY CODES (VIRGIN MEMORY)
When the immobilizer ECU is first powered up, its memory is
virgin and the led stays on without flashing. To store the first
two key codes :
run a key ON cycle with the first key: the led will switch
off for 0.5 sec and turn on again. When it turns on, turn
the key to OFF.
turn the second key supplied to ON within 20 seconds.
The led will switch off and immediately flash 4 times.
Now turn the key to OFF. The two keys are now stored and
the immobilizer is activated (led flashes every 3 seconds as
a warning).
The two keys are now stored and the immobilizer is activated
whenever the key is turned to OFF (led flashes every 3 seconds as a warning)
If power fails after the first key is stored, the system will reset
(first key data also cancelled). After the first key has been
stored, all vehicle and dashboard’s functions are enabled.
The key is not stored definitively if the second key is not
stored within 20 seconds.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
ADDITIONAL KEY STORE PROCEDURE
The immobilizer system can recognize up to 4 keys. The
storage procedure can only be done at the Dealer’s with a
Master Key.
The storage procedure cancels the existing codes, so that if
the client wishes to store new keys he must come to the
Dealer’s with all the keys he wishes to use. The storage procedure is as follows :
1. with a customer key (already stored), turn from key ON
to OFF
2.
fit the Master Key within 20 seconds, thus enabling the
storing procedure. The led will stay on continuously
3.
insert and run key-ON’s in sequence with all the keys to
be stored. The led will switch off for 0.5 seconds after
each key has been successfully stored.
4.
After each key has been stored, the system waits for a
new key for 20 seconds (led on continuously) after
which the procedure self-terminates (the led flashes
once for each key and then turns off).
