Aprilia Pegaso Strada 650

Recommended Posts

Hi can anyone please help. I have a 2007 Strada 650 that has done just under 15000km and the big and small end bearings have gone. I heard a slight noise so took it to the agents and found the bearings to be the problem. My warranty claim has been turned down by the shop I bought the bike from on the grounds that I wheely the bike? Would wheelying cause this?

Older bikes used to have a problem with this sort of thing as wheelying deprived the oil pump of suction and caused bearing failures due to lack of lubrication.

Shouldn't be an issue on new bikes. Sounds like they are having you over. :evil:

Thanks for all the replies. I really will need all the advice I can get because I need to know if I have a chance in court before spending money on legal action.

Sounds a little like you have been wheelying... if you have and it could have caused the problem, you probably don't have a leg to stand on.


I have heard that pulling big wheelies often can bugger up the oil flow in some engines, causing engine wear (not to mention damage to wheel bearings and general wear and tear due to mechanical stress over time). My feeling based on logic is that motor engineering to optimize oil flow for prolonged wheelies might be low on the priority list for many manufacturers! But what do I know? :wink:


There is a legal expert on the forum here (Bikelegal) - he might pipe in on your legal rights...
