So the speed sensor on my Gen 1 Mille gave up the ghost and I tested according to the horrible Haynes, so I knew it was knackered.

Start the search for a new one and Aprilia wanted £100 for a new RSV one, so I do a search and the RS125 looks the same so I deiced to take punt on one as they are only £35 for genuine one.

It arrives today and it only bloody works!!


So save yourself loads of money and do this if you need to.

Is it the same part number as the RSV one?

I thought this swap had been tried before and at elevated speeds was unreliable?

I can see Aprilia wanting to raid a small parts bin for all their models but is the OE part No the same rather than just being the same physical size?

I think Mark (redratbike) mentioned someone having issues with it mis reading at higher speeds but I don't know if that was a one off or a general issue.

I'm sure it was commented on at some length in the past either on the previous forum or perhaps the 'zone before it's many crashes.

If the parts fiche give them the same part no then all must be good,of course it could be just the cable length difference I suppose but if that's the case it makes me wonder why the price difference?

Anyway,at that price it's definitely worth a punt

Although by the time you add the vat and postage it's £50 but that's still half the price of the Mille price.
