    Holy shit.

    Well the good news is that it SHOULDN'T mess anything up permanently, right?

    That's my thought, but as a caution, I plan to contact Aprilia customer service and see how they want to handle it.

    They probably had an unmarked jug of diesel fuel for cleaning chains laying around the shop and used it at the last minute for prep, thinking it was gas.

    That doesn't excuse such an idiotic mistake. I'd be asking for a $100 gas card or some free accessories for that gaff.

    Not all of them, obviously. But this is a good example of why, if you DO have/find a good one, then you should support the hell out of them.

    Wowzer! Mark I can't imagine your frustration right now.
    Hopefully no damage was done to the fuel system, piston rings, valves, etc. Wishing you the best of luck with the ownership.

    That is fucking insane, how do these shitty dealers stay in business?..... Been around this hobby for about 23yrs and it still amazes me the absolute utter incompetence of Motorcycle/Automotive dealers.

    Do you still have some of the diesel mix that came out of the tank? Might want to hang on to it in case Aprilia Corporate want you to get it tested.

    Yes, I have about 2.5 gallons of it, not even sure what to do with it other than start brush fires with it on rainy days. I can't even put it in my backhoe because there is gas in it.

    Took the bike for a 20 mile ride yesterday, it ran perfectly.

    I haven't contacted Aprilia yet. I sent an email to the salesman/dealer explaining what was found and in a nice way, told him I was not happy about it. I was hoping for some type of response in reasonable time, but I got nothing. Prior to delivery, responding to my emails was pretty quick...

    Once home from work today, I will contact Aprilia

    All I can say is when you decide to go back to an R1 just let me know and I'll trade or better yet we can switch off once and a while!!
