Aprilia Climber 280 1994

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've recently acquired a 1994 Aprilia Climber 280 but I'm having a hard time trying to find parts & a workshop manual for it. I currently need a new clutch master cylinder as the old Grimeca one has seized but I can't find an alternative anywhere? I also need to know where to drain & fill both the engine & transmission oils (I've been told the transmission oil has been drained).

Hi Ross,

there's an Allen bolt 6 or 8mm to drain out your Gear oil.

DO NOT loosen the 13mm bolt next to it. That's your kick start return spring retainer.

1litre of Putoline light gear oil will do nicely.

oh and you'll never ever find a workshop manual for it. Proper hen's teeth job.

ive recently rebuilt a 280, ask away if you get stuck.

I have one of these too. I can't remember where the reservoir for the rear brake should be mounted, can anyone let me know? Also I don't have a rear stand.
