Mine just did something similar, unpredictable cutting out at idle - turned out to be a dodgy side stand switch/wiring.

Those are the same symptoms mine had and they went away after a fuel pump swap out to the ca-cycleworks pump. Listen for the whirr of your fuel pump when turning the key on. Mine wasn't making the priming noise all the time.

I hope that helps.
Ah OK, thanks for the pic and reply.

Isn't the fuel filter there for the pump, not just the injectors?

Not possible, the pump is at the very start of the line. The screen protects the pump.

Oh.. I'm not getting rid of my Ape. It is retarded fun. Just as practical and as bulletproof as a 690.

I've been thinking of selling my 690 and getting an Aprilia 550. A friend has one that has 3 sets of wheels (2 pair SM wheels, and 1 pair custom-laced dirt wheels which use the SM brakes) as well as all the motor updates, and a very trick adjustable front axle clamp which fixes the "too little trail" issue.

So many bikes to own, so little time (and money)...

I hear Aprilia 550 and I think...ride, rebuild, ride, rebuild, ri-rebuild.

I mixed water and oil during the 2010 Wild west rally (rallymoto) in Washington. Then I had it rebuilt when I was in California at Longbeach Aprilia by Amauri Nunez. (Former Aprilia USA supermoto lead mechanic when they won pikes peak in 09). That was 2k miles ago and she runs good.

Anyway, my $.02

The SXV is has amazing power, sound, looks, and fun factor. Since my rebuild, I have not had any problems. I wouldn't attempt a RTW trip on it though
The 690 you sacrifice some in the "cool" factor but you more then make up for in reliability.

Really? What could possibly be cooler than an orange chromo trellis chassis filled with a stonking 690cc lump, suspended by WP, and stopped by Brembo?

70 HP fire breathing, 280lb twin with Italian breeding, suspended by Sachs and stopped by BETTER Brembo parts. I still regret getting rid of it sometimes, but there aren't any tracks around where I live now, and the SXV was really born to be ridden on a track.
