CBE Shiftholder Kit
Aprilia's tend to use relatively long shift shafts as part of their engine design. This longer shaft allows easier and simpler design of shift pedals, but does leave the shaft somewhat more vulnerable to damage in crashes.
This pin-roller bearing shiftholder kit from our friends at CBE Factory provides bracing for the shift shaft to prevent such damage, and has the added benefit of coming with a billet aluminum sprocket guard/cover.

*Owners of ABS, QS, and AutoBlip equipped models will need to take care when installing this part to preserve the routing and position of the quickshifter wiring.
