Hope you don't mind if I pop in to ask a question ... I'm thinking about adapting the Scarabeo's side cases to my Falco and wondered if I could get some feedback from you on them.
I'm looking to find out if they're well made

Re: Scarabeo bags on a Falco
Durable and easy to use and also if they are easily attached and detached from the brackets.
Thanks for any thoughts suggestions etc.
And if anyone has a set they're not wanting to hold on to, please let me know!
,I'm new to all this, only having had my Scarabeo 500 4 months now, but in my opinion the saddle bags are well made, easy to use and tough. Recently one of my bags fell off while I was doing about 40-45mph. I don't know why it came off, but it departed the scoot after going over a bump in the road. More than likely it was my fault. I had the bags off the day before and the only thing I can think of is that I didn't latch it on properly. Anyway, the bag survived admirably, only sporting a few scratches.
They are very easily removed and re-attached to the scoot. I guess I just screwed up. I am unfamiliar with the Falco so cannot speak to what you would have to do to mount the brackets, but as for the bags I would recommend them.

If that belt is still original, means never been replace it should not be tightened!
If it has been replace, the belt might be bigger than the original, you have to ask the mechanic or distributor to replace it with the original size.
The noise inside the gear area would be the springs in the torque pulley, the rear side where the wheel axle is located. The springs in that area moves the clutch shoes to grip the axle drum.
The rollers should be rounded when you check on it, no sides at all. Replace it when you see that it is not rounded anymore.
Check the torque pulley and the main shaft nut.
Thanks for using FixYa!
Hello, I am not too familiar with your Machine? However is there a drain screw on the clutch case/cover. Is this engine 2 or 4 stroke? If it is 2 stroke then NO oil drain plug only gearbox drain if geared. If twist and go then No maintenance required. Have you tried Aprillia website for further info? I hope this helps, Paul 'W' Onyer~EDson(:0)~[><U.K.
and need the small black plastic panels that bolt onto the bottom of the fairings
I tried http://www.apriliayorkshire.co.uk but cant find any diagram with these panels ....!
What are they called and where can I buy them ?
,Its called Lower fairing, black
You can find it under Genuine Aprilia Front body - Front mudguard spare parts for SL 1000 Falco . Look up part number 5
Here it is at AF1 listing . Part number AP8158773. Aprilia Yorkshire list its for 47.18 pounds
000 miles on it now and I started losing clutch fluid recently. I'm not sure what I want to do to fix the problem. I see that AF1 has oem replacement slaves cylinder seals and the evoluzione slave. Anyone have the evoluzione slave? Worth the money or just replace the stock cylinder or seals?
I had Evo slaves on both my Tuono and Falco. Better design than OEM. Bleed it once and the fluid will last a while. has 3 orings. OEM has one and the fluid goes black in about 5 minutes............
If money is tight, the rebuild is the way to go. The Evo is more than just bling though, it is a better design.,5'8 but left leg is 3 shorter than it used to be so thinking of lowering the bike to ease getting on and of it.
I had realised that I would have to lower the front as well but was mainly wondering about the geometry on the back end and if it would still work correctly with the different linkages.
,It will still work, just not as well as with the right linkage. The spring rate will no doubt be wrong. Nothing major to worry about though imo... Not sure what others may think.
3 shorter, hows that if you dont mind my asking?
Im only 5'6 tall, cant have both feet down flat but I have no major issues.
