Question about 2000 Aprilia SL Mille Falco

1 Answer

Yet another suspension question falco

OK Some help needed I have read through everything I can find but can't find an answer to this one. Everyone says that different shocks need different linkages due to the length of the linkages and the spring rates on different shocks. So if I get a set of these http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/UK-LOWERING-KI...d=p3286.c0.m14 What else will I need to do to make sure the bike still handles correctly? BTW I am using a white spring RSV shock at the moment and don't really want to change it.

How tall are you? The best way would be to lower the front and back together that way the stearing shouldnt be affected much/ at all. All lowering the back will do is slow the steering but make it stable in a streight line.

2002 Aprilia Falco will not hold a charge for long.


Hi, Rca8888 first perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12.5 volts or better after charging.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Hook up battery positive cable, then with your multimeter on the milliamp scale connect one lead to the negative battery post and the other lead to the ground cable. Meter should read 3 milliamps or less, 10 milliamps with a radio, 15 milliamps with radio and CB. If your meter reads higher you need to isolate the circuit by pulling fuses and circuit breakers one at a time and observe meter for a drop in amperage then get out your test light and track down the short in that circuit.
5. Hook up a voltmeter to the battery and start the engine, if meter falls below 9.0 volts while cranking you need to perform a proper load test on the battery and replace if necessary.
6. With the engine running at 3600 RPM, the battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
7. Unplug the voltage regulator from the alternator at crankcase by the front of the primary cover.
8. To test voltage regulator go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8EjV0IjW9Q
9. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace the stator.
10. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace the stator.
11. With the voltmeter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace the rotor.
For more information about your issue please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Whats the best 2 stroke oil to use on a 2005 kx 250


Everyone will tell you the oil they use is the best, so you are going to get a different answer from everyone that answers. I've been using BelRay MC1 for over 35 years and I have never had a lubrication related failure. I am still proudly racing 2-strokes at the top amatuer level. I have heard good stuff about Amsoil but I don't use their premix. I do use their suspension and brake fluids, though.

I suggest using BelRay MC1 at at least 32:1.

I hope this helped.

Not getting along with my new falco


but im not really feeling the love for it. the main problems i have at the moment are that the front and rear suspension are really soft its ruining my cornering confidence and making the bike uncomfortable to ride. im 20st and 6'5 so there is a lot of me to hustle about. the hagon shock that the previous owner put on there has not adjustment other then preload and im sure the spring rate is miles off what i would need whats a good replacement shock for a guy like me? also the clutch is very heavy with little progression its either on or off so im finding riding in town hard work as well as slipping the clutch in corners. lastly the fuel economy is pretty poor, i only got 93 miles before my low fuel warning light came on. so any suggestions? because at this rate im considering selling it to get something a bit more pedestrian for riding in london like a fazer 1000.,I wasn't feeling the love for my falco for awhile either. For reference, I'm 6'6 and about 250 lbs. Helibars are a must IMO. Also, my level of hate went waaaay down when I installed a smaller (-1) front sprocket. Being able to get the bike into corners at the right revs (and torque) reduced the amount of braking I did, which let the suspension settle down. Toss the stock shock. They're great bikes, you just have to get it set up for you. ,,,

Oil question


i did some research. i wanted to get rotella 15/40 synthetic but walmart did not have it. all they had was 5/40 synthetic. is this ok to use in the falco? have been using 10/40 synthetic spectro from dealer. Rotella is made for heavy duty diesel engines buy some for your PowerStroke Ford or Cummins Dodge. If you are hellbent to buy Shell products get the Advance VSX4 oil .....if you can find it.,,,
