Re: 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.

Ive got the same car, here is two problems ive found that made it run rough 1. The ignition leads are a bad design and the metal clip that plugs into the end of the plug is very tight and quite often people just reef on the lead or rubber insulation on end of lead causing the lead to break off the end of metal clip on the end of it. Ive done it twice myself till i worked out that you need to grip onto the rubber insulation (the big rubber bit on end of lead) about half way along it with multi grips or something similar so you are actually pulling on the metal bit just above the plug and gently wriggle it off. My sister has same car too and all the leads were broken like this it was still running but like ****,new set of leads fixed it. 2. I had run my lanos very low on fuel a fair few times and it started to splutter and stall and was under powered for about a week so i changed the fuel filter ($15 AUS) and good as new. Hope this helps>
Printer manufacturers include chips inside the catridges.When the same cartridge is used the printer reads the chip and finds that you have refilled the cartridge and returns the error. The simplest way to get around is to have have 3 empty cartridges and rotating them one after the other. This way you can fool the printer and get around the check!
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
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.,,,
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.
