    falco fighter contract yeah

    OK so these are gone. But I'm gonna have to sort something because its sit up and beg for me (shoulder terminally fooked). Its fighter it or sell it.

    Now I reckon I could get away with Renthal Superbike lows and a yoke mod (the kit in the linky includes steering damper). Is there anyone who would feel confident about doing a conversion for me? Apart from the fact that I cant do any physical work involving me right arm at the mo (: lol) I want make sure this is done properly, if at all.

    I've seen many a decent bike ruined by a streeshiter conversion, in fact I've ridden a few, if this happens I want it to handle as well as a Tuono.

    ps dont care about all the usual bitsnbobs, happy to retain standard fairing if poss, I just want a sorted front end once I'm sat up.

    I've emailed em, no reply as yet, and the guy who replied to the previous Falco thread said he had the last one At least I think thats what he said.

    Either way, I only really want part of the kit - bars yoke attachment damper bar end mirrors - but we'll find out soon enough what the score is.

    Like I said, you could do it on the cheap if the original fairing can be retained using something like Renthal ultra lows, the tricky bit is going to be the yoke. We wonders about the Tuono mk1 arrangement, ie whether or not there are any shared components front end wise. I may give Don a shout at Southern Cross, I've got a feeling they fightered Milles at some stage.......

    By the way, do you know if the chip in the fighter deal is the same as the factory 'race' chip for the Falco?

    $200 in shipping costs....the box is HUGE!!!!

    We do not charge anything on the export.....no taxes or VAT.

    Your country might charge you something on the import. Any VAT, import fees
    or taxes would be your responsibility, and we have no way of knowing what
    each country charges. It depends on the items, country of origin, and the
    cost too

    We ship insured for full value with a USA commercial invoice.

    You can simply order online


    Thanks

    Ed Cook

    the crux is would you get stung by our customs and excise ??

    the chip is as you say probably the same...DR Rossi chips are a good price try him

    ok cheapest option buy an rsv yoke,bars and risers from ebay

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/3-pull-back-Ba...item27ad64c562

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Aprilia-RSV-Mi...item2a024234ad

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/RENTHAL-BLACK-...item19b7dbd000

    the yoke you could drill for the risers...dont forget you may need longer clutch and brake lines


    this guy on ebay sells conversion kits check the add and contact him

    good luck
