    Falco fighter gear

    ello chaps some of you prolly now that Prila made an extremely rare fighter kit for the Falco, one of the few mods likely to increase a bike's used value coz they are factory and like hens teeth.

    Complete kit was over two grand new and changed bars fairing tank rear sets cans etc etc. They also made the items available separately. If anyone has or knows of any of these bits - bars & pegs would be a great start - I'd love to hear from ya. I wont hold my breath lol

    While we're at it, if anyone has nice non factory items for a bar / peg job on the falco lemme know.........cheers

    have to admit I prefer the tuono ride position due to failing body parts, at some point I might raise the bars and drop the pegs on the Falco, be interested to see what anyone has done re conversions....

    You'd be able to sell the cans within seconds on ebay / forums
    I've emailed them in the hope they'd do a split and give me the bellypan for my falco/tuono

    Dont want to....... I'd loose a bit of bhp, no question. The combi of Falco setup plus racing chip and cans gives unbelievable mid range, more than either mark 1 or 2 Tuonos c/w Akras.......... I can not imagine that replacing em with the fighter cans would give the same punt and I like the look of the racers

    I was more interested in the front end, mines got the Helibars so its more comfortable than OE, if I'm really honest I'm not sure that I'm ready to go the whole hog conversion wise. But that is a superb price. Customs would have their say but even so.........

    This week I received the last Falco Fighter Kit from AF1, they tell me there are no more as Aprilia Racing only made 60 kits. From the kit there are a load of parts that I will not need in my new project, I will not be needing the front mudguard, the hugger, the front disc cowls (all in polished aluminium), the high level exhausts (complete with chip and all fittings), the steering damper and the rear tail tidy. Any offers?

    Mate, put them in the For Sale section, I know there were at least a couple of guys on there looking for high level Falco pipes for their Milles.

    Haven't even had time to unpack the box yet and I wont be home again now until a week on Saturday.
    If you type Falco Fighter into a search engine you will see Aprilia Falco Fighter Kit, click on that and it will fetch up a couple of photos.

    Well, due to the shoulder injury its basically a case of fighter it or sell it. I'll explore both options, if I can fighter it by simply using superbike lows and maybe changing to reverse adjustable rear sets, I'd do it..........with the factory fighter kit, how exactly are the bars mounted, I understand that they threw in a sterring damper Pix would be great..........


    I wonder if the 'fighter chip' is the same as the factory 'race' chip that came with my cans?

    Had time to look in the box, and the chip is complete with a 'Piggy Back' and has 'Falco Fighter' written on it.
