I am the proud owner of a 01 Falco with 2500 miles. All I've done in mods is the evo air box and filter, 15 tooth front sprocket and ti leo's. The bike runs like a raped ape. I am big (270 lbs) and the front will come up from just torque in second. Mat (mechanic) at Oceanside Ducati/Aprilia says its the fastest one he's ridden. Its never been dyno'd. QUESTION...Should I now spend money on a chip? What are the chances of even more gains? Which chip? I don't want to spend mony on something that will be un-noticable.

if you are totally happy with it, keep riding it just like it is.....more miles, more smiles
if you want to try some chips, get the Arrow for like $50, or if you really want to try something, ride up to Evoluzione (Simi Valley) and try out a FP chip. After a bit of small tweaking, you may like the bike even more...he could also do before/after dyno runs too, if that is something that interests you...if they do not "feel" like they made a difference, you can always go back to the original setup.

the factory pro chip is good but bit more pricey that the arrow one :s if ur happy with the bike leave it as it is

My goal is to do Oz wheels, decent rear shock, front springs and gold valve set up. Of course if I can make it faster with a plug in I'm interested.
I tried to form a Bitumo organized shock purchase as I'm sure you've read. Kinda slow so far.
Do you folks plan to sell a good shock set up (front too) at a special price on the forum?

The FP chip was the answer. It got rid of the 3500-4000 stumble and the 5500 dip completely. The bike was super smooth and after 7000 rpms it felt like a 4-barrel carb after the other 2 barrels open...
Just do it...

Eventually we will move into offering suspension components. We started this week with a race shock for the RS50 and will continue to develop this product line over the next year.
