    Just bought this '01 Falco

    I just picked up this '01 Falco last week. I believe I am the third owner. It had just under 14k miles on the odometer when I got it. I've only ridden it a couple hundred miles so far and overall the bike seems to run very well. I plan on keeping it mostly the way it is, but I will need to swap out the stock "blue spring" shock which cannot support my weight. The bike also has very snatchy throttle response coming off idle. I have been reading a lot of the threads on this forum regarding ways to address both of these issues. Thanks to everyone for posting this information.
    Sorry in advance if this winds up in the wrong place. My first post.

    Hello neighbor and a hearty Wafo to you!

    That's a beauty, nice catch indeed.

    Would enjoy meeting up for some bird appreciation any old time.

    Hey Gary,

    Nice to hear from you. Saturday at the Moto Euro Breakfast another Falco owner Bob mentioned your name. Do you still do the Saturday breakfasts once in a while? I would love to meet up with you to pick your brain on some Falco updates before I spend $$ going down a wrong path.
    Thanks,
    MikeO

    Hey Mike,
    I don't really do the breakfast thing but I'd be happy to go for a spin and chat over a breakfast burrito in Ramona or wherever.

    Fat Old Guy goes slow on new Falco

    Got the new Falco out on some twisty roads for some fun so I thought I would add an action photo. Need to replace blue spring shock. Picked up an'04 Tuono shock and linkage. I plan to send shock off to Traxxion Dynamics for rebuild and re-spring. Enjoying the new bike!

    Great score! Wafo!

    Funny, I bought my first Falco (an '03, same color) from a guy in San Mateo, then had it shipped down here. That was 14 quick years and many miles ago.

    Time certainly moves right along, dammit.




    Where in the Bay Area are you?

    I'm over in Palo Alto. Ended up flying down to LA and rode it back the same day. Was a tiring, but fun ride! I'm lucky the coolant leak didn't appear until a few weeks after I came back; the seller ended up using epoxy on the leak behind the fairing. The epoxy failed after a long ride, but bought a used coolant reservoir and had that installed and now she's as a good as new.

    Do you still have your Falco? Pics?

    No, that bike has been traded 4 times now since I've had it but it's still in the SD area.

    Here's the current hoss, a bit of a Frankenstein.
