    Falcuono Photo Gallery

    I will kick of:
    First picture, just put a tuono frontfairing with RSV fairing stay on youre stripped falco en you will end with this:

    I think the frontfairing is mounted to low and need to be a bit backwards. This point also has all tuono's and apoint I realy dont like, dash is also very low and not in sight. The bars cannot move arround a lot because you hit the fairing.
    ***SAFETY** If you use a RSV fairing stay: this is not rigid enough and can break after a while!! Please use a stronger Tuono one or make a brace.
    After some cutting and welding the fairing stay was mounted to the top yoke, swiffels with the steering so no contact problems with the bars. Fairing is raised 6cm and 3.5cm backwards. (aprilia pay attention, this looks so much better!)


    Main problem to get a clean look is to clean the engine from all the wires and other stuff, my choice was to use to RSV04+ radiators and fairing.

    Status as today: added the OZ wheels, pro-oiler
    To do: more cleaning of wires and hoses...

    Do I like it? Yes very much, its very personel now and drive very nice and easy. Dont think I'm ever gonna sell it, okay thats also these projects never pay off! Haha, I'm stuck with her!

    All bow! The Great Modifier has spoken.

    Hans, how did you sort out the cooler tank on the right hand side? Is it still original? I don't like the way mine looks, will look into it.

    Can we get more pics?

    Whats going on with your side panels? It looks like the back edge of it is there, but the front of it would cover the radiator.

    In the meantime I`ve the streetfighter cover as well, but you`re right, the sidepanel was only a temporary solution. It was a broken sidepanel which I cutted to cover the necessary.

    Slightly different approach with mine, I don't want to do the Tuono fairing, as the Falco fairing and headlight looks way better, but I like the overall size of the Tuono fairing. I also prefer the slimmer look of the Tuono motor area, the Falco looks a bit fat here so I've put mine on a diet. I'm not quite ready for 'proper' handlebars yet, but really like the comfort of my Variobars which sit about an inch and a half higher than stock Falco bars. Latest addition is the Tuono bellypan, which I think is proportioned really nicley, it adds a little visual wieght to the front of the bike without heavilly bulking the whole bottom of the bike out like a full length pan.

    More aggressive looking than the stock Falco, but more graceful looking than the Tuono.

    Nooj, what's needed to fit the Mille's rear brake master cylinder/lever? Apart from itself, that is? Any brackets? Longer hose?

    That's for sure. It won't sink anyway, I think!

    They looks so much better than the unpainted versions!

    I did take some other pics, but they were shit. There are others up in the picture stickies, only the bellypan is new.

    Rear brake took a fair amount of doing, only the master cylinder is a Falco part. A couple of Tuono brackets, a longer brake line, some tubing to reach up to the reservoir, the heat shield and longer engine case bolts were needed.

    Old pic, but thought I'd toss it up.

    Not pictured: OZs, radial pumps, coated headers, aahooga horn, fringe, 4-pad calipers, Tuono motor



    So where's all the rest???
