    I ordered a fireblade side stand from the local Honda dealer this morning....so should be picking that up tomorrow....have also being giving the bike a deep clean.....only part way through at the moment......I suppose it's normal for owners of these bikes to smile like a loony everytime u start the bike......if not I do.......awesome bikes....

    Fitted this gen 2 sprocket cover.....a little different which I like (also a tiny bit of fettling to get it just right) will be getting a slave upgrade during the winter....also the top yoke kit turned up......should make riding the Falco a lot more enjoyable....ignore the old bolts they will be replaced as I go.....

    Well today I fitted my new top yoke (ABM)......new Renthals and matching bar ends to fit, I've just ordered new billet reservoirs from the land of the rising sun......still have to fit the braided brake lines which will done the mora and I have to trim the screen a little bit more...other than that it's nearly there......

    First day out on the Falco, nice bike to ride.....good power, brakes, handling.....the biggest thing though is how bloody light the thing is....so the more I ride it the quicker I get use to it.....but all in all very happy...

    Thats a neat job! I fancied doing the same to my 748, the cost of the kit however is a bit eye watering!

    The Falco is a thoroughly competent all-rounder, like a V twin version of a Fazer 1000 of which I am a fan, but lacking some of the Yamaha's lard. Yours looks like the nicest one I have seen.

    I've got a fazer 1000 as well and I have to say that the bar conversion on the falco is more comfy....lol one thing I notice is that the fazer isn't really a heavy bike, but after riding the falco it feels like a xjr1300........although it doesn't have the initial shot out of a cannon feel the fazer 1000 has, but the fazer doesn't make u smile like the falco...

    Yeah that kit is very expensive.....my kit is made by ABM in Germany and is a lovely bit of kit...maybe drop them a email and ask if they do a kit for ur bike...
