i just put a post with two questions... one about the gp shifting and one about the evolucione clutch slave cyclinder... can anyone see them.. the conversation, which i titled "two questions" seems to have disappeared?

i am confused.

I had that happen to me - do a search for a few key words - you should find the post then. Reply to yourself and it *might* appear. Depends a lot on from which direction the wind is coming...

well i tried to find it to no avail, so if anyone else can already see them, well sorry for reposting these... anyways, i will try to put a recap together here....

ok so i just bought a 2001 Falco last week, used. i love it!!! It has the SL Carbon pipes and chip, and the soft luggage (side bags and tank bag) and the handlebar risers. Its comfy... with tons of power... and a sweet sound.. what else could you ask for.

Well there are two things i want to ask for...

first is the clutch. I noticed this clutch is very hard on the hand.... especially when stuck in traffic... oh yea i live in Boston, MA so there is LOTS of traffic. So i found this evolucione.net replacement slave cyclinder... with a 16.5% something. Will this thing make the clutch feel more like a normal hydraulic clutch, as in easy to use? What is the 16.5% number referring too? Anyone use this thing?

Ok the second question was about GP shifting. I read some stuff here about usingo a Mille shifter or using a dremel to make the current shifter "flippable." does anyone have any pics or more description of the process to make either of these options work?

Hey Oreo, try some hand exercises, with those hand springs that you can pick up from gym or such.

The clutch isn't heavy, but i come from an old bevel Ducati, with incredibly heavy clutch cable pull, so to me the Falco clutch is light.

I agree with you ExD. I dont find the weight of the clutch a problem.

(I get my wife to carry it)

Genius eh.
The only reason I would swap the slave cylinder was if the OE one failed/leaked (as it has often be known to do).

But evryone to their own n' all that.
