I just got off of the phone with Fox Racing and they just introduced a TC/R shock for the Falco. It is rebound, compression and height adjustable. Has a remote resevour for the Falco (Mille has a piggyback). Cost is $629 USD and they have them in stock. Part number is 997-19-001-A. I am in no way affiliated with Fox, just thought they always made good stuff at a good price.

Do you have a URL, or phone number?

Racer,

Check this out. They have one listed for the Mille and one for the Falco. The Mille unit looks like a better shock and it's cheaper then the Falco unit?!? Doesn't really make sense Question is would it fit?

I'm sure it's probably just because the remote reservoir costs more than the solidly mounted one...

Scott :)

If there is a Mille one, then that will fit irrespective of price! Get the chearper of the 2. Look at the ohlins AP940 (Falco) and AP840 (Mille). All the places I'd read from said the 840's (Mille) wouldn't fit. But hey it fits perfectly thank you very much, and is a stupendous shock IMHO.

2 cents worth.

Actually, I asked them if the Mille unit would fit and they said it would not. I was just going to buy it, but they advised me that the piggy back reseviour fouled the sub frame. BTW, they did tell me that they are both the same price...

Nuts, sorry, phone number is 800/369-7469 x357. The guy who helped me is named Shane. Oh yeah, it is the TC/R shock on both the Falco and Mille, not the TC.

ScottEQ,

Any word from Ohlins on that shock? Are they going to be able to rebuild it for your girlfriends Yamaha?
