New to the site, awaiting delivery of the said machine, but it seems a bit quiet in here
Anyone in ??

Doesn't look like it Rab. Perhaps you should have bought a Falco 'cos then at least you'd have had someone to talk to
Check out the threads on the Falco and Mille anyway and if you have any questions about the bike post on General. The bikes are all relatively similair anyway so there will usually be someone who can give you an answer.

Such is life matey.....
I am on a couple of other boards for the futura but the users sure seem thin on the ground
Thanks for the offer to visit the general area ... but it don`t seem that busy either. I`ll be hanging around for a bit, the trick will be to get everyone in the same place.
Now, .... just what would I want with a Falco??
|By Powermaster on Wednesday, November 27, 2002 - 03:23 am:|
Rab, this may sound strange, but I have never seen a Futura on the road and I would love to find out their power or play with one a little
Where are you?
|By Bossbob on Wednesday, November 27, 2002 - 04:44 am:|
I`ve heard about you
|By Bossbob on Friday, November 29, 2002 - 03:06 pm:|
Ok ... so that seems to have worked , my bike is safe
on a serious note, if allowed, there are several Futura owners on another site who would probably be pleased to let you test it as they "WANT" to do alterations to the airbox and mapping etc.
In my case this is the first new bike I`ve had and just want to get on it and enjoy. My days of quad carbs, jetting, high lift cams etc are over but they were fun........ albeit I did it on older bits of kit and for personal satisfaction. The novelty of endless days and nights in the lock-up have left me. And , to be honest, 113 Hp at the crank is too much anyway!!
I`ll try to get them to pop in here and express an interest.
So where are you PM?? ... Brands hatch if I perceive correctly.
P.S. It may help if I had a bit of an idea what tests you would like to do

It's the first thing I'd do if I had a Futura and that's the truth.
|By Powermaster on Saturday, November 30, 2002 - 11:49 am:|
I don`t think you could face the fun PM would poke at you if you had a Futura
|By Befbever on Saturday, November 30, 2002 - 01:36 pm:|
Classic, PM, I expected no less!
Bossbob, the Falco is quoted 118 DIN hp, that's crank.
Mine had 122 bone stock after 4000 miles , but my Falco is an unusually strong one so the PM tells me.
I now have 125 crank, but gained 10 hp midrange. And that's where we ride our bikes isn't it?
The difference between a Futura and a Falco? If you bring your bike to Jorge, we'll soon know for sure.
|By Bossbob on Saturday, November 30, 2002 - 05:04 pm:|
Interesting comment. I didn`t know that was part of what you did, staintunes already do exhausts and this outfit, as you may or may not already be aware, do made to measure to your spec.
If I ever build exhausts for the Futura, I have no intention of changing it's position
Also, why not invite them to pop in ARS. As you may notice, ARS is not about what model you have
As for tests, I am just curious to see what they are kicking out and compare the power curve to others 2 equal engines

Quote nicked from the FJR site
And there is me linking you to that other site..not once,BUT TWICE!!
PM fits this development work in around running an Exhaust Manufacturing company
|By Befbever on Sunday, December 01, 2002 - 12:37 pm:|
I also understand that the Futura has a slightly different engine (physically) and the ECU is a different make, the same as the one on a Triumph....... do you have the "tuneboy" to re-write the maps?? If not how would you program the ECU to suit the changes??
|By Bossbob on Sunday, December 01, 2002 - 07:08 pm:|
I thought you were someone who didn't want to know?
ARS = ApriliaRiderSite
|By Richandall on Monday, December 02, 2002 - 03:59 am:|
The figures (Hp @ crank)as I have them now are ; Mille 130 ; Futura 113 ; Falco 118
|By Befbever on Monday, December 02, 2002 - 11:37 am:|
Gee, Rich, now that you mention it...
I went looking for those graphs on the Rene site and the best I could find was 119 wheel DIN.
All others are below 130 bhp crank, even with Arrows and the likes.
No wonder my Falco's a Mille Slayer!
