a Mille single exhaust on a Falco

So you to fit a set of RSV pipes to your Falco. did and originally posted this on retrofitting a single exhaust from a Mille onto a on the Aprilia RiderSite. It is re-printed additional photos by permission.

who got me onto this site a very nice chat at the Pally on the Renegade stand this year, imparted very useful information I am sorta of glad I didn’t to, he said. don’t do it.

Well the end of the is that I have managed it. The designs I started off with been replaced by more ones.


(1) Falco

(1) RSV swing arm

(1) RSV oil reservior tank

(1) stock RSV exhaust system

(1) Titanium Race can

(1) RSV Sachs (to be fitted later)

12-18 inches 1/2” oil pipe

(1) aluminium floppy drive rail

(1) computer internet access and the addresses of:

I a single exhaust pipe as to the twin that comes as Seemed easy enough, the are similar so fitting shouldn’t be a

The answer from most at the Ally Pally was “err, know ask somebody else, them” pointing at any random

Eventually I walked past the stand and although I didn’t the money at the time I could not past without asking the air kit, which I have not managed to get around to purchasing. about the kit obviously brought up the about what exhaust be fitted (well we were on stand after all), so I up the conversation closing statement

“I am of fitting a complete RSV system”

than finish the conversation I was I needed to talk to this looking Scots bloke, That was cool, as I am Scots it was rather a pleasure to be directed to More so when he started Finally after all the stalls had blank looks on their here was someone who knew and immediately explained the problem the swing arm.

For those who don’t know, one of the for the RSV having a banana swing arm is to the exhaust system tight the bike, due to this the Falco’s arm actually makes contact RSV collector box.

“Find the Riders’ Site and email the who managed to contact Pikfee.” he like Alec Guinness up some Jedi quest, but the sword play and mind and travel to exotic planets. turned out to be Litre1 who supplied me the bad news, you need to cut the RSV pipe and if you are going to use the standard Falco arm or bend it to fit, but basically it fit as standard.

Hmm, I am not that competent, Litre1 was talking having a shop look he had assembled the bits, I decided to go the way and fit an alternative swing arm and wanted different so started looking at a swing arm.

I quickly that the Futura swing arm incur a lot of expense since I be looking for the wheel, brake and caliper, basically the entire end.

So began the look for a reasonably RSV swing arm, which had tripled in price from the day I had the money ready and the following day (at that is how it felt).

After a Cheshire Motor Cycle came up trumps with a swing arm at a good price and they also had an RSV Sachs so I bought that as well.

working out how to support the bike dropping the swing arm out, and a friend who is “a man with a van full of and a further friend swapped the arms in about 3 or 4 hours information from the Hadeler (I thank you).

This have been the ideal to swap the shocks as well, but I realised that my sub frame the air valve by a large amount than the few mils that I had on the various sites that about swapping in the RSV Sachs IsleFalco has mentioned an Ohlins mod that should solve so I am looking around to find a firm to do the mod.

Back to the pipes then.

Now had done a better job of researching I had and had obtained an RSV oil reservoir tank as the RSV run straight down the centre of the where the Falco’s kinks out to a larger (Heavier construction?) oil I got mine a tad late for the swing arm so the original exhaust went the bike again.

The following saw the completion, with the RSV reservoir having arrived it nearly straight on.

The top mounting point is out by 2-3 inches but in the right plane. A drill on an old aluminium floppy rail did the job as a temporary fix and may even be a the permanent fix.

The oil return on the Falco sits on the top of the oil reservoir on the RSV it sits at the bottom so extra was needed. Mercifully the van of many also contained an amount of the piping (completely unplanned just lucky), the reservoir was leaving the path free for the RSV to be fitted.

I had recently secured an Aprilia race can on eBay which the RSV down pipes were in attached to reveal the last

The whole RSV rear sub frame higher than the Falco’s. is why there is a problem with on the RSV Sachs shock shrader and also why the my new second-hand pipe up being too close to the pillion A little modification was needed to this fit (mostly brute

The final solution will be to the pegs and a correct sized hanger made up to allow fitting of the pipe.

Or I could the pipe bent down a we are talking about needing to the exhaust by an inch at the most.

with oil and the bike was ready to

I had recently listened to an RSV with the end can. It sounded deep and but quiet enough not to attract to attention, just what I was for actually. The one I got on eBay does not to be the same. It may be that I have used to the standard pipes but system just seems to be too however having listened to a ride it up and down the street it too bad but it is wearing on the rider.

Time to find some killers, I will probably to repack the end can as well, so will up when I do that, and add them if the doesn’t subdue the noise.

engines like to breath and I can’t really report a difference in performance I have the front wheel lifting often and a lot easier.
