Overwhelmed by the replies.......

The clutch seems to have beeded its-self in nicely now.

Clutch slippage 2001 Falco 1000


I know this is an old thread, but I'm experiencing the same problem. The clutches were slipping on my wife's Falco 1000, and I bought a Barnett kit, along with the updated pressure plate per the website's instructions. The old clutches did not look bad, but I went ahead and installed the kit along with updated pressure plate. Still experiencing clutch slippage. I completely drained/flushed the clutch master/slave reservoirs, and it helped marginally. A friend who is a motorcycle tech (more accomplished than I, who consider myself to be a moderately skilled bike tech) suggested that the actuating rod may have gotten some burs/corrosion, and might be hanging up. Or also that the slave or master was hanging up in such a way as to be putting slight pressure on the rod, thereby acting as if a rider were applying slight pressure to the clutch lever.

I'm still working on the bike, but before I go to the trouble and expense of shotgunning the hydraulic system with new clutch master and slave cylinders, I'd like to know how many miles you rode before your Aprilia started to act right. If it is just a matter of riding it a little that's no problem. Thanks!
