Well, I've been riding my NFalcone this weekend. I have a lot of things done to it now - halogen headlight, Lucas running/turn signal lighting, led tail light in stock housing, touched-up paint and bodywork etc etc. I removed the flywheel cover to measure the flywheel lock nut since I'd like to have a proper tool for removing it. The bike looked kinda nice without the cover. The flywheels spins out in the open like the old or, rather, older bikes. I also considered removing the rear part of the cover bolted behind the flywheel but, for now, I screwed the screws back in the exposed threaded rear cover holes and it looked better. So, I take the bike out for a little run to a coffee shop for a cappuccino. Hey man, this is fine. I may just leave the cover off for a while. I rode around town for a while and stopped at an auto parts store for some lead-replacement upper-end lubricant. I motored on down to the coffee place. I sat and sipped my coffee and looked at the little bike. Me likes it. I like the look without the flywheel cover. On my way home, I made a turn off the main roadway, all of a sudden something caught my left foot. I felt a jerking, pulling motion as though my boot was dragging the ground. Guess what? My heel had dug into the spinning flywheel! If I keep the flywheel cover removed, I will make a foot guard down by the footpeg to keep my foot out of the flywheel. Has/is anyone running their NF with the flywheel cover removed?
