Falicon sponsored Dustin Wimmer came out 1-1! In Pro-Moto one, Dustin finished second to Josh Creamer with the two leaving the rest of the Pro lass behind with over a 10 second lead. In the first Pro-Am moto, things heated up with Josh and Dustin within a second of each other for most of the moto. Dustin had to settle for second place.

In Pro-Class Moto 2, the track was the roughest anybody had seen. Josh took the hole shot and Dustin followed with a bumper to bumper battle. Just after the half way point, Dustin grabbed the lead and pulled a solid four second lead to take the win. Moto 2 of the Pro-Am was a repeat, with Dustin taking charge past the half way to pull a four second lead to the checker.

After finishing round 7, Dustin is still in the points lead in both Pro and Pro-Am classes.

On October 24, 2010, Falicon sponsored "Wild" Bill Warner set a new world record of 278.6 mph at the Texas Mile! Bill went
255.1 mph on Friday October 22nd, 270.7 mph on Saturday, and then finally 278.6 mph on Sunday. Bill was only able to run once or twice a day due to the fierce crosswinds that ranged from 10-25 mph. Way to go Bill!

Continuing our passion for racing, Falicon partnered with Lacey Power Sport, Inc., who chose to build their own full out drag ski to compete for the "World Speed Record. ” As an established business out of NJ since 2000, they provide a full in-house machine shop that specializes in motor rebuilds, cylinder modifications, high performance installs, and related machine work.

LPS took their turbo knowledge from street racing and applied it to a Sea Doo 4-tec engine producing well over 500hp without any power adders to enhance it. LPS used Falicon’s Supercrank™ modification services to lighten and balance the crank specifically intended for this high RPM’s and high horsepower engine. Currently the jet ski will run 105mph with only 26 pounds of boost and soon will be running 35 pounds of boost. These builds are exclusively available through Lacey Power Sport, Inc. For more information call Chris Caputo @ 609.693.8485 or click here to visit their site.

Are you looking for that perfectly custom built racing engine for your Rotax DS 650? If so, you're in the right place. Oldham Machine Works partnered with Falicon to produce the most powerful and reliable stroker/ big more motor on the market. Strong, lightweight and capable of making huge power, the DS 650 makes a great dune/trail engine or all out drag race/hill shooter with this set-up.

Falicon developed a +5mm (**770cc), +8mm (**800cc), and a +10mm (**815cc) stroker crank specifically for OMW. A complete package kit is offered through OMW that includes: necessary case modifications, head porting with upgraded components, stroker crank, three different race cams to choose from, and big bore cylinder/ piston kit. We wanted to know how big we could go, and after much development and testing, a 100mm stroker was designed. That's a +17mm stroker! Combined with a 108mm bore, this DS 650 produces 916cc's! Yes, 916cc's! Below are two dyno charts. One shows peak horsepower and the other shows peak torque. ** Displacement calculated with 105.5mm bore.

In developing the largest stroker crank for the Can-AM DS 450 quad, Falicon partnered with Eric Oldham at Oldham Machine Works. We pushed the envelope by stroking the oem crankshaft +8mm (68.8mm overall stroke), balanced to a 14:1 high compression stroker piston. This creates a whopping 508.4cc's with a stock bore set-up; up your displacement to 529.6cc's with a 99mm bore!

This set-up is exclusively offered through OMW. Kit package includes: Bee-Hive spring kit, billet intake race cam, head porting, Falicon stroker crank with Knife® Rod (customer must supply crank core), 14:1 stroker piston, including a power commander map for this combo. Currently a +10mm (70.8mm overall stroke) crank is in testing. This combo will produce 523.2cc’s with stock bore configuration, and a monstrous 545cc’s with a 99mm bore!

billet crankshafts


Our best crankshaft. Forged from alloy steel and knife edged for performance, Falicon Billet Steel Crankshafts have become the standard in the racing world. We offer billet cranks for select superbikes and select off-road applications. We start with quality-certified E4340 steel, which produces the highest possible tensile strength and durability. Then, we double heat-treat the crankshaft before grinding the rod and main journals to size. Finally, we micro-finish the bearing surfaces and precision machine the drive gears to exacting tolerances.


Knife Rods

Falicon 1-Piece Knife Rods feature:

* Specially designed for High RPM, High Horsepower engines
* Forged Alloy Aircraft Steel
* 100% Machined

billet clutch baskets


OEM clutches are designed for stock horsepower, so it is not unusual to see the clutch basket fail in a modified motor. Don't ruin your motor - we have the solution to your problem. Our High-Performance Clutch Basket is constructed of aircraft-quality billet aluminum alloy with a much stronger design than stock. Our clutches have been proven by drag racers and road racers all around the world.

Send us your clutch basket/primary gear assembly. We remove the primary gear and perform a Magnaflux inspection to check for cracks and flaws. We install our Billet Basket with oversize rivets, replace worn/broken components, assemble and perform a dynamic balance. In some cases we add a steel backing plate and/or heavy duty springs if required.


adjustable cam sprockets


It is a known fact that "free" horsepower can be found just by slightly adjusting the timing position (degreeing) of your camshafts. This adjustment allows you to advance or retard cam timing for your specific application in order to get the most from the power characteristics.

Many late model engines have non-adjustable cam sprockets, usually set for what the manufacturer considers to be "good overall" timing. Falicon Adjustable Cam Sprockets allow you to change the cam timing to tailor the power to suit your riding style or application.

Falicon sprockets are the most precise and durable in the industry. Don't ruin your engine with a cheap imitation- trust nothing less than the

For some applications, we provide Sprocket Adapters that will give you the ability to adjust stock sprockets. Falicon Sprocket adapters press onto the cam end to transform it into an adjustable cam sprocket.


big bore


Our Big Bore/Stroker kits are winning races and championships all over the world. These kits improve the horsepower, mid-range and overall powerband. Our test riders and pro racers report increased power that's easier to control, allowing them to get on the power earlier when exiting corners. This increases straightaway speed and lowers lap times, while reducing rider fatigue.

We offer billet stroker cranks, modified OEM stroker cranks, big bore cylinders and modifications, as well as complete kits for several models.


Please note: If you don't know how to build and properly tune a race engine, including the installation of a crankshaft, we suggest you contact a professional engine builder or your dealer.

This is not rocket science, but you do need to realize that improper installation or tuning can ruin your engine.


Falicon tools

cylinder spacers base gaskets


Professionals need the right tools to properly build an engine. Falicon offers a few hard-to-find items to assist you in building, checking and maintaining your high-performance engine.

The picture on the right is our Rod Bold Stretch Gage. This is the tool of choice for installing your rod bolts.

When installing Rod Bolts, it is important to use a Rod Bolt Stretch Gauge to get the proper clamping pressure. A torque wrench will NOT do a good job in this application, since the clamping pressure varies too much due to thread lubricant, thread condition and other factors. Improper installation will generally lead to bolt failure, and will usually destroy the engine. Don't take a chance with your engine - use the proper tools and methods and you'll be much happier in the long run.
