New here ......
Just placed a deposit on a 2000 TL1000R in Black - collect on Tuesday.
Have always liked the TL1000 models so picked this one up cheaply - suspect its going to need TLC! 36,000 miles and 13 previous owners!
Will update after collection.
Is there a manual on line?
Howdy and welcome. Wow! 13 previous owners.
"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."
Colonel Jeff Cooper, in "The Art of the Rifle"

Apparently it had the 'Fuel pump relay and seal done' in June last year.
I've got a habit of 'saving' bikes if that makes sense.
Will update when I collect tomorrow or Tuesday. I'll do that usual Newbie question ....... How do I post pictures on this forum!
Hi bsr67 welcome to the clan I'm like you too back on a tlr after 17 years since I rode one or any bike since🤣. I'm sure you will get her in pristine condition after some TLC. As of posting photos click the paper clip attachment icon at the top when posting a message to upload photos. Here's mine only had her 5 wks!🤗
That's very nice in black too and I nearly bought about 2 yrs ago but never got the courage up to buy it but I do like all the colours and only got the blue and white as i had one many years ago so it's a sentimental reason for me. I'm sure after a bit of tlc it will be purring in no time and like you said it's a challenge you want to win and with all the advice and help on here you wont be alone. Mine needs some tlc it has a small dent in the tank and slight crack to the nose cone but otherwise in mint condition.
Just an update on my progress with getting the tiller prepared for her winter storage. Nose fairing and tank off for repair, deep clean and then some acf50 to keep the rust away. All new to me but I'm learning as I go along I just hope I can put her back together again🤔.
