    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Out of curiousity, has anyone put the bigger TLR master cylinder on the Tokico 4 pot calipers? I would be interested in knowing what your results were. I am in the process of having a set of 6 pots powdercoated, and I thought I might try the new mc on my old 4 pots.

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Just got a MINT Red '97 S (10,450 mi) and rode it home for the 1st time - just sold my R ~6mo ago and first thing I realized was pressure needed to stop bike noticeably more than the S. Both bikes were stock, no SS braided lines - but S fluid could probably be changed. Seen R calipers on S's...

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I'm guessing I should have done seals too. I have them in the garage, but skipped them because I wanted to squeeze a Sunday morning ride in. When I did the brakes I pushed the pistons in and bled from right to left (if that matters). Any other possibilities?
