  13. Broken fuel line quick connectors

    Help Forum
    I broke the small blue clip on the fuel line where it attached to the fuel tank. RonAyers only shows the actual fuel line for sale but I don't know if that will come with both parts of the quick connector. I would think it would, right? I can't connect a hose directly to it because the bend...

  16. Is this a broken Chain guide? Is this bad? Pic attached

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    While working on the TLR last night, I ran across this. I have no idea how long it has been like that either. Is this a major concern? It is seperated right where it bolts to the frame.

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    So... I'm riding home from work tonight, and noticed something was weird with the bike's handling - noticed the old pogo feeling from the rear that induces a weave in the handling when you're hiked over on the gas. Over every bump, it felt like I was riding a pogo stick. I took it easy to get...
