  1. FREE Engine Stand Motor Mount

    Motor Tear Down and Rebuild
    Dear all TL members. I’ve long been a forum leech and gleaned all the wondrous free advice shared by everyone. I’ve always felt that I had little to offer in the way of help or advice back that hadn’t already been done/said, until now. Instead of seeking profit, I’ve felt it right to give back...

  4. Slowest engine rebuild thread..... with questions

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I'm in the process of rebuilding an engine for my TLS and I'm positive it's going to take forever (2 kids, old house, needy dogs, etc....). Along the way I'm sure I could use some advice on certain things and I figure I should probably keep it all in one thread. So here it is.... The Slowest...

  9. Carbon/Kevlar engine covers

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Does TLR need them since the fairings already cover the area quite well, especially at magneto side? I'm asking since I found some temptatively priced covers for TL on Ebay. And they're supposedly manufactured in Germany so the quality should be ok...

  12. New Engine break-in: Hard or Easy??

    Open Forum
    Reading this forum it looks like there are some very experienced wrench-turners on here. I'd love to get some consensus on this important issue for all riders. Breaking in an engine, do it hard or do it easy? There is a lot of old school knowledge out there, but the truth changes as engine...

  16. TL engine cases

    Looking to Sell
    I have a set of good cases form a 2001 TLR with one flaw: one mounting boss for the sprocket cover (which mounts the speed sensor) is broken off (cracked, there is not any hole in the cases, a pretty easy weld-up fix). Unfortunately, I've got $80 into them. I'm asking $40 or best offer plus...
  17. Engine temperture Vs. Performance.

    Performance Enhancement
    I know that the bike runs best when the ECM is in the warm map above 182 degrees IIRC. Now the popular modification is to run a hotter thermostat to ensure that the bike won't get cold enough to switch to the cold map. My question is what temperture range does the engine make the most power at...

    I have a complete 1997 all original TLS engine that I'm thinking about parting out. The engine has 52,000 miles on it and the bottom end is seized. I don't want to break it apart if nobody wants any of the parts. It is a lot easier to move around in one piece. So far all I know is that it was...
