    Hi, I'd like to add/change a few details on my bike, just to give this little extra touch, like foot pegs, levers, brake fluid containers etc etc. Problem is that when I'm looking on the web for parts, I don't know what will fit, since all too often the TLS parts are off the aftermarket (it...

    Hello guys, I have a bitubo fitted to my TLS. What's the deal with fitting a TLR swingarm? The outer tabs look to be in roughly the same place as the ones use by the Bitubo in the TLS swingarm. And then there is the rear TLS header pipe, would this cause problems, too short??? Cheers WLR
