  1. Fork rebuild with different springs question

    Help Forum
    I am in the process of replacing the springs in my forks and have noticed something that doesn't make sense based on information I've seen for fork rebuild info. My current forks have RaceTech 1.0 (or higher) springs, and I am replacing with stock springs (due to my weight) from some spare stock...

    I haven't compared the TLS forks with the ones in this video, but can I use this video from Delboy's garage to rebuild my forks without using the specialized tools?
  3. Preload adjuster on fork caps.

    Help Forum
    I'm in the middle of installing new fork springs and seals in my forks. I was about to compress the spring to reinstall the fork cap when the little pin, spring, and ball fell out. I have no idea how it all goes back together. I assume something wasn't right before I ever took the forks apart...
  4. Fork Compression question

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    This is a bad picture through the windscreen from a larger picture. Notice how much "Blue" is showing. I only had about 1" ring up on my 1st TLR. This one is set a little over 3 showing, It seems when I was test riding it to be soft. There are no signs of leaking forks at all. Milage is 9400...

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Ok, I'm replacing the stock springs, spacers & oil in my S forks with the 'Busa/R ones but what oil and height should I use :O Not altering shims or stacks etc just the springs/spacers and oil.

  20. fork oil change??

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Is it possible to do this without disasemble the forks. All my seals are fine and why mess with something that works fine. Just want fresh oil. On my old bike with right side up forks, it was a "peace of cake" but i am a bit worried with the USD forks.
