    My gaugelights tail lights and license plate lights stopped working all at once. The headlight and brakelight still function properly. All fuses in the fuse box are good. Is there a fuse somewhere else that may have blown?

    Hey guys, recently bought this bike with 6700 miles on it. It runs pretty good. It pops under deacceleration. So i'm guessing an exhaust leak. But what is really weird is the idle. Sometimes it idles at 1300 where i like it. Sometimes it idles at 1750. Tonight it was idled at 1000. It changes...

    hey guys I bought my TLR with a hotbodies/lookalike undertail already installed. However I noticed that the section under the seat itself just kinda flops down and up. The push pins towards the back of the tail section are in and strong but that part under the seat section worries me. Does...

    Hello all. I have been a member for a little while now but this is my first post. I have not felt the need to talk about anything yet because the TLZone family pretty much has all the bases covered. :cheers I bought a 2001 TLR about six months ago as a daily driver. I love it!!! It has...

    Helo lads, Right.... I`ve fitted a set of Renthal Fatbars to me TLS and i`ve done away with the clocks and rev counter... In it`s place now sits a nice tidy little KOSO Digital Speedo, but i`m wanting to keep the Oil light/Neutral light & Fuel light as they`re handy things to have. Can someone...

    Guys, Help!!!!!!!!!!! Did open her (TL) up Saterday with two things in mind. Cleaning of filter, Bmc and to clean things up a bit. Seeing that i've always had this issue with low idle, i also tried to set the idle a bit higher by means of the adjustment screw next to the forward trottle body on...

    Guys, These bikes never stop amazing me in the sence that they indeed graze money and time. The latest senario on mine (TLR) is the following. After having to refill the clutch resevoir weekly due to a leaking cap, now it happens that in the mornings when the bike is cold, the clutch engages...
  10. Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    A couple weeks ago I started noticing that my Tiller wasn't pulling the way that I had become accustomed to. Where it had previously lofted the front end a fair piece in both first and second, now it would barely lift an inch or two in first (WOT). I also noticed that the RPM at idle was a tad...

    ok so I have an 97s with a 2000R motor. Everything is hooked up right. runs better without the pc3 on it.. Adjusted the tps like in the video but still runs like garbage with the fuel injection. Very twitchy, cuts off often. The idle is still ALL OVER THE PLACE. the choke doesn't respond...

    I think my TLS is trying to tell me something... As a bit of background, mine is a 1997 TLS with a Y2K motor in it.. I put the bike on eBay last week - I was considering a BMW K1200R (it was a moment of weakness) but on Saturday I had a change of heart and decided to keep the TL, mainly based...

    OK so I have been working on this thing for a while now. The pump isn't priming when I turn it on. I checked all the fuses except the fuel pump relay cause I don't have a tested. All the fuses look fine. Any ideas????

    Alas, after many $$$ spent on upgrades (suspension etc) and several mods to the electrical system, I was looking forward to my first ride today on the TLR since last year. How foolish of me to think that my first push of the starter button would be without problems. The bike will turn over...
  15. Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Let me preface this thread by saying that I am not very mechanically incline, and I am limited on tools but I want to learn. I bought the bike with the rear brake lever broke, so I just ordered new sets for the bike. I put on my rearsets this afternoon. Had to modify the brake light sensor...

    Ok, I got my TLR out for the first time this season, on Sunday. I just put the whole thing back together after a complete teardown, and everything seems good, except for the damn clutch. It grabs almost at the very end of the bar. There's no feel to it, it's a real pain in the ass for takeoffs...

    Well off and on the bike will not start. Starter wont turn when you push the start button. This is every once and awhile it will do it only when its hot. Then when it finally does decide to run the starter over sometimes when this issue is present it will just turn over and over and i will have...

    Put on new wavy rotors, the only problem is when I apply the brakes the bike kinda kinda bounces. it feels like brakes are on then off then on then off but the whole time im applying even pressure to the lever. Any idease would be awsome.
