Unfortunately for sale or trade is my 1997 Suzuki TL1000s (TLS) motorcycle with custom paint, tasteful, common modifications and well maintained. I have enjoyed this bike for several years, but it's time to move on to other things. Trying to find something that my kids can enjoy with me.
First I want to say, "Thanks", to all the Zone for the information that I found on here, that has helped me get this thing to where it is. I do enjoy riding this bike after I got all of the bugs worked out.
1997 Suzuki TL1000s.
The bike has RaceTech fork internals, Dunlop Sportmax...
My TLS is is going to be painted this winter and i have therefore a a little question.
The bike is going to be painted Ducati red, but Ducati has two color codes. One before 98 and one after. Have always liked the rather elegant deep red color.
I live in Norway and there is not much...
Is it possible to remove the paint with paintremover and polish it up to shine???
I know its stainless, but have anybody a pic of the before and after.
A guide would be nice.....
i am tired of painting it every year because the front pipe gets hit by stones...
anyone know of a online store that sells this plastic paint ?
in australia would be better :)
i'm after 3-4 rattle cans of gloss white
i got told SPOTLIGHT sell it but rang the local not in stock & they will not get it in just for me :banghead
hi guys can anyone help me iam trying to paint my seat unit but keep getting 2 small areas where it seems to react is there a product i can paint over it to carry on like a sealer or something :banghead
There has been a nice paint scheme JPG floating around for quite some time. Only issue was that it only had the USA colour schemes on it so wasnt a full list. I decided to add the 3 missing bikes 1 red and 2 black.
Im not sure who the original maker of the JPG was so cant give props where they...
I am trying to color match to paint my tank to match a Lucky Strike kit. Anyone color match with the asain Lucky Strike fairings before? Paint codes? Trying to match both the white and the red. Any help would be appreciated.
Looking for some advice on the best way to paint a belly pan. I actually bought a genuine SV1000 pan from this Ebay link --> here. It is a shame that I don't have a gold TLS & I hope this fits ok! :laugh
I am guessing a lot of rubbing down with steadily finer wet'n'dry will be required...
I will be repainting my TLS this winter. I do not have photoshop or I would post pics of my idea but am leaning towards Competition Orange (think Dodge Challenger SRT8) with a grey racing stripe and black pinstripes. Or maybe white stripe with black or grey pinstripes.
Whats up Gurus
Ok here's the drill. I dont know anything about Photoshop and I'm an even worse artist! I have a paint scheme idea that I would like to see on a TLR with slash cut pipes. Anybody willing to chop it up a bit and maybe get this drawn up for me so I can see what it may look like...
Well here are some berfore pics and here are some pics of the progress. I am painting the fairings white so I think it should look pretty good when its all done. Thanks for all that I have purchased parts from or sold to to keep this thing alive! I will keep you all posted.
does anyone know where i can get some good quality chrome paint at a good price in the uk and how much i would need to do my fairing, tank, nose cone and tail pod.
got big plans lots of chrome...... lots of carbon fibre..
NEED PAINT NEED PAINT NEED PAINT:)
