    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I have been searching a few days for a Bitubo Carbon Fiber steering damper. I know they do not make these anymore. Only chance I would have is if someone has one in stock from long ago. Got a phone call today from a guy. He does not have the EXACT steering damper in carbon fiber but he does...

  4. Some questions about a '97 TLS

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I had a Suzuki GS500 for about a year and sold it back in September because I was going to be away from home for a few months and didn't want it to be sitting outside over the winter.

  5. Newbie, with a few questions

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Hi, all. I just acquired a '99 TL1000S in San Diego, and drove it home to Oakland, about 500 miles. Other than loosing a few small bits (footpeg, rear cowl bolt, screw for front brake reservoir) it performed marvelously. Quite a bit more power than the Moto Guzzi V50 I've been piloting for the...

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Could I get some feedback on where to go with my sprockets when I replace them? I'd like to get a little more oomph out of it in the lower gears, so what size sprockets should I go with? Also, what kind of chain does the TLR use? A 530? How many links would I need to order it with if I...

  10. TLS battery box questions

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I am working on a project that I would like to refer to as a modern cafe, instead of a streetfighter. I am not sure I like the battery out in the open where it is and the TLS location would be very nice. I know I will be putting more weight up higher in the bike which is why I am not sure if I...

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Fooling around with my home made manometer trying to sync the throttle bodies. Watched the video. I synced at 1200, then at 2000. Went back down to 1200 and the sync is off, which indicates I need to adjust one of the air idle mixture screws. I understand all that, but it got me to thinking...
