I've already put Helibars, which helped a little, but not enough so I can use the bike for longer distances (200+ miles). After some searching online I've found a handlebar kit that...

    I had a problem with my fourth gear, tore her down and found out it was rounded gear knobs that lock the gear in. I found a TLR complete tranny and the guy is going to give me a good price, however I am not sure if it is identical to the tls. I have looked at both schematics and can't seem to...

    Finally gettin' around to replacing the rear spring - is there a better way than is shown in the 'frequent tl mods'? Mainly, do you NEED to reduce the diameter of the carrier just above the threads? And what's...

    I'm guessing it's called a chain buffer. The rubber bit that tops the chain from hitting the swingarm near the front sproket. can it be replaced with out removing the swing arm ?? .

    Has anyone ever replaced their airbox with clamp on air filters? I see the air box as just a huge waste of space and weight. I want to try and make some ram air tubes to go over some filters and was wondering if there would be any down sides to it. Any input would be great. And with the extra...

    In the course of my swapping over to a GSXR front end I read in the manual that I need to replace the inner races for the steering bearings. Does anyone know where the hell I would get some of those? Would I have to get new bearings to get them? Also, the gsxr steering bearings I have (which...
