  1. Extra Ponies?

    Performance Enhancement
    So I picked up my first 1998 TL1000R (something I've wanted as long as I can remember) and other than getting used to the usual stuff like having my testicles lightly roasted and the engine braking (first twin too) I just expected more horses! I really was expecting to be frightened or at least...
  2. Top speed pictures

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I was wondering if anyone had any dash pictures(showing the speedo) of there bike at excessive speeds. I searched but turned no results. I personally have done a displayed 155 but have no proof. I am having a feud with a guy that bashes twins and would like to show him some sort of picture.

    I've recently bought a TL1000r which has a power commander and racing cans. Occasionally at very low speed (less than 5 miles an hour) the engine stalls. At the speed that it happens the engine locks the back wheel and only very nifty clutch work has stopped me from dropping the bike. I've heard...
