Hello guys... still in the process of bringing my recently acquired TL1000S (1997) to perfect functional state.
Got it from a 67years old guy with non-original fairings with an ugly-ass rattlecan finish on... but luckily with a box of original parts.
Leovinci carbon cans, 17 years old tyres (not...
I am a big fan of cryogenicaly treating engine parts like they do in formula one. do you see a benefit to cryoing valves and valve springs or does it make them to brittle?? just wanna know before I take apart my engine and replace parts .thanks!!
Like the title says, my clutch doesn't fully engage until the lever is all the way out. Is that how it's supposed to be on this bike, or is it a sign that I need new springs? FWIW, it doesn't slip at all (or not that I've noticed).
Well finally managed to get the funds for a nice new Bitubo for the ol TLS :thumbup . .
Now here's one for all you out there . . What springs would compliment the shock ? ? ohlins. . Hyper pro. . Hagon. .WP . . :confused
What I'm really asking is if anyone else has got the bitubo...
Ok, been gone about a year (did India on an enfield bullet 500...will post pics) and believe it or not the slippy clutch on my 98 tls did not fix itself...
Been searching and reading my arse off and it seems oem friction plates and Barnett springs are the likely cure (barring warped basket and...

Anyone has experience with replacing the fork springs on a TLR, not having the "special" tools from Suzuki specified in the service manual?
I bought a set of progressive springs from WP, but I'm not sure if it is worth trying to replace these without buying the tools from Suzuki, or try to...
I have taken the forks off the bike today to get the seals replaced.
I thought while they’re all apart I would stick a set of after market springs in there to help out.
What are the best springs for the job?
If you have any advise I would be grateful?
One pair TLR forks that had about 19,500km then rebuilt with 1.0kg/mm springs and revalve.Plus seals,bearings,oil etc.I spent AU$600 reworking these relatively low mile forks.
I am asking AU$450.
AU$ is currently about US.63 / .45GBP
International freight would be expensive,local not...
I just put in a set of Barnette springs in my bike, it really helped, then another set showed up, new in box, with my clutch kit. So I'd like to sell them ($20 + actual shipping?).
I've also got an airbox with the flappers taken out (could put them back in), a stock air filter that you could...
I have a set of TLR gold anodized forks. They came with a TL I recently purchased and the seller told me they have Ohlins springs. Unfortunately the right fork has some damage and is slightly compressed. No damage to the fork lower though. Left fork is in good condition with no damage...
Hi everyone,i'd just like to pick your brains if thats ok!! I'm ordering a Bitubo rear shock on the 22nd Dec and was wondering if anyone has some advice on a good set of progressive fork springs I could get to match.Can't afford a fork swap so just want beef up the fronts to match the new...
It includes dual valve springs, Ti top retainers, and bottom locators.
The stock spring installed at 1.440" and is 55 lbs on the seat and 147 lbs at 0.400" lift and 158 lbs. at 0.450" lift. The new kit installs at 1.350" and is 65 lbs on the seat and 168 lbs at...
I just got my clutch cam assembly welded together, and I'm told by a lot of people that I now need to shim the clutch springs. I understand the concept, but I don't know if I put the shims at the spring bases or at the end where you bolt the pressure plate on. :confused
Next question - do I...
