  5. Clutch engages ALL the way out

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    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).

  10. Replace fork springs on TLR

    Help Forum
    Hi, Anyone has experience with replacing the fork springs on a TLR, not having the "special" tools from Suzuki specified in the service manual?

  13. TLS Fork Springs

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Hi All 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? Ohlins? Hagon? WP? Hyperpro? If you have any advise I would be grateful? Thanks
