  2. Fork Rebuild question

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I haven't compared the TLS forks with the ones in this video, but can I use this video from Delboy's garage to rebuild my forks without using the specialized tools?
  3. Need the stock links to the rear suspension

    Want to Buy
    I would love to get my hands on the stock rear suspension links as the ones on the bike are too low for my height and ride style. I will buy them or trade mine. The ones on it are the 1-2 inch lowering links. Will send pictures on request

I have a completely standard suspension set up (as it left the factory, all standard parts, all standard settings (according to owner’s manual)) when I first got the bike it was set...

  10. Stock suspension settings

    What is the best settings for the front forks on my TLR. It seems a little soft in the front. I am 6' 4" 240 and I know the weight makes a difference. Mainly highway and spirited street riding. Is there a way to check and/ or change the fork oil? Sorry for the amatuer questions but I have only...
  11. TLR Front Suspension

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Does any one know what is involved with fitting the front forks from a K3/4 GSXR 1000 to the TLR? Will they fit in the TLR clamps? Do you have to use GSXR brake system ( calipers, rotors)? Can it be done in my garage or is best to be done by a pro? I'm not a certified mechanic, but my...

  13. New rear Suspension or Class?

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Ok the question is do I upgrade the rear suspension, or enroll into a 'total control' class? Both will improve my riding, but technique over mechanical? Lost resale of mechanical vs skill that can transgress to any bike? Just seeing what you all think.

    Group Buys
    We are running an incredible sale on our AK20 cartridges and Penske shocks. Unfortunately, we do not sell Penskes for TLRs or TLSs due to the fact that we do not have a link. This is a great deal for your other bikes, or let your friends know. If there is enough interest, I could possibly put...

  16. Rear Suspension

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I've got rear squeek coming from the suspension, so I'm pretty confident the SOAS [Spring On A Stick] is on it's way out (20k miles on bike confirms the deal really). It feels like the steering damper has died, but i'm pretty confident it's just lack of suspension on the rear being fed into the...

  20. squeak/creak between shifts as the suspension un-loads

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Having an issue with a squeak between shifts. It's only when I'm really hard on the throttle. Since I have the stock front end it does tend to dive a bit even though I have it setup pretty stiff. Hoping it's a common problem with an easy fix or something that gives me an excuse to re-valve and...
