    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Looked through 400 pages of the PDF file (eyes gone bad or the pages blurry) and want to know if there is a list of torque settings. I am particularly after all the engine covers and the chassis bolts. I have about 90% of what I am after but haven't got the engine/sprocket cover torques on the...
  4. Too much torque is just about right...

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I picked up a new chain and sprocket last Thursday and put them right on, (now at 17/43). Then it rained for three days. Stopped long enough that the road was dry so I just took a test ride. Probably got less than five miles before the road was all wet again. I only rode the bike once after...

  6. The 100% more torque at idle mod?

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Ok not really, its more like 500% more, but there is a catch. I need to get this out of my brain before i forget, since i did this along time ago. When i first got my TL i loved it but the second gear stalling around a corner thing really drove me nuts and the amount of clutch slipping to get...

  14. Torque Dyno Corrections

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Is torque a correctable measure? Can the same formula be used for hp and tq corrections? My bike made an uncorrected 113hp. Someone posted that corrects to 129. 129 is 115% of 113. My bike made 68lb tq. Using the same formula that corrects to 78lbs. Is that fairly accurate?
