  1. Did some Winter Maintenance

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    It was one of the best winter weekends you could spend in North East Indiana when it is about 15 degrees outside. Got up Sat morning and started to do a valve job. Over the course of the last 2 weeks, I have slowly been taking it apart to get it ready to be able to do the valves. Took all...

  3. My winter clutch project

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I've never taken apart the clutch on my TLR yet. After doing some reseach, it looks like I might as well redo the entire thing all at once. Anyone have any recommendations whether or not to go with this full Barnett kit...

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I have put the pig up on the rear stand and taken her apart. I took the rear subframe off in hopes to find a thinner looking rear to match up. I talked about making it a bobber of sorts but the little lady doesnt like she wont have room to ride. I pulled the gas tank and drained it. My plan...
  6. Winter time tinkering

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I moved the tiller from the shed down into my basement for the winter so I can work on it. Inspecting the valve clearances is on my checklist. Is the valve cover gasket an o-ring type? Can it be re-used? I need to make up my list of parts to order.

  9. Winter Paint

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I will be repainting my TLS this winter. I do not have photoshop or I would post pics of my idea but am leaning towards Competition Orange (think Dodge Challenger SRT8) with a grey racing stripe and black pinstripes. Or maybe white stripe with black or grey pinstripes. Thoughts?
