  3. Clutch won't engage???

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Took my bike to get tires changed and guy tells me my clutch fluids were empty so he refilled them. Now 2 weeks later it has all drained out somwewhere but I can't pinpoint a leak. A friend says it might be a slave cylinder?
  4. Saddlebags that won't fry?

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I'm looking for some soft saddlebags, but with the exhausts up so high on the TLR I'm afraid anything I put on will catch fire. Are there any bags out there that either fit without touching the exhausts, or can touch them without melting?

    I finished doing the fuel filter mod the other night and then yesterday the bike started up pretty easily and I rode it around 20 miles no problems, ran better than ever. Then today when I went to start it, it was stumbling like it wasn't getting enough fuel. It would crank and start to run...
  13. Rear brake won't bleed - frustrated

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    Just got a new rear brake pedal/ss lines and went to bleed my system. I've put a bunch of fluid through this damn thing and it's gotten no firmer than when I started. I get a little drag on the rotor when the pedal is ALL the way down, but I can still turn the wheel with one hand. Nothing is...

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I go down today to give the bike a jump (car was turned off), the battery was almost dead.

  15. PC3 installed, runs better, now cranks slow and won't start!

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    A couple of days ago I installed the PC3 on my TLS. It started a little harder so I was eventually going to re-map lowest RPM and TP settings to see if it would help. Well, I'm trying to get the map in it and I don't have a 9v battery to load it so I have to do it while it's running. I'm out...

    After my recent "unscheduled stop and dismount" I'm looking to find cost cutting ways of getting my baby up and running again.
