Hello,
My name is Frank,
I live near Frankfurt in Germany. My english is far away from perfect, but I hope you'll understand my discriptions.
I've been working on my TLR for nearly 2 Jears now. My target was and still is building a TLR lighter and as strong as a Duc 1098.
To reach it, I redesigned the Chassis, a 1140 Motor is in work, and many other things I have problems to discribe in english, but I will do my best to do this later. For german speakers (and readers:)) :This is the link to my thread on the german TL 1000 board: http://www.tl1000.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=14929&sid=b232df975af47da2fe2465a7dbe3e835

At the moment I have nearly finished the Chassis. My Friend Wolli, he is the german TL-Pope:hail is working on the 1140ccm Motor. Target: 165 hp on the clutch.

Here are pictures of chassis with a enginedummy:







Now it's getting complicated for me, I try to explain my modifications:

The frontfork is a mixery of modified original TLR an GSX-R 1000 K8 parts:
The tubes are original TLR, the steel tube is coated with carbon (WC/C), the aluminium tube is black hardcoated plus extra PTFE layer. The fork bottoms are OEM GSX-R1000 K8, the cartridges are special parts by Andreani with 25mm diameter. The triple clamp yoke is cnc milled with a variable offset by BKG. The Wheels are the latest 6-spoke PVM forged magnesium. Brake radiators cmc by Brake tech. Calipers and maste brakecylinder from Brembo.

The rear suspension is also a mixery: Öhlins and Wilbers. The mods are too hard for me to discribe it in english now, sorry.



The rear swingarm is fitted with new rear ends, constructed by me and CNC milled. These Ends are 30mm longer than the oem's, The chain adjusters are constructed to mount the rear brakecaliper on the right side and to adjust the rearwheel, when the rear axis is removed.




I hope you enjojed the Story. At the end I have a question: Rufer told me that someone here fabricated inserts for the TLR mainframe: for the headsetangle and the hight of the swingarm. Can anyone tell me who it is?

Thanks, Frank

Hi Frank!! Nice to see you around here. Excellent machine of course!
PS: The inserts from Vandriver are swingarm excentrics, not headstock inserts.

Greetings
Rufer

Harris do (or used to do :O) adjustable stearing head yokes and inserts.

I have them on my TLR trackbike, not for sale unfortunately.

I'm very interested in that rear suspension linkage though :confused looks rising rate :dowhat does it work, and how well?

Keep up the good work! :thumbup

What type of steering head adjustment are you looking for? I've run both Attack and Kosman adjustible clamps. They do trail adjustments only but I found they were very effective for improving tailoring the handling of the bike. It's a simple enough design that I'd really recommend any brand with the right size and a few different eccentrics.

Kosman

Attack
