Hi all, just got a TL1000R this week so thought it would be polite to join and say hello before I scan all the threads to get some info.
Last bike was a GSX1100EFE so the TL is all a bit different, can't find the carbs and it has brakes, as i found out by locking the back wheel up down the road on my first outing yesterday, but at least it has a choke! Whats that all about then, me thinks it was time for launch and they had a starting issue so whapped a 'choke' lever on it....
I will nip over and post a photo of the bike.

Regards
Chris

Welcome mate.I'm sure you'll find a few other differences as time goes on.
You'll be glad to know it's not a choke,but a high idle!

I worked out it wasn't a choke, but my manual said 'choke' which made me think it was a slightly late addition to the bike to fix a problem, it had me fooled when i read the book - 'Turn the choke lever all the way towards you'.
At this stage i must admit, the only reason i read the manual was i couldn't get it to start, new fangled thing with a clutch in sensor, never had that on the EFE!
