picked up this track-ready tls last weekend but this is the first time i've had a chance to play with it and take pics


it's kitted with some sweet gear for the price i paid. the wilbers shock is trick!


it's got an unusual steering damper that i need to change. it's far too heavy and the short stroke is resticting the steering lock

there's a couple of reminders of it's racing past, this axle retainer...

...and an r&g toe saver

the reasets are quite nice too, i think these were fairly pricey back in the day


so there it is! i'll have to get a van to transport it to the tracks (the closest to me is Knockhill, about 150 miles away) and then i'm good to go:D

maybe, i'll see how well they work first. i might swap them for the ap set-up on the other tl if they're not up to the task cos the ap stuff isn't really suited to road duty.

Usually not a fan of the Yellow TLS, but with the race plastics, looks pretty sweet! Should be lots of fun on the track :hail

Looks good.
Another way to keep the axle and spacer together is drill a couple holes on opposite corners of the spacer and run some safety wire over the axle.
Works pretty well and is very simple.

Nice!! What brand of fairings is that and do you happen to have a shot of the rear fairing/undertail?

Greetings

i'm guessing they are skidmarx or race products. there's no makers marking and i didn't get any info about them:O

i deliberately didn't take pictures of the undertail because it's just the stock item that's been cut up and doesn't look pretty!

i think they're comparable to ohlins in price although this one has hi/lo speed compression damping and a degree of preload adjustion on the shock instead of the SOAS. i don't know if they make one for the tlr though...

Thats what i figured. I saw that and have been poking around. I'm not into hardcore track days (yet) so i dont know if i would need all that functionality. I already sent them an info request :eek
