  • TLR Owners beware

    If you own a TLR or S and it is 97-2000 you may have a issue with the cam sprokets. There is a spring that rubs them and causes them to weaken or some shit. the new ones are slotted and will not have this issue. Suzuki apperantly has had issues with this and issued a recall. check with your local dealer to get if fixed or ask about the recall. I never got my notice!

    They should replace the cams with the updated ones 2001-2003 bikes already have. I am getting a coppy of the recall and will post more infoemation on it soon.

    Im pissed cause this just fucked my double trackday I have been looking forward to for months.

          My TLR has over 50,000 miles on it and it is 3 years old. I have not ridden it in the last 9 months due to the countershaft breaking in late Nov.
          These are the only issues I have had.

                Are you talking about the springs in the cam scissor gears?
                They've been known to fail, but basically it just makes a bit more noise.
                I haven't heard of it causing any serious problems.
                The Fiche does list different part numbers for the cams, so.........
                Post up that recall when you get a chance

                  this is all i could find....

                  '96-98 Suzuki motorcycles
                  Fuel leak could cause fire.

                  Models:
                  17,007 motorcycles made 9/95-3/98, including '96-97 GSX-R750, '97 GSX-R600, and '97-98 TL1000S.

                  What to do:
                  Have dealer install redesigned fuel-pump gasket.

                  and.....



                  '98 Suzuki GSX-R750W and TL1000RW motorcycles
                  Fuel hose could come off and stall engine.

                  Models:
                  6,087 motorcycles made 9/97-4/98.

                  What to do:
                  Have dealer replace rubber fuel hose with hose made of metal and rubber.

                    My 99 TLS sat in storage for almost 4 years. I'd better call the local dealership to check the bike's history.

                        Yeah, my 99 TLR was starting to sound pretty noisey around 20.000klm. Updated to a 2001 model. so far, so good...
