  • popular demand.. TLS/TLR Swingarm

    OK This one could go under Frequent mods.. Or questions asked a lot.. cause its a lot of work



    OK so this is Mitch's bike (SV996R) and Lance (TLRMAN) did the fab work..

    basically the swingarm doesn't bolt up.. SO they had a Doner TLS swingarm and they cut the tabs off if it.. then they cut the TLR tabs off.. then they welded the TLs tabs back onto the TLR swinger.. at the offset they needed.

    I'm sure they'll jump in, and give me the actual description of what went on.. but I think that's pretty much it..

    Is it just the suspension mounts that are different? I was under the impresion the pivot points were different as well. Cool though. Nice job guys.

      if it is just a matter of moving the suspension mounts to match up with the tls suspension, i thing i have found my winter mod project.

              having the 2 mounts moved is actually a pretty easy thing to do (if you know a good welder). the mounting tabs could even be cut off and reused, just moved out.

              might even be able to flip the connecting lever for the shock over to line it up. then only 1 set of tabs needs to be moved. of course, the other s\ide of the lever would need to be threaded, since the bolt threads into it, but that isnt too tuff either.

                you could just weld a brace o it and do the same, and then add a better rear shock....just my 2 pennies

                  i thopught the same at 1st, but as long as you can pick up the tlr swinger fairly cheap, it comes out cheaper. the design and fabrication of a brace for the tillis swing runs more than just moving the mounts on the tiller swing. would be different if you know someone who can do the fab work at "bud" prices though

                  if i could find the specs from someone who has braced a tillis swingarm, i could get a better estimate though

                      Also, the R swingarm is shorter. Smaller wheel base, better turn in, etc...

                        I'm not sure the TLS needs a shorter swingarm, considering it's pivot point in the chassis. It's pretty darned stubby as it is (and subsequently very sensitive to chain adjustment and rider weight affecting it's handling/sag). Eh?
                        It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a bad example.

                          i agree wondertwin. plus the s has more low end torque than an r. i like oldracers idea....

                            like this... S swingarm with welded on bracing. maybe i could find a rashed stock tlr swingarm and weld the bracing to my S. or any other bikes bracing for that matterhttp://www.tlplanet.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=7180

                              actually they are the same length (if the r swinger isnt a tad longer.



                              actually, i believe they start with the same swingarm and weld the tabs/brace on as needed. this would be the most cost effective route for suzuki



                              big thx to sv996r for the pics and info (been bugging him alot lately)
