  • Its hERE!

    Remember my post about the $1000 TLS? Well, I finally made it home. 29 hour drive to get the bastard (i mean 'baby') home.. i started tearin into it today.. i got her all stripped down and trying to get the damn motor out and i find where the frame has been rewelded! ..dammit.. then i start realizing theres bits and pieces here and there missing.. sigh..

    but the full akro system and 2 sets of NEW tires he threw in sure makes up for the little bits he forgot to tell me about.. you can DEFINATELY tell someone has had this engine out that didn't know what they were doing.. very rough on the bike..

    the guy i bought it from put all new plastics, brakes, s.s. lines, rotors on the bike so it makes up for all the little things going wrong so far..

    I'm going to "attempt" to rebuild the engine myself. But I can't even get the damn engine out yet.. ...not sure HOW the hell i'll teach myself engine building101....

    can anyone hook a brotha up with an online or cdrom shop manual?


    i took a buncha pics..i'll post em as soon as they are developed..

            I take no liability if someone burns up his/her TL with Jarkko/Sparkko/plus mod It's safe if it's done right....

                      I have built and rebuilt a few TL motors. It isnt that hard. Just take your time and D/L the manual and parts fiche.

                      What year is the S?

                      Why do you have to rebuild it?

                      I ask for a reason. If you are going to have it apart, there are some parts you should replace if it is an older S. The parts form the R's are improved. Such as the idler shafts (1 oil hole compared to 2) Using a R oil pump... etc


                      Coming Soon!

                          The reason I'm rebuilding it is because the forward cylinder is frozen.. why its frozen I have no idea until i get into the motor..the motor won't turn over at all..

                          i've discovered that this motor has been pulled before..it looks like its been out a few times.. i got a box full of engine parts that came with the bike and I don't know if the engine was ever FULLY put back together or if the covers were just thrown on and the motor stuck in the bike for pictures.. half the engine bolts are missing and each case cover is held on by a hand-tight single bolt..

                          not sure what all parts are there and aren't there..


                          here is a pic of the box of parts.. looks like a starter clutch..and some others..
