  • I have landed on Planet TL!!!!

    Posted a week or so ago about which to get - a TLS or TLR!!! and thnaks for all your advice.

    Well last night bought a 2000 TLS in green with cracking refurbed gold wheels, irridium screen, Viper race cans (offensively loud!!) and power commander.

    Wanted one of these since they were launched so I am well happy!!!

    Already started thinking about what tasteful mods to do!!!

      congratulations mate show us some pics!

      as for the mods - i have the last custom made upper triple clamp for sale, so if you interested shoot me a pm. ( pic of it: http://i222.photobucket.com/albums/d...g?t=1277750694 )

      if you want to improve the handling - gixer forks swap and aftermarket rear shock would do that.

        Handeling feels OK at the moment - I'll start giving it some stick as I get used to it and see where we go from there.

        Steering feels heavy, so doing something about the damper may well be a first.

        Gixxer forks? 750/1000 ? and are they juust a straight swop? What about clamps, brakes etc...

          on tlzone you can find all the info about the fork swap. A member Sam sells the shim kits for these swops. you could use any gixer forks btw

          as for the damper - you could change the oil with some lighter 2,5w just like many of us did

              Sounds like clutch cover and pressure plate time.
