        Very cool.

        With all the pics you share with your bike less than 40degree I'm surprised you still have stock wheels

          • I welded the split in my fuel tank. I drained it two years ago so figured it would be safe to tig it up.

            Swingarm and subframe are up for major surgery .

            Been a bit busy just finished two engineering diplomas so bike has been neglected.

            • Ripped out my old headlight relay harness and installed an Eastern Beaver kit. Very nice product BTW. Highly recommend. I'd have strung together my own again, but I can't find the sockets for the mini relays (same ones used on the fuel pump relay) that EB uses.

              strung everything through the left harness vinyl sleeve to maintain a clean install.
              both (hi/low) relays mounted on left side, upper fairing lower mount arm and new H4 sockets from there.

              installed 5pin relay as a starter switch cutoff.
              this relay provides power to a fuseblock installed on the battery case, so all non-starting required accessories (lights, usb charger and whatever else I decide to put on the other 8 plugs) cut off during starting operations.

              also managed to clean up the wiring around the starter relay and tuck most everything in the space behind it.
              got rid of a lot of unnecessary wiring from the previous setup.

              cleaned up the ignition coil relay wiring, getting rid of excessive lengths of wire that were previously just bundled up.

              rewrapped the T in the harness behind the gauge cluster. The tape was just done for.

              got rid of all the zip ties and used wax string to bundle wires IAW Air Force aircraft maintenance practices.

              everything is crimped, soldered, greased and heat shrunk. No electrical connections were wrapped in tape. Lots of work to do it right, but I now have the peace of mind that is was done to a higher standard than usual.

                  • Tore down the bike again now that the relay I needed is here and the temps have dropped again. Got as far as cutting wires to length, installing terminals. Took apart the wrap around the harness behind the clocks and got the power wire to the usb port and the ground for the coil hooked up. Still need to hook up 12v/pwr and coil signal wires, then rewrap the harness. Not much to see in the pictures because I'm keeping everything hidden in the factory wire wraps except for the small portions between ends of the factory wraps and the whatever they are going to.

                    • Went and worked on the TLS trackbike project. Starting to realise it may be a lost cause. Thing has been severely abused. 6500 miles on the motor and its just not runnin right at all. May rethink using it as a track machine and just part it out and use My TLR

                      • Trouble shooted the B Bike on why it wouldn't fire.... Checked out the fuel pump and the main return line was off.. Bought new clamps and put it back in and back to life...

                        • * Tore down what remains of the TLR (post crash) down to the bare engine.
                          * Embarked on the projected 10 year task of locating, scraping, cleaning, and polishing, every inch of the bike.
                          * Spoke with a few surgeons regarding the risks in selling certain organs for OEM fairings

                          • I flew back to New Zealand end of last week and early this week removed the cover off TL1000S #2 for the first time since 2007.
                            It looks a little sad but no serious long term storage damage by the look of it and nothing a little buffing won't fix.

                              ....
                              Now there is an event that deserves a little fanfare.

                              What about #1?

                              Any chance of resurrecting it? Will it get a trip back to Oz?

                              • The other 1998 TL1000S is in there somewhere, there were a lot of things in the lock up I had forgotten about but will fly back at some stage and have some form of fire sale then look at a shipping container for the rest (including both TL's)
                                There would be the legal side of importation before hand.

                                I did grab my Lincoln V200T and removed the HDD from the stored desktop but can see but not access the files via a USB adapter so will take the lot to a shop tomorrow to have the contents transferred to an external hard drive.
                                I seem to remember there were over 7000 TL related pictures on it (HDD)

                                The problem I have now is to many motorcycles or projects let alone adding more so some will have to go.
