1997 Suzuki TL1000S
Looking to get another low mileage one
TPS sensor had to be adjusted often.
Eats rear tires and chains (normal for a twin).
Ridding the TL1000s was a ton of fun.
I had an after-market exhaust and love the sound.
The above mentioned TPS sensor was adjusted at least 4 times in the 17k miles I put on it; what a pain.
The best change I made was to fit some better brake pads.
The roll on power made traffic easy to deal with, without changing gears all the time.
The riding position fit me fine (5'10").
Overall my this has been my favorite bike ever, and I have rode quite a few. A bit savage, but once you get to know it, nothing but fun. This bike actually has a personality or character, which is something you can't say about most bikes these days.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
