Moving everything from the WTF to here

Planning to upgrade to a 1000cc bike, Yamaha R-1 due to the longer frame length and I'm a tall bastard (6'6"). Any advice?

I've put 10,000 miles on it with no issues,most of that riding with friends on weekends doing 300-500 mile daytrips.

This bike is an exercise in self restraint. The faster you go the faster it wants to go and it is completely composed at 140mph ( still has almost 50mph left at that point ). My best advice ?

Respect it,as it WILL NOT forgive or suffer foolish control inputs.

My other opinion is that you'll not need to supercharge it or make a whole bunch of performance mods. A bike like this will barely ever be ridden to it's potential anywhere but a track. And even then most people don't have the skill such riding would require.



My bad for the thread jack...back to WTF's !

You might want to raise up the handle bars and get a corbin seat, but that will only get you so far before your ass, knees and ankles want to kill you.

Wasn't the TL 1000 Kraps machine??

Why is it bad? All my research is from 3 years ago when I was originally going to upgrade to a 1000, little behind on current stuff.

No, no.... Bad ass. Those 2 cylinder race bikes were a good machine. Yeah, a member posted a picture of it. Dont see many since they haven't been produced for some time. A bit more rare than an rc51. I would love to get my hands on one. And you were asking about the R1, a great bike also from what I hear.

R1's are a good bike, but seem to be a dime a dozen.

The TL1000s is fairly rare and just so much fun. I have a shit eating grin on my face every time i ride it. I've ridden a lot of bikes and none of them have that same sound as the v-twin sport bike. I would love to have an RC-51 as well. There is something about the that sound.

Here is me with my bike at the track. I wish they had picked a better corner to take pics.

I had the pleasure of riding this, its a TL1000 converted to pikes peak side car race bike. The exhaust went through a magnaflow car muffler. Best sounding bike I think I've ever heard.

The dime a dozen thing on the R-1's doesn't bother me, I'll be doing a lot of aesthetics to it. It'l definitely be one of a kind when I'm finished. Much like my Tacoma.

Something tells me I need to hear one of these TL1000's.. I'll check out youtube.

And Steven your link/pic just shows up as a red x. Not sure if it's my work comp or bad link.

TL1000R > TL1000S.

They're heavy as fuck and not very nible as far as liter bikes go, and they have engine issues sometimes, but fun as fvck.

I lovethe R's too, but the at the time i got it, the S was much better for insurance. The S weighs in around 490 lbs wet and I think the R was as heavy if not heavier. That thing is one hell of a work out at the track.

But it doesn't mean the R is any faster

Quote from the link above
Quote:
tls has single throttle body injectors where the R has dual, not a big difference. r has 6pot calipers where as the s has 4. there is quite a bit of small stuff but not a wealth of major stuff. the R is abour 20-25lbs heaver than the S. i have an S with a full sustem on it and some other misc stuff. my friend had an R with a half systerm and some misc stuff. both geared stock. my TLS beat out his R by about 2 bike lengths
