they come with a clear trim, have a look on me facebook pics chad, theres the iridium screen on 3 or 4 of the bikes i had lol. Well worth the £30( £35 ish with postage ) direct from german factory, the instructions are a good laugh to try and read (no english) but hey! and they look better than the puig in my eyes as there a double bubble not just a bubble screen thumbs

Alloy..

Although the aluminum-truss style frame looks as thought it was borrowed from the TL1000S, it has been designed specifically for this bike. According to Suzuki, the truss-style frame, with its low weight and high torsional rigidity, takes better advantage of V-twin power delivery characteristics as opposed to the heavier twin-spar frames found on in-line fours. Although Suzuki wasn't confident enough in their design to incorporate it into the TL1000R, the truss frame is a great fit for the 650 engine. It's lighter and 20 millimeters shorter than the TL1000S frame, and it places the front wheel closer to the center of the motorcycle to produce quicker steering characteristics.

bling bling, but a few issues.

screen came looks lush but looks like its for a light 1" bigger so going to machine the brakcets to have a longer slot to lower the largish gap betweehn the light and screen




also belly pan came, but cant work out to save my life how it sits! got anooyed came inside and solked, so ill give it a crack in a new few days.


best mod of all


yes i know bit dirty round edges, will polish them doing it bit at a time.

Hey Chad have you ridden the SV in anger yet. Once you have done it up take it out & ring the nuts off it befor u flog it. They handle sweet & are really agile and make great track day bikes.

ARGH?!!!!!!! censoredcensored

Getting well annoyed now, got bike out for snow pic, went to start it to take it to a better spot and it had an air leak, went to sort it and where inlet screw was corroded it chewed up and its the one that you have to ge through between the frame Sad

then battery died, and cant fin the charger,

belly pan still wont sit right ??

and wose of all i blame matt for this Laughing the screen dont fit. my rev counter sticks out the side when it goes back on so got to cut a massive chunk out of the screen, and then it sits ntoo high so need to cut it and srill more holes, guna be an arse to do head bang

heres the gap opn the screen, and wont sit straight as catching on speedo bracket before speedo is even on

okay bit fo progess selling belly pan as cant get it to fit how i want, so get my money bac selling it, use money to get on road and i may make a custom one seeing as im almost finished at college a few months early i can do my own bits.

took those white stickers off as didnt go with the bike, so puit couple black ones on the frame, however some annoying person kept putting his head in the pics (ashley)




some pics of the bike yesterday and ash having a play on it.




that was yesterday still had old indicators etc, so done bit today, but maionly tidied garage.

picked these renthals up for £5 off a mate, need a clean but pleased with the price. well are copys but will do the job


new mini front indies, they only had carbon, but got it around my clocks etc so will blend in


now the bike in its current state forks are smooth now went to 400 grit but takeing them off for some serious tlc, and put new dust seals with protectors on

Screen looks nice now its on! good fit by the looks of it :P , normally they fit any bike with a slight alteration of the bracket ( on a bandit they just need the tiny slotted bit bending )

depends on copper been pulled 4 times, once as a groups

1st, he said i was rasceing but i want, all cos my mate blasted off the long was and i cruised to the shortcut way, he was quite rude about it, but gave me a warning i ddint deserve,

2ndly being too noisey, near a funeralm, i wasnt noisey hes a local biker cop who picks on smaller bikes as was on my 50, he nods at me on the 600.

3rd was speeeding just a nice warning

so not to bad more talk tos except hasting

out group got pulled liams l plate had snaped luke didnt have any, both go 3 points, and he had a right go, but liamk you could se where it snapped but he wouldnt havge it. so i think it depends on the copper
