Hello, I know this sub-section isn't heavily frequented anymore but I was wondering if there was a general FAQ or a set of guidelines on what to look for RE buying a used TL1000R ?

I've got the general specs and info on the bike but was looking for more of a "used buyer's guide," specific to the TLR, if you will.

I searched this sub-section of the board and took a quick look over at the TLplanet and TLzone message boards as well (in addition to Google).

Thanks! :cheers



FWIW - Here is what I have come up with so far. Any others to add?

Check the fuel tank. Pop it up, check the baseplate of the pump, make sure there's no leakage.

Then the usual things you look for in a bike.

Check the clutch lever seal, those can leak.

I've had mine for 2 years, and the only problem I had was a fuel pump gasket leak. not bad.

Where'd you find one, and post pics. :wait

^ Thanks for the info! :thumbup

Haven't purchased it yet but one popped up for sale locally (Metro Detroit); strongly considering it, but wanted to do my homework on 'em first! :)

PM me the info, there's a good chance I know of, or can find history on this bike. (I has connections)
