New Job ups and downs........

Well as many of you might have noticed I have not been posting as much lateley.... I have been working 60+ hours a week but I am raking in the dough again which is a greatly needed thing... I am starting to look for a newer bike since mine is still in the process of being fixed... with less time to search for parts and less wrench time I am thinking about selling my cbr to a few of my buddies who want to stunt it.... and since the weather will be getting cold in MA and that 4 letter word SNOW will be creeping up in the coming months it's time to steal a deal from people who have bike payments but have to store the bike.. they all try to sell this time of year up here...

ONE OPTION...



$4500... The time has come to sell my baby. As the title says, an '00 TLR w/ about 16k on the clock. Runs wonderfully, but could use a new chain. Other than that she's got a carbon fiber front fender, gel seat, Yoshi RS-3 bolt-ons, flush mount signals, undertail kit, frame sliders, double bubble screen (black tinted screen included) and a SATRE. Stock seat and cans will come with. Standard Yellow '00 color scheme. I'm pretty busy but will get some more pics up as soon as possible.


ANYONE HAVE ANY FEEDBACK ON THE TILLERS CIRCA 2000???????

REMBER THOSE WHO ARE NO LONGER WITH US AND KEEP THEM IN YOUR THOUGHTS AND YOUR HEARTS.

From what I know, they are powerful, but also heavy, and are known to go into vicious tank-slappers... get a damper on that bitch pronto if you buy it.

I'd hit it! I consider the TLR a classic. It would be really cool to pull in at bike nights or rides on somethin' different. Every other bike is a GSXR600/750, ZX6, CBR6, GSXR/R1/RR. Plus they sound great.

The rotary damper that serves the purpose of rear shock was pretty inefficient, especially at a race pace, so many owners did the Penske conventional shock conversion. It is a touch on the heavy side but styling and sound kinda makes up for that on the street. It is a big torquey twin but the steering damper isn't a bad idea...

I thought they put a damper on it after they were sued?

i'd rather have a 2003 or 2004 SV1000 for around that same money, maybe a tad more, with the full fairing kit.

True RC-51 > TLR But if the TLR is your thing then go for it.

2002 ZX6R, Shark Skinz, custom paint, Ignition advance plate, Shift kit, Yoshimura TRS Full race with Duplex header, K&N, 14/40 gear and sprocket, Ivans jet kit and Dyno tune for 103hp at the wheel. 110hp with 110 octane!
