Description

Click here for an VINData Motorcycle History Report on this 2000 Suzuki TL1000S. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Following the success of Ducati’s V-Twin-powered racers in the World Superbike Championship, other major manufacturers followed suit by developing their own race-bred V-Twins. Suzuki’s first attempt at a performance-driven V-Twin model came in the form of the half-faired TL1000S in 1997.

The TL1000S earned such a “Widowmaker” reputation when it was released due to the unique rotary rear damping system which had some issues and prompted a worldwide recall to install a steering damper. You might think that this would have killed consumer demand for the bike, but motorcyclists are an odd breed. If anything, the Suzuki TL1000S became an instant cult classic with the mystique of a difficult-to-tame beast.

Most people think of Ducatis when they hear “V-Twin sports bike”. But this Suzuki changed some minds with 125 horsepower, 96 pound-feet of torque, and a top speed of 165 miles per hour.

Manufactured December 1999, this example is VIN: JS1VT51A6Y2100227; Engine: T501116063. The seller purchased the bike from a private party in Seattle two years ago. He is selling to thin the heard.


During his ownership the seller has covered approximately 1,000 miles. The odometer shows 20,677 miles.

Maintenance:
Prior to bringing the bike to Iconic, the seller states that he installed a D.I.D. 530VX3 chain and new JT front and rear steel sprockets. He notes that they’ve seen approximately 50 miles.

In preparation for this listing the seller had us change the oil and oil filter, flush and fill the brake fluid, and replace the right front turn signal bulb. The shop notes the following on their condition report:
