View Full Version : Lost a roll-on to TL1000R
08-04-2003, 01:09 PM
I'm a bit depressed..after several roll-on comparisons with a buddy of mine on his TL, the Tuono just couldn't hang. We tried 4th, 5th, and 6th..at low revs, mids, and high rpm.. I had the best run when comparing high rpms, but I would have thought that there would have been better performance than this.
I've got a 15t front sprocket on order, so I hope this helps some, but the suzuki had stock gearing also.
On the positive side, the Tuono seems to really tear up the corners though. Very stable and agile, with plenty of ground clearance. The 207RR's are pretty sticky too. No complaints in this dept.

Does the TLR have stock exhaust? Have you de-restricted your bike yet? I would suggest a 44 on the rear instead of a 15 tooth CS - it shortens your wheelbase a bit though. I think I have a new 15 at home if you want it.

we both have slip-ons and remaps, and I have pulled out the airbox restrictor already. Is there anything else to do on the Tuono's?
I'll take your sprocket by the way...shoot me an email with your phone number or something. firstname.lastname@example.org

Change the airbox to an EVO race or a Renegade and you will find much more acceleration. Add an FP chip and the roll-on test results will be much different.

will I need the regulator, guage, and other stuff they are recommending, or are those just extras that probably arent needed?

You may need to re-adjust the fuel pressure. Some bikes are a little too high. Should be 48 psi. I would at least check the pressure to be sure. If the pressure isn't right you will have some performance (lack there of) problems that will require a fuel pressure modifier.
It's worth the money and effort if set-up correctly. Hell, it's worth it just for the added smoothness (pulls clean from 2500 up) alone.

While the one I put a few hours on in '98 didn't exactly overwhelm with its low-end and mid-range the TL1000Rs did post some extremely impressive peak dyno numbers in magazine tests. I would think a decent Tuono could beat it in roll-ons and lose out only as revs increase...

i've since gone to a 15 tooth front sprocket and clipped the wire (kept hearing there was no wire to clip on tuonos) and she's running much better now. Not sure if I'd win against the same TL1000 again, but at least I made an improvement.
I guess I'm just a little disappointed in the Aprilia's power but everything else is wonderful on this bike. Then again, this is my first twin, and first italian bike so maybe I expect too much in the hp dept.

Don't go gettin' your dauber down...make sure it's making what it oughta by having a real professional tune it...a run to AF1 Racing might make a fun roadtrip, especially the ride back home. BaWHOOM!

Is there a place in the Los Angeles area to get a real professional tune it? AF1 Racing is a little too far. Thanks.
