    2. Front forks re value etc RT from KSS will be the man for the job and parts supplier for #1.

    Later (when bank recovers)
    Rear hugger undertail tidy aka cosmetic touches.

    Just purchased a 97 TLS and by Christ the brakes are found wanting.... Any recommendations on where to purchase some braided lines?

    Christ won't help you. And his dad rides a hardly so brakes are not much of a feature. Suppose everyone or thing gets out of his way.

    RF900, Late GSXR11 etc will give up its Nissin 4 pots. I just bought some for my RGV to replace miserable Tokikos.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    Nah, SRAD gixxer will go. 320mm rotors on the TL. So RF won't work.

    Sorry if disinformation. Usually they just present different fork lug spacing and run similar calipers I thought. Like R1 calipers fit older 320mm Yams despite early R1 being 298mm from memory of blurb.
