TL1000R pistón in Raptor

Post by El Vikingo Tropical » Sat Feb 02, 2019 3:50 pm

I have to open up my engine as the rear cylinder has a metalic sound...
Si as I have the engine open why not change for some hi compression pistons!
I have just find for the TLR do they fit right in?
I have been looking at Wiseco, JE and https://www.spearsenterprises.com/sv1000-tl1000.html

Do you have anything to recommend?

I dont see why not, but you will obviously need to look at the possibility of needing a rebore so you wont be able to order them until you have it in bits :woot:

Oh and we used to use wiseco in the triumphs without any issues but it was 30 years ago! :oops:

Not sure if this may help but I'm pretty sure the engine in a Raptor is a TL1000S model X/Y/K1 - see https://www.raptorchapter.org.uk/viewto ... =11&t=5085

And looking at the same dealers spares site the pistons for the TL-S & TL-R have different part numbers i.e. 12111-02F00-0F0 & 12111-02F11-0F0 respectively. Now, whether this is because of a different bore/shape/compression I couldn't say.

Another thing I'd think about is if the TL-R piston 'works' with the TL-S valve timing. :?

Cheers,

That’s what I believe
Thank you gues for the feedback!
Another question is, prepare the Raptor engine spending +-1500€ or purchasing a used TLR engine🙄.
The cost is more or less the same..

We have an expression in the UK (probably the same in Spain) - Better the devil you know..

How about doing both ? repairing and a spare.

Hi Andy
I suppose your right!
I did measured valva gaps and everything is ok, I also pulled out the water pump (braking the bloody impeller) and clutch and every thing looks good!
Can it be that I’m a bit paranoias with the ticking sound from the rear cylinder :?

The bad thing is that ones at home I discovered that the piggyback reservoir hits the swingarm!
I really felt frustrated but then I phoned a friend who sells used parte, He will take my unit in change plus money giving me a nice more modern Öhlins
