TL1000s power loss and stiff gearbox

I have a 98 TL1000S which last winter was left in gear whilst hibernating in the garage. It now has a very stiff gear change which changing the oil has not improved. Also in the last couple of weeks I have experienced two occaisons where there has been a drastic loss of power only allowing me to limp home with the engine running really roughly as if a plug has gone. Any suggestions please.

My '97 TLS keeps cutting out, when hot and I can't seem to find a reason why? I'm running it on Ultimate and the occasional tin of injector cleaner to try and help. friend of mine had a TLS and all he could offer was you get used to it!?!? It perhaps does this 2-4 times every time I'm out, always at lower it something that can be cured by a service at a Suzuki dealship? It's bloody annoying as I really like the 'bike, my first V-twin.

clutch slip

Is it a common fault with the TLs getting clutch-slip arond the 6,550-8,000 mark? gets a bit annoying when tring to put a bit of a wriggle on and nothing happens for a while.................I have to back off a touch and then try again. Is it just a clutch-spring change or plates as well? It's a '97 "R" reg, probably original clutch........................ Mark

Suzuki TL1000S many with Cracked Frames

Many, Many TLs have frames that have cracked, Suzuki have refused to repair mine even though it is near the headstock and I believe highly dangerous. I would like to hear from all the other UK riders and any advice to solve my deadlock with Suzuki will be appreciated.
