What's strange is that I didn't know Suzuki made a TL '100' S?

Thanks Paul, I corrected it.
How about trying to answer the question?

Is it the hose configuration, where one line goes to the right caliper, then from the right caliper to the left one?

all I can find is on the 1999 model,

-"it has Powerful staggered-diameter 4-piston front brake calipers with 320mm floating brake rotors."

The specs state that it has a single disk upfront.

Could this be what you are referring to?

Seriously, $50 says that's a typographical error. Any takers?

Yes Pete that's it!
It is strange isn't it? Theoretically this setup should present some problems, like unequal pressure to the calipers, but it seems to be working OK

Here it is..

I don't know how true it is, but I have heard that the right brake pads wear a little faster than the left.
