So I have been away for a while (old handle was Jaybirdxb12. The motor on my 07 locked up after 25k and it got pushed into the corner with all the other non runners and one day projects. I wanted something I wouldn't have to tinker with every couple of months, something that wouldn't leave me stranded, and I also wanted a liter bike. So I bought an 08 CBR1000 with 2300 miles and put 23000. I decided I wanted a Triumph and an adventure, so I bought a new 14 800XC Tiger. The problem is every bike I have ridden since (and I Like to do Demos) gets compared to the Uly. A month ago while driving my work Cage, I got passed by a Firebolt and it rekindled my Buell flame. I opened up Facebook to see what was out there when I found an 06 Black Uly with 15k on the clock, a Drummer exhaust, skid-plate, left side air duct, under seat insulation blanket, XB9 front sprocket, a Givi trunk, and it came with a cool Buell Jacket all for 2500. so I decided 2 Buells are better then one. I have many Buell questions to come, like what mods are the most recommended to keep my General running happy. should I move the brake reservoir? are the seat blankets worth wild? Should I reroute the crack case breather away from the air-box? It has already shot the belt off on my first ride and the fan sounds like crap. I replaced the belt and have a fan on order.

I just changed the O2 sensor on my 06. In order to do it you must remove the fan. The sensor can be had at any parts store. I picked one up at Advance Auto. It's a Bosch 12014. If you're replacing your fan I would go ahead and replace the sensor. They are pretty cheap and a pain to get to.

I've had better results with the NHK sensors but maybe that's just me.
Replace the throttle body shaft if it hasn't been done already.
I believe Tootal is the one who makes the upgraded one?
