Well after being away from Buells for 3 years, I have finally made a comeback. Tried a few bikes in between, 2004 Honda vfr800, 1999 xr600r supermoto, 2006 Kawasaki z750s, 2008 Aprilia shiver, 2011 Kawasaki ninja 1000. I just had to get back on a Buell, so I was able to find some one interested in trading their 1125r for my ninja 1000. Here she is, 08 1125r with 14k miles and only modification so far is a race ecm.

Congratulations, I have an 08 as well. (Stock exhaust with the appropriate Race ECM) In my opinion the ECM is the most important upgrade to make. Low RPM's are still a bit dodgy, but it's so much better than the OEM.

Excellent bike. I just sold my Jardine RT5 and put on a Barker's with the race ECM. WOW! What a difference...from idle up.
It just runs perfectly from bottom to top. Even the idle is better.....Ebay...do it.

BTW, I put in the decibel killer tube and turned the "spout" tip to face down, and it's quite acceptable. Loud but not annoying.

Thanks for all your comments!!

"Time for valve service has it been done yet? Nice clean bike I have one realy like it"

The previous owner said that the valve service had been done before him but that would have been at 11-12k which seems early.

I actually didnt like how alot of the exhausts looked and the barkers was my second choice. I ended up ordering the APH Performance Engineering exhaust. Hoping to get it this week and to have it on.

Make sure you get the race ecm to match the exhaust. The difference is well worth the cost and effort. Runs strong everywhere...so much better than the stock ecm.
