Hello all
Iím about to do it again
Buy another. This time 08í 1125R.
Iíve struggled to choose between a XB12R and the 1125R
I have had a XB9R and a 09 1125R for a while so Iíve ridden both some miles.Both great machines as I believe all Buells are.
I still have my 00 M2 I donít think I can ever sell.
I think It boils down to craving that 146hp adrenaline producing power plant.
The bike has 25k on the clock but was a one owner up to 2021.
Has the race ECM with Barker exhaust and clutch Upgrade
Itís very clean and been well maintained.
Iíve always trusted my 45 degree Sportster V twins for durability and longevity. From what Iíve read the rotax should go the distance as well.
Any of you 1125 high milage guys or known of high milage rotax engines have advise on longevity ?
I maintain and repair my machines and use Amsoil
Thank you for any feedback

Found a post I must have overlooked from high milage 1125 riders back in 2012.
Great to read about them raking up the miles and smiles. I'm looking forward to it.
