This is a cry for help.
I have an 05 XB12R with nemerous problems. I dont even know where to start. I think they are all small problems that can be fixed by someone who knows what there doing.
Problem is no on in SoCal that works on a Buell knows what there doing. Exluding American Sport Bike because they are not a service shop.
I am on the brink of selling my Buell and going Jap as much as I hate it.
So is there anyone in SoCal thats willing to take a day to help me fix my buell in exchange for a few beers or dinner/lunch? I'm not asking for someone to do the work for me, but rather someone that can tell me what to do or whats wrong with the thing.
I think I've already spent more on parts and repairs than the bike is worth. This is because the shop I go to is not familar with Buells and uses the guess and check methodology.
If anyones up to it, email me shaiss at gmail dot com, call me 714-270-2782. I know theres someone out there that knows what they're doing that can help a fellow bueller and thats willing to do it out of kindaness.
I'm sure theres a good dealer out there, but unfourtunatly I've spent so much money already that I've ran out.
So if your reading this thank you and please pass it on.

Having a friend walk you through this stuff is both valuable and fun. I hope you find someone local who can help you out.
Do you own a service manual for the bike? If not you should get one.
Also, post a list of the problems you are having.

The service manual has become my best friend
I have the parts manual too. The exploded views help.
I'll get to making a list tomarrow

I'm up in San Dimas. I'm not sure that I would call myself any kind of expert. But email me a list of things that you want to look at and we'll take it from there.

Doerman, thanks for the help!
I'm still thinking my clutch is a bit off as well as the suspension. You'd have to ride it to know. I'll try to make it up to san dimas, its only 20 miles from Anaheim.
Let me know if you have any time durring the week after 4pm or on a weekend. Thanks again!
