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.

Scott, thank you very much for all the help!
I'm going to see what I can resolve on my own this weekend.

I found that the release plate assmbly cracked at the stem (36731-91), I'll post pics soon.

I've printed all the tips and everything from BadWeb. I'm going to do all the work myself so I know its done properly.

Hopefully that helps. I'll post the results

Oh, and I'd like to add. If your a SoCal shop (that I havn't been too) and you can help fix my bike, since I'm out of cash, I'll post your banner on my site OcMoto.com in exchange for the help.

Same goes for Buell920 or any other BadWeb Bueller. You guys have all been great help!
