original S2 decals may still be available through the Stealership.
Check with St Pauls HD/Buell. they have a large online eBay store.

Don't forget the EBR Race Wear discount we passed out at our last meeting. Arizona, November, and California, December. You get a discount, a great Holiday gift, and we are supporting one of the only American made Motorcycles and Race Teams in the country.

Thanks, REX

Can the heads and jugs be pulled off an S2 without dropping the motor out of the frame?

According to my vin number, my S2 is a 1996 but the last six digits of my vin are 000006. Is this the sixth one made in 1996? I didn't think the last six digits started over each year so I don't know what to make of it.

>>> Is this the sixth one made in 1996?

No the last 6 digits start over with each new model year but do not run consecutively.

The "006" does not indicate the "6th one made"

Any pics? Do they have the old Pegasus logo with the legs up or the newer one with just the head and wing? The older logo on the bags would be S2 bags. The newer logo would be S3 bags, which there are tons of, because they were accidentally well over-ordered by Buell.

Looking for a decent S2 Brembo rear caliper and mount - previous owner changed to later Nissin which doesn't work at all - maybe because of the OEM Brembo master. Regardless, I really want to go back to the Brembo, as poor as those may be, just to stay original

Been away for a long time. Away from BadWeB. Away from my S2. Away from riding.

Trying to get my 96 S2 back on the road.

* Was there a service bulletin or something on defectively assembled PM front calipers? I have the seal kit but wasn't sure what special mojo needs to happen.

* Rotor side bearing on front wheel is loose in bore. Very strange. It turns on the bore but won't come out. WTF?

* Front isolator is hosed. Wondering if there's anything I should know before I order parts.
