That's great news.

I'd also put a plug in here for Lance and St Paul HD. SPHD are great folks, so I urge everyone to support them, especially when you need big dollar Buell stuff!

I may be mistaken but I think the dealers order from Vintage Parts and I've heard you can order from them directly. Vintage Parts just has all the old Buell Stock from HD now.

Just to be clear, HD isn't making new Buell parts, they're just selling you parts from some already existing stash?

>>>HD isn't making new Buell parts, they're just selling you parts from some already existing stash?

I think that is inaccurate.

Did they not recently source XB isolators?

HD is still making new Buell parts. They claim they will continue to make them as long as they sell and they can keep the manufacturers price under control. The new date for discontinuing the line is 2020.

Wish they'd make some new right rear isolators for tubers. Get the price back under $50 for a set.

Really wish they'd get some new brake parts. My calipers and master cylinders are in pretty rough shape and could all use a rebuild. That might be more of a Nissin/Brembo/PM thing, but whoever it is...

FLT isolators are the same as tubers. $11.00 a piece. Just put a set in my s3.

All 3, or just the rear?

Lance is the above statement about FLT isos correct are they the same as the updated tuber iso

AFAIK, the 'good' rear tuber isolators are Buell specific. Those ears keep the frame from dropping on your rear tire if the isolator rubber tears. Unnecessary, and probably in the way, on a HD.

Yep, the FLT isolators (also available from drag specialties) are similar to the original Buell ones. They don't have the heavier rubber or "ears"

Sounds like the good buell ones need to be pitched to the FLT riders as an upgrade. That way production of the good ones continue and availability (maybe price) improves.
