Maybe they just switched the heads. Which on an S1, doesn't really matter, Pammy (CycleRama) or Dan (NRHS) can put you ahead of where the stock heads were no matter what is on there now.

Rocker box gasket replacement is a right of passage. : ) Your crank seal will be leaking soon also. And see if all your exhaust header studs are still there.

It seems to put out alot more oomph than a 1200 sportster i owned a while ago. It has pretty low mileage, just over 12k- amazes me what some people can do to a bike in 12,000 miles.
I plan to pull the rocker box covers, cam cover and primary cover this winter to have them powder coated.
My old sportster had 60k on it and never had to do much of any engine work to it.
I guess im not opposed to pulling the heads, i have a cracked upper motor mount bolt that needs welded any how.

Keep an eye on that front upper motor mount, you really don't want that to break. And if it has too much play, it can destroy the head.

Glad to be back on a Buell after a few other brands; originally had a 1998 M2 and now on a 2009 1125R. Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Greetings, all!

I was pointed here by Chuck from the Wheelnerds to help handle all my Buell questions and help build my knowledge-base until I buy a Buell in the near future. . .

I look forward to learning from all of you!!!

Welcome Motosquirrel!

Tell us a little about your bike history, and what your goals are for your new ride?

The XB platform is pretty amazing. I bet 80% of the parts are common between an XB9SX and an XB12X, but the bikes couldn't feel more different. Both excel in their niche. And used bike prices are getting crazy low, I just saw a solid low milage 2006 XB12X with luggage for under $3k. That's KLR money.

Anyway, tell us about your goals, or tell us what kind of bike you already have in mind, and we can offer some advice. Some might even be good. : )

@machine--
Pity it was on a trailer, what was the matter with it?


Kidding, of course, but the weather in the pic looks beautiful...

Hi, I am Mike. I am from SC. I have a Buell XB12R and recently bought a turbo kit for it. I am looking for someone who can either assist me in my build or knows someone who can. I greatly appreciate it.

Hello.. I am a new rider and I bought a Buell Blast as my starter bike. I bought my bike from another 40+ woman whose husband bought it for her as her starter bike.

Been trying to find other owners/riders here in Toronto but I haven't had much luck.

Plan to take a refresher course as I haven't taken her out due to nerves and shyness. (Don't mind the mistakes; it's having them in the midst of traffic that worries me some..)

Someone at the local bike forum suggested that I check here, even though he thought the forum was 10 years out of date.

So glad to have found the site... :0)
