Hello!

I am Ciernit.
I have purchased my first bike and it is a project. Buell has been on my mind for a long time as the bike I wanted. So when an opportunity even as a decent sized project fell in my lap I turned on the idea.

I now own a 2001 Buell Blast. Heard all the shannanigans about every thought on whether to own this bike or not but it was a Buell and that's what I wanted.
So i am a beginner rider with a bike that will take me the winter season to establish as a safe ride and a legal ride. I'm excited and dont feel at all doubt that I will be ready for the spring riding seasonal legal and safe to hit the rode.

So I am looking forward to reading everyone's input and suggestions on how to accomplish my task and maybe along the way something I run into will help someone else.

Hello Everyone!
Just acquired a 2007 XB12Ss. It's got a few issues but I'll be working on putting this Baby into the sort of shape that I want. I really wish that I'd bought one way back when Buell was still in business.
I don't yet have an owners manual so I hope that here is an acceptable place to ask a question about the bike... In the area where the odometer, trip meters and time is displayed what does the "F 0.0" mean?
Thank You, RonLee

The F counter on the dashboard is distance ridden since the low fuel light came on. It will auto reset to zero after several minutes of the fuel light not being on.

Thank You Froggy! Now I know more.

Just today I had the flyscreen off and was shocked to find that one or another of the previous owners had done some... uh modifications to the wiring. Two pairs of relatively large gauge red wires and black wires that were simply cut. Time to get the multimeter out and check where the other ends are. Also discovered the exhaust servo missing from the airbox. I'm really not pleased about the substandard "work" that had been done but perhaps I can make it better.

This is the only place I can actually post since getting verified on here is more difficult than getting into fort knox. My 09 blast is nothing but trouble. POS won't even start and barely has any miles on it. Turns over but won't ignite. Changed the plug and same story. Seen light on the control module when attempting to crank then other times it isn't there. Is it pretty much the control module? Any help would be appreciated before I take this yellow heap of junk to the dumpster.

Ricketyrick-The knowledge vault or the blast section should be helpful. It was for my wife's Blast. When you get it figured out it is a great ride. One must be patient.

About 6 weeks ago I bought a 2009 Blast, it had 1200 KM on it, I just clicked over the 5000KM mark and that rear Pirelli is worn out. I'm over 70, so you know it isn't from doing burnouts. I guess the crappy tires on the F1 cars are just typical Pirelli tires.
Anyone have a suggestion on what size and make give more mileage? One other thing that turn signal switch is terrible and the whole technology of the bike isn't much better than my old first bike a 1963 Ducati 250, except for the brakes, they are very nice, one finger braking.

New P3 Blast owner...had an EX500 Kawasaki, and found this $500 Blast local. So now I'm a 2 bike guy. Have switched out the trans and main oil since it's been sitting since 2006 with only 1200 miles. (Divorced wife bike = sat in carport.) Put in a battery and it came to life electrically.... I'm going to put some Marvel Mystery Oil in the cylinder while I check the plug, and I've already swapped out the petcock and will have fresh gas in it. Basically a NOS bike. Hopefully there won't be many gremlins. I'll be in the Blast forum, lurking. Cheers, ~Ted in NC

So cool . . . and WHAT a find!

It's pretty much a bullet proof bike. . . .and, the good news, there is a wealth of information here. . . .

I suspect you're going to love it!

Many safe miles . . .

Hi there,

My name is Herman and i am from South Africa, i have being riding bikes for round about 34 years. I bought my first Buell a XB9 in 2006 and my second Buell a X1 in 2018. Some history regarding the X1, it belonged to my brother who bought it in Germany in 2000 its a Millennium edition no 577 of 800. I still have the original bodywork in that is in silver and the fly screen is signed by Erik Buell.
