|V.I.N. (To aid in problem resolution. Will not be displayed or shared otherwise.) :||(Hidden)|
|Servicing Dealership:||my back porch|
|Performance Mods!:||Frankenstein'd & Trapp'd Kerker exhaust, SE adjustable ignition, 48/180 jets, SE slide spring, Pro-Series intake, XB Cams|
|Problems/Miles (Please be specific):||bought @ 4100 miles; heat shield had come off tank and melted on rocker box cover. Leaky oil-return O-ring, clutch engagement sometimes jerks from a stop - like it goes a little then suddenly grabs hard. Changed tranny oil, adjusted primary & clutch, but problem persists.
shifting often clunky, rear tires go bald down the middle pretty quick, leaving a \__/ shaped tire - may be due to skinny rear wheel! wear on front tire is even. Belt broke about 10K. Carb connector is not strong enough for PS intake - for the price, it should include a connctor with nylon cord reinforcement or something.
|Other Mods/Misc/Customization.:||yellow back half of seat from previous owner, Berkshire Widget plate-style handlebars, bar-end mirrors, "chunky" levers trimmed for 2-finger use, metro tank bag, highlit black cylinder & head|
|Favorite Rides (Roads and Routes):||The 3 Sisters (Leakey TX), Various twisty roads NW of Houston, Thurman Bend Rd. (Spicewood TX)|
|Why I do/don't ride a Buell:||corners are FUN! Research pointed to Blast as a perfect 1st road bike, and after 2 years I still heartily agree!|
|How can Buell improve their motorcycles?:||Adjustable preload & dampening front & rear, higher compression ratio, make all SE cams 1/2 price for Blast,
Higher intake port & better manifold/head port match, XB style quench chamber, valves & springs, use cylinder w/ thicker spigot so cases will be ready to accept big-bore jug, smaller Blast pro-series rear sprocket, spun aluminum pushrod tubes & billet Pegasus base!
wider rear wheel for wider/lower tire profile less wear down the middle...
and A TACH!!!
|Top speed on 2 wheels (mph):||127, per TX Highway Patrol radar|
|Preferred engine oil (brand/grade):||synthetic base 20w50|
