  2. Default I'm afraid I have no clever name for my bike, so: Mik's 2003 Buell Blast Build

    I have various threads for various mods I've done. I'm going to link to each of them in this thread as a reference point with finished product pictures in each post next to the link to the individual thread.

    Purchased my 2003 Buell Blast on 6/30/2011 with "2,921" miles on it. Got it home and found out the speedometer/odometer did not function due to a dirty sensor so actual miles are unknown. It was a bit worse for wear due to being a pit bike for a race bike team. I am the third owner.

    I went right to work changing oils, modding carb, airbox, etc, considering muffler mods. Found lots of missing bolts and started trouble shooting various things.

    Here's it is when I first got it.
