  2. Default 2007 Buell XB9R

    Been watching this bike on craigslist for a while, just never been able to hold money to buy one. After selling Lexy, I had a lump of cash. I managed to work with this guy and he let it go to me.










    Blast, XBlast and XB hehehe



    Did:
    -Began tuning via ECMSpy and ECMDroid
    -Got my front blinkers mounted last night, not as scared of popo anymore.
    -Cleaned up wiring behind front fairing.
    -Loosened the lower triple tree since my wheel was still tweaked a little. Loosened both sides, wiggled the wheel back and forth and kicked it a few times. Then tightened the tree back up. Now the bars and wheel are aligned perfectly.
    -Changed forks preload from 4 to 5.5, compression/rebound to 1.5 each and rear to #3 with compression/rebound to 1.5/1.25
    -Tighten mirrors
    -Straightened left bar
    -Found nipple
    -Removed belt guard
    -Tightened rattling front fender
    -White wire mod
    -Shimmed headlight bracket so it fits in the hole better
    -Replaced some chrome allen bolts with black carriage-bolt-style fasteners
    -Put two bolts in the seat instead of just one
    -Replaced bent bolts in airbox cover and used all four instead of two
    -Installed fourth bolt in upper shock mount bracket
    -Bolted down bracket holding front brake line
    -Re-installed front flashers
    -Plugged two nails in rear tire
    -Re-organized wires behind dash
    -Fixed key-latch for pillion
    -Installed tray inside pillion
    -Fixed battery positive connection (starts so much better now)
    -Removed extra bracket from tag frame
    -New Amsoil 20w-50 in engine and transmission
    -New oil cooler scoop
    -New Brisk BR10ZS plugs

    To Do:
    -Looking for rear tire and asking shops what they charge to press out/in wheel bearings.
    -Get a hold of lunaticfringe and get some of those EBC HH brake pads.
    -TPS reset
    -Strip paint
    -Springs for pegs
    -Acquire passenger pegs and mount the hangers/pegs.

    I wonder how the light output of that custom setup is compared to the OEM parts. It looks like you got a nice new toy!
    Still putting RB's heart into an XB frame?

    Tim Hackbert would love that paint job, me - not so much - not really a go army guy - still - nothing a good paint job couldn't cure, and I like the front fairing - a euro offering - one HID kit later and you'll have all the light you'll need, and none of the stock XBR lighting hassles to live with. That's a plus! Just have to sit down with ecm spy and show it some tuning love, a new rear tire - recommend Michelin Road Pilot 3, for the average rider they are beating everything out there, and what I would have went to, but I kept getting free new Pirrelli stockers, so never switched. Of course the obligatory oil change - top and bottom, probably adjust the clutch while I'm there just to make sure of stuff. Should be golden - I would just ride her for a bit after that to get used to her then new paint, frame sliders and axle sliders - and she'll be a keeper all the way through to grandchildren and their darn fangled electric motorcycles!

    Check the wheel bearings if suspect. My 03s rear bearings are shot and need to be replaced
