Got this idea from one of the BMW forums I frequent:

What did you do for/to your Buell today? 


I'll start it off. 

I pre-wired my 12R for and Innovative LC-1 and wideband O2 gauge.  Just a wire bundle from the battery compartment to underneath the fairing.  I did put it in with the harness that runs by the neck - what a pain!

I also went ahead and tightened up some bolts that came loose and tidied-up some of the wiring up front as well.


So what'd you do today?

Have her at Road and Track here in San Antonio.  Having the suspension redone and a once over for the brakes and bearings and anything else.  I just dont have the time and these guys are pretty damn good at what they do.  Unfortunately, the stator went out again so gonna send it for a rewire and get another VR for it.  Will see what happens.

I was getting a lot of brake dust accumulation around the bearings and tight spots on the rest rotor so I took the rear wheel off and detailed that mess. Also cleaned inside the swingarm.

In the next day or two,  paint front fairing stay black instead of that ugly grey titanium color.

I did gloss black just this past summer - a HUGE improvement! - and it adds 1 HP!

I need to get the tool to take my wheels off...haven't cleaned in there very well yet...
