Just reached 5K miles on my XB12R.  Changed the transmission fluid with Formula+ .  It wasn't due to be replaced until 10K mi. but I couldn't be guaranteed the previous owner did it at 1K.

Also adjusted the clutch.  Thinking about installing new DCPR9EIX plugs.

Set of EBR fairings on the the way!

Getting a garage for both of them.
Pretty stoked for a workshop/garage that I can lock my stuff in and the Navy with ship to my next duty station for me.

El Camino! That would be sweet. Especially with a giant Buell decal in the rear window. Dig those LEDs on your bike, nice photo.

I'll definitely be making a thread for my garagevanshop build.

@route - that pulley cover looks great!

@sext9 - that's pretty awesome!  Is it waterproof?


Sirius,  that's the best part.  It's all waterproof.  The GPS is a zumo 660 made for motorcycles.  The idiot light came from an S1 Lighting.  I fabbed the housing from carbon fiber and put a fine textured rubberized coating over it to give a abs plastic look.

@Sext9 Now you all you need is one of those sexy RPM/shift light LED set ups curving over the top of your idiot lights.

Sandblasted them and then powder coated them.

Got her out of the shop today. Dropped it off 2 weeks ago and wasn't able to pick it up until today. Felt so good to ride it again.
Also my ego was boosted when the dealer said I had the cleanest Buell they've ever seen.

Yesterday I changed the primary oil and flushed the brakes with fresh fluid. Polished my plastics with the Novus kit that I just ordered. Looks and runs great!

I beat the crap out of both of mine today, ran them on a dyno to see what they'd make.

Don't know for sure where the xb started at, but it's at 84 hp and 63 ft/lbs of torque, the 1125 is 139 & 89 ft/lbs.

I installed ANOTHER Speedo sensor and was shocked that HD had sold the rear pads they had in stock last week. Who in my area has a tuber?! Thinking about salvaging a the pads from a spare caliper I have but they got soaked in brake fluid and may just fall apart.

And the trike conversion is almost complete!

And yes... Im totally kidding. Rotor bolts are soooo stuck I was gonna mount my extra wheel... But no shops open today to swap my tire!

If I can't ride maybe I should just mount it up with the shite tire for a smoke show... Sigh.

Today I painted the underside of my chopped rear fender black, changed my primary oil, cleaned up my headers (wrapped my jacket around the bike while it was hot and melted the inside of it to the header, oops) and 3M carbon wrapped several pieces.  I must say I am very impressed with the 3M vinyl wrap.  There is a thread going on about how aqua tech is a much better alternative and I would strongly disagree. Any who here are a few pics to ponder.
