I am about to by my first Buell from a shop here in South Africa. They have sent me photo's, as the shop is out of town. The bike for sale is in excellent condition, with 7,500 Km's on the clock, however there is one question regarding the header pipe color that concerns me. The color of the headers are black yet other photo's of xb9's are straw colored. Is this normal or is it from being ridden hard or running lean.I would be grateful if someone can advise me on this.

Can you post the photo??

Could the header be aftermarket or perhaps they jet coated them black? Is the color consistent or is it black in spots only?

Dumb question, but they're not wrapped are they?[confused]

Hi 50dro
As you can see from the photo the pipes are stock and not wrapped. Maybe I am being over cautious.http://www.buellxb.com/buell_images/4711_20090912222812_L.jpg

Those seem to be extremley dark from that picture. I never seen any that dark before. Do you think someone painted them before you owned it and now it is just coming off in spots?
