    Believe me this is a huge QOL upgrade. And the fact that when it's put back together you can't even tell its been modified is even better! Because of the tinted plastic you can't see any...

    yeah i got an 08 xb12r and it really just corners well. And it switches directions REALLY fast too, like if you have a hard left followed by an immediate hard right, just throw your weight each way...

    Highest speed achieved on an XB?

    Just curious to see what everyone else says. My xb12r stock hit 135 and had a little left in it. Previous owner said he did 145 but it was done after that. I know this topic gets beat to death but I...

    Maybe not crazy fast, but theres never been a moment on my xb where i felt slow, either. Xb12 has such a raw and visceral nature about the power delivery that is too addicting.

    See i've been browsing forums for a long time and I always heard the vrod boys saying buells are slower. I just cant fathom how they would be that much faster than a 1200 xb.

    true, but you cant do a 1/8 mile drag on a busy interstate. Besides, I was trying to equate my bike to car hp. I've heard people say you need 600hp to beat a 600cc inline 4, and 1000hp to beat a...

    So, who'd you beat with your xb?

    Racing a car or a bike? I ran a guy on a new 2019 zx6r on the interstate outside st louis. 60-110 we were dead even, over 115 he started to pull away. I ran my buddy last night in a 410whp hopped up...

    Yes i am, thanks for your help everyone. I also did the voltmeter mod today, took 4 hours but it looks like a factory option inside the bezel! I love my buell!

    I did immediately after installing. Battery at 12.7V after sitting for 48 hrs. Battery went to 14.3V on cold idle, and with both headlights on after it warmed up, still 14.3v. Stayed 14.3v after i...

    Thanks. You reccommend installing LED backlights while i am in there? I read somewhere someone got light "hotspots" from doing that. The light didnt diffuse well. Sound about right?

    fortunately for me, I have never had a dead battery issue. I suppose that would be coming down the pike if i kept delaying this repair long enough, however

    So are there any other common symptoms associated with a failing VR aside from blowing low beams? Because my symptoms have been pretty tame so far

    I have never seen/heard of this before, are you sure of this? automotive batteries tend to be 12.6V at rest, I've never heard of 13.2 unless it is a buell-specific figure
