    I'm in the East Valley in Chandler and have a Bluetooth set up you can use. I've done it a few times, but just far enough apart that I have to re-read the instructions every time. But it is really...

    I was going to look at that bike myself (I'm in Chandler). But another bike trade was in the works (trade my Suzuki DR650 for a Triumph Bonnie). The dude made a deal with me and flaked last night. ...

    Or you can do like the previous owner of my XB did. Low side on both sides and then buy the pucks to cover the scratches.

    I'm in Phoenix and did just the larger RSS only. It made a noticeable change to the heat. It's not a night and day difference, but it is noticeable cooler and worth the expense. I have not added a...

    I'm 6'3" and 300# after a diet. I ride a 2004 XB-12S and am comfortable on it, particularly around town. I also ride a Suzuki Bandit 1200S and a Suzuki DR650. The Bandit has a similar riding...

    I heard it may cross into the upper 40's in the out laying areas. But it's a dry cold.

    I just wish I could ride my bike to work. Between picking up kids and running work errands, I can't seem...

    I could see myself getting one of these. But it'll be a few years so I can snatch up a deal on a used one, hopefully with a 'free' $1200 exhaust on it.

    Now that you own it, change all the fluids, including the brake fluid. No telling how long it has been in there and it will give you an opportunity to look over the bike as you are working on it. ...

    Mine looks exactly like that and hasn't moved in years. I found a very small fray in my old belt and replaced it although I probably could have kept on using my old one until it broke. But I...

    My Ebay set, which came on my bike tried to kill me by causing my front to lock up in traffic. That is when I researched it and found out about the issue. I got a stock lever off of Ebay.

    You just have to check the clearance if you get a set. It is literally a 1/16"-1/32" off and can easily be ground down. I did so after my lever locked up my front caliper. Just check to see if it...

    I love my Buell XB-12S for city riding and am also in Phoenix. Yes, heat is an issue, but that is the game here in the desert. It is a great bike for the riding around town. I use synthetic oil to...

    Check out this 'custom' seat company. They add a comfort pad to an existing seat. They might be able to add height or at least not cut down the insert.

    For not much more, you can get a nicer bike. It seems cheap at $2500, but when you consider you can get a nice one for $3500, the $1000 savings isn't much. The Micron is nice, but the bike does...

    Something is only worth what somebody else will pay. Sadly, there are so many cheap XBs out there, it is hard to get top dollar for even a nice, rare example. I don't know about where you are at,...

    My bike made a rattle and I couldn't figure it out for a bit. I could barely hear it at idle and mainly heard it when higher up in the RPMs. I finally figure out it was my front headlight bracket...

    I'd go with the 1125CR, but mainly because I never had one and am more curious about it. I'd be worried about how little miles it had compared to the high miles on the XB. But if the 1125CR were...

    An electric bike would be great if you had a fixed commute to an office. When Victory announced they were closing, I was tempted to get one of their electric bikes for the commute to my office. But...

    I rode the Victory electric bike a year or so ago and loved it. Once the cost comes down a bit or the range goes way up, I would seriously consider one. Sadly, here in the Phoenix area, all the...

    Buy a used Vanson and have Buell patches sewn on. Vanson jackets are super durable and you can find deals on the used market. The race grade leather is second to none. I just wish they offered...

    I use Grab-On foam grips. They are a sleeve that slides on over your existing grips. I used hair spray to lube the sleeve when putting it on. The hair spray then adds some hold once it dries. I...

    Not that is matters now. But as mentioned above, $2500 is way too much for a non-running parts bike. I regularly see running Buells for $2500-3000 asking price. In fact, I bought my 2004 12S for...

    The Buell is pretty wide at the Swing arm. My Pitbull rear stand is adjusted all the way out to fit my buell. It won't fit any of my other bikes (Suzuki DR650 & 1200S Bandit) when adjusted to the...
