    What am I looking at? The throttle?

    It looks like a vacuum line that was abraded away due to being under tension and vibration - can you zoom out a smidge?

    The pipe is the one that Buell used for the catalytic muffler, which we in the US did not get. It's the exhaust pipe that will not work with the Uylsees comfort kit/right-hand air duct.

    I guess by the front exhaust pipe you are not in the USA.

    I would start troubleshooting by first looking at your air filter. Is it clean? Next look at your spark plugs and spark plug wires. Then...
  4. Update Time!

    OK, so to answer my own questions, here's what I've discovered:

    This handlebar with these 2" risers that are clamped by the stock bar clamp are about as high/wide as you can go with mostly stock...

    I don't like to bash anyone's life decisions, but that stuff and 2A are enough to keep me from living in CA.
    Shame as CA was beautiful the couple times I've visited.

    Huh, I never noticed when I lived there, and I rode bikes in H-Town too. I lived in the south suburb parts, maybe that was the difference. At the least Houston doesn't have potholes on the freeways....

    I'm 5'10" as well. Unfortunately for me Buell did not make a 2009 XB12S. I had an 04 XB12S, the handling was great and I prefer the slightly more compact look compared to the SS. I did not want an...

    Come to Nebraska, they said!
    The weather's not so bad, they said!

    But yeah, I might need to get a Uly cable. I'll try looking under the fly screen after this hangover subsides...:black_eyed:
  9. Handlebar risers and wider bars - how much slack is in the stock cabling?

    So I got some 2" risers and some motocross-style fatbar handlebars.

    At the moment I'm working on the clutch lever and I'm not sure how much slack is available. I managed to get an extra 1" on the...

    So it looks like for my needs the -ST or -GT would fit the bill. For anyone who has the Supertrapp muffler, how many discs are y'all running? It...

    The Bob, is the SG a glasspack muffler or is it just using internal baffles?

    My main concern is if it needs repacking, I can see no way to do so.

    I was thinking of either the cone style for $395, or the squared-off style for $225.
    The cheaper Supertrapp-style muffler isn't bad at $250.
    I was leery of Supertrapp as back in the 80s/90s they...

    How are the Buelltooth exhausts?

    I searched the forum and I didn't find a whole lot. Couple threads, one said he had one and another said they were thinking about it.

    Is their exhaust quite loud? I don't like how quiet the stock...

    Wow, this blew up! :black_eyed: Heh, I meant to ask kind of off-handedly, but I'm surprised at how much parts support is still available for XBs.

    Cooter, I'll probably hit you up when I'm ready -...
  15. Does the hidden rear brake caliper kit still exist?

    I used to own a XB12S about 9-10 years ago, back then there was a kit to mount a single-piston Brembo caliper behind the swingarm.
    Does it still exist, or can you fabricobble your own?

    I didn't see the price listed. It's a sharp bike for sure.

    The pictures are sideways because the forum rotates portrait mode pictures. You would have to manually crop them into landscape mode to...

    Yeah, I figure longer cables are a necessity. No to the Uly bars, they're taller, but the pullback angle is a more severe, 6.5" pullback for the XB, 9" for the Uly.

    I had fatbars on another bike...

    So does anyone have recommendations for bar risers and handlebars?

    I hate the pullback on the stock bars, and I really wish they were taller. Power Barn has the LSL risers and LSL Fat Bars, but...

    So I found an XB12Ss, and here she is
