    LOL it's funny because it's one of the few machines that has a dry sump oiling system, a vast improvement over traditional cheap wet sump systems. My buddy had an '06 CBR1000RR which seized up on...

    Does the rotor for the stator have the oil cooling mod done to it? My bike is still rocking the Harley harness fix.

    I've done some serious mileage on my XB12Ss, which is very comfortable IMHO, but I understand it's a bit stretched out compared to the original XB12S. I've not changed the stock peg locations either...

    Haha, certainly not a concours restoration!

    I'm going to remove the cable and see what can be done to repair it... the bend with threads on the end is probably the main concern with mine (the tube...

    You make fun of my fab skills (cuz they genuinely are dubious), but I may be able to fab a new throttle cable or reuse the usable portion of the busted one and fab just broken 90 degree bend. Might...

    I called Tucson H-D today, who has been fairly amicable in the past because a couple of the parts guys there are Buell riders. Unfortunately, those throttle cables are now obsolete - no longer in...

    Barrett, how does one go about procuring one of the 2008-2010 cable sets? Does it require going on-site into a Harley-Davidson dealership? I do not see anything online via the Surdyke, St. Paul's...

    I made a new thread for the cables because the “other” thread is mainly regarding rocker box gaskets.

    Yep, agreed on the difference between the XB and the Rotax. I have the XB12Ss and find it's a bit more relaxed for touring - I do love them both, though. The suspension on the CR seems a bit more...

    You guys crack me up. I didn't realize I was offered a new-in-bag cable? The throttle cable (the upper one) is workable - it can still be used... not ideal, but no a showstopper yet.

    Either way, I was more curious if I...

    So rotating the engine to access the rocker boxes which were leaking, I noticed that my throttle cables are damaged. The main throttle cable is fine although the metal bends close to the throttlebody...

    You really don't like them? I've been riding my '09 CR daily since my XB12 is still undergoing surgery. It's reminiscent of a Honda Superhawk, but with a lot more power and it handles great. I...

    Personal experience suffices, for sure! It sounds like I've got exactly the same problem - I feel that I will simply need to rebuild that section of harness, eventually.
