    I'll get pictures tonight.

    Yep the pinch bolt is fully loosened, anti-seize lubricant applied to the threads of the axle. I use the manual for everything - best tool in my kit. I try to avoid...

    Got it back from the welder, he did real nice work. Fixed it up and I'm back in business on the front end. Got it back into the garage and started putting all the parts together (took a bunch of...

    Took it to a welder last Wednesday. Had a long conversation with him and included all the information from here including the suggestion to convert it to a stud. He said that's unnecessary, and that...

    Step 1. Find a company that does EDM. Ask them if they have a mobile spark drill. If so, disconnect wiring and...

    Great link, great info.

    So I tried drilling it out some more, and I ended up breaking it. As in breaking the cast iron post where the bolt was buried in. Literally broke a chunk off.

    I...

    Yep that's it - the front tie bar.

    The head broke off pretty deep in the hole and while I was in the process of using the torque wrench. An extractor didn't work (I tried two different ones I've...

    Can I ride without the front motor mount...?

    Soooo... while installing a new clutch cable and torquing down the bolt that goes to the motor mount in the front (which is more like a vibration dampener than a mount, seems like...) the head of the...

    The inner spacer looks like somebody chewed on the end of it, or at least used it to hammer at something (probably the bearing). Here's a photo:

    Alright, time for some updates now that I've got something to report back...

    I adjusted the primary chain per the manual and changed out all the oil. I used Mobil 1 for both after doing a ton of...

  15. First ride on my xb9r... a few issues that worry me...

    My 03 xb9r had her first ride today (at least, first ride under my ownership lol) - a short one in the neighborhood to make sure brakes work, the engine runs, clutch works, etc. It was... slightly...

    I threw in two gallons of hi-test just to make sure I had enough fuel in the tank, the pump seemed to be pushing out plenty of fuel. Put it all together and rode it for a few miles, the fuel pump...
  17. Brake cylinder compatibility (rear brakes...)

    So I've got this 03 XB9R that I'm hammering away at, and it looks like the rear brake is frozen. At least, the foot pedal is, because the rear wheel turns freely so clearly the brake isn't applied. ...

    One last video from a few minutes ago when I cranked it up for my buddy to listen to. Seemed to sound a little better? I honestly just don't know - I'll let the professional ears decide:

    I have no idea how long the bike sat, to be honest. Previous owner claimed only a week or two but could've been much longer - the mechanic where it was sitting at said "about a month, I think." ...

    Here's that link to the video with the fuel pump activating on key turn:

    This was taken a couple of days ago, prior to attempting ignition.

    The IAT plug is in, yeah. I expect it to run rough with no airbox and an open pipe, but I feel like it should stay on at idle, IMO.

    During the process of rotating the motor I removed and...
  23. Bringing an XB9R back to life... and having trouble starting it...

    Evening, all!

    So I've gotten my hands on an 03 XB9R that had a blown front spark plug. I like trying to fix things (did okay with a Honda and a Ducati), and I've always wanted a Buell, so it...
