    So after getting frustrated I realized the new bar-end mirrors I put on are binding up against the throttle grip. Took one off and the throttle isn't getting stuck as before. So yeah. Now what? Do I...

    Thanks Cooter. I'll get battery checked this week, and run the spark plug cleaning procedure. I thought I was doing the right thing by starting it up a couple of times. Go figure.

    Had it on a trickle charger and fully charged. But I can't vouch for its veracity. I'll have to take it to a shop then.

    So, I put her away for the winter in the garage. Had some gas in it and I added Sea Foam. Kept it on a trickle charger from time to time and started it up every couple of weeks.

    But, last month it...

    Tail Chop

    I did my own tail chop. Admittedly encountered a lot of small challenges, but in the end it turned out great. If I were to do it again, I would NOT recommend mounting the turn signals in the tail...

    Warped Front Brake Rotor

    My front brake rotor is slightly warped (2009 xb12ss). A mechanic confirmed it a while back during an evaluation. It's only noticeable when braking - of course. Finally decided it's time to get it...

    Didn't want to start a new thread, so here is an update.

    Checked throttle cable, and it appears to be adjusted properly. Granted, I've never adjusted it before.

    Question. After parking in the...

    Update:
    after a stupid merry-go-round of choosing race stands to get the bike up, I finally removed tires, and Performance Cycle of Colorado put Michelin Road 5 and new bearings on all around.

    Fellas, can't thank you enough for slow walking me through this.

    So, another issue - I assume is common - the bolts holding on the rear fender and front fender have some sort of loctite on them. I...

    Just to confirm before I buy the bearings. This is a two bearing wheel. Correct?

    Thanks for the info. Lunaticfringe had the same suggestion to use a dorman unit. I'll look further into that.

    Not ready to pull the trigger on an aftermarket exhaust yet (got some minor maintenance and such to pay for first), but my IEV actuator stopped working. Found a used actuator off a 2007 - looks like...

    I have an 2009 xb12Ss. Is there a way to know which rear wheel bearings I need before pulling the wheel? I understand most have a 2 bearing set vs the newer have a 3 bearing set. And is there a...

    Thanks for the information. Going to check in with a local mechanic about replacing wheel bearings.

    And thank you for the clarity between the primary drive chain and the final belt drive.
  19. Belt rub = low tone squeaky sound? Primary Drive belt rubbing

    Sorry for the lame description of the sound. Noticed an odd sound that I first attributed to my front brake rotor as a mechanic I first took it to suggested the rotor is slightly warped, but not in...

    Couple thoughts. I went with the xb12Ss because of the extra wheel base length (54" vs 52" for the xb12S). I'm 6'1" and can flat foot the bike.

    There is a slight difference in seat height between...

    So, I warmed the bike up, and then took this video to show the throttle response. Not experiencing any problems at all, save the initial throttle response lag. Is this normal?

    2009 Buell xb12ss. I did the dual headlight wiring trick so that both headlights are on with high beams. Works great. But, just noticed that the LEFT turn signal is not working properly. The LEFT...
