    Figure I should just go ahead and register and not be a lurker any more.
    Names Ali from good old Nebraska and ride an 03 XB12R and I love this bike. I've been on plenty of 600s and even 1000s but still would have my Buell.

    For mods it has
    K&N Filter
    Swiss Cheesed Airbox
    Hawk Exhaust w/ tuned ECU
    1" lowered rider pegs
    rear caliper relocated inside swing arm with ducati brembo caliper

    Anyways i'll stop talking...Here are some pictures of the bike before I tore it down for the winter.





    And the tear down...


    Here is the rubber from my burnout that decided to wrap around my wheel and caliper










    Just need to take the tires off but the wheels will get repowdercoated with new bearings


    My helper

    durp


    Got a set of slicks thanks to a friend






    Got the tail section off

    Then took the swingarm spring off and the fan to get to the rear exhaust bolts

    Drop the motor a tiny bit and got the header off

    Nice bike! I like the murdered out look! Are you planning to ceramic coat the headers?

    Welcome to the forum! As you probably know from lurking, there's lots of great people on here and some great sponsors (see right margin...I'm one of 'em :D )

    Let me know if you want to fill those empty axles with some axle sliders or update that front pulley cover. Have a look at my site if interested. Shipping is free and forum members get a discount when using the "buellxb" discount code at checkout.

    Good luck putting the bike all back together!
