    I'm about to buy an 01 buell blast, going to look and test ride tomorrow. Is there anything that I should look for? Any common problems to watch out for that are specific to this bike? Thanks for the help!

    Thanks for the help, I'm gonna take a good look at it and just wanted an idea of common pitfalls of this bike. I know it's a beginner but for the price I don't think it can pass it up

    there are more factory problems to fix - ( more time in the shop till figured out and more money to get up to newer model reliability ) but once done they are pretty good bikes

    bad web recall info
