    So here is the blast that we will be using the cases from:


    and the XB frame(swingarm not pictured):


    The blast being stripped down:


    Test fitting the swing arm:


    Thanks to Bossanova for the wheels and squidbuellie for many of the other parts, aaron914 for the primary cover and a backup ecm. I will be putting the new primary cover on today, and then srat tearing the motor down when I get all the parts in.

    I will update the further along I get.

    Since this thread died, here's my progress:


    Custom axle is being turned and will have it road-going by February.

    Engine is EFI and runs fine (been EFI for a couple years now). Front end and electronics are all squared away. Just need to add a couple heim joints, foot controls and rear axle. Already put on a new drive pulley and have a belt fitted, just haven't taken new photo.

    Nope. Kept procrastinating, then the nearest dyno closed shop. I've since moved and am close to some other Buell guys with a dyno and FAST Buells, so I'll be taking it there once it's ready. They're eager and waiting for me to finish, want me to go LSR with them.

    This is their Blast:

    Somewhere close to 80hp, if he hasn't topped it yet.

    and their S2:

    1250 with turbo and nitrous

    They're pushing me to boost it, but I need to get it road-worthy as it sits, then I'll sort out the turbo and head for the salt.
