    XB race parts wanted: 2008 engine parts, full bodywork, race suspension

    Hi guys, I am new to the forum.

    I am looking to build a serious AHRMA Battle of Twins race bike - based off the XB12 (unlimited air-cooled twin - is the only defining rule)
    Currently racing an XR1200, but it's not competitive in BOT, does OK in Sound of Thunder 3.

    Donor bike is a stock street 2005 XB12 (actually my kids street bike) looking for a 2008 (salvage bike, whole engine or even just the crank) also will need suspension, full bodywork, steering dampener, rearsets, etc.

    Due to the lack of responses on race parts - and cost of race conversion parts - I just bought this one! adding some new bodywork and it will be ready for battle!

    In addition to the GSXR1000 front end - I will be using the Goldfren brake pads that were a big part of my Championship winning season in 2012.

    Search "Buell" on 1motoshop.com to see what compounds are available for the standard Buell calipers.

    Front end is off a 2008 GSXR, I have a steering dampener, but need the mount.

    Also looking for a donor engine (pre-2008) for a large displacement build. Current engine is fairly stock config - won't be competitive with the Ducati's on any of the longer tracks.

    I will start a new thread regarding this build.

    Thanks

    I noticed there a a couple Buell bikes that legitimately race (not track day) with the GSXR conversion. Why? Suspension, brakes, or cool racer guy thing to do?

    Idk about on the buell but I have a a gsxr complete front-end on my little SV......that one is just a no brainer, I'd be under the assumption that there are a ton more fork internal tuning capabilities w the suzook front-end, brakes as well and im pretty sure spares are cheaper and more readily available. I haven't done anything to the rc51's suspension. Ok.....my parts appear to be off of a 2006-2007 gsxr 600-750. Ill take pics of the spares I have, if i have the dampener bracket its yours for free just pay shipping. The calipers i have to get some cash for. Ill post pics tmrw
