    1125cr tips and opinions

    Good morning all,
    I'm still a bit new here and thought I'd pose a question. There is an '09 1125CR that just popped up rather local to me for what I believe is a decent price ($3k) and I was just wanting to get a feel for them. I've read specs and wanted to try the other side of the Buell coin with the liquid cooled 1125cc (I have an '04 XB12S now).

    Anything that I should be looking for? I've read about the stator issues, but wasn't sure if there was anything else with this model that may creep up. Bike has just over 13k mileage on it.

    I haven't made contact yet, just stalking at this point. Photos look nice and the bike looks clean.

    Thanks.

    The Rotax motor is the best thing Buell ever did. You get a huge amount of bang for your buck with these.

    I paid $3200 for my 08 1125r in February and put around 1500 miles on her so far. I swapped out the regulator and that solved all my minor electrical issue. She hasn't given me any problems and is always a joy to ride.

    For the price of a trip to Mouseworld you get an amazing machine. You do have to enjoy doing your own wrenching. I wouldn't trust mine to anyone else, even a so-called Buell friendly Harley dealer.

    She definitely has personality. I describe her to car guys as the Dodge Viper of motorcycles -- rough around the edges but a blast to drive.

    Thanks Bat! I've been digging up all kind of research the past few days trying to be as informed as possible. They sure look like a load of fun.

    Thank you for your help!

    I wouldn't worry about issues, including electrical, until you have them.

    I'd get it, but I'm a little biased..

    It is a completely different bike than an XB.

    I'm getting ducks lined out now, I think I'm going to take a run at it!
