    Looking for Info on 2014/2016 EBR 1190RX

    OK I have the BUELL BUG BAD!!!

    I would like to expand my collection to include an RX. The SX doesn't work for me and I wanted some opinions. I don't plan on putting a lot of miles on the RX, it would be an addition to my collection. No plans for track days or no need for squeezing out extra HP.

    Is there a list of things to look for? With such limited production and unique buyers I'm sure its a tight knit community. Is there MANDATORY mods or OBVIOUS things that should be done to the RX? I would LOVE an RS but just one too many zeros at the end of the price tag.

    I recently dealt with EBR in Troy about a charging rotor and clutch actuator for an 1125 and they were GREAT! is there a concern for parts? Yes I'm a bueller and I just asked about parts concerns ;-)

    Thanks

    You may want to direct that question to EBR directly. Seems like your past dealings with them have been GREAT!

    I held off buying an 1190 due to (my perceptions of) parts concerns, but Cooter, Silverrider and some others have not had any issues with parts availbility. I think Cooter mentioned the drive sprocket being hard to find, but he's pretty confident he won't have issues. He's a pretty resourceful guy, so he's probably a great candidate for EBR ownership. Other people struggle to find intake manifold seals for a tuber.

    Well, not to worry, Teabag can make a new and improved drive sprocket on his 3D printer and you'll get 100% better gas milage !

    Why does the SX not work for you? You said you aren't going to track day the RX. Put clipons on the SX. Or maybe you just want the RX to fill out your collection. I can understand that.

    I really like pure sports bikes, my back and knees on the other hand. The Red RX is an excellent looking bike.

    Pdksh--if you have not located an RX give me a pm and I can introduce you to mine. I rarely use it. I raised the bars (speaking of backs and knees) but the bike is otherwise stock. 15,000 miles and all service and valve work done.

    I currently owe 7200 on the bike and will sell for that and the heck with equity.
