    Cool 2009 Buell Lightning XB9SX CityX for $2500 in SF

    SOLD in SF

    I bought this XB as the third owner in 2012 and put 24,000 excellent miles. I did all of the modifications and maintenance. It runs great and can be ridden anywhere, but will need the included subframe installed and some elbow grease to deal with corrosion and paint. Test ride with "M" license and cash in hand. No trades.

    The XB is one of the best analog, internal combustion engine sportbikes. You want the 2008+ for the smoother transmission, upgraded ECM, new oil pump gear, and reworked swingarm which makes it much easier to remove the rear wheel.

    I am interested in it for parts not as a complete bike, engine, ecm, harness....... so if this turns into a part out you might get more money then trying to sell as is
