    2008 Buell Xb12Ss

    Here's a few pics. Not me in pictures. Paint done by previous owner. I just picked it up as my first Buell two months ago. 72 000 Km.

    Interesting paint. It looks familiar... maybe a forum owner had it at some point.

    Looking good!

    If a previous member did have it, I would be interested to find his posts. See what was going on. Needs so much love. So much. If I ever get it mechanically 100% I'd like to change the colour by way of vinyl wrap. But for now, I'd like it to be mechanically sound.

    I didn't know about vinyl wrap for something like an 'air box cover'... Is this a reasonable thing to do?

    His original was black so depends on what you look. Personally, I would not have done this. It's not a wrap but a hydro dip thing.

    if you look closer at mine it's skulls. Previous owner's taste not mine. I just bought the Buell Decals for it.

    So its been confirmed that the Previous Owner WAS clueless and by big bore kit he just meant that it was a 1200cc bike. But based on the repairs done on it I'm not surprised.

    Regardless, two years after buying it and collecting parts and then almost dyeing in a car accident last year. I decided to have the engine rebuilt finally and everything mechanical brought back to good working order. Lots of part sourcing, custom fitted fatbob headlight, etc. I emptied to bank account to have it done since I promised that if I was able to ride again after my accident that I would if I could allow it.

    Here's a short video of me leaving my driveway 11 months AFTER I rode it last.

    Man its a fun bike. Really is.

    Here you go Cootie Cootie Chicken Booty
    I had some night shots too, i'll post them later. Either way, a lot more useful at night. Lights better than my car with HID.
