    I'll put it this way. I picked up a 2008 xb12ss long with 72000km three months ago; my first Buell, but not the first one I've ridden. Has issues. I put in work since I bought it. Still has issues. But I still don't want to sell it. Just a nice event driving one. Pick up a Buelltooth reader; and download ECMDroid for free if you have an android device. This will help you troubleshoot some if issues arise.

    While there are some issues that arise, that's normal for any mechanical device.
    On average though, Buells are very reliable and most of the issues people run into can be easily solved with the help of the people on this forum.
    We seriously have some very smart people here

    I agree with Lusiphur. Buell's are simple and maintenance free, but also 10 years old...
    If you are mechanically inclined, life will be easy
