    New bike

    Hi i just bought a new for me XB9S today and i don't know what to make of
    it, bike has not been started since 2018 and it looks a little bit strange.
    Engine is supposed to be a 1050cc tuned in the USA with stiffer or dual valve springs and a ported top's with "race" valve lifters?
    It also have a 240 rear tyre with a Hellbender swingarm?

    I don't know what i gotten myself into.

    The pics didn't come through, but I'd love to see it!

    Sounds like the OP bought it that way or they'd know what they were talking about. A 1050 kit is pretty straight forward, but I can't imagine why you'd change valve springs using stock cams? Unless that's what they meant by "race lifters" LOL. You might have a fun ride on your hands!

    That swingarm though... This bike doesn't happen to be red does it?

    That's so nice. Now, to complete your full hellish look and attitude....add a set of our HellFire "Neighbor-Hater" exhaust dump tubes with space-age NASA-sourced ceramic Kevlar copper mesh insulating wrap. Available in our Fall/2021 online catalog. Use promo code "BurnedExhaustValves" to receive Buell board member discount.

    Did you get those body parts from a guy in Arizona (aka azmidget)?

    I'm not into the "skulls" look, but the clutch cover and primary inspection cover are interesting? Are those skulls molded into the actual parts?
