    2008 XB12R 20K miles in Ohio $3,500

    I'm listing this bike for a friend.

    It is a 2008 with 20,500 miles. My friend bought it in late May. He purchased it from the original owner. After purchasing it he's ridden it twice and decided that a Firebolt isn't the most comfortable thing to ride...

    The good:
    It's is basically a one owner bike.
    Always kept inside and well cared for.
    Almost new tires.
    I cannot see evidence of it ever being dropped.
    Starts, runs and drives well. I took it for a couple mile loop as part of the pre purchase inspection. I don't think it was quite as snappy off the line as my Lightning, but speed sure built a lot faster.

    The "bad":
    The original owner put an aftermarket muffler on it & it fell off, so he has been riding it with straight pipes.
    There are a couple powder coat chips on the rims.
    The check engine light is on but everything functions fine. I tried to hook up with my Buelltooth but the plug is different.

    The plug shouldnt be different. Its up front, not under the seat like a Lightning.

    I found the plug under the front but the only one I could find is definitely a different shape than the one for my 05 XB12S. If I know for sure that it is the same I can go and dig around until I find the right one.

    Alternatively, when you find that 4-pin plug you can ground the data wire (Jump terminal #1 and #2) when the CEL starts blinking you can let go and count the flashes.
    Heres the most common ones but if its missing a muffler I bet I can guess which one it is

    11 Throttle position sensor
    13 Oxygen sensor
    14 Engine temperature sensor
    15 Intake air temperature sensor
    16 Battery voltage
    21 inter active muffler control
    23 Front fuel injector
    24 Front ignition coil
    25 Rear ignition coil
    26,27 clutch and neutral switch
    32 Rear fuel injector
    33 Fuel pump
    34 iac
    35 Tachometer
    36 fan voltage
    37,43 speed sensor
    44 Bank angle sensor
    45 side stand sensor
    46 start relay
    47 aux power outlets
    52, 53, 54, 55 ECM failure
    56 Cam sync failure

    Sir: The plug you "found" is either the R model accessory or aux Euro lamp plug. All XB ECM access diagnostic plugs look like the below. Some black colored on late 2009-2010 models. All the rest gray as pictured. Pic is R model plug behind fairing.
