Me on my 2004 Buell XB12R for the first time at the drags... Well, first time on a bike at the drags in general! Overall, very happy with my results; I was expecting a 12.20 best. The dragway is 90ft above sea level, and it was about 90+ degrees. Gonna put down some good times this fall! PS, the R6 rider was on his first 2 races at the track, so I'm sure the bike's good for better times... Though maybe not better than mine :-)
Made 3 passes:
12.18 @ 111mph
12.01 @ 113mph
11.87 @ 114mph
The bike's basically stock, with the exception of a K&N air filter, Jardine Exhaust, XB9R headers, and an ECMSpy tune I did myself. 635 lbs with me on it (I weigh 195 with gear).
PS: Sorry about the blurry 2nd run, my girlfriend wasn't very used to my camera. Still better than nothing!

Buell XB9R vs. Triumph Daytona T595
Beanbag on his Buell XB9R Firebolt, being chased (not in a race), by
Turkish on his Triumph Daytona T595. The sound on the Buell is
amazing......TURN UP YOUR SPEAKERS!!! hehe!
OK....side note for some people as they don't get the "NOT A RACE"
My mate wasn't exactly racing me. It was just him following me. No race.
Read that? No race. :)
Wow! I still can't believe how many emails I'm getting for this! The main
questions are with regards to what upgrades I'd made to the bike.
They are as follows:
- Buell XB9R Firebolt
- Full XB Race kit (stage 2) including:
- XB Race Aluminium Exhaust (twin
- XB Race ECU (Extra BHP and torque)
- Carbon fibre air-cone
- K&N free-flow air filter
That's all. Thanks for the continued comments!
Buell XB12R Firebolt (Race system, Stage 1 tuned)
**Please vote** My bike is fitted with a Full Micron Serpent titanium Exhaust system, has had a full stage 1
tune to accompany the system (so she runs perfectly) Carbon heel plates,
gold anodised foot pegs, and a black double bubble screen.
With very sticky tyres, she is fun to ride ;-)
Grabbed Front Brake in Turn - Buell Lowside Motorcycle Crash
Buell crashes on a section of Mulholland known as "the Snake" The rider
had knee and ankle road rash. With assistance was able to ride the bike
home. The Sheriff who arrived almost immediately witnessed the accident.
Here is another video of the same crash from a different angle -
Buell Jardine vs. Hawk Exhaust
UPDATE EDIT: I am amazed at how many views this has gotten. I am also
surprised at the feedback, it seems viewers opinions are split very evenly
between the two. I personally prefer the Hawk Exhaust, but I'm glad many others were able to
use this video to pick their preferred sound.
EDIT: This video now has more views than all Buell XB models ever made
(68,897)! I think some of you guys are double watching, lol. Thanks for the
views everyone, please thumbs up if you like it!
This is a comparison of the Aluminum Jardine RT-1 slip-on Exhaust vs. the Hawk Exhaust by Randy Hawkins. My bike is an 07 Buell
XB9SX Lightning. The bike was tuned using ECMSpy and Megalog Viewer for the
Jardine to get rid of decel popping.
