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!
110 rwhp 88cid Buell S1
Here's my -98 Buell S1 Lightning on a mobile Dyno. A famous finnish drag
racer Tuoppi is pulling a 110 rear wheel horsepower pass. That
combined with over 130 Nm (95 ft.lbs) of torque makes this a hell of a bike
BUELL XB12S SPEEDO READINGS.
Giving the Lightning a bit of throttle on a closed road to which the public
have no access..This was done to see if the re-packed silencer made any
difference to the performance.Keeping under the redline It knocks almost
10mph off the top end but acceleration is about the same...

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!
