Buell XB12R Firebolt Drag Race

My Buell XB12R Firebolt at the local Drag Club. *Unfortunately a bit out of focus*. Best time to date down the 1/8th mile is 7.60s. Typically I run 7.70-7.75s all day long with 1.8s 60' times. This run wasn't particually good and from memory it was a 7.9s pass. Launch bike at ~3000rpm. Trap speed typically 90-91mph and my experience to date seems to strongly indicate that the Buell is very sensitive to Air temperature changes. At the end of the day it's a pretty fun and easy bike to drag race. Bike: 2006 Buell XB12r Firebolt, Remus pipes, Race ECU

Turbo Buell XB GoPro tank mount
For more information, check out my build website at www.streetfighterperformance.com A short ride around the block with the GoPro mounted with their suction cup mount. This mount does a much better job than the handlebar mount but the camera still vibrates a good bit. The Boost controller is set to ~15psi in every gear. The bike is running a bit rich at that Boost level which causes the couple of stutters during hard acceleration at 2:35 and 6:10. The slipping clutch is evident in the 4th and 5th gear pull at 6:12. The GoPro picks up an occasional rattle noise when the intake plumbing slightly vibrates against the tank cover (what the GoPro suction cup is attached to). At 8:58 a guy in a white SUV asks what kind of bike it is and at 10:08 and 12:48 I talk to a guy riding a Triumph. He asks if it's a 500, haha! At 10:40 a woman tries to cut me off.....Grrr!
