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.

Yamaha R1 vs Buell XB12R
Not Racing, just a spirited ride, Started with a quick tire warmup on the
off ramps then off to the mountains. Yamaha R1 & Buell XB12R
Buell XB12 SuperTT follows BMW and R6
The camera is mounted on the speedo of the Buell. That's why it is a bit
shaky. The video was made on the racetrack of Lédenon (France).
Die Kamera wurde mit einem Saugnapf auf dem Tacho der Buell montiert, darum
wackelt es teilweise recht stark. Die Aufnahmen wurden auf der Rennstrecke
von Lédenon (Südfrankreich) gemacht.

Buell XB12R Firebolt - Twisty Road Fun
Riding the Buell XB12R Firebolt in some very challenging conditions. A lot
tighter then it looks!! Luckily the Harley powered Buell had got plenty of
power to pull the Iron Horse through the corners.
Great shame that they stopped building them as they are amazing fun to
Buell XB12R Firebolt - First Blast in a Long While!!! - Gopro Hero 3 Black
Put a brand new set of tyres, Conti-Sports Attack II, on the Buell this
morning and had to get it out for a play. Once I take it to some twisty
roads it will be a blast and the new tyres make a huge difference over the
rubbish that was on it when I brought the bike.
Been over a year since I've done any real riding on it.
Still Believe that the Buell Firebolt XB12R is the greatest sounding
motorcycle ever built.

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
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!

Great sound quality from this "Twin Can" D&D Exhaust setup. Craftsmanship is 9/10.
Performance gains(with tune) is 9/10. Deep, loud, orgasmic sound is 10/10!
I love how the engine shakes the camera; my GoPro definitly feels every
cylinder combustion! lol
