1998 Buell S1W
1998 Buell S1W, purchased new when I was on vacation in Florida ... went
into the Harley shop to buy a T shirt and ended up buying a T shirt and the
S1W (love at first sight!!!). It has been upgraded with a few Buell
accessories over the years and an absolute "blast" to drive.

2006 Buell Blast - Modified Stock Exhaust
I drilled the stock Exhaust on my 2006
Buell Blast using a 1 5/8" Hole Saw per the insructions from Buell Forums.
I then painted the entire muffler with flat black 2000 degree header paint.
I have not seen a video of the modified stock Exhaust get posted to YouTube yet; so, here it
is! The bike now sounds about twice as loud as it did before and really
screams down the highway! I love the new sound and it reportedly gives you
an additonal 1 HP...for the Blast, this is nothing to scoff at! A special
thanks goes to EZBlast for answering all of my questions! Check out
www.BuellForums.com for all of your Blast needs!
DIY and Keep Thumping: Buell Blast Service
Although Buell is no more the resources to keep your obsolete American
Thumper are available on forums devoted to this make. BadWeb is your first
stop to edify yourself on how to service your P3. Almost every service on
the Blast can be done in your own garage. There is no need to throw down
hundred dollar bills at the HD shop...they never like these bikes anyway.
HD will still provide needed gaskets and other maintenance parts but it's
not always an easy road. Best way to go is get a parts manual and service
manual and know the numbers and Google search them through various online
Thank you to Roanoke Valley HD Buell for having the needed gaskets on hand.
2001 Buell Blast w/ Vance & Hines Exhaust
My '01 Blast. This thing really rips! the sound quality when it is being
reved does the bike no justice...Oh yeah...and it's louder than my
brother's Fatboy with Screamin' Eagle pipes!
