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

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!

Better Buell XB12S Sound Test
Finally got the Buell out of the garage on a somewhat decent afternoon. It
probably would look better if the sun was shining, but haven't had too much
of that here lately. The video/sound quality should also be better in this
The last of the Buells
2009 saw the closure of Buell, a company characterised by quirky models
like the XB9SX, 1125 Cafe Racer and 1125R. But will we miss them? Or are
they gone for a reason?
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 Firebolt Drag Race (vs. R6)
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!
