Buell Motorcycle Air Cleaner Installation - S&S Stealth
Here is how to install an S&S Stealth air cleaner on a Tube-Frame Buell
Motorcycle. The S&S Stealth aftermarket air cleaner kit includes everything
you need to replace the stock air cleaner on a tube frame Buell Motorcycle.
It has head breather vent channels in it, which means you don't have to
buy a separate breather kit. In order to clear the frame rails on my tube
frame Buell motorcycle, I added 2 washers on the breather bolts and used 2
gaskets between the carb and the S&S Stealth air cleaner backplate. It
looks great and works really well. You can buy a fancy cover for it, or
use a stock round air cleaner cover from a Harley-Davidson Big Twin
motorcycle. The S&S part number is 170-0093 and it is the one for 1991 and
up Harley Davidson Sportsters.

Superbike Buell 1125R Commercial
The Buell 1125R is a super bike manufactured by Buell Motorcycle Company in
the United States. It was introduced in July 2007 for the 2008 model year.
It is powered by a 1125 cc Helicon V-twin engine produced by Rotax (or
BRP-Rotax) of Austria. This liquid-cooled engine has a V angle of 72
degrees and produces a reported 146 hp (109 kW), with a maximum rpm limit
The 72 degree included angle in this engine is a change from previous
V-twins from this manufacturer which are 90° (Ducati, Suzuki, Aprilia) or
60° (Aprilia, Can-Am), or 45° (Harley-Davidson Evolution) engines. Voxan
is also using 72° V-twins.
The MSRP of Buell 1125R is US$11,995.00 as of year 2008.
The 1125r includes a number of unique design attributes. The patented frame
design houses the bikes' fuel. The single, 8 piston front brake features a
large, inverted rotor that is directly attached to the bike's front rim.
This feature allows Buell to design a lighter, more responsive front end
than traditional designs. The bike also utilizes an Exhaust under the engine for greater volume. The
frame, front end and Exhaust all
contribute to Buell's main design theme of mass centralization. Another
feature unique to Buell sportbikes is the use of a drive belt instead of a
chain. The belt never requires lubrication or adjustment and is cleaner and
quieter than a chain.
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!
