hi all

iv been riding harleys for a few years now , have a 1990 fxrs 1340 and a 2002 883r sporster bored to 1200cc

love them both but wanted something to play with , jap stuff just dont do it for me so the best thing was a buell

bought a 2005 xb12ss two weeks ago what a laugh it is :twisted:

it was standard when i got it , within 3 days out came the plasma cutter and chopped up the exhaust now thats how it should sound , then out with the grinder and off came the stupid thing stuck out the back

just ordered a k&n and will be looking at other mods , so shall be seeking advise on things as i go

cheers
Lee

Mr Nutter, check the routing of the throttle cables around the headstock on full L/H lock. Remember at all times, Forrest Gump assembled these bikes ;) :lol:

Hi Lee
You do realise modifying the standard exhaust causes the cylinder heads to melt!
