Hi i just bought my first Buell, its a 1125r signature 25th year special edition, both tyres need replacing, what would be the best tyres to fit, also if i require any parts in the future where is the best place to get them.This bike is quite different to what i have had in the past, CX500, 900 DIVERSION, HONDA SUPER BLACKBIRD, APRILIA 1000 RSV, PAN EUROPEAN(FOR 2 DAYS), FJR1300, as you can see a bit of variation, is the 1125r a reliable bike ?

:rotfl:
its a buell
the 2008 models have a parasitic battery drain so its best to switch them off with the kill switch
also keep on a battery tender when not in use
also they can suffer from clutch weep around 8k miles easy fix with an oberon slave cylinder
as for tyres I'm on my second set of Dunlop sport smart

Thanks for the reply, i will keep an eye out on the weeping excuse the pun lol, looking at your photos you got a lot of exhaust for the Buell, i take it you make them yourself, if so how much would it cost for a stainless steel exhaust from the manifold on wards, also what engine oil do you use or would recommend

.......and you forgot to mention they are beautifully made. Your can makes the Termis on my Ducati (which cost 4 times more) look like a schoolboy project lOl

As for oil, I use Motul Factory Line 15/50, because I have a big drum for the Ducati. Follow oil check procedure to the letter, or you'll get a false reading. The oil quantity given in the 08 owners handbook is incorrect, I forget the quantity that's now recommended.
