Nice!

If I had the room I'd have a Uly just like yours.

And welcome!

1st suggestion is to familiarise yourself with Maz (see viewtopic.php?f=8&t=18898) and book yourself a trip up to Dukinfield for an honest, no nonsense opinion.
From what I see on the photo, some first recommendations will be to remove the fork leg reflectors and to get your self a gearbox output shaft bleed nipple and a free spirits sprung belt tensioner.

Well it looks like I may have a long trip on my hands to see maz in the winter.......
Ive had the wheel and head set bearings check and they are ok just one more thing to try and thats the tyres.
Still getting a high speed weave at 90,95 and its not nice........
I have also ordered a free spirit belt tenser as I seem to have a clunk over bumps when just of the throttle.

When I have my zx9r I put a ZX10 throttle tube on it and it acted as a quick action throttle that I liked does anyone know of a similar mod for the buell ?

I think the R6 throttle tube works?
