....and the other 'great' thing about XB's is that whilst the cooling fan is cooking itself blowing red hot air all over the rear shock, it turns said shock into a pogo stick due to cooking that too lOl

The reason they're called 9's is that if you weigh more than 9 stone piss wet through in your riding gear, you really wont appreciate any benefit of the shorter stroke ie. they are girls bikes !
Buells are all about torque.....it's the only good thing about an antiquated 45 degree push rod air cooled V twin :idea:



Thanks for the chuckle :maz:

lol I like the comments about the 9 and weighing 9 stone ) I'm 17 stone and with the Buell race kit on mine I really don't think it's a slow bike at all imho...mine doesn't t get left by my mates gsxr1000k3 until just over a ton, and I like it doesn't shake itself all over the car park on the sidestand and yea I rev it hard but I'll put a 1125 motor in it one day anyway ;)
