Current ride: 04 XB9R Firebolt
Location: Hull, East Yorkshire, but get around abit
Good morning one and All,

Thought id join up as i hear wonderful things regarding the site and its members.
I recently picked up an 04 Firebolt XB9R, which i traded for a w reg KWAK VN 800, which i in turn traded a 56plate Apriia Pegaso. Its a complicated story haha!!
Ive only ridden the Buell a handful of times and have to say what a cracking thing!
Its actually a Cat C but the only visible sign is a dent in the exhaust header.

The issues it has which im less pleased about and i understand are common, a side stand down starting fault and the neutral light which is always on when the clutch is pulled in, puzzling but i understand fixable.

Any way im East yorkshire, its white and orange in colour if you see me give us a wave!!!

Another Firebolt owner....yay!

If it hasn't already got one, get a Free Spirits belt tensioner on it to ease grief on the belt and the gearbox output bearing.
