Hi All,

Just bought a 2008 model Buell 1125R with 7000 miles on the clock.

It's my first Buell, looking forward to spring as I've not ridden it yet!

Got a few other large capacity V twins, all Italian (but no Ducatis!!)

Been looking for owners manuals, workshop manuals etc, any thoughts?

Bike is standard apart from a Remus exhaust and 3/4 length fairing side panels.

Cheers

R

Nice little Crimbo prezzy. If you need advice they're very good on here after you've waded through the grief and Pish taking, but you bought a Buell so you must have a sense of humour :!:

Welcome ;)

Watch out for that Kiwi he's a bit untamed :rotfl: :rotfl:

Defo got a sense of humour, most of my other bikes are Italian lOl , apart from the 2 BMWs !!!!!

Been playing with it, generally checking it over. Had to adjust the exhaust side fairing brackets to give a little more air between the fairing and the header pipes. Also fitted insulation and silver foil inside the fairing to stop it getting so bloody hot!

Managed to find a download of the electric and full strip manuals but still no owners manual download. The ones on this site don't work for me.

I could do with knowing how the clock functions work. Managed to get into the set up screen and change the clock time!! My rev needle lights up at 5000 rpm, I assume this is programmable like my Aprilia RSVR???

Cheers all, have a great New Years eve.

The tacho needle stops lighting up at 5k rpm, when the engine is up to temp.
