Helloooooo

Postby painauchoc » Wed Jul 13, 2022 10:36 am

Hello! recently acquired an 08 XB12SCG which has spent more time in garage than on road so far. A suprising number of the frame fixings were loose including 3 of the bolts holding the seat frame! :shock: rear sprocket / belt shot, rear rocker area oil leak, clutch cable broken fixing at primary cover, horn missing! not idling smoothly - ecu having a mini break in the Netherlands for firmware upgrade - I'll start from there. Already has open airbox mod / Remus exhaust fitted.

Only been riding for 4 years but lost 2 years to covid... Sold my car and spent the money on another bike! :D

I'm in Plymouth - interested to know if anyone else is nearby / events

Mitch who posts here quite regularly lives in Plymouth but hasn't been using his Buells much recently. Maybe you can encourage him to change that situation.
