08 stock Firebolt dyno - March 11, 2008, 02:39 PM

Well, I was skeptical on Buell, but rather than listening to other opinions, I bought one. Heck it came with a factory 2yr warranty. Its fun to ride, comfortable and not bad for power. Here is the stock dyno from the dealer I got it from. Not far off from my 02 Tl1000r.[IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Brandon/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot.jpg[/IMG][IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Brandon/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-1.jpg[/IMG]

That's when it blows a gasket, reducing oil turbulence.

just curious why did you go from a TL-R to a Buell?

Man, they make some good power.

Good rates on the insurance too. Drop to 2k deduct as I have never made a claim that is not going to be full coverage Think about it, you can not buy anything with $1000 on the bike anyway. Should drop ya into the $350/yr range


Can't choose between the R1 and the 10R so I am keeping both but settled with an 1198S when I came home

Keep it up!!!!!!!
