This getting old business is no good people used to take me with them to various places in Glasgow for protection but I think aking Mags for protection sounds like a plan.

Thanks for that I read somewhere the rev limiter is set at 6800 I have no intention of revving my bike that high anyway, I have reset my float height, so hopefully that will sort my problem.

My brain is rather addled these days, but I think you'll find that's the rev limit on the accessory Pro Race kit ignition module. I'm sure someone with more active brain cells than I will be along shortly to confirm. I recently bought a new Dyna 2000 programmable ignition box cheap as chips for one of my bikes. One of those might be a useful alternative to the standard ignition box if that's what's fitted. It has a few settings to tweak, like ignition advance curves and rev limiters, choice of dual or single fire mode etc.....

As others have said, by far the biggest bang for the buck upgrade to any European tube frame bike is full USA gearing but it sounds like your bike likely has that already.

Your muffler will break, if you're lucky it won't drop under your back wheel or dig into the tarmac when it does. If you like it you could run with it and take a chance.


Ah right, now I understand why it's shit. Thanks Steve.
My apologies to everyone for butting my nose in where it didn't belong.

Im 99% sure its US gearing, ive not counted the rotor teeth but it was touching 115 mph on the speedo when just touching the 6000 ( about 19mph per 1000 revs) and the mid range is quite lively.

Your chrome oil filter is a benefit because it's the longer one so holds a little more oil

Or use a K&N one in black :idea: which is also longer and saves the bike looking like it belongs to one of the Black Widows ;)

Thanks for all the input by the way, I am enjoying the bike I havent even started one of my other bikes since I got the Buell. I have found what is causing my petrol drip its the small accelerator pump diaphragm allowing the fuel to come out the small bellows I have ordered a new one. lOl lOl

:yup: enjoy the Buell whilst the :sun: like you said earlier they are so good at the 60 to 85 roll on acceleration down the country roads, they have got mountains of mid-range torque :4roz:
