Current ride: Buell S1 Lightning
Location: Glasgow, Scotland
I got a bit of a telling off on this forum for buying a nearly standard 96 S1 , but Ive been busy and listened to certain Gurus on this forum, the list so far, seat reworked as it was like a suppository, Genuine Mikuni carb, X1 swing arm, EBC Pro Lite disc, X1 isolators, upgraded primary chain tensioner, lucky hands oil pump drive gear, XB12 heads, 2 1/2" race headers, with upgraded dogbone mount, Billet front mount, and finally one of the Race pro pipes obtained through this forum, I also lined the tank with Caswell., the jurys still out on changing my shock as I have heard mixed reports. The bike now goes, stops and sounds good , thanks for all the help and advice from this forum.

Be interesting to see how long the caswell lasts :P

Used it in two metal bike tanks and used flowliner in Landrover tank.

I'd get it changed...it's a "recall" shock anyway ;)

I'm pretty sure mine has never been replaced, is it still possible that HD would honour the recalls, not that I plan on fitting it on any time soon but it might be good to have :?:

What mixed reports on the shock have heard? Some snap at the neck and some don't? lOl It should've be sorted under a recall.

I'm not too sure they would honour the recall, mine was done 15 years ago and took LOTS of enquiries led by Alan (1203) who worked for Buell HD
