Postby Pon » Fri Jun 03, 2022 2:56 pm

Hello, I've just bought a Uly and it needs a front engine isolator, would anyone have one going spare they would like to sell?

There you go start the post thinking one thing and post about something else!
Anyhow, she's running ricer than bill gates, just banging in the "exhaust" looks like one o' those cheap ones but better? I think it's been imported from Japan (what I was told & it has an ETC for Japanese tolls under the seat) It's got a race use only ECU. Here she is, say Konnichiwa! Tidy for 75k kms

or have a look on ebay

I've seen the new prices and there's nowt in the UK on ebay at the mo'. I posted on FB and a chap in USA said he has 2 but it's a malarky, he's going to send me some pics.
I also banged the bike in the for sale section as I don't think it's for me. I got my beady eye on the 1125CR in Montrose. Anyone know the bloke?

There is a post on the facebook group from Twin Motorcycles Buell
they have started making a replacement front mount , look like they are looking for some high milage users to test them for feed back
looking at the pictures it seems it uses the original bracket but replaces the isolastic mount

:old: sort of reminds me of MK3 Cortina void bush :old:

Exactly...Buell/H-D never manufactured a bush, they sourced an existing item from elsewhere...I reckon if you walked into any US motor factors with that bush they'd instantly identify it as a Chevy wishbone item or whatever :idea:

...and to be fair, I've yet to see one of the later mounts fail, so Pon is very unlucky ?
