2002 Buell x1 lightning

#1 Unread post by jeffo »

I have puchased a 2002 buell x1 lightning. It is in perfect shape.(like new) It has a BUELL PRO SERIES exhaust and off road use only box under the seat,also after market intake etc? I previously owned a 2000 ZX12R NINJA, so this BUELL Harley Davidson stuff is totally new to me. My brothers own big Harley cruisers and rode my new BUELL and said it's faster than anything they ever rode besides my NINJA ZX12R. Can any one tell me about Pro Series stuff(BUELL)? I have already removed the BUELL graphics and added DUCATI stripes, lowered the headlight and fairing, and replaced the handle bars with lower PROTAPER alluminum bars. I do like this bike, it's a differant world than my ZX12R NINJA. thanks for any help I can get with BUELL info. Jeffo, Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

People say I'm stupid and apathetic. I don't know what that means, and I don't care.
Always wear a helmet, eye protection, and protective clothing. Never ride under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Hi Jeff, welcome to the TMW motorcycle community. :D

Sounds like that bike is pimped out pretty seriously! How about a photo of it?

We are pretty Buell insane!!! in NJ
Sorry I didn't see this sooner Best of luck with the Tuber they are truly ART!!!!!
Off road use is a race ECM BTW but you probably know that by now. also racetek I believe, is a good way to go when the shock goes. The X1 is the best looking Buell IMO
there aint nothin like it
