SOURCE: axle wont come out of my buell xb9r

If it's the front axle you are probably fighting either the pinch bolt that keeps the axle from coming loose on the road, a misalignment between the fork bottoms and probably a little corrosion on the threads.

1) First off do the simple stuff: make sure that the pinch bolts (2 of them on the bottom of the shifter side fork) are loose. then move on to step 2

2)For the corrosion an aerosol penetrating fluid left to soak a few hours or overnight can work wonders. Be sure to do both sides.

A misalignment can be bad news, it usually means a bent axle, but even then you can relieve stress on the axle by removing the front fender and letting the ends find their own parallel. In extreme cases dropping the forks out of the triple clamps could even be necessary....but you'd be able to see the bend just by casual inspection for that to be the case.

The rear axle requires many more steps due to tension from the belt tensioner causing trouble if things aren't done in a precise order in regards to the belt. BEWARE if your firebolt is an 03 or 04 and has it's original belt they can be damaged by improper handling which leads to unhappy rider stranded by broken belt. If you need more help beyond this I really recommend looking up the website www.badweatherbikers.com They are a friendly bunch of dedicated bunch of Buell fanatics and can help with any problem.

SOURCE: how hard is it to change plugs in an 03 buell

Well, it depends on how nimble your fingers are!

for the front plug: remove the shifter side air scoop. . You should be able to get an open end wrnch up onto the plug pretty easily. When it is loose remove the spark plug boot from the plug. Next put the new plug up into the head and start the threads gently BY HAND!. This is an aluminum head and the plug has steel threads. You do not want to strip those threads. Once the plug is finger tight give it another 1/6 to 1/4 turn with the open ended wrench. then reach up with those nimble fingers (or a pair of plug boot pliers) and slip the plug wire back on until it seats.

The rear head requires the removal of the inner and outer airbox. you can then reach down and remove the plug wire. removing the plug requires a plug socket, an extension 6-8 inches and either 1 or 2 swivels depending on how close to the frame the extension is when on the plug. back it out and remove. I recommend using a piece of rubber tubing to hold onto the rear plug in order to carefully start the plug into the threads (see above). Then once it is "finger tight" remove the tubing and use the socket to tighten properly.

Then you re-assemble your bike and go for a ride. It sounds harder than it is, and with a bit of practice we were doing this in between rounds on the race bike in minutes.

Buell Blast electrical problem


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, keeps burning out or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
3. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
4. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
7. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
8. Weak charging alternator/generator.
9. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier, overcharging.

2003 xb9r buell not charging the battery


Hi, Anonymous in order to check out any main system electrical circuit, you have to start with a fully charged battery 12.5 volts or better, and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
1. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
2. Check the voltage drop at the battery when you hit the starter button, anything below 9 volts you might have a faulty battery.
3. Check voltage at the battery with the bike running at 3,600 RPM should be 14.3 to 14.7 volts. If you are not getting these numbers, you might have a faulty voltage regulator.
4. Make sure voltage regulator is grounded and functioning properly, watch the video below on how to test a voltage regulator.
5. Unplug the connector to the alternator and hook your multimeter leads to the alternator (pin/socket selection does not matter) set the multimeter to AC volts, at an idle the meter should read 16 to 20 volts AC. at 2,000 RPM 32 to 40 AC volts, 3,000 RPM 48 to 60 AC volts. If you are not getting these numbers, you may have a faulty rotor, follow step 6
6. Set the multimeter to OHM'S, connect one lead to the alternator (any pin/socket) and the other to a ground, the meter should read infinity. Connect both leads to the alternator meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 OHM'S. If you are not getting these numbers, you have a bad stator.
7. Check all wiring in the charging circuit for worn or chaffed spots and all wiring connectors in the circuit for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets, which is the # 1 offender.

Where is the speed sensor located on a 2003 XB9r Firebolt


Hi, Wilson4527 the vast majority of speedometer issues is caused by the speed sensor and or the wiring. On Sportsters the sensor is located on top of the engine case behind the rear cylinder, on big twins it's located on the right side of the transmission case between the starter end cap and the transmission top cover. Remove the bolt/screw that secures the sensor and lift the sensor out of the case. Inspect it for damage and contamination, if there appears to be no damage wipe the end of the sensor clean and reinstall, you can go for a short quick test ride to see if the speedo is working. If the issue still exists grab your test light and unplug the harness connector from the sensor, check for power (red wire) and ground (black wire) continuity coming from the speedo, there is also the connector that plugs into the speedometer, also look for corroded, broken or loose pin/sockets. If everything checks out OK then replace the speed sensor.

Where is the switch that cuts on the cooling fans on a 2000 grand am with a 3.4 engine


The computer turns on the fan. Based on sensors from the motor.
DTC P0480 - COOLING FAN CIRCUIT

Circuit Description

The cooling fan is controlled by PCM through the fan relay based on inputs from ECT sensor, IAT sensor, A/C selector switch, A/C refrigerant pressure switch and vehicle speed sensor. PCM controls cooling fan by grounding cooling fan control circuit which turns on cooling fan relay.

The fan relay will be commanded on when ECT reaches 223°F (106°C) or greater, A/C is requested or vehicle speed is less than 38 MPH. Cooling fan relay will also be commanded on regardless of vehicle speed when a DTC is set requesting cooling fan to be on, ECT is 304°F (151°C) or greater, or A/C refrigerant pressure is high. Cooling fan may also be commanded on when engine is not running, on certain conditions.

Conditions for setting DTC:

Battery voltage greater than 9.5 volts.

Cooling fan fault line detects a malfunction for 6 seconds.

1. Check cooling system. Ensure coolant level and belt tension are correct. Adjust/repair as necessary. After repairs, go to step 23). If no adjustment or repairs were required, go to next step.

2. Turn ignition on, with engine off. Using scan tool, check if cooling fan is operating with ECT at less than 209°F (98°C). If cooling fan is off, go to next step. If cooling fan is on, go to step 4).

3. Command cooling fan relay on. If cooling fan operates, go to step 23). If cooling fan does not operate, go to step 5).

4. Turn ignition off. Disconnect PCM harness connector. If cooling fan turns off, go to step 23). If cooling fan does not turn off, go to step 6).
