Question about 2007 Buell Lightning Long XB12Ss
Just picked up my new long lightning. I've put 300 miles on it and it runs great at 3000 rpm and above. Around town at 200-2800 rpm it surges and just doesn't seem smooth. I took it back to the dealership and they said its fine. Is it the nature of the beast or is something wrong?
Is it brand new? If so it's pretty normal. The bikes don't like running smoothly below 2k at all. As it breaks in it will get a bit better but it's difficult to not jerk it around at low RPM and slow speeds. Best bet is to keep the RPM at 2200+. Also if it is new when you get to the 1k TPS reset it should help as well.,,,
