Not just a vibration but more of a shake at 1500 to 1700 rpm. Is this just life with a Buell or should it be checked out?These bikes are known to shake alot at idle. Check if your tires properly balanced.,,

2007 buel lightning 12Ss How do I unclog the fuel injectors I have replace the fuel It could be the fuel filter. I been over sea's for three year.

Drop the fuel pump out of the bike and drain it. You might have to buy new injectors and a fuel pump. The fuel pump has a trap door to get to it - Google and download the buell factory service manual for your bike.

I am trying to change the clutch cable on a 07 xb12ss and a piece fell into the crank case. how do i remove the cover so that i can retreive the part this is such a poor design whats the best way to get it...

Not a poor design, if you dropped something down inside of a say Honda - you would be splitting the cases to get it out. On the Harley/buell motor you just loosen all of the allen head bolts and remove them and remove the shifter assembly and pull the inspection cover off. pull the next set of bolts if you want to remove the whole cover.

I have a Buell 2008 lightning xb12ss, its just started

Some early 2008 models have issues with the Idle Air Control motor that can cause those symptoms. This would be covered for replacement under warranty.

These symptoms could also be an intake leak.

Mysterious backfire

and has happened when engine braking. The strange part is when the other day I was in 5th gear going 60mph it did it again. It has 2600 miles on it from when I bought it new and and have followed the manufacturers instructions for break in & maintenence to the letter. I have been back to the dealer twice for the same problem and they can't duplicate the problem.Its normal.  Only things I have found that help to cure the problem the easiest way, is to re-route the breather and open up the airbox.,,,
