Question about 2001 Buell X1 lightning

1 Answer

1997 S1 lightning

I bought a 1997 buell S1 lightning for the engine to put in my sportster gave a fair price the bike had been down 2 or 3 times but the main thing wrong with it was the rear shock was compleatly blown out I got a rear shock from a 2000 M2 cyclone but its a little to short & I was wondering if anyone makes a lowering block that I could put in place tho take up the gap or if I'm gonna have to fab up my own design. I don't have a problem doing that but it would be a whole lot nicer to just bolt a peice in & go. none of this would be an issue since I'm robbing the engine anyway but the bike fits my wife very well & she kinda digs it so instead of just robbing the engine I'm swapping them & then I get to have 2 bikes.

They had a recall on the shocks on those bikes.  They changed the shock and the bracket.  It depends on if your bike has been updated or not.  Also not all the shocks interchange.  The dealer can run your vin to tell you if the update has been done.,

How to put on the seat of a 2003 buell lightning XB9S motorcycle


Make sure the TOOL KIT IS NOT IN THE WAY (if you still have it) and that the battery IS THE CORRECT SIZE. Again, put the front down FIRST, and push toward the front of the bike then put the rear down and pop it onto the legs.

I want to put a sportster wheel on a buell fork. can i change bearings and do this?


Here is what you do. Take the bike and park it in the middle of the street and back over it with your car. Now the bike is as useless as it will be if you put that **** on there!
