Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the 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.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

SOURCE: 2005 buell firebolt blinkers dont work

Your flasher unit is behind the headlight nose area. Not the hardest to get too. Did you check the bulbs? Even though chance of all the bulbs being blown are slim. The flasher unit, hang on I'll go get my manual......Ok. The flasher unit like I said is behind the nose. When standing in front of the bike it will be above and to the left of the left headlamp.Hmm? Was your bike up for the headlight reto kit from Buell? Mine got a brighter set of headlamps for free. If your's has been recalled could always ask dealer to check while they are in there. If not it isn't a really hard job but a little tricky.

SOURCE: i have a 2005 buell xb12r firebolt. problem is it

There should be a starter relay somewhere (under the seat, maybe). These can go bad. Low voltage electricity is a pain. Make sure that EVERY connection is tight and does not have any corrosion under them. Try tapping on the starter casing lightly with a screwdriver handle or small tack hammer while pressing the starter button. Might have a dead spot on the armature.

SOURCE: My brother has a 2006

He's got a short in the electrical line leading to the ignition. Something is making contact (bare wire, worn spot in the wire insulation, etc...) with the frame, causing it to ground out, popping the fuse. Check the wiring underneath the ignition switch and where the wiring follows the bike frame to the starter, to see if a worn spot exists, or if some other form of contact between the frame & wiring has occurred.

Buell xb9 blowing head light and fuses


Hi, Anonymous you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short.
