Question about Buell X1W lightning White Motorcycles

1 Answer

Bought a X1 White Lightning in September 2001, a 2002 model. Paid for racing engine management unit, Vance & Hince and air filter. The racing management system was never installed as the dealer couldn't get it running. After many other problems I have with this machine, I am now in South Africa (just btw), I have been battling with it for 3 years now running from one dealer to the next without getting to a solution. The bike starts fine in the morning and would run about 10 miles, backfire a couple of times and die. Leaving for 45 minutes to an hour, during which it just would not start, itt would fire up again, run 1 or 2 miles, backfire and quit again and just won't start for at least 45 minutes.

Need fuel filter part number and/or aftermarket brand


There are so many different things that can make the bike do that. The fuel pump could be going out(VERY COMMON) or you could have a dirty AIR FILTER causing the restriction. if the fuel filter was the problem you would more than likely have some backfiring or popping coming from the engine. Need more info to diagnose it. However if you want any parts - Harley Davidson and American sportbikes are a few of the only places to get em.

My 2000 buell no power on acceleretion?


I think the 2000 x1 was fuel injected. You might have bad gas, a weak fuel pump, a plugged up air filter, any number of things. is there a check engine light on?

Have put vance and hince powershot slipons on, vance and hince fuelpac and k&n high flow air filter.The bike when warm sometimes stalls when idling what can i do. thanks


Sounds like it's running lean. Almost everything you mentioned here would cause a carb equipped bike to run lean and cough and sputter and stall. Since you bike is fuel injected, I cannot help you. If it were mine, I'd take it to someplace that could put it on a dynometer with an exhaust gas analyzer. They may recommend the installation of a PowerCommander. Your local dealer may can change the fuel map.
