Question about Buell Firebolt XB12R Motorcycles
I did change the primary fluid today with fluid from local part store that stated it was good for Harley motor and primary fluid I put in 1 quart and drove it a bit later and it stuck in gear did I do something wrong. I thought when it cools off I would go try to move shifter a bit. By chance could primary need more than one quart

The only way to tell whats wrong is to remove the trans top or ratchet lid and look whats going on. Chanses are it's something in the shift mechanism.

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.

drain primary fluid,remove clutch inspection cover make sure not to lose spring hex when removing,with small screw driver turn adjuster so the hex nut screws out (left handed threads) remove ball and ramp off cable careful not to drop anything into primary.okay now go up cable to mid-range adjuster and back off (together) then go up to clutch lever and remove there a snap ring that you should replace and be mindful of cable rounting then go back down to primary cover and remove,when putting new one in be sure not to over tighten and don't forget o-ring, after all reinstalled to adjust clutch screw adjuster in to it lightly seats and back off 1/4 to 1/2 turn and adjust mid range until you have a 1/16 to 1/8 freeplay at lever pull and release three times to make sure the ramp and ball have seated good luck
