Question about Buell Firebolt XB12R Motorcycles

Buell firebolt stuck in gear

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

SOURCE: Harley transmission stuck in 3rd gear

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.

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.

How oil goes in the primary for 03 Buell firebolt xb9r


Stand the bike upright (use a swingarm stand or lean against a wall), then poor one quart of oil (I recommend Harley Formula+) into either of the windows on the primary cover. The oil should be just covering the bottom of the gear visible in the larger window.

I have a 2004 xl883 converted to 1200 need to change the fluids. does the transmission and the primary use the motor oil that you are putting in bike or is it differant. and when you drain oil and...


You engine uses three quarts of 20W50 oil. The primary and transmission share the same oil and it uses about a quart of oil. One the late model Big Twins, you can use H-D's Syn 3 in all areas. Not sure about the Sportster. I've always used the H-D primary/transmission lubricant for Sportsters. If you wish to use any other brand of lubricant, you need to go to their website and check to see what they say use in what area. Some of the other popular lubricants are Amsoil, Royal Purple, Mobil V-Twin, and Red Line.

Good Luck

2007 buell blast, having issues with the shifting, it gets stuck on 2nd gear, sometimes 3rd gear, any help would do since my bike does not have any more warranty's.


Check and change the trans fluid that is in the engine just behind the shifter - pull the drain plug out that is under the shifter and let everything drian out. put the plug in and then open the inspection cover begind the left foot peg and pout in 1 FULL QUART OF HARLEY PRIMARY DRIVE OIL. YES, IT USES A SPECIAL OIL. That should fix your tranny issues.

How much primary chain oil is needed in a 1997 wide glide and the best way to put it in


Ok here is the spec for primary oil, if you take off the clutch inspection cover and look inside, you will see a metal or silver ring around the clutch, look closely inside, this will be your spec.

Once you locate this ring around the clutch, put the bike upright and level, and start filling the primary from where the clutch is. Once the fluid reaches the bottom of this ring with the bike upright and level, you have just reached the spec.

It should be about 1 quart.

I usually just put in a quart.
