Use a motorcycle specific oil. in your pimary case Either spectro, royal purple, or even HD's branded oil. automotive oils will ruin your clutch due to molybendum-disulfide in the oil as a "friction modifier". The primary oil is drained down by the kickstand and filled through the round hole hy where your shifter foot is when riding.

For engine oil a 10-40 or similar full synthetic is the choice of riders "in the know" but good old dino juice will do the trick too. Engine oil is drained from the bottom of the swingarm and refilled through the cap on top. Many people drain the primary by accident the first time.

check here on the Buell web site for an online copy of your manual. Look under lubrication and maintenance: http://www.buell.com/en_us/owners/manuals.asp

My xb12 will not fire. where to start for ignition


Hi, Cconerly85 and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. 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.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

09 buell xb12r firebolt, problems when bike is running cant shift into nuetral


I have an 04 firebolt and sometimes it can be a chore getting nuetral on it also. Are you sure your not just skipping it by going to far with shift lever? I sometimes have to have it in 1st or 2nd and lightly let out on the clutch handle. Just enough that the clutch wants to ingage the gear . I rock the bike forward and back a little while looking for nuetral.
