Question about Buell V2C 250 T Motorcycles
I have had two Buell Ulysses from a Brisbane Harley Dealer and have put a total of 80 000km on the two of them. I can tell you that if you have an after-market exhaust installed (EG Jardine, etc) then surging and backfires are the name of the game. Power Commander and other replacement EFCs are not the answer either (because no proper solution was in place before they stopped Buell's production). I do run a Jardine on my current model and putting in the noise limiter has made for smoother running. Also...Buell's are subect to vibration in the bars. I installed anti-vibration weights in the bar-ends and voila'...no vibration...just great as I can now see my speedometer...LOL. I hope any of this is of some use to you. I LOVE my Buell. I've been riding over 50yrs, I've owned dozens of bikes, motorcycles are my daily ride and this is my favourite machine (followed close behind by my Hayabusa).

It has been so long since you posted your problem, I don't know if you'll see this reply, but I had problems with my 2007 Buell Blast. The engine ran rough. I bought it in January 2009 as a used bike from a dealer. By June I took it back for repair. It sputtered, surged and at times was hard to start or maybe wouldn't start at all. Since it was under warranty, I took it in for repair. The next day they called and said the only problem was I didn't have enough gas in the tank...?...B.S.! They charged me diagnostic fees and said the problem was my fault and not covered under warranty. As I drove out of their parking lot, the engine died and wouldn't start. I pushed it back to the shop, they kept it another day. Next I got a call that I wasn't letting the engine warm up enough. Turns out a friend at work suggested water in the gas. I drained from the reserve side of the petcock valve. I got LOTS of WATER. That is all it was. Runs fine now. I think it is because the gas cap is recessed and water stands around the rim and lets water seep into the tank. You might try that and see if that works for you.
