2004 Buell Firebolt XB12R – #x0024;5000 (Glendora)
611 East Route 66
Remember when you believed in America and the vision of Erik Buell? Back before he got involved in EBR Branded Foreign Investment Scams and look how cool I am playing guitar on Facebook photos? Let us be real about this. It is, after all, a Buell.
If you don’t have a well stocked toolbox and a clue, this is not the bike for you. This would be a great bike for you if what you want is to hook computer lines up to it and show all your friends your custom map and data, but do me a favor and don’t bother. If what you want is to look cool at Starbucks, yeah, it will do that. But you probably shouldn’t buy this bike. The Motion Pro Medium Compound Road Control Grips are going to callous your soft pretty hands.
If you think you need traction control or ABS/linked brakes, well, stop reading. You can get yourself a super cool Ninja 300 and your friends are going to be impressed. If, on the other hand, you want to feel the Hand of God Pushing you forward when you grab a handful of throttle, then here is the throttle you have been looking for.
You want a pure American Sportbike experience where you understand you are not going up or down that canyon any faster with or without an extra hundred horsepower, then boy, do I have a bike for you. If the High Compression Hell’s Thunder Roar of American Power sounds like liquid music to you, then you know what this bike is. This 2004 Buell Firebolt has a heavy duty crank manufactured by Q E Performance of Anaheim. The motor has just recieved a 12:1 Hi-Comp set of Wiseco Pistons.
The bike uses Twin Tuner EFI management and includes all software and cables. The Twin Tuner is wired to an Erik Buell Race ECM. The fuel pump is EBR high pressure.
Wood craft GP rearsets, DD Exhaust, Frame Pucks and Airtech bodywork make this one a bike that people stop to look at. Fresh Dunlop Qualifier Q2s have 130 Buttonwillow miles on them. Carbon Fiber Air Box Cover, Carbon Fiber Front and Rear Fenders, and CRG Brake and Clutch Levers. Also includes stock fairings, headlight, and parts.
Asking for $5000- Save yourself the phone call if you think that means I will take half if your wife will let you have it.
Unique sound and unique looks. For a unique individual. Not for a poseur or a squid, or a skippy or someone that thinks their Icon Vest is going to act like a force field and protect them in their basketball shoes and t-shirt.
This bike was my dream. Sometimes dreams turn into nightmares. Do I really want to sell it? Depends on you.
