When you say "completely different engine," what do you mean? We didn't sell Buells at the HD shop I worked in, so I really don't know them that well. I thought all pre-1125 Buells were based on the XL engine, with minor variances in displacement etc. Aside from the Blast, which I think is a XL engine missing a cylinder?Wow. mscuddy has similar bad luck with his.
I have a 2003 XB9S. Completely different engine and bike. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
