For all things Buell 1125R, XB12, XB9, Firebolt, Lightning, or Ulysses motorcycles please visit .
Yes, this is a big plug here for BadWeB, but after ten years and still going strong, doesn't it deserve it? It is by far the most popular, most comprehensive Buell forum and information resource anywhere.
Please beware the recent rash of new dubious "Buell*" or "1125R*" domains/sites that appear to be disingenuous storefronts seeking to cash-in on Buell Motorcycle Company's growing success.
It's not likely that such trademark infringing domain names will be allowed to stand & we've had complaints about non-delivery of products
You can trust BadWeB, we aren't a storefront out to sell stuff. We're only interested in providing a safe, reliable, and congenial place for all Buell enthusiasts. And we argue sometimes too.:]
Come on in and say "hello!" :)

Late this summer I finally bought my first street bike 07 xb12s. I've been working with it as much as the weather allows. I don't like the heat and I don't like the lack of wind protection at high speeds. The latter keeps my operating range down. With Buell getting crucified on my birthday I thought I should get the 1125r for a huge discount. I mostly wanted it because I've become kinda militant about enjoying a HD engine in my Buell! I get pissed every time I accelerate and hear and feel the tractor motor doing its part. So I want a Rotax but the pirates only have 08 1125rrrrs and 09crrrs. i 've been reading that the 08's have heat problems as well.
I can't decide if the 08 1125r is a better choice than the 09 1125CR. I think I want an improvement in comfort at high speed so I can increase my range and lower my fatigue but of course I don't want to be complaining about the heat and the gearing around town. So do I get the new and improved Rotax with extra wind or the original?
