Motorcycle season coming up! (part deux)

Buell Primary Chain
Oooh! Shiny!

So now I’m opening up my Buell, to get to grips with the charging problem that cut last season short. Status right now is I’m missing another imperial size bit. Sweden is great in many ways, but if you want to get hold of non-metric tools, it isn’t. Anyhow, the plans for the Uly are as follows:

  • Rip out the guts of the primary case and install working replacement parts for stator and voltage regulator
  • Install single LED voltmeter into instrument cluster
  • Install grip heaters and new (08+ model) right-side switch pod
  • Install new jiffystand
  • Hopefully get everything back together again without too many spare parts lying around when everything is mounted and done
  • Get it checked up by Bilprovningen allmighty
  • Ride the heck out of the bike

Oh yeah: I’ll really try to do an Ironbutt/Saddle Sore 1000 ride this year. More on that later on.

For possible technically minded visitors, and for my own good, I’ve begun making a list of the tools needed to work on the Buell XB series of bikes; it can be found under Bike Rambling/Tech Tips
