Alright, so there's a slim chance I might get out of this a little cheaper than I thought.
So there's a pink wire that runs from the switch to the ECU, and I've seen a few people on forums say that when the wire gets pinched, or the zener diode goes bad it sends too much voltage or not enough to the ecu and either makes the fuel pump not prime, or I've even seen one person say the injectors won't fire.
The pink wire is supposed to have 5v on it, this is what it's got:
So... $130 switch (assuming it fixes it) is a lot better than a $300 used ecu. I can at least try it.
As far as I know, the old Buell's were more focused on privateer racing. Buy a works rear shock, change the fork springs, different exhaust, solo seat cowl and either a full fairing, or replace the front with a number plate.
Hell, even the bike that the company was started for was made to destroy the class it was supposed to race in.
The EBR bikes are more along the lines of off the shelf "buy and race" once you put race fairings on it.
Really, it's just a matter of buying a body kit from Airtech Streamlining.
The orange one is supposed to be their version of the HD VR1000's body kit on a Buell base :lol: And I'm sure the XB's ride a hell of a lot better than the Tubers. Like I said before, everyone says they're more "raw" or "brutal" than the XB's.
I know of one Tuber with an XB full fairing kit with custom brackets so it would fit.
