  • For Sale Buell X-1 White Lightning

    never thought I'd do this, but the Buell is up for sale. Love this bike, but just don't ride it enough with two other bikes in the shed, and there is a new boat coming. It's a 2002 X-1 White Lightning, one of the last of the tube-framed Buells. It is fitted with the race kit, which was ECM, headers, and air cleaner. The pipe has some extra baffling, so it isn't cop bait. 39,xxx k's , clean dry motor, Rivera Primo clutch. Tyres are new, PR4 rear, Pilot Power front. So is the battery, and new fork seals just fitted at Chain Reaction. Registered until June 2018. Sharp eyes may spot the front indicators are a bit bodged, I have a new set of 4 LEDs coming. There are some marks on the headers where the PO lowsided it. No other marks. Some odds and ends of spares included.

        I so traumatised by putting it for sale I forgot a few details. like price and contact. And location. Asking $9K. PM me for anything else. The bike is currently located in Kalbarri,; I'll be coming down end of February and can bring it with me. If no interest on here by middle of Feb it's going on eBay. There has only been one of these on there in the last 2 years, must be getting hard to come by. Plenty of the later spar frame jobs.

            Out of curiosity, in the first photo, what is the round cylindrical thing in front og the exhaust?

            Also, does this thing run two air filters? looks like one air filter above the battery and one in between the cylinders?

            Is the engine oil in the swing arm?

              not a Buell person, are you that's Ok, the thing in front of the exhaust is a catch can and breather. That's the oil tank (dry sump motor) above the battery , fuel injection throttle body between the cylinders, with air cleaner on the LHS behind that carbon fibre. Normally referred to as a "ham can" type filter. Oil filter, spin on, in front of the crankcase.
              if you don't know about these bikes, they are really an acquired taste--I resisted riding them for years, but, once I did, had to own one. Big lump of a relatively low revving big v-twin in a very good frame and compact package. The motor on these is basically an Evo Sporty, 1203cc, but with different heads, cams, pistons, flywheels-pretty well everything. Normally dyno (with kit, as fitted) just over 100 RWHP, but the torque--quite addictive.

                Buell bikes are quite interesting...in later models the "fuel tank" was an air box, the oil was stored in the swing arm? and fuel in the frame? This one has the rear suspension down low near the muffler, great for c.g but is a low c.g good on a bike?

                not a fan of the exposed battery but the rest of it looks pretty cool.

                Good luck with the sale.

                        Looks like I'm sticking with my big block Buell.
                        Unless the lotteries commission decides otherwise.
