Buell 2007 xb12r Modification Questions

I've got an xb9r now, if i get the xb12r what type of modifications will i have to make to it for good stunting? Change the idle or sprorket or anything? And if i put a 12 bar and crash cage on it will it bend the engine mount or subframe? Any one had any problems with that?

A big ass sprocket will help. You'd have to have a pretty damn hard wreck to bend the frame.

I've heard they have so much damn torque as is...that they will come up pretty easy. I huge rear sprocket would amplify that effect.

I can't imagine you'd have any problems with things getting bent anymore than you would with any other stunt machine... I figure that the companies making those 12 bars and crash cages specifically to avoid bending/breaking things... And yes, go with a bigger pulley in the back...

First thins I would do is to change out the belt driven sprocket to a chain drievn one. There will be more sprocket and chain combos available and they will last longer. Most of all the Buell stunters do this.

As far as the cage and 12 bar go, freestyle ingenuity make good products for all type of bikes.

TRUTH! Rep pt!

and as a belt they are called pulleys!

Anyway... you should already have some but if not you should also get the frame pucks.

There is a vid floatin around here somewhere of some buells stuntin!

I love the buells.... but Eric Buell I'm sure hates to see them stunt. That is toally 180 degrees from what he wanted them to do....

I think only one company makes a 12 bar and crash cage for them. Freestyle hasn't done it yet. I dont think enough people stunt them yet. team xtreem is bring them some credit though.

True he was a road racer, but those guys are sponsored by Buell! You can see the same videos on their corporate website here.
