Default No chain to lube

One other thing no one has mentioned here. If you are like me, and you ride a lot I.E at least 1,000+ miles a month. Then you get tired of cleaning, and lubing a chain. One of the reasons I went with a Buell was to get ride of taking care of a chain twice a month. I would rather be out riding!

Default Re: Buell S3 vs Kawasaki Z1000 - a pointless comparison

Does it really look like a kawasaki police 1000 or a voyager to you. I think the police 1000 looks like a harley(or should I say wants to look like a harley) and the voyager looks like a geo metro.

Compared to these 2 bikes I would say the z1000 looks more like a buell( or should I say wants to).

Of course you would say that, but don't forget, your Buell's have not done that well in formula xtreem, and you still owe me $20 bucks!

Well, OK, I was thinking more of the race-rep sportbikes. Don't think the Z1000 "attempt" to look like a Buell is much of a success, though. Only a Buell really looks like a Buell (though a civilian might confuse a tube-frame Buell with a Duc Monster.

I think it would be very funny to see those gold pipes on a new ZX10 or R1.



I should say that the buell and duc do have about the same outdated equipment so they are about the same.

Well, I guess one man's "outdated" is another man's "classic". To each his own --

you get an engine with great torque, decent power/weight, above average gas mileage... plus Buell is already shipping engines that meet California 2008 emission standards without needing a catalytic converter...



the latter point may not impress a squid but to an engineer it's a hell of an accomplishment
