Default Re: 2007 Buell Lightning XB12STT

Ahhh.......I'm still gonna go with the SV650S. Wonder when Buell will upgrade the steam-engine to something more forward thinking? Coal-in-frame. It's a shame. I really love everything about this bike....except the engine. Can't Buell find an engine from another maker, or does he have to use a Harley?

Default Re: Its not the power, but the power BAND...

Does the SV650 still need valve adjustments like my inline 4? i.e. are we stuck we having valve adjustments for any high performance motorcycle engine? I heard that the old Honda Night Hawk had self adjusting valves...

Default Buell's Top Speed?

How fast can a Lightning go? 140? 150? 160? With the exception of a track setting, does it have enough motor to make you smile (and get a little nervous) in a real world setting?
