  1. Raz, I followed your link to MyECU, seems to promise to fix all of the issues with my bike. What kind of problemns were you having that lead to you purchasing "MyECU"? is this the mecca of ECMs? does it truly deliver all that it claims? Anyone else out there using this product that can chime in. Seems that in concert with some of the research I have done in the past that the ECUs are really at the heart of a lot of issues with these bikes......I would like to end up with a system that gets rid of teh mulitple gained black boxes....just in theory that seems frightening....and in reality
  2. Raz, nice looking 1100 sport you have there, I like the smoked screen with the turned up "lip" where did you find that one? I chose the carbon fiber oval Mistral cans and think they look great! Im afraid to ask because the answer is clearly going to be better than mine, but how does yours run? any dogging issues you cant seem to resolve? Ive noticed there seems to be two versions of head lights on these things, yours seems tapered and its flush against the fairing, mine is square and recessed, wondering if I have an older front fairing and headlight..... as for your input, valve clea
  3. Im really not sure what all was checked I was so frustreated with the "mechanic" and the experience that I have not pursued anything else on the bike, it now spends a great deal of its life parked in the garage as art instead of being ridden and enjoyed. They claimed they balanced the throttle boddies...but.....as for base line and such...no telling. I recommended that they look into the chip that was in the computer and replacing that as a start but they insisted that they could fix it with a power commander since they were a dealer for that product, many order issues later and still the sa
  4. The bike coughs and stutters frequently, quite frequently in the mid RPM rnage 2500 to roughly 3800 and it will stall at idle at stops, it becomes an exercise to keep it running at stops just a little of the "choke" and then either deal iwth teh cough and sputter or ride about 4000 RPM, it dows fine accelerating through the mid RPM, it just reacts poorly at constant speed and holding RPM in that range. I took it a shop out west of DC, dont want to offend anyone that likes that shop, three different times, they claim they balanced the Throttle boddies and cleaned the injectors, then dyno
  5. In the process of sorting my next bike, thinking about the V11 LeMans which brings me here, while sorting this out I am hoping some or even one of you can help me work through a stubborn 97 1100sport. It does not run well in the 2500 to 3800 RPM range but once above 4k it runs great....but dont want to spend a lot of time int raffic or leisurly riding this bike above 4k....Im sure the Italians intended for it to burn above here but ..... History, I bought the bike on line and it ran this way when it showed up. Had air box removed and cone filters installed and an aftermarket chip accordi
  6. I have thought a lot about getting the buell s3-t and have the perfect color combination in mind, if it shows up for sale...ITS MINE! LOL I have had the 99 buell x-1 that I posted a pic of since it was new, and have had it down to the frame twice, once to convert it to the 3/4 fairing version as you see, and once again because it didnt become obvious to me that it would look better with the frame and wheels powdercoated white to match the lettering and the white gauges, I prefer the trellis style frames to the new versions...not with regards to riding or ergonomics..just the bitchin looks! by
  7. Ive had a few things dissapear with that type of comment..its the funny thing about things, people will always find some way to pay you what you think it would take to sell it.....I had a sand-rail for sale but blocking the access to the garage was a really custom truck that was not for sale....he left with the truck and I still had the sand-rail to sell.....guess thats what I get for thowing a number out there. that was twenty years ago and I still remember that lesson!
  8. not really the correct forum, but here is the buell......
  9. Thanks to all, and as I expected...its all over the board! LOL, its the great thing about not being 20...gettting to ride what you want cause you want to not what you are expected to ride! Still searching and spending countless hours on ebay and such...price...model....etc. In the barn: 1997 motot guzzi 1100 sport, 2003 harley fatboy, 1999 buell x1 (modified with a european 3/4 fairing and a few other tricks), 2005 big dog chopper. the itch not scratched....sport touring but would like to keep the price reasonable, the mx low and the fun factor high.

  11. So Im not the onnly one...I have four mtorcycle and have been riding for 30years counting dirt bikes and the only bike I cant seem to remember to get the %$#@ side stand up is on my 1100 sport. girlfriend followed me for several miles honking trying to get my attention, yeah like I can hear a horn honk above the sound of a guzzi at 4500RPM with mistrel pipes.......Ive left it down maybe 5 or 6 times now.....rookie move eh?!
  12. new to the group and looking for some thoughts and opinions, now granted this is a biased group......I am searching for the "perfect" sport tour that also scratches the eclecti itch. Have just returned from a trip on a Harley Fat boy and think I want something a little more...well of everything. Have started looking at several bikes, an ST, RT, an old FJ and possibly a lemans. I also have a 97 1100 sport, by the way its the only single seater I have seen of its kind here in the states, in the garage its definitely cool, a freight train by comparison to other bikes out there, but I have had
