Seller description

Up for sale is my beloved liquid-cooled 2004 Buell Firebolt
XB12R, with 8995 miles. I have owned this bike since 2008, I am the second
owner (purchased with 478 miles on the odometer). I have lost interest in
riding altogether and decided to let someone else enjoy this one-off custom
bike.Factory specs 103HP 84ft.lb. TQ, 392lbs weight, 1203cc V-twin, 5-speed, belt driven. Please Google the full spec sheet to get familiar.

In 2011 I decided to convert the bike to water cooling,
using a rear mounted radiator with the goal of feeling cooler while riding in
hot Florida. Initially worked on liquid cooling both the head and cylinders,
however the porous head castings did not take the welding of the water jackets
well and I scrapped them, replaced with another set of XB12R heads (new valves,
seals). Continued the build with water cooled cylinders, electric water pump
(VW Passat aftercooler) 10” radiator fan (operated by the ECU like the factory
fan) and a radiator out of a 1200cc Kawasaki. After I got the entire liquid
cooling setup done I decided to do some powdercoating. In flat black: frame
(tank), fairing stay, swingarm, belt idler bracket, triple tree (upper and
lower), front engine mount. In wrinkle black: engine covers, rear frame, catch
can, radiator, radiator shroud, valve covers. In Flat intense blue: wheels, rear
belt pulley, idler pulley, heel guards. In amber: front fork tubes. Ceramic
coated: header and muffler. Body plastics have been painted flat black.

The bike has a Bridgestone Battlax front tire and Dunlop
Sportmax rear tire, both recently replaced and in excellent shape. Original
Buell drive belt. Bike comes with the original Buell key and 2 spare unbranded
keys. Also included are the rear axle removal tool, 2005 parts catalog,
original frame VIN sticker (removed prior to powdercoating).

Condition:

The bike has usual wear on all items not powdercoated. Items
needing attention:

Muffler has coating chipped on top (old battery leaked on
it)

Rear seat cover needs a better attachment system (still
works but can be improved)

Instrument cluster has a small melted area from an old Zero
Gravity Double Bubble windscreen (common problem, focuses sun and melts it)

Paint on front caliper dirty (brake fluid damage)

Right fork small leak

Right BUELL logo on airbox cover peeled a little in the
middle

Muffler has a small dent on the bottom towards the front,
not visible from the side

Spark plugs are new, air filter is clean, the bike needs
nothing to be used as is. Runs amazing and significantly cooler with the liquid
cooling, a lot of engine heat is transferred to the radiator and dispersed
behind the rider. Both brake rotors recently resurfaced, reinstalled with new
brake pads.

 

You will never come across another liquid cooled Buell or
any H-D Evo engine in the world! Nearly $2000 spent on this bike’s cooling system
and custom powdercoating!

I am probably forgetting some custom details about the bike,
I am sure you will discover them if you have had another Firebolt before. I have uploaded a video of the bike on Youtube, showing details and engine running, please search for "Liquid Cooled Buell XB12R Firebolt" by Coolflames1979bgI also have a matching AXIO hardshell backpack available to the buyer for extra $150.
