2006 Buell Ulysses on 2040-motos
Buell Ulysses description
Hi there and thank you for viewing my listing !
First off, I LOVE this bike and hate to see it go. I took on a new role at work which has seen me traveling throughout the states. So not only do I not get to ride her anywhere near as much as I would like but I have acquired new toys that need to be payed off.
I've been riding motorcycles for a few decades now (damn I'm old) and have in that time raced motocross, done a bunch of track days on my R1's, and have logged a few hundred thousand miles on two wheels... I'm a motorcycle guy.
This Buell is one the most capable and comfortable bikes in existence- (feel free to challenge that, but the loser pays the expenses). I can take her on twisty roads like the kancamagus Highway in NH and drag my knee sliders, on the very comfortable two hour ride back home I have taken detours through power line trails. Essentially, this bike is happy just about anywhere and has given me years of enjoyment.
A 2006 Buell XB-12XT with 24,000 miles. Oil's changed religiously every 3k miles with HD's full Synthetic blend coupled to a K&N oil filter and a regularly cleaned K&N filtercharger air filter.
ECMSPY software uploaded and running a custom tune developed to complement my short list of performance parts.
Ported Airbox cover, feeding a K&N airfilter
Hawk Performance exhaust - Loudest version (still civil but you Will be heard)
Removed exhaust butterfly valve, I think I still have it somewhere and can include it in the sale
Right side air scoop for better cooling to the rear cylinder.
Recently rebuilt front forks.
EBC HH compound front and rear brake pads w 80 % life left.
Two windscreens- a tinted ZeroGravity that's a good deal taller than stock while maintaining a very sport look. The second screen is the Large Memphis Shade (with Palmer adapter) one pictured and blocks just about all the wind, Great for late season riding. Heated Grips thanks to the Oxford Heaterz Premier Adventure grips, these will Burn your hand without gloves on the highest setting. Wrapped headers. Palmer Highway Brackets which really let you stretch out on longer rides. I also have some wind deflectors for the front forks I'll include in the sale.
Palmer Light bracket, coupled to two 16 watt led lights and a waterproof light switch from Twisted Throttle.
The headlights have also been modified with brighter bulbs and the wiring has been modified so both headlights come on when the high beam is engaged.
A led battery gauge from kuryakyn.
Hepco Becker- Gobi 37 Liter Panniers
Hepco Becker- Top box w wired in super bright led light. I used bullet connectors so you can easily remove the box.
Dry Spec large tool tubes mounted to the Gobi panniers each with a 30 oz red MSR fuel can.
TomTom late model GPS mounted on RAM Mounts motorcycle GPS holder
Important- Tires will need replacement very soon. They are Metzler's Turance Next tires and I Highly recommend them.
I brilliantly misplaced the keys for the panniers so I'm using a generic key which does the trick with some wiggling. The top box is missing the tumbler, so to lock it that will need to be replaced. I haven't bothered with these as she lives in the garage and I haven't been able to ride much lately anyways,
The battery is about five years old and still runs strong, but not sure how long it will last. It is spending the off season on a battery tender.
She is a 2006 and as such has a host of character adding imperfections but nothing major.
Please feel free to ask any questions you may have and bid with confidence as this bike has been very well taken care of. Naturally, I'm happy to assist with the shipping arrangements.

The EBR 1190RX had its best finish to date in the FIM Superbike World Championship (WSBK) series during the only US round at Laguna Seca in Salinas, Calif., this past weekend. In an exciting twist, the wild card entry of Larry Pegram running the #72 Foremost Insurance/EBR/AMSOIL/Hero entry garnered a 14th place finish in the second race, earning the first-ever WSBK points for an American motorcycle manufacturer. [In actuality, Pegram's EBR crossed the line in 16th place. However, the two Bimota BB3 entries who finished eighth and ninth with riders Ayrton Badovini and Christian Iddon, respectively, have had their finishes nullified all season because Bimota has not met the FIM's homologation requirements.Fri, 17 Jan 2014 00:00:00 -0800
The International Motorcycling Federation is considering modifying its homologation requirements for the World Superbike Championship following Bimota‘s somewhat surprising plans to re-enter the series. Under current regulations, manufacturers must produce a minimum number of motorcycles for it to be eligible to compete in the production-based WSBK championship. The official regulations currently require a minimum of 125 units produced for an initial homologation inspection, 500 units produced by June 30 of the current year, 1,000 units by the end of the current year and 2,000 units by the end of the following year.Wed, 11 Feb 2009 00:00:00 -0800
