My new ride

09 Xb12xP I'm just starting the break in, I've got a whopping 45 miles on her and counting This thing is a blast to ride, can't wait to start racking up the miles. I had a 07 Uly and sold it to a member on this site and have been missing it ever since.. Here is a few pics.

New ride - belt drive question

Nice looking bike. How is it that the Uly's can have a belt drive without problems in gravel or dirt but everyone else feels a chain is necessary for that type of riding? I just wonder because a belt seems so trouble free compared to oiling chains every 300 miles, adjusting them etc. Plus it seems the main use I have for a center stand is for chain oiling so I could save a few pounds and dollars too. Have any Buell riders had problems with the belt when taken on forest service type roads?

The belt issue has been discussed ad-nauseum. No real issues have been reported that I'm aware of but I don't follow the XB12 news closely anymore. I do know they break sooner than some people expected after reading a bit but nothing specific to off road use. I would do a search for XB12 or Ulysses on the forum.


Nice bike enjoy!

My buddy brought one of these home last week.
I can't get over how compact it feels compared to my GSA.
Does the rear rack come with the pannier mounts?

Thanks Thanks Thanks, this one will be a keeper for sure. The rear rack came as is set up for the matching top case. For some reason the top case didn't come with the bike. The dealer ordered three P models and they came in just like mine. Looking at the Buell web site it shows the top case as part of the package, but whatever, I just can't wait for the breakin period to be over.. Its been raining here for the last 3 days straight so not much riding to speak of so far. I did get a chance to take it down some long dirt roads at speeds up to about 60 mph Man that suspension really soaks up the junk..

I can't wait to get up in the North Ga mountains, maybe next weekend woohoo!!!

Welcome to the GA Uly Club!

Nice setup! I am running soft luggage on my 07 Uly.

edit: now dump that stock exhaust and let that motor thump!!

Thanks, I might do something with the exhaust after breakin. It seems to be pretty good as is though.

What are the exhaust options for the uly? Any signifigant HP gains, lighter weight. I definatly don't want it to be any louder....

Congrats on the XP. You shouldn't have to touch a thing mechanically or exhaust wise. Was told by some folks testing them that the thing will run 164 mph out of the box. The muffler may be slightly tweaked. The top case, if I remember correctly (and I could be wrong anyway), is full of LEO stuff.
You did get screwed on one thing - you didn't get the siren .

Bad-ass bike.
badweatherbikers.com and go directly to the New Uly Owners section.
Be careful - this is a cult, there's no way out.

No siren, but everything is there to mount the beacons and a siren I figure if I ever get pulled over I'll inform the cop this is a police bike and I was told by the dealership I couldn't get in trouble for doing some speed testing
