Uly

Bike is not available..wrong information ...I got all excited for nothing. Oh well ..I'd be much better off buying used anyways. The dealer that was rumored to have a few was NatcheZtrace in Tuscumbia AL. I spoke to a salesman..he said last ones left in September.

You can buy nice low mile '08's and '09's for $6500 - $7500.

Check out badweatherbikers classified section.

Uly's a fun bike.

Thanks Lornce,

I have been prowling over there for awhile. I fooled around and let a couple get away. Seems to be a really good site for Buell folks. I will continue to search. Seems the few 2010s that are out there demand a premium price. I've heard there's only around 50 2010s in existence? '08 & '09s lots cheaper...that's where I'll look.

In regards to 2010 Ulysses models, only 96 XB12X models were produced and in the 800 to 900 ranges for the XT's (WRONG !), according to some obscure web posting, that took forever to find...

are you an MSF coach? Think I spoke briefly with John at Falls creek falls update last weekend...
I am enjoying mine - need to begin search for an oil leaks source at the swing arm/engine - leaving its mark on rear muffler clamp.
good luck finding a bike. It will show up... I like taking Greyhound to pick up bikes LOL! What a different side of life...

Still have and use my first and only cell phone, it's 9 yrs old now.

No links, just the above description, took forever googling, to finally come across it again.

Tech dinosaur...

But that's why I bought a factory hotrodded Sportster motor, in a GP frame.

My 06 Uly

I love mine, and with the drummer, K&N, comfort kit, along with some other basic farkles, it ROCKS! The sound and feel is hard to describe, all I know it's a very MANLY bike!!

Just bought an 06'

I picked up an 06' Uly last Friday without ever sitting on one. I finally got to ride it last sunday for thirty minutes and loved it. I plan on doing the chain conversion and adding 2' risers. The best part is that I bought it for $3500....

Nice buy! That's what I paid for my 06 for last Oct.

Congratulations on the new bike.

I have to ask why you would do a chain conversion? Are belts no longer available? The belt is one of the best features. My 07 has 50,000 miles of combined asphalt and dirt. I replaced the factory belt at 20k as preventative maintenance and carry it as a spare. You can change them beside the road. No noise, no lube, no adjusting. If my wife still had her wee strom it would be on it's third set of chain and sprockets.

My only issues have been 2 fans, 1 rocker box gasket (killed one of the fans) and 2 headlight bulbs, 1 ignition switch, brakes and regular maintenance.

Chain conversion

From what I have read these bikes have a history of breaking belts. The previous owner has put two belts on in three years. I run high quality (DID) chains on my other HD's in my stable and have had zero problems. Plus I am constantly tinkering (I own a machine shop) and I can change sprockets to get the desired gearing for my style of riding. I have never been stranded by a breaking chain. I look forward to riding this bike.

From the factory, the Uly ran it's belt too tight which made it prone to breaking and straining wheel and transmission output shaft bearings.

Mod the belt tensioner wheel assembly to apply less pressure to the belt (you run a machine shop, you'll figure that part out when you look at it) and your belts will hold up just fine.

Belts are much nicer that chains: Quiet, light, clean, maintenance free, efficient, etc.
