Hello Motorcycle enthusiasts. I have for sale a 2004 Buell Firebolt. This is one of the most torque-iest bikes I have ever ridden and it is so much fun. It has a power commander-ish mod to it giving it a whole lot of power. Hopping on this thing is like fitting into a snug glove. I am 5'11 175lbs and it will want to stand up just lightly throttling. It handles very nicely in corners and along the straight away. I have 3 different body kits. Two of which are red, but one fully wraps around the body. This is pretty rare to see on a Buell since they are typically of the naked style. I also have a blue and yellow kit which can stand out nicely on the track.
Now that I got your attention, there are a few things that need addressing. Off the bat it is going to need new tires. Second the rear brakes are going to need to be changed out soon, they currently like to squeak. Turn signals will need to be replaced. When changing out the fairings they were a little mangled. This was from the previous owner and for now they are taped up and working. The registration ran out in may of 2017, however, I have started it at least 3 times a year to keep things coated in oil.
If you have any questions, please ask. Don't waste your time with low ball offers, this is a solid bike with many extras. This was previously owned by a Buell enthusiast and took really good care of it. He didn't drop the bike and I haven't dropped the bike, so lets be civil on the negotiation, there is wiggle room on the price.

Useful information

Buying a vehicle is not just a matter of money. It also requires a good previous investigation so that they do not give cat by hare. If instead of buying a new car, you decide to buy a used one from a private individual, these are the things you should consider and check with a mechanic before:
  • Tinsmith and paint
    - Check all corners of the car for rust, dents, new paint or damaged original paint. Paint debris and uneven colors could indicate that the car has suffered a major or minor accident.
  • Windows and doors
    - Raise and lower the windows, open and close the doors, trunk and chest. If a door does not close properly, there may be a simple mismatch, or the body and chassis may be out of order.
  • Rims
    - Make sure the tires have uneven wear, which may indicate that the suspension is worn. New tires in a used car can hide a serious problem; the shock absorbers may be damaged or the wheels misaligned.
  • Shock absorbers
    - Test them by pressing each corner of the vehicle several times and release it; If it bounces more than twice, you may need new shock absorbers.
  • Engine leaks
    - Check for possible liquid leaks. If it is not due to a crack or a defective seal, a leak may indicate lack of maintenance. Check the engine oil, if the dipstick is impregnated with a blackish mud, this indicates carelessness; If there is water or foam, it is a sign that there is a crack in the engine block.
  • Trunk
    - See if there is rust in the trunk; there must be a hydraulic jack and a spare tire. Excessive wear could indicate that heavy objects have been loaded.
  • Brakes
    - Press the brake pedal; if it sinks too much or to the bottom, there is a failure in the hydraulic system. If the brakes feel spongy, it indicates that there is air in the system.
