Hello,

I just bought a Buell M2 Cyclone. I got a good deal on it and was wondering if I should keep it or sell it. Do they all shake badly at low speeds or does this one need a tune-up and a pipe? I've ridden Ducati's and they don't vibrate so badly at low speeds. I would like to sell this M2 and try to get into a XB9R maybe. Does the fuel injection help or should I stick with a Ducati or a Suzuki SV650?

Hi lyon, From what I have heard the Buells pre 2002 do shake real bad at rpms below 3000 rpm because of the motor mounts. The xb series uses a different motor mount that helps eliminate the shake. Again this is what I have heard from people I know that have owned or own pre 2002 Buells.

Well, I replaced the plugs and changed the oil. Seems that the rear cylinder was fouled pretty bad. Once I replaced the plugs, it puffed a lot of white smoke and low and behold it came to life. The really bad vibration from below 3000 was reduced to minimal and the bike has plenty of power. It really wants to lift that front tire! I am very happy with it and I think I'll keep it for a little while...
