2001 Buell S3 Thunderbolt


Beauty and a beast


Rocker box leak, new style metal seal kit fix.

Fuel injector plugged, probably due to lack of fuel filter change.

General Comments:

- Loud and obnoxious if you are not careful.

- Loves to cruise on the highway with lots of power to pass mostly anyone.

- Handles awesome; surprising for something out of Milwaukee.

- Ride it hard every time with no issues.

- Like any motorcycle it requires regular maintenance and attention to perform at its best.

- It's hard to beat a motorcycle with a real heart beat you can feel.

- Eric Buell is a real motorcycle engineer.

- If you ride motorcycles, you are missing out if you have never ridden one.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
