Yes I reflashed the ecm. Kinda have to when customizing the exhaust. Randy did it for free. Comfort kit? Love this bike! So fun to ride. Fun watching some people trying to figure out what it is. Think I'm gonna get some axel sliders next.

I've always wondered why Buell went those huge jass rotors in the front, is there an advantage, I don't see any other bikes on the road with those huge jass things?

Thanks for the compliments! Pictures kinda oId, did a tail chop and got Buell select seat (Love it). Not sure why front brake rotor is so big. Stops on a dime though. I'll have to post updated pictures.

I believe it was because the larger rotor dissipates heat better.

I still dig those XBs.
Nice ride Sickee!
