OK! Whew! Long time since I last visited this post..

At this point my 1998 black B12 has at least 130,000 miles on it. Hard to tell exactly; I'm on my second speedo.

I went through a REPEATED motor-rebuild process in the past couple of years, trying to root-out naggy vibration issues, (turned out my JE pistons were worn after 90K on them!).

Great bike... +1 sprocket up front makes it feel like it has a Sixth gear...modified (flattened) Corbin to fit my ample beehind...JE 1216cc kit.. light headwork...Yosh RS-3 can.. Hyperpro shock, Progressive springs, Racetech kit... drag bars... Adaptiv TPX radar detector... NEP throttle lock... steel lines, wave rotors...

What's not to like? I just had it to the track in August...two years ago did 12,000 miles with it around the country in same config.

Now B12 has a baby brother: SV1000S, which fills-in for shorter, faster rides... ALSO modded with good suspension, etc.

A nice place to be
Black '98 B12S, JE 1216cc bore kit, light port work, Yosh RS3, Ivan jetting, drag bars, Corbin Gunfighter, Progressive shock, Racetech front end, stainless lines, Wave rotors, six-piston calipers, polished wheels, fender eliminator, bar-end mirrors, smoked shield, NEP throttle lock...110,000 miles as of late 2014.. two complete tear-downs. Fresh as a Daisy.
