Recently bought an '09 Ulysses, my fifth Buell. Never owned an '07, but the four earlier tubers have all been pretty reliable.

I'll be watching this one.

I got an '07 Uly with 21k on it. Dropped the motor last winter to replace the rocker gaskets. Other than that, just fluids, tires and pads. Standing by with crossed fingers for story updates and lots of pics though.

I was wondering if anyone has part numbers book. I could use a gasket set, piston rings for my engine. I have the part numbers to pretty much everything for the crank with the exception of the right side bearing which needs to be sized to the crank.

Will be finishing the disassembly of the engine this long weekend and checking out the crank fit.

I've got a factory service manual for the 2006 model, but I don't know if the parts are the same in your bike.

Thanks. I've got a 2007 factory manual, but it doesn't seem to include any part numbers so I can put in my order.

Oy! Looks like I will be needing to beg borrow or steal some special tools. In particular, a crank holder, sprocket drive holder and a clutch spring holder. Pretty tough to remove some of those securing nuts without them. Also the clutch spring tool is needed to depress the spring to keep from "death or injury" as per the manual. *note: the blood on the rear cylinder wall. I'm risking my life and limb on this thing!

Bah, impact gun instead of holders and I've never heard of a clutch spring that has enough force to hurt you...the hand wringers probably put that in the book.

I have a pretty good IR 1/2" that I was going to use on the nuts, but wonder if torquing it to specs when assembling would be a good thing.

They never do on the chopper shows.


Seriously, I do this stuff all the time and give em a good thump with the gun. For what all the holders cost you could pick up a set of torque sticks for use with the impact as overtightening is the main problem.

Hastings makes a ring set for 1200cc Sportster motors. Should be able to source them from UAP or Napa or some place similar.

These were a direct replacment for earlier Tuber Buell rings. Not certain if they're different in the newer motors. Anyone know?

The crank holder can be made with a piece of bar stock. The clutch spring tool can be made with PVC pipe fittings from Home Depot or Lowe's. Search on badweb for these solutions and any more you may need.

almost the same picture I took when the bearings came in for my Willys.

No worries, Hugh provided the part numbers for the rings, only $22 a set.

Paul, will probably use an impact for the large nut and then use the hinge for the smaller crank nuts. To be continued when parts arrive....
