We have a Buell; and no. We haven't found any shops that have enough knowledge to work on it.

He needs someone that can read them and interpret them.

I have a Buell but sadly I lost the comm cable to connect Buells to my laptop.

I think this is what you want.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Buell-ECM-Sp...3a9985&vxp=mtr


This is the cable that connects your Buell motorcycle to your computer!

Fine tune your Buell to run it's best!
Customize fuel mapping!
Run Diagnostics and reset trouble codes!
Don't let the dealer charge you $60 or more to reset your TPS; do it yourself in under 5 minutes!
Reset APV!
Turn your existing ECM into a Race or Custom ECM without replacing/adding equipment and spending $200 or more!
No need for the expensive Power Commander!
Run and view settings in real time!

Motorcycles Unlimited has always taken care of my Buell those few times I've had issues.

What year is your Buell. I have the complete manual for my 08. I could probably reerence the size when i get home.

Here's a link to the manual for an 05 firebolt but the clutch information should be the same.

Maybe someone in here can chime in with the link im referring to but there is a website that shows you how to make a wire to bridge the connection where your code reader plugs in and then read the codes, No plug necesary.
