I lowered my Buell 1125cr (my XB9s is the "L" lowered from factory version as well), so according to Phil, it's not a sportbike any longer?

Also, I don't like any fairings I've seen for the R so far, but am totally considering this wind screen if I can find out what the hell it is...clues?

That looks to be the Sport screen from the B (NOT the supersport). I just sold mine a month or two ago. They're not made anymore, but you might get lucky on eBay. They work pretty well on the R for the highway.

R.

PS: Here's a few for comparison purposes. Just surfed eBay real quick:

Thanks FBJ.

Just submitted an offer on the 2nd one. I really like the way this looks.

I bought a D for the mid controls and I'm glad I did, it's way more comfortable on long trips. I put a big ass windscreen to go to Sturgis and it saved my neck from seizing up (never go to Sturgis again though, what a dousche fest!). Then I lowered it an inch all around which absolutely screwed the handling. It also made me slow down and take my time.
Yeah if I buy another rod at some point I'd probably raise it back up, but I'm not made of cash and have so many other projects I doubt I ever will. I still love the bike though and will continue to slap the hideous screen on for long hauls. Why? Because my bike is a reflection of me; it can't make up it's mind if form follows function or if looks is where it's at.
Either way, I'm happy, and that's the only opinion that matters to me.
