I know they're known for electrical problems, just keep in mind Buell's aren't the most reliable bikes out there.

is it still possible to get user manuals or parts from Buell or is that why their popularity has died significantly?

You can try, if not, im sure something can be found online. Depending on how old of a Buell it is, you might be lucky.

Which buell do you need it for?

Electrical problems being one of the bigger issues but what else are some problems buell owners encounter?

I've heard the 1125 can give you fits with the clutch fading and develop oil leaks...

not to mention the electricals noted above..

My 1125r (2009) has needed a clutch slave actuator (that I replaced w a EBR one at 1/2 cost of H-D), and a simple electrical relay. Other than that, she runs aces.

PS... a bit of additional information - did you know that the bearing fits the Italian Vespa Scooter's rear wheel?
how long did it take for it to be shipped in?
