I appreciate any honest opinions and wont begrudge anyone for their opinion.
Thanks!
My 08 EFI throttles impeccably from the get go - no stumbles or snatching anywhere. Always has done - with the original stock mufflers (too quiet) from new, then later with TORs retrofitted (with Triumph's TOR tune downloaded to ECU). No dramas - ran impeccably, changed mufflers and flashed ECU, ran impeccably.
Can't fault it. No induction or exhaust modifications (except the swapping to TORs) on mine.
The TORs noticably improved (over stock mufflers) acceleration in top end of speed range. e.g. time from 90mph to 100mph noticably shorter. And they're on the 'top' list of best sounds in the world!!
In short - I'm delighted with my EFI.

Question

I'm only on page 443, but catching up fast so forgive me if this has been asked already (I trued searching but nothing turned up). As my Scrambler owning days are a way off yet, does anyone know of any scale models available, nothing helps me save better then looking at a small version sitting on my desk. Plus there's a few (make that a lot) of tweaks I'd like to try to get my Scram looking the way I can see it in my mind's eye so I figure it'd be far cheaper to try colours etc in scale than on the real thing.

So does anyone know of a scale Scrambler (failing that a Bonnie would do).


And now back to 2009, who said time travel was impossible?

Zard exhaust

How many of you guys with scramblers have the Zard exhaust that goes under the frame like the hammarhead scrambler? How loud is it and is it bareable on long trips?

Without the "db killer" installed, it is VERY loud at high revs.
It sounds absolutely glorious.

With the db killer in, it's quiet and has an intermittent high pitched "chirp", that I found annoying...
I shortened the db killer about 1,1/2" - 2", and cut out the little bar that goes across the inside of the insert.

Now it sounds nice. Maybe a bit louder than is "politically correct", but not loud enough to piss off my neighbors.

Great post! On my HT racks I had the same experience with the rattling. I experimented with wrapping the racks themselves a few times with electrician's tape and found that this solved my rattling problem. For what it's worth!
