However, I have started the bike and let it idle for a minute, to hear how the pipes sound. I notice what appears to be too much smoke coming out of the exhaust. Also, once I shut it down, the pipes will keep releasing an obvious amount of smoke for a few seconds. Is this because the AI has been removed? Any thoughts?

Gracias!
Nothing to do with the AI, most likely some oil/grease residue inside the pipes. I wouldn't worry about damaging anything, these things are bulletproof. Go for a ride and see if the smoke persists after getting everything up to a normal operating temperature.

I'm about 100pages delinquent on the thread but saw shinings post last page and had to throw mine in the pot. I still have quite a few mods to do before reaching a "final" (is that possible?) state - but the mohave exhaust is great!

Randy, they're really not that loud and at 6.6 lbs weight they're a no brainer! Lake Henshaw from the east grade road of Palomar Mtn, CA.

Looks like we have three Scrambler owners here in San Diego! We need to get out on a ride! Goat_locker and I have talked about it. PM us Snake Plissken if you're interested. FYI, I also signed up to to go on this San Diego Adventure Rider Hijinks ride on May 5 and 6:

Routing could be better.

Nice... where can I get that relocation kit??

This one made by Rhodie, was from a small run and probably gone.
Someone else is now making them although I would have to go back through this thread to find the maker.

I love the look of those pipes. I could not find a price on their website ? Do they have a removable baffle?



I'm looking to swap my D&D's ,which are for sale over in the flea market, for something with a more classic look and a little quieter. Any ideas? I have been looking at Norman Hyde Togas.

Same here. I finally found them after Shining posted the link to MassMoto but I didn't see pricing or ordering information listed.

Currently it's between these and the Zard Cross, based strictly on styling points. Would like to hear each but that's unlikely to happen and I've completely given up on youtube sound clips telling me anything at all.

So, Snake, where did you get these and about how much are they?

Of course, I don't even own a Scrambler at the moment but I have been itching for a bike project of some level for over a year now. I haven't bought a new bike in quite a number of years so I can ALMOST justify it. Besides, with the hurdles I've endured recently I deserve to treat myself.

I've had all sorts of ideas flittering about my head for a while now, then I stumbled upon the Hammarhead Jackpine video a while back and it just grabbed me like nothing else had. I believe that this bike really fits all of the random "needs" and "wants" that had been growing in my mind as my taste has changed over time. Still haven't decided to turn loose of the money, but if I do happen upon a nice used model for the right price it very well may end up being added to the stable. I've been obsessing about this for a while and researching is my outlet until I stumble upon one. Pretty much have my general "build plan" fairly mapped out. Just need to decide on particulars and find a bike, and a bag of money to throw at it.

Just a Heads up

Hey Folks, Just wanted to give you a heads up.
A number of weeks ago I ordered and Renntec Rack from the USA distributor, REVs Performance LLC. The fellow Russell who seems to run the shop said it would be a couple of weeks to get the rack to me here in Canada. Well 4 or 5 weeks later he is not answering his email and his phone is no longer taking messages. I contacted Renntec and they shared that they as well are having troubles contacting Russel. Not real sure what is going on and I hope everything is OK with him but it is most frustrating. If anyone lives near
"REVs Performance LLC
65 W Sycamore Ct
Covington, GA 30016-4498
USA"
maybe you could stop in and see what is going on and get back to us.
Just to let ya know.
Jim
