If I was you I would try & get the stock mufflers from the dealer, I talked to a exhaust guy about making the TOR's softer, could not be done however he could make the standard mufflers louder.

Hope this is of some help, cheers Terry
Cheers Terry. I didn't think the TORs were too loud until I found out what they were and they were not road legal, now I notice them!

Anyway, phoned the dealer up today and the nice sales lady said I could have the originals when I call in for first service next Saturday. So maybe I could have one of each silencer on and halve the noise ;-)

By the way, noticed today that the headlight lens had a milky appearance. I took it off and there was a sort of white deposit on the inside of the glass, I was able to remove most of it by poking a soft cloth inside the headlight bulb opening. I wonder if anyone else has had this?

Nice bike! Now someone else gets to answer the billion PM's about the Mods!

I miss her already but know she went to a good home.

I went the other direction, Snow Dawg is light one G450x today.

PNW Scrambler Rider

Looks awesome Max. Where did you go? I'm a PNW scrambler rider as well.







[QUOTE=Maxacceleration;19461189]Scrambling around on one lane pavement...


Which leads to 40 miles of dirt road...


Which in turn leads to the bar and bloody marys.


Over four days & 600 miles...
Gotta love it.

I'm riding my Scrambler from Virginia out to Petaluma California on Sunday! Be out there for a few months doing some work.

Plan on adding some dirt routes to my trip. Pics will be coming soon!

When I was running the stock high pipes, I found the Norman Hyde Scrambler silencers a great compromise between stock and TOR's. A very traditional Toga look and sound. Removable baffles. Downside is no heat guard for passengers.

I am in Wenatchee. That particular ride was mid ride of a 600 miler, from Winthrop Wa to Conconully Wa. Cool back route.

There is lots of good riding out from Petaluma in all directions.
Google Kings Ridge road and treat yourself to a backroad wonder!
Or Bolinas-Fairfax rd along with Mt Tamalpias! ...Among others.
Do it!
All pavement but you won't be disappointed.
Enjoy Petaluma (my family lives there).

Eek Skid plate and crash bars??? fit????

Help -
I have searched, read, and looked at pictures and I still have a problem......

I am wondering if The factory skid plate fits with the engine crash bars.

Some say yes, some say they have problems and then there are the pictures.

Do they fit together?
Problems? Successes? Failures?

Thanks,
Sno Dawg

Sun vs Excel Rims

I'm wanting to get either Sun Rims or Excel Rims for my 07 Scrambler.
I've searched this topic but can't find a comparison between the two,
Anyone have an opinion?
Thanks

Yes they fit. They can be tight as far as touching each other and possibly causing a rattle.

Ford vs Chevy! Both good rims. Sun has been around a long time.
I don't believe Excels come in black for our bike size.
They have to be powdercoated before the build.
You can't go wrong with either.

Should I use the original hubs or replace?

Bella Course has Talon hubs for a sweet upgrade. Supposedly light, but pricey of course.

What I have done in the past is cut all the spokes out and just send the hubs in (to Buchcanans).
A little cheaper that way.

You know how it goes when you deviate from stock... Parts replacement or fit can sometimes be difficult.
When I go to aluminum rims I will use stock hubs...

Good luck with your decision and post pics!
