Oh BTW, in my experience, companies outside the US do a MUCH better job of delivering product.
US = backorder!

Hey blacktiger, did you make up the mudflap or is that an off-the-shelf item? Also, are the engine bars Triumph or someone else's?

On your fork oil change you did blacktiger, could you give me the weight & height again (or page #)?
I will go your route first and see if I need to change springs
I don't recall if you swapped out your shocks also.
Did your set-up have a good balance if you did both?
7.5W oil at 140mm is the fork setting that I use. I did change shocks to Hagon Nitro and they work fine. With both done the bike is much more pleasant to ride. You don't notice the forks any more because they're absorbing the bumps. The shocks just work a lot better than the OE shocks and the Hagons have damping adjustment so you adjust them to suit the load and terrain.

Yeah I made it myself out of some plastic they use here on the railway to isolate the running rail. It's a bit too thick and stiff really but it was free so hey!

And, those are the Triumph engine bars.

Jc Whitney also has mud flaps, and cheap. I just got a set and they look durable. The $5.49 ones are what I chose.

oooh, thks for the linky max. I've been idly keeping my eyes open round town for some suitable mudflap material. But usually I forget and just go to the store for the onions and bread and milk. Those look good for the price and come with the nuts and bolts too...

You might need to trim the back one for the front - on the smallish size.
But good thick rubber.

I was thinking that Harley riders will let you park in amongst them if you fit the filly ones.

Mudflaps?!

I don't mind the mud all that much. It's the flat tyres that piss me off...

Attachment 220633

(yeah, I cut the urine cup brake resorvoir out of the picture on purpose.. I'm replacing it with a Brembo unit eventually.)

Looks like you are having lots of fun on your Scrambler Mats. How is the Zard exhaust treating you? It looks sharp!
