Blacktiger :- Good skills mate , My next farkle now settled.

Foot dragger :- I suspect the Scram & Wee would need different styles to punt quick , the Scram will be more like your DR, no real power but surprising how quick it can be punted on a tight road, it will get a bit loose even with suspension mods but it never gets out of control. Most people don't realise how quick a big traillie can be

Sh 49 through Sierra City is Scram heaven. If you like that road , the
Scram should not disapoint you

Are you ready for endless old farts coming up & reminicing about their old Thunderbirds / Daytonas

Some are a PITA most are pretty cool.

If you can't handle that at least twice a day stick with 'Fergie' the Tractor.

I forgot to say, 25mm OD and you could get the same result with a stack of washers if you're cheap.

For those in the UK I got the bolts here.. http://www.a2stainless.co.uk/ ordered Monday evening, got them Wednesday morning, superb. Existing bolts are 35mm shank length.
The good bit is that all the other ancillaries like brake pedal and master cylinder all go with the peg because they're all mounted on the same bracket....


OK Grizz, if you want to market a kit, go ahead I won't charge royalties
BT, That is awesome. Why is it awesome? Because the most simple of ideas are often staring you in the face yet you miss them completly, speaking for myself of course! The good thing is that you can experiment with 10mm, 15mm or 20mm spacers at next to no cost until you get it just right. Good work and I promise I wont steal your patent!! Griz

49 is a great road but for the tourist/local traffic. Ive got most all of the roads figured out between Chico and the coast,lots of tight curvy pavement between here and there ,not much traffic at all if you dont mind some gravel sections and broken up pavement.
I quite liked the coastal hi way on the North Island,tight and up and down and around. I was there in 01 and want to come back and try the south island on a rented DR or some kind of backroad bomber. NZ is just an amazing place to visit,some of it reminds me of Nor Cal.
Ive talked to a guy a ways away who has an 07 Scrambler for sale,be nice to get a test ride on one and see whats what.
I like the red ones but the green would be ok for a while.

Are there likely to be any issues due to the extra leverage, 'cos 120 kilos of Fat Bastard, (me, not you) may be putting the pressure on further out ?

[quote=nofate]Has anyone tried the Kaoko throttle lock? It screws into the bar end. I'm not sure how it is activated and deactivated. I had a Vista Cruise throttle lock on my KLR and found it very handy on longer trips to relieve the numbness from my throttle hand. The Vista is a different design and is operated with a thumb lever.

I'll second the reply on the throttle lock, I use mine quite often on longer rides.

I don't know but it had occurred to me as well. It's one reason I went for the shorter Oberon pegs. Time will tell. 25mm OD has a good clamping area and I do think that two 10mm bolts should be strong enough.

Ever since they brought out the Scrambler I've been in love with it!

If I weren't saving for 'the trip' I would have already bought one... But, looking through most of this thread I can live vicariously through ya'll!

The concept of the Scrambler fits my riding needs perfectly. But I'm also in love with my KZ650 so I have laced her hubs to aluminum hoops in the same sizes as the Scramblers & can't wait to try out dual sport tires!

Okay, my apologies for the thread jack, carry on now with pictures your Scramblers!

Hey guys, this may sound like a silly question, but is there meant to be rear wheel weights on the scrambler?

I can't see any, just two black sticky marks where they should be?

If they are meant to be there, could that be a reason I'm getting front wheel wobbles at around 45mph

Cheers

You'll only need them if your wheel is out of balance so remove your wheel and check it for balance or take it into the dealer if you are not able to do this yourself. At 45mph the wheel will most likely not be rotating fast enough for any imbalance issues to surface so your "front wheel wobbles" could one or more of the following.
  • An out of round wheel eg, caused by striking the wheel on a rock.
  • Poor road surface.
  • The tyre not seated on the rim properly.
  • Poorly set-up front suspension.
  • One's imagination (believe me, it happens!)
