Check out my youtube channel for more examples. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IkOPZE3cAE
A glorious example of "crazy mother f#<^er syndrome"

Or then again, "Stubborn Scrambler Owner Syndrome"!!!

Nice going Blacktiger, I'll have to pop in next time I'm over your way to take your temperature!!!

Silly question of the day: How do you guys (and gals) keep the mud off your oil cooler?

I've got a fender extension... and I had installed a metal mesh to protect the oil cooler from rocks... But seems like mud always makes it way in there (and it's a pain to clean).

-

I guess I'll have to extend the skip plate in the front...

Nice! I love the Scrambler video's comming out lately, makes it easyier for me to choose one when i do buy my next bike since i dont think i'll be able to test drive one befor buying and i dont know anyone who has even ridden one personally.
It really is my original choice for a dualsport but there are alot of other tempting bikes out there these days.

Yes you need to extend the skid plate. This was my first attempt...


Or you can make yourself a stone guard plate that runs up high enough to catch the mud....


From the side view you can see the overlap between the extended bashplate and the extra mudflap is going to catch everything coming off the tyre...

It's even gotten better.
The suspension upgrade made all the difference.

The solution I'm planning is the oil cooler removal kit.
You gain weight and a much more cleaner appearance.
