They look nice!
They are a bit loud when I stomp it but around town not bad. Of course I find no reason to crack the throttle in town. I've finally reached the age of maturity (senility?) that I don't feel the need. The legs do not burn with the shields on. The pipes added a bit more oomph in my opinion.

I can say I get A LOT of attention on this bike and people fly out of the wood works to talk my ear off about it. Got a center stand, shocks, and a Polaris bellmouth on the way for it. Bafflectomy happening next weekend. A couple of days ago I did the proper prep work and blacked out my heat shields.
I like the blacked out shields. I almost went for blacked out pipes from BC. Bennington is the weekend you will be gone. There is a British Bike rally next weekend near Oswego I've been told. I am going with the local BMW group. It is Saturday.

Tommorow I'll probably be writing a ride report on how I lost bag containing a camera and my glasses

Before anyone ask's, yes i does touch the shock but only at full compression, the angle of the pic makes it look worse.

Nice tool pouch!

Cheers guys, happy to report it fits my wet weather gear and held up today no worries.

At the bike show today was a mono shock bonnie (apologies in advanced for the picture quality)




Called into Deus for lunch on the way home and parked next to a jack pine style scrambler-
(And a pair of XR1000 street trackers)

Spent last week in Arkansas. What a lovely place to ride! I was especially impressed by the lack of traffic, compared to east Texas.

Found some cool spots to picnic:








The Scrambler performed admirably, a little over 2k miles total. Used up almost half of my new rear tire, but it was well worth it.

Clutch cover roller Bearing

I'm powder coating my scramblers clutch cover (and other parts). Thought I would also replace the 3 roller bearings inside after(one for gear shifter, 2 for clutch mechanism). Local dealer states the bearings can't be pulled with out damaging the clutch cover. They also say the oven temperature or the residue from sand blasting will fail the bearings. They want me to buy new covers. I can order the bearings, so if they can sell the bearings they must be removable.

The obvious is to clean the bearings inside the cover best I can and re-use.

But;
I can't believe these bearings can't be removed. Must be a trick or special tool.
Does any inmate know?

Entertaining Scrambler commercial. Is that the stock headlight? It looks like it works better than mine.

Hi Tom,

That's just the regular iphone5 camera. I didn't even know it did panorama shots till this trip. That little swimming hole was worth a good picture.

I don't want to take us into the weeds about photography, but that is really a nice pic. I've got a Sony SLR and little Panasonic that will do panos for me - built in software stitches the photos together vs taking a series and using Photoshop or something else to make one. No wonder digital camera sales are being hurt by smart phones doubling as decent cameras. Keep taking those, their great!
