Joe, you owe us some pics I'd think...

The stock flywheel weighs exactly 4kg and we machined 1.2kg off and had the flywheel rebalanced. The bike revs quicker and there are also handling plus acceleration benefits, more so in the lower gears. The engine feels just as smooth at low revs and there is no disernible disadvantage in this mod. There is a German company that offers a change over flywheel service however a good machinist can do this for you so long as they pay close attention to re-scribing the timing marks in the exact same position after machining the outer surface. I am sure that I posted details and pics of this mod in an earlier post. Griz

239,- €
Polrad Gewichtsoptimierung. Wir drehen Ihr angeliefertes Polrad ab und erleichten es auf nur noch 2,8 KG. Das Urspungsgewicht beträgt gute 4 KG. Das sind satte 42% mehr. Dadurch ergibt sich ein wesentlich leichteres hochdrehen des Motors, was man wirklich sofort am Gasgriff spürt. Eine völlig neue Motordynamik ! Die theoretischen Einbußen eines schlechteren Rundlaufs im unteren Bereich sind echt zu vernachlässigen, da man es es faktisch nicht spürt. Das Polrad wird einbaufertig und perfekt gewuchtet incl. neuer Dichtung geliefert.

lighter flywheel

Thanks Roadscum, Grizz, and Keep it Simple. This sounds like a mod I need to try. D&D have 2lb lighter flywheels on the shelf, all I need to do is send them my old one. I know motion pro sells a ton of different flywheel pullers, but I didn't see one specifically for the scrambler. Do any of you guys know which one I need? Worst case I'll open her up and measure the threads, but I was hoping to minimize the downtime. It is, after all, prime riding season!

Scrambler purchase

I'm really considering buying a Scrambler this week but the dealer has 2 second-hand Scramblers. Both are from 2008 he says, one's blue/white (carb) and the other is black (EFI). I thought those 2 models weren't for sale in the same year (2008 in this case) or were they? Might as well be the first registry date, I'll have to check that this week...

Anyway.. :) My question is: what are the differences between those 2 engines considering these are 2 second hand bikes, what effect has the age on those 2 engines?

If the difference is negligible I'll probably go with the blue/white carb model which has centerstand, flyscreen, skidplate and tachograph, the black has no extra's. The color doesn't matter that much to me, like 'em both.

I'll appreciate any advice :)
Last thursday I bought the black EFI Scrambler. Thanks for all the advice on pro's and cons for both carbs and EFI. Guess I'll have to experience at some point whether I made the right or wrong choice, although I think there is no such difference between the two after reading all you feedback.

It looks like the previous owner did a bafflectomy (check pictures). I don't mind really, as it sounds good, but I wonder if it can effect the colorization of the collectors. Right now they do look kinda blue...

Bafflectomy? And a nasty one?:


Colorization:


Here's my Scrambler, I hoped to show you a picture with sunshine and big sky country in the background... But I live in a part of Belgium where we only have rain and concrete:

Colorization

Don't worry too much about the pipes turning blue, they are single wall pipes so 'They all do that!', would be an appropriate quote. The street bikes that you see with shiney chrome right up to the head have double wall exhaust pipes, they still turn blue, you just can't see it inside there. Enjoy your Scrambler, the absolute best advice that I have heard is to "change the fuel regularly"!

Welkom WFK!

Gefeliciteerd met je keuze voor de scrambler EFI.
Je zal er veel plezier aan beleven.
De 'bafflectomy' is iets wat veel gedaan werd bij de carburatorversies waar dan ook het mengsel diende aangepast te worden (grotere sproeiers). Bij de EFI een andere mapping anders draait de motor te arm en daardoor te heet.
Zelf heb ik voor op mijn scrambler EFI shotgunpijpjes laten maken die passen op de originele voorbochten.
Maken een super geluid, wegen 6,5kg minder tov de grote originele dempers en ogen ook zeer mooi.
Omdat er links en rechts wat vraag achter was heb ik een serietje laten maken.
Kosten 80EUR. Moest je geInteresseerd zijn stuur via PM je mailadres dan kan ik je foto's ervan sturen.

Good thing you got a bike that also looks great in rain and surrounded by concrete!

Shotgunpijpjes, -6,5kg, Vlaanderen ..... I think we know each other from another forum (TVF)

Took the bike down to the Outer Banks this weekend. First long distance trip I've done with the bike, 800 miles total. Biggest thing I've learned was that I need to figure out a better way of strapping things down. I sacrificed my travel pillow to the road gods. Second thing was to always bring rain gear...
