Hey Bruce. I first saw these on a local scrambler build and liked them immediately. I hope I don't find them as unpractical as you have. Specially imported them so have to give them a try . At least it's not a permanent mod so could always change them if they don't work for me.

Will post a few pics once my project is done. (Truth is I've been holding out on you 900 Scrambler dudes for a while). My Bonnie is nearly ready for reveal .

Sometimes that is how I Feel, Dont know if you guys seen it but for me this Scrambler has been a GS prosject.
14000 km on it, show or not it has been used hard. If this one go, another scramb will be done probably in the next year.
But that will be a stripped one, no warm holks, lights and so... Just a mean carb machine

Brand new owner here. Traded in my HD XR1200 for the Scrambler yesterday. I couldn't be more happy.

Making plans to chop her up a bit.

I expect and hope that you will be quite pleased with them. Like many things about my old Tiger, a fair bit of fettling (I think that's the right word, we don't use it hear but it seems we should) would set them right. It is certainly not the signals fault that there is too much crap in my garage and I can't squeeze by (perhap if I lost a hundred pounds or so) the longer bars. I look forward to seeing your Bonnie, get some pictures up please.

Scooting through a puddle at the Black Dog rally last weekend:



The course wasn't kind on my wimpy Velorex sidecar mounting hardward.
