revis,

Thanks for the pictures, the new tires look great.

Do you have any straight ride side pics handy? Im interested in getting a better look at your heat shields.

The previous owner painted them, I spilled gas on mid section and my pants have rubbed some of the paint back to chrome but i think it gives it character and will touch it up if it gets bad enough. Thinking of going with zard at the end of the month.



heres a link to the video when he painted them.

Those shields look great on both bikes.

Mine are at the powdercoater's place now. I had him do my screw heads too, but I'm second guessing hat now after seeing yours. Those are easily replaceable I suppose.

Thanks for the pics. :)

Hi Scrammers

Just thought I'd upload a video clip of the Arrows 2:1 with a slash cut 2" baffle.

Nice sound, not too antisocial, but still deep enough to scare your granny!!

See what you think, its on Flickr here.

Hi Akokie

Seat was a normal Bonny seat from Fleabay 40, then I had it reupholstered for 70.

Any car upholsterer can do it.

Your chain is looking a bit 'tight' there Borderman? I may be wrong!

No not me, would love to ride a road like that but on the XR rather than the Scrambler

I know the pipes are single walled, but anyone else getting a crazy amount of blueing?

Mine are preeeety blued. Thinking of just doing some exhaust wrap, I guess. But I'm worried about it running to lean - I have an EFI model.

I know I could take it to the dealer and have them check the mapping, but any opinions on warranty on that?

Also, how hard is to change the mapping yourself?

I got a Fender Elimination Kit from Maund bolted up last night. I like it so much ( solid, very well built piece), I ordered a set of matching front signals this morning.
