Breaking in

First Hi I've been lurking around this thread long enough to decide on a Scram. Picked one up last Wednesday. So far it's living up to your posts and my expectations. It may even make me healthier. Friday I came out of the grocery to find a guy looking over the bike. "It looks great. How old is it ?" he asked. I told him it was brand new and then listened to him tell me about all the bikes he'd owned since the 60's. I don't see getting pizza rolls out of the parking lot still frozen much less home. Fresh fruits and veggies here I come.

I don't want to start an argument or a theoretical discussion, but buying new reminded me of the how do you break in a new bike so ----
If you bought your Scram (or any other bike I guess) how did you ride it for the first few hundred miles and how did that work out ? Just curious.

Picked these up at a garage sale for $20 with some vetter bags:



Plan is to cut off all of the unneeded brackets and build some kind of pannier brackets to keep a couple soft bags off the exhaust. I was going to buy a couple universal loops from TouraTech but they have been out of stock for a while.

I remember seeing a post here where someone built some racks from scratch but I could not find it. I wonder if supporting these from a bracket under the seat and from the passenger pegs will be enough? I might also fab up a tube between the two racks to make them rigid. Might even mount a couple Pelican boxs to them on longer trips if they seem strong enough

Now you've gone and done it.

Ride the bike the way you would normally. Though I do not recommend attempting a salt flat speed run. Until the bike has a few hundred miles.

Couple oil changes under 1k, vary the throttle and follow the manual on RPM's.

I've done the Motoman break in on a couple of bikes but with my $10k+ bikes I tend to be tender

Did the moto man break in on most recent bike. I believe it helps in some ways, obviously rings seat well, but it also seems to have very little engine 'harmonics'.

Mines a 650 Versys and there's virtually no vibrations. Maybe a little bit about 5k rpm, but that seems dependent on how hot or cold the weather is.

I'm a believer.

Cheers

so im thinking about buying a scrambler... again.

i had a red and white scrambler when they were first re-introduced.
then sold it blah blah.

now i see that there is some good aftermarket support for the bike (so it seems from the pictures you guys are throwing up).


1. wondering if anyone has made a large capacity tank yet ?
2. can anyone point me to a "i rode to south america on a scrambler" ride report ?
3. i would LOVE to see a stream of pictures with dirty, dirt focused, knobby tired, highly modified scramblers.. if you guys could conjure them up.

thanks .

What size works well on scramblers? Going to be doing some moto camping and 2-3 day trips with a pair of ortlieb dry bags but would like one ammo can. Want to get an ammo can and fit to an MC Resources Mount - where online have people bought these from? I don't want to run around to every army surplus shop trying to locate what I need... Appreciate the help, thanks.

I'm thinking about picking up one of these: http://www.ba-moto.com/store/product...boxes-brackets

Also some good reading: http://www.baggersmag.com/events/100...des_slab_city/

Do a search for "raise the dust" there are 4 Scramblers doing pretty hard work on the dirt.

Still cant believe I got this 06 with 2300 miles on her. Ive put 1000 miles on her in two weeks and its my first bike!!!! I pulled the snorkel and really feel like I can tell the difference but there is a bit more induction noise. The AI has also been plugged but those headers are dark blue at this point. Heres a couple from the perfect riding weather weekend. Lake Ontario, Taughannock Falls, and Cayuga Lake Wine Trail. Hey if I do a baffelectomy with the AI and Snorkel off will I have to rejet??
