Hi Tritwin, the space is the same between the wheel and fender because I used the standard bridge to mount the fender.
It looks a bigger gap because the alloy fender is narrower than the standard one.
Here is Henry's with a standard fender



Here is mine with alloy fender



Here is the difference between the two fenders,

Hi Simon, the mudguards were quite easy to fit.
The rear I cut to the length I wanted, then marked and drilled it to fit to the 4 rubber mountings that the original fixed to. I had to make spacers to go between the frame and the mudguard to make it fit right, and then used bolts with penny washers from underneath the fix it.



The front one I cut to length, re-drilled the original bridge on the centre line and tapped the holes. I used 2 bolts instead of the 4 originals, as they were quite close to the edge of the mudguard with it being about 1" narrower.

thanks for the close-ups gumpt100...I have been meaning to get some sort of fender back on my rear...I installed an FEK but there's just too much back spray when I get on the wet dirt. I'll have to figure out how to get one to fit with some modifications to the FEK's taillight.

Hi,

Possible new scrambler owner here. Since the engine on my bike puked a few weeks ago i've been looking for a replacement and want to try something new. I had a Kawasaki Versys which was a 6 speed. I do a lot of highway riding since that primarily how I get to work. Can anyone tell me at what rpm does the scrambler cruise at 80 mph?

Thanks
Arek

The older Scrams didn't come with a tach and I have never really felt the need for one. Not sure what rpm you will get at 80 mph, but the motor will be comfortable at that speed even if you are getting the full wind blast on this naked bike. A fly screen helps smooth out the airflow and looks OK on the bike.

Great, thanks for the advice. I might stop by the dealer this weekend and try one on for size

Typically, i see about 4000 rpms at 70mph and just under 5000 rpms at 80mph, youre right in this bikes sweet spot at those speeds and still have plenty to hit the ton and just a hair above.

I think I'm going to have them rebalanced and see if it fixes it.

Speaking from experience, having had mud caked under that front fender so badly that the bike would not move, more space is good!

Luggage sale

Just wanted to point out that I put my Ventura luggage system (complete) and OEM tank bag up in the flea market. They are in good shape and want to be used on your bike, buy them! Cheers
