Windshield

I got the Dart flyscreen about a month ago and while I love it's look on the Scrambler, it doesnt do much above 40 mph. So I am looking for something that I can use to cut down the wind and noise at 70+ mph speeds.

I am 6.1".

Any suggestions guys?

National cycle deflector. Get the DX (quick remove) version --- it's ugly but works great and you can take it off when you don't expect highway miles.

Thanks Xaman. Does it do a good job of getting rid of bufetting and noise? Will it work for my height?

Thanks!

It's adjustable so you can dial it in. I am your same height, and I found what works best for me is to angle it lower (tilt it back) so as to reduce pressure from my chest but keep my helmet in clean air. The difference is substantial. 500 mile days are easily doable with the shield, but might make me cry without it.

Thanks Xaman. I was looking at the National Cycle Deflector and Street Shield EX. Your feedback helped.

Here's a photo of the 2010 Scambler I just picked up. It came with arrow exhaust, flyscreen, power plug in, lcking gas cap, and the solo/stock seat. I'm hoping to get my hands on headlight guard and skid plate soon. Unfortunately last night after only putting about 250 miles on the bike, my rear tire picked up a nail and blew my rear tire while I was going down the highway. Luckily today a shop picked the bike up on a trailer, fixed my tube, and gave me a yamaha bolt to cruise around on for a few hours while they fixed it up. The bolt was actually pretty cool, but it was no where near as fun as the scrambler. Heres a picture from tonights ride:

Tried searching for this but no luck. Can any Canadian Scrambler owners check to see if your VIN sticker or Canadian equivalent of US EPA says something to the effect that it is USA EPA compliant? I am looking at a Canadian Scrambler and want to see if it will easily be imported to the States.

Cheers!

I have to say that looks pretty great. The green/brown looks classic, and as an avowed brown-seat hater, that's a big compliment.

Questions
What size tires are you running? Obviously had to remove the front fender, any other modifications required for fitment?
How long are the shocks?
Any fork mods?

That looks great. I thought it was BRG until you said it was Tuscan.

Bashplates for the Scrambler?

Amigos,

I possess one of the awesome bashplates from Thunderbike...now "unobtainium". Yesterday it saved my engine and left side lower frame rail from damage but was heavily damaged doing so. (Sorry I am not planning to sell it.)

So today even while I try to find someone in ABQ NM to repair it, I have embarked upon a quest to find a replacement.

From Happy Trails I learned that they will have such an item "in about 60 days". Luggage racks will be out "this very month".

Talking to the fine folks @ Ricochet Offroad Armor I was able to direct them to this thread and when I showed them how many of us there are who might buy one they said they would begin R&D on one in about a week!

So if you even think you might want one PLEASE send them a short email @ dh_gibbs@comcast.net and confirm there would be a market for a "big ass bash plate".

ThanX,

Ace Cafe Rat
