Couple of vids with scrams that have them. I believe the website is raisch.de. It's in German but you can copy/paste into google translate for a loose understanding. The owner speaks a bit of English so calling/emailing them isn't a problem. I believe they run about the equivalent of $120 USD. The only reason I know all this is that my friend has them on his scram here in NJ
Thanks for the info and the link. Looking into them. They sound good.

Spent the winter bolting stuff on to it


I love riding gravel roads and forest access roads. But I ride the bike 95 km a day to commute for work. I fine the Continentals are the right tire for me and made it the bike I hoped for.


Needless to say for what I am doing this is the prefect bike for me.
Very nice! What handguards are you running?

Hi. New member here. Mo from New Zealand. I had heard that there was an epic Scrambler thread here. Wow, 1200 pages. I have just bought a 2007 Scrambler. Green with TOR,S. A bit of light reading to do by the look of it.

Oh yes, they go right on in about a minute, no modification.

I bought some over a year ago and cannot praise them enough! Pricey (but I'm a cheapskate) but WELL WORTH IT!

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:
Beautiful bike. Has the suspension been modified? It looks 'taller'.

I know, I know. BUT, I just got back from overseas, and my wife is still deployed. She finally saw the bike after I finished it (her first time seeing a Scrambler), and she hates it. She asks where is she supposed to ride? She wants me to look at something like what I had before. I had a RoadKing Classic, and will probably look at Street Glides this time.

Anyways, my loss could be someone's gain if they are looking for a sweet, basically brand new Scrambler, as it has under 180 miles on it right now.

I've spent about 17 grand on her all said and done, but I know that you never get that back on a bike.

I am not officially posting her for sale yet, but I thought I would ask your guys opinion on here. I'm thinking about asking 14,500. What do you think?

Here is one crappy iPhone picture. If I do list it on here, I will get my buddy with his fancy camera to take some good pics.



Here are the goodies it has:

Wheels (Excel rims, Talon hubs and spokes) all black w. mangnesium hubs
Zard Cross Exhaust
Progressive 970 shocks w/ piggyback resevior
Custom paint w/ vintage Triumph hand painted logo
Thruxton gel seat
British Customs Airbox Removal Kit
Joker mirrors w/ metric adapters
MAS rear fender
MAS front fender
ASV F3 Sport series shorty levers
Continental TKC80 tires, front and rear
Black Powdercoating on most shiny parts
Ceramic coating of exhaust
Airtech fiberglass side covers
Skid plate
RaceTech .85 progressive front spring
YSS Emulators
Black front brake resevior
Headlamp grill
British Customs Retro turn signals, black
LED Rear taillight
Joker ignition relocation bracket
Renthal Vintage/Desert handlebars
Aluminum Headlight brackets
Aluminum folding shifter
Rear turn signal relocation brackets
AI removal
Oury grips


It would also come with every stock part I took off, as I still have them all.

Thoughts?
Beautiful bike, well done. Could you share the details on the wheels? Builder and price?

Thanks. I'd like to mount some up before cold weather hits. Must remember I live in Nevada though and not Alaska so it won't be snowing in a couple weeks.

Thanks!
The handguards are BarkBusters with the Storm plastic guards. One of the guys at my (somewhat) local shop, Dual Sport Plus has a Scrambler and recommended them to me. They are actually the model for the Suzuki V-Strom 650, part #BB.BHG46.2.ST (BB.BHG46.2 for just the bar and mounting hardware)

I was super happy that he knew which ones would fit. I had to drill out the bars but after that they bolted up nice. Lots of space for the controls.

Nice to see a shiny color on the Scrambler. Not sure I care for the silver sidecovers.

One of these days I am going to paint mine Caspian blue and silver using the same layout on the tank. I already have the paint , Just need a week that I can live without my Scrambler.

I would think one of those well-padded seats from seatconcepts would do the trick, but maybe not for really long 2-up rides....guess you gotta do what ya gotta do, but the problem with farkles is not everybody digs the same stuff...good luck !

Photo of my 06, I think the paint is better to follow these lines rather than the bike in the photo (like the SE but different colour) IMHO of course
