Laugh A few days in Cornwall since Arrow was fitted

Had a few days riding in Cornwall recently, since fitting the Arrow.
Simply had to stop and soak up this scenery at Blue Hills on the north coast...







I put the dualseat back on to tour, as I know that the deployment bag strapped to my back for the trip down and back sits nicely on the dual, but thought it might overhang onto the gloss base under the rack on the single seat unit and scuff it.

Cheers,
BB

Just joined the club Friday. I have spent sometime in this thread but went back near beginning currently on page 165 and working forward. Thought I would read a little before I start asking a bunch of dumb questions. But I'm sure they will come at some point.







and my little poser wife.

Awesome bike, do I ever feel jealous! I've been lurking around these pages for years now, had 5 different bikes, but always keep coming back for the scrambler. Hopefully next spring!

FWIW when I looked at excel wheels they were a lot cheaper than I had expected. Quit whacking your wheel offroad lol. Lace up a 21 on front and run it all over.

No Start

Went out to ride my 2010 Scrambler EFI this morning and it cycled as normal all lights came on, but when I pushed the starter button it just clicked. It would take 15-20 seconds before it would click again but no love turning over... Any ideas?

Your battery has just dropped slightly too low. I ran in to this on my 2012, basically if the battery loses just enough juice the bike wont start. The battery is still good, probably even has enough power to run the bike as normal. They just set a really annoying limit on available battery. Hook the battery up to a charger or something, that'll set it straight.

The same happened to me, on my 2010 EFI. I bought the bike used a few months back and it only had 900 miles on it. So the battery probably didnt get much charging over the last 3 years. The first time, I put it on the battery tender jr for the night and it worked the next morning to go out around town. But when I tried to start it to come home it wouldn't. So I bump started it in 2nd gear. It ran fine home, but even after charging for several days after this it would not start. So I would continue bump starting it and riding with out any problems for a month before I bought a new battery. Just be careful to pull out your battery and read what type you have before ordering a new one. Apparently they switched battery models somewhere during that model year to a larger one, that had been on the carbed Scramblers the previous years. I accidentaly ordered that one and it doesn't fit, even with removing a plastic spacer they put in the battery case area. But it has been a month now with the new battery, a Yuasa Yt12b-bs, and have had no problems, even with lots of around town short rides with multiple starts. But I do always leave it on the battery tender between all rides when at home. About $100 for the battery I believe.

I forget the actual #'s but if the battery is less than 12.3 or 12.5 volts it won't start to protect the ECU. I don't have a volt meter but borrowed a buddies after charging up the new one and it was around 13 volts without being connected to the bike and 12.8 once hooked up with key in the ignition/start position.

Thanks all.

Went out again this afternoon and it started right up... Battery tender all the time now... Must have been because of the cold night, it dropped into the 60's...

Nice pics Boola
What do you think of your Arrows? Are you happy with it? Not to noisy?
Is there a huge weight difference?
