Its more to a Ohlins setup than Just the extra length. The adjustment to fit the suspension to riding style and weight. Just try the differance on the s3 Vs s3r

Anybody use the FreeSpirits rear caliper relocation bracket from New Bonneville? Were you able to install it without removing the brake line? I can't seem to make it fit. It looks like I will need to remove the line to reroute it from the master cylinder. Just moving to the top of the swingarm doesn't seem to yield enough slack to get the caliper to the mounts. Any hints? Any hints with photos(more better)?

You have to undo and reroute the line above the swingarm ( the claim that the original line fits is a marginal call from free spirits as it is a very tight fit , after hooking it all back up you must then bleed the caliper "upside down"
I'll be replacing the line later on with a slightly longer one as I think the swingarm will eventually wear the original line. I did 2500km last week so I should check it
I'll check and see if I have a pic for you...



It's a tight fit around the frame and the swing arm... so tight...my little finger will not fit between them to check for rubbing the sharp edge of the frame is probably the most concern...

That "stupid" tie together fix actually works. They are rock solid after adding the connecting tube.

I don't think he meant to insult. Pretty sure his point is that when spending that money you shouldn't have to mod it so it actually functions. As-built its pretty pointless.

It wasn't taken as an insult. He called it stupid. And yes, you're right, you shouldn't have to modify it but when you do they become really solid.

I'm moving my Scrambler into a more desert rat/hare scrambler/kind of jack pine. I'm looking for fenders, either metal or fiberglass.

Anyone deal with these folks?
http://www.pjglassfibre.com/ShowCate...Rear-Fenders-9

Any good sources for light weight metal fenders?

Any interesting, easy methods for raising the front fender a tad? I guess I could use the flat washer spacing method, but hoping for a less tacky solution.

I'm sure Clive will be back to tell you how he did his...

Yeah, that's what I had in mind for the front fender.

I didn't even notice it though. I was looking at that cool seat. I pm'ed him to find out more.

Hi there,
Custom stuff is very scarce here in South Africa, so most of the work on the Scram is fabricated.
I wanted to "lighten" the look of the back of the bike, but keep the twin silencer look.
So, the first step was to take the seat of and look see what could be done.
The two rails that run to the back of the bike, where the original seat bolted into, were cut off just behind the shock mounts.
Then a pipe was rolled to create a link between the two shortened frame rails.
Next a aluminium plate was fabricated to fit on top of the frame, a tag was welded to the front to use the same mounting as the original seat pan.
At the back a plate with two captive nuts was fastened to the base to fasten the seat pan to the bike.
The wiring and CPU/ECU had to be relocated as there was not any space for it in the original place.
We have a huge bike scrap yard in Johannesburg called "Bike Hospital" where I managed to find a old front mudguard that looked right and this was then used as the rear mudguard.
The seat pan was sent to a bloke in Pretoria who built up the foam and covered it for me.
Because I wanted to keep the rear end clean, there are no indicators at the back, but I am using bar ends, which are quite clearly visible from front and back.
The tail/brake light, I have no idea where it's from.
I can take some more pics with the seat off if any-one is intrested.
Cheers from Sunny SA
Clive
