From what I read those jets would be a good place to start, but you will have to do a plug reading or two to make sure you are not running too rich or lean. Be mindful of the altitude you are working at.

Putting it back together is even easier as you don't have to worry about all those stupid hoses

Took me about 40 minutes to remove the AI but I was taking my time. 30 minutes of that was removing it, putting things back together was much easier, like "The Jerk" said. Anyways, here's a bad phone piccie of everything that should get removed. Much cleaner now and the plugs are more easily accessible.

Took the Scrambler out on a 700k ride this weekend through a winterish SE Australia.

I took a few pix.



Rode to my MC clubs awards nights Canberra to Kandos. Had the Scram dialed in at about 130kph for a fair bit of the way - it was a tar trip.

I had 2 ST's for company a Triumph - George pictured.

And Rob on this weird bike ...also an ST

We stopped for a beer in Sofala.

Tell me which is the pretty one?

I have been having fun looking at these pics and different owner renditions of it.
I just bought a new Wee after having a KLR for a year and LOVE the WEE....BUT....nothing says MOTORCYCLE....more than the scrambler!
A modern, timeless classic....such a sweet, sweet bike!
All...enjoy your ride!

3 state Saturday

Hit 3 states yesterdayw/ about 20 friends from work. The whole ride was on asphalt but still was quite fun. Ohio, West Virginia, & Kentucky. Did some high speed 4 lane highway cruising and the Scrambler handled it quite well. Was glad to have the added power & speed of the blue & white version.
