Zard

My Scrambler is an '06 with carburetors. I'm not sure if re-jetting will be required, but I expect that some adjustment will be necessary.

I directed the same question to Annitori Distributing (the Zard distributors, I purchased the pipe from them), who are doing a bit of research for me. It seems that they also do not have any installation instructions for the low pipes and don't have answers for me without doing some "legwork". I wonder how many of the low systems they have sold.

Collected the cylinder head today and will install it tomorrow. The ports have been cleaned up and the head shaved by 1mm. I will run it on the dyno when I get the chance but will post a 'seat-of-the-pants' report in a few days. Griz

Griz, I like what you are doing with the bike. The look is just about right for me.
But I would like to know at which stage did you start losing that great little torquey bottom end?

I pulled off the snorkel & installed a K&N with the only the other non stock item being TOR exhausts.

Immediately apparent was a little loss of that nice chunky pull.
So I put the snorkel back & *presto* there it was, with a little more willingness to rev later up the range (courtesy of the freer filter I would guess).

If your total experiment have accumulated even more torque I would welcome info on how that was achieved.

cheers.

For those interested, my full ride report from Sturgis is posted here:

The Scrambler did very well and drew some nice comments from people. One guy at the campsite said he'd heard of them but had never seen one!

Not too many Scramblers sitting at the coffee shop, we'd rather ride!

A few questions for those of you that have installed these units:
1) The pipe seems to be sitting directly under and touching the rear brake psiton; is this normal or will I gain some clearance once everything is tightened? and 2) What is the stainless steel spacer used for?
The pipe does touch the rear brake piston on mine and I was concerned about it but I've done a few thousand miles since then with no actual problem.

I think the spacer went where the pipe mounts to the passenger peg bracket but I can't remember and I'm at work right now. I'll try to remember to check how mine's set up and post here later tonight.

+1.

I don't think that should have lost you anything unless you failed to rejet.

Quick question. Is the Zard 2-1 a simple bolt on system?
Thanks,

Newbie Q

I'm interested in purchasing a used Scram. I've looking at 2007's and love the Red/White color scheme. But I don't like the black engine look at all. Was that an option? In the US and I going to be able to find a bike w/o the black engine and side covers?

Thanks,

Tom

I think you may have to look for an 06 model if you don't like black engine cases. Red & white with polished alloy engine, you are obviously a discerning purchaser with exceptionally good taste.

Yep, super easy install. Took me like 15 minutes.

gk rider, We installed the head today and I'm tickled pink as my long departed father was fond of saying. As far as I can tell, there has been no loss of bottom end except that the big hit of midrange power might make it seem like there has been a loss at the bottom but I think this would only be an illusion. Although not very scientific sounding, the bike now goes like the clappers all the way though the rev range however I will back this impression up with a session on the dyno as soon as the opportunity presents. IMHO, the bike has now enough power that it would not be embarrassed in any dual-sport company.

Can't wait to see the results. You're taking the bike a nice step above.

In other news my Scrambler is back on the road after replacing a leaky fork seal. It's good to be on a bike with torque again.
