Reminds me of the Japanese owners manuals in the '70s.

I'm just kicking around some idea's for my next project. I am a little leary that the bike would be underpowered for the extra weight. I found a couple pics over in the Hacks section but no details. Also I'd like to able to seperate the two in a reasonable amount of time for solo rides.
I belive a sidecar needs at least 100 hp to compete with modern traffic.

Thumb Peg Packer will fit

I cant tell if it will fit the scram or not, something shiny to look at though.
I use the Peg Packer on my BMW and on the Scrambler. All that has to be done is take the rear peg off, save the pin. Use the pin to locate the PP bracket and that is about it. I have soft bags on Metal Mule racks and the PP does not extend out any further than the bags.

Danehead

Wandering across the South Pennine moors near Danehead:





Track diminshed to narrow trail and ended at a styal and locked gate! Had to backtrack a mile or two.

Yellow tankbag being replaced by a black City Trail I picked up s/h.

I have Garmin 660 on my Tiger and wanted to also use it to the Scram. So was looking for a suitable RAM ball mount - then I noticed the rubberised ball out of an old computer mouse (IBM I think it was) is about the same size. Drill a hole right through and use a long bolt with sleeve underneath and it does the job. I can be cheap when I need too...

Easy peasy - I like it! Thanks!

I ran my Scrambler out of gas yesterday,went on reserve at 141,ran out of gas at 164. This doesnt work out to having a gallon on reserve.
It takes 3 gallons if I fill up when it hits reserve. I leaned it way over to try and get gas out of the rt side of the tank,had no effect.
Not good range but glad I figured it out in town.
Keep an eye on those gas pumps!

Foot Dragger - Similar experience to yours: I deliberately ran mine out of fuel last year here in town, at 168 miles. There was still some fuel trapped over on the far side of the tank, and even putting the bike down on the side wouldn't slosh fuel over to where it was useful.

I'd hit reserve at around 120 - 130 miles a few times, and wanted to know how far I could go on the tank until she sputtered to a halt. Just ran around town until that happened. It's a small town and I'm never more than a few blocks from a station so it was no big deal.

Nice to know how far it goes... My old Suzuki would break 200 miles pretty easily, but it had a 5 gallon tank and no reserve. On long trips I've been known to carry a liter or two of fuel in aluminum backpacking fuel bottles. Just in case!

ChrisLX200 - great photos! I kind of like that yellow tank bag. Always did like bright colors though.

Good looking country. It could pass for "out west" here somewhere in the U.S. easily enough. Perfect Scrambler country!

I will just toss a couple MSR liter bottles of gas in my tail trunk for trips,must be 3/4 gallon or more trapped in the rt side of the tank,maybe a squeeze bulb and section of fuel line would suck it out of there and into the left side. Seems lame to not only have too small of a tank but make so much of it non useable. What do I know though?
Even my DR650 will do 220 miles with the IMS tank on it.

You get 47mpg with yours, I just did the math on mine after filling up yesterday and it was 42. I live in a city and like the throttle so I guess I am not too far off the norm.

Interesting to learn that you can't slosh the fuel over to where it needs to be - thanks for the heads up on that.

What about finding a steep ramp or just the kerb and having the front wheel up high, THEN lean it over?
