Great looking bike! I'm curious about those bags you have on the sides... do you think metal panniers could be mounted to those? They are givi bags and rack mounts?

I'm looking for good, study, inexpensive luggage options for my 07 Scrambler - going to take it on a six-month long trip down to South America in a few months!

Cheers!

I'll buy it off you!

I was gonna buy that exact one, but had issues with my paypal at that time, so told Rhodie to sell it to next in line instead of waiting. Kinda assumed another run of em would happen; missed out .

My dealer has also built up a trick Scrambler (Maxflhx's Scrambler I believe) so they understand mods.

The manager says if I have a warranty issue I would need to remove the relocated caliper (as in they don't know about it) for warranty coverage.

Grrr...
Suggest your dealer google the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and get back to you.

I would completely understand Rhodie's part voiding the warranty on your rear disc, caliper, pads, whatever. But, if your cam cover starts leaking and they tell you the warranty is void because you used an after market part on the rear brake...



Rhodie's bracket is a very nice part. You're lucky to have scooped one up Max!

Rhodie's bracket was probably the best piece i have bought for the Scrambler, top notch part. I miss his contributions to this thread. I would not hesitate to use the bracket! Really to bad no one is making them anymore.

AUCK!!!


Glad to hear I may not have warranty issues with my oh so cool Rhodie part.
Should be on next week!

My pannier mounts are in, time to finish up the fit.
Hopefully next week.

Out of town for a few days...

Kudos DD for starting the Bible according to Scramblers. It now has a great following.

BTW. Your original post solidified my decision last year to go from Daytona to Scrambler...haven't looked back since ;)

Cheers

Indeed, a VERY high quality original post.



Anytime I google anything for the Scrambler I get results in this thread. EPIC thread.

Thanks Danger Dave!

Jetting Question

This has probably been covered somewhere in the six hundered pages, but I'm wondering if someone can tell me what jetting & number of turns they may have done on an 07 Scram with gutted stock pipes, gutted airbox (restrictor gone), unifilter, snorkle removed? I'm using the Jenks tuning guide as my main source - main jets 122, pilots 40, 1 shim. Trying to figure out the right number of turns on the idle mixture.

Thanks

Seat

If anyone is looking for an accessory seat for their Scrambler / Bonneville I have a very good deal posted in the flea market.

Best resource I know of is Ventura's posts over on Rat.net. LINK

This is cut and pasted from one of Ventura's posts.
During all of the testing and modding, my Scrambler was fitted with Zard 2:1 exhaust, but the initial results were the same as with NH after-market silencers.
It seems probable therefore that any opened-up exhaust system will give comparable results.
It was also without the AI system.
It was concluded during testing that the type of filter (stock paper or Uni) made no difference to A/F ratio, so this isn't included.
All the below adjustments were made to maintain an A/F ratio of between 13:1 and 13.7:1
This being the considered optimum.

Stock exhaust with snorkel................110 / 40 / no shims / 1.5 turns
Open exhaust + no snorkel................115 / 40 / no shims / 2.0 turns
Above + Restrictor gone....................120 / 40 / 1 shim / 1.0 turns
Above + enlarged filter inlet...............130 / 40 / no shims / 1.75 turns
Above + RHS opened up....................135 / 40 / no shims / 2.0 turns
Above + velocity stacks.....................145 / 40 / no shims / 2.5 turns
With ARK + good pod filters............. >145 / 40 / no shims / 2.5 turns
Looks like you are right on the money with 120/40/1 shim. Ventura recommended 1 turn. Should get you pretty close anyway.

Thanks, Wise. I went 1 3/4 turns and it felt pretty good, but maybe I'll drop it down and take it for another spin.

New Scrambler

Here is a picture of my new Scrambler that I picked up on Friday. Only 200 miles so far but I love it.



A big thanks to everyone who has shown so much passion for their bikes in this thread. I saw a picture of MaxAcceleration's bike a few weeks ago in the Naked Touring thread and was smitten. If we ever run into each other first round is on me. Sorry that I am going to have a clone of your bike once I get the screen and engine bars.

More pictures and questions to follow.

Bruce

Thanks for the compliment Bruce. Farkle your bike to your satisfaction.

I moved my girlfriend out of Woodland Park just three years ago. We hope to return and visit again soon, Triumph in hand.
And yes I will certainly be bought a first round.

Enjoy your new scoot!
