Quite similar to what you have done bt.
Where you have hex heads, I have done rubber, which did deteriorate by the end of my 1500 mile trip.
While it lasted... Silent centerstand!
I am searching down derlin plastic now for the replacement, which I will carve in a 'U' configuration as the rubber is, shown below.
Derlin is used in chain guides on swingarms on dirtbikes.
I hope derlin has the durability for the centerstand to vibrate against the boss on the frame.

Still looking for an easy (way) out.

Easy outs .... Hmmmm ... believe I have a couple in my tool box. However, the brake pivot bolt screws in from the inside of the frame. What I really need is a backwards easy out. Kind of like a ... duuuh ...case hardened, coarse threaded, metal screw. Never mind.

Pro-taper SE bars. These are 7/8'' so no need for new clamps. Also black brake res, black mirrors and 08 bonnie seat. Now I can ride! Stock I could only go about 30 minutes on the bike without pain...It was worth it.

Yep, I rermember that one because I'se the one that sells 'em! You can find them at http://www.aussiebiker.com.au/catalo...20and%20Covers and you can also order online from our shop. Disregard the freight charge because it will cost $22 to airfreight one to Hawaii and I will manually adjust the freight component after we receive the order. All prices in Aust dollars. Griz

Cool. Lots of options. Thanks folks.

DIY is appealing but I'm a lazy sod & my time is worth something .

So for just 50 bucks or whatever I can save a trip to town and also my hacksawing time and effort and just get a nice compact sturdy looking thing delivered straight to the door by the postie.

Order placed Dave!

Those SE bars look like a good set up,are they the tall model? I know they come in low medium and high.
Thanks!

Undo the two 10mm bolts holding the complete brake pedal assembly on and then you'll get to it easy. You'll want to do that anyway to fit your new spacers....

Some people talked about the need for a tire repair solution for their bikes, I found this today:

http://www.advdesigns.net/adtipu.html

The nice thing is it appears you can order one package that has everything you need vs ordering bits and pieces from everywhere.

Hey fellas,
I just got back from riding my Scrambler home from western Montana. It ended up about 2200 miles. I avoided interstates at all costs and camped along the way. The Scram performed excellent it was a great experience.

Here's a few pics:


Riding through Helena National Forest was great, lots of curves.






I rode Route 12 much of the way it was built before the interstates, and now, consequently has a lot of basically ghost towns.
I rode for 50 miles at some points without seeing a single person. I felt like Mad Max or something.


Managed to avoid the fire ants and the prickly pear.


Bugs are the new black/South Dakota bugged me... I had to stop every 25 minutes at one point, just to clean my glasses so I could see. I didn't need any dinner that night either.


From South Dakota to New York, things weren't nearly as interesting. I did manage to ride along the Mississippi for most of MN/WI, so that was a nice break from the plains.


I made it home.

2008 Black and White Bonneville, going to be traded on Thursday. My new 2010 Black ( the fast colour ) Scrambler gets picked up that day. I'm going to love the Scrambler for sure. WooHoo.
