Can anyone tell me if there are any differences between the '06 scrams and the later scrams other than the unpainted engine? I'm going to look at an '06 today and I want to be sure it isn't a "lesser" machine than the new ones.

Thank you very much.

Not much difference , 09 and up are fuel injected. Some folks prefer carbs, some like injection. All are great bikes.

I recently had a disagreement with a tractor-trailer while driving my new car. Damage totaled nearly 16 grand. The local Ford dealership's collision repair shop was happy to replace the damaged wheels with after-market rims and the damaged exhaust with FRPP mid-pipes and mufflers. In fact I actually saved a few bucks. Neither the shop, the insurance company nor the lender said `boo!' about it.

Because sark doesn't list where he/she is located I'll point out that 08 and onwards in the UK were efi. Fill out your profile mate then we know whether to give you mpgs in UK or US gallons and all sorts of other things that are different in our common language etc etc....

Off topic here but that was a nasty accident you had! Very lucky to walk away from that one so well, multiple strikes from a transport. Ouch. Poor car, glad you got it all sorted.

Just finished installing the AI elimination kit on my Scrambler. Smoothed out the throttle very nicely. Feels like a carb bike now v/s a snatchy Fuel Injected bike.
Also cut the baffle pipe down to the second set of holes. Sounding very nice with a distinctive rap when rolling off the throttle.

The Beach Plate

Haha, I'm such a lazy procrastinator. Had the bash plate from Beach40 for weeks now. Held off until the oil change today to fit it.

Not cheap, but since it's made to order and a solid piece of kit, thats ok by me. And at least now I know everything's better protected now...including my shiny new oil filter.

I'm not sure what the tongue on the forward mounting spacer is for. So I left it sticking up and backwards; maybe I can think of something to attach on there - maybe a bigger horn..!?!

Rubber mounting bits:





Fits snugly. Crash bars are clear etc etc




Only thing wrong with it of course is that it's too shiny & clean...

Cheers Beach

+1

Further off topic, I've always liked Mustangs, even though they're "me too" cars. "Wow, you drive a Mustang?! ME TOO!" My first car was a '95 V6 Coupe. A few years later, I bought a '70 Notchback with a 302 in it (had to sell it when I moved to DC, ) and I had a '98 coupe somewhere in there just to use as a beater for a bit. I've had my share of other cars too, including BMW's and Chevy's, but there's something about the Mustang that's attractive to me.

I really don't care too much, since it's pretty much just the handlebars, turn signals, and bar ends that I'd swap out. Right now, weather's getting nice, and I just want to , but I'm still waiting on the estimate to come through.

I must not have sent you the pictures on how to mount it My apologies!

The tongue on the forward spacer is to make it easy to hold as its a bitch to get your fingers in there.
Glad its working for you. Now go and get it dirty!

Just needs an off-road tyre on it and it'll be fine :)

Thanks!

Walking away from that is just an indication that My Lord and Savior still has something for me to do.

It was a most memorable ride...
