I added a little "bling" to mine today. I'm not usually superstitous but with three close calls with deer in the last month I need all the help I can get:





Yeah , I know its a crappy pic. That seems to be the only kind I take.

Nice! May I ask what seat you have on your Scram? And, do you find it comfortable for long rides?

Those alloy wheels any info?




I reckon a blacked out pair would be the business.

If you put the long end of this into the 'raised hole' on the outside of the rotary-cam at the base of the shock, you will be able to turn it to adjust the pre-load.

Sadly I have no hex key under that panel :s
I'll have to check with my local vendor

You could sick anything in the cam hole - as long as it's snug, and can lever the cam 'round to different sttings - improvise !

Hi, if you are asking about the seat on MY bike, it's the current Bonneville SE seat, not too padded, but dosn't dig in to the underside of your legs, like the standard Scrambler 'ironing board'. I can endure it for longer.

Oops, yes was asking about your seat. I'm one of the few people I think who doesn't find the stock Scrambler seat all that uncomfortable (now that it's broken in a bit) but the "look" could be better. I rather like the look of the Bonneville seat on yours. Thanks.

davorallyfan,

Those are Carrozzerias for a Bonneville. Had to go with a 18 inch front. I think now all their fronts are 17. I didn't want to have to deal with tubes and most of my "off road riding" is gravel forest roads.

Suggest a Phillips, not a flat blade.

I'm an IT guy and I must say my collection of tools is very limited.. luckily I found some tool I got with my Ikea furnature and used that to adjust the suspension.

I must say that there isn't that much info about riding 2 up on a scrambler.. and if you just want to cruise then he does his job just fine!
