What did you lube it with? I've tried: PB Lube, general purpose grease and motor oil. Still get squealing right at 35 MPH when it's around freezing temps.

There are specific speedo cable lubes, graphite with a carrier, available at auto supply stores. Regular cable lube is NOT designed for rotating cables like speedo and tach cables.

Crash bar tubes

Does anybody have information on how to install one of these extension tubes on the Scrambler crash bars? This was Rhodie's setup.

Got one of my new tires on!





It's a Shinko SR241 3.50-19. Clears everything and works way better on gravel than the Conti Trail Attacks I had on for my Alaska/Inuvik trip. Pavement traction is pretty poor, though.

Motoblag screwed with this post 02-06-2012 at 08:11 AM Reason: Wrong previous tire

They look good.

You might want to run them / scruff them up more for better pavement traction.

Nice tires Motoblag. Shinko is the only mfg who does proper sizes for mid 60's Triumph/BSA bike other than the Dunlop Gold Seals (K70's).
They look good although our Scrambler is probably kinda heavy for them.

Tvscum, I believe originally the strengthening cross member mod was done with a solid piece with machined ends to fit over the stock crash bars.
I think if I was to do it I would use a hollow piece over the crash bars and a tight fitting through bolt/nut cranked down through each with loctite.

I would say that they are. I didn't have them on my scram, but I did have them on my GSPD before I sold it. Never got to test them in the dirt, but they looked good and were way better (on that bike) than the T 63's I had on it previously.

I have one front and two rear Heidenaus ready to go on my bike.
They have a good reputation, although maybe not as good as TKC's off pavement.
I am not taking my bike off pavement as much as I used to, thus the Heidenaus.
I say go for it.
... And that Raisch bike (?) looks beyond belief!

Alternative screen

The oem screen dont fit, since it is 2 clocks on my '11 Scrambler. So I mounted the Dartscreen instead.
Does anybody know of a alternative to the Dart that is a little smaller? I liked the look of the oem better
since the lamp is more visible.

Need help, rough idle

2008 with carbs. Put Arrow two into one exhaust on. Changed from 110 to 115 jets. Bike runs strong from just off idle all the way up but has a rough idle with some popping and wheezing at low RPM. Idle mixture changes don't seem to make much difference except going lean seems to make it worse. Anyone else had this symptom after muffler and jet changes? What to do?
