I think you're right about it being too lean. I ran the stock can map with my Arrow for awhile and it popped a lot like that. I installed the correct map and the popping went away and IMO runs a lot better although fuel mileage suffers.

I think the Arrow requires a new tune but the Scorpion was designed from get go to be used with the stock map (which is what I have installed) - that's my understanding at least. As I say, throttle response appears to be much crisper, the only thing is the popping. It's not bad to be honest (the popping on my Husky is much worse and it runs just fine), I was just curious more than anything.

How much more does it pop, than the stock bike with original can?

Hard to say since it's been a while (Dec) since I rode the bike. It really doesn't pop too much, it was just something I noticed.

Move rock fore or aft to raise either front or back wheel off the ground. Put bike in gear, if rear, secure front tire. Bit of a struggle solo but can be done even with a heavy bike. Go slow, be careful. It works.

That is very good news that the rim did not dent! I was wondering about the strength of those wheels.

Rocks are almost always available where I am, but not everywhere else. Also I didn't want the extra weight of a center stand so I opted for the Enduro Star Trail stand. You can find it in the Vendor's section. Small and lightweight, portable.

Looks nice, I need to mount my Montana as well. Been putting this off for a while.
I have Montana wired to my http://www.fuzeblocks.com/ that I pulled off my versys before trading it in. I just used some ~.060" aluminum for the mount. I had planned and drawn it to use ~.100" but hte .060" I had was close to the right overall dimensions. It works OK but a little thicker would be better.

I was going to have someone else make this and anodize it but unless I get about 20 made it's just to expensive. So I just made it myself and painted it.

It sounds lovely now - throttle response seems to be better, more crisp. I've tried it with the baffle in and out. In it's a tad to quiet and out it's a tad too loud so I may have to drill some holes in the baffle to waken it up a little.
I added 3 extra rows and a 12mm hole in the end plate. Extra rows are the way to go though.

I was hoping you'd chime in.....

So, did you have to remove that braid stuff as well ? I could not figure out how to get the connector in there without removing the braid stuff.

And, do you have the popping ?

Cheers

First Ride

I also had my first ride of the year. A nice warm spell this Saturday, so I insured the bike for the day. Cloudy but dry skies. I was eager to try the new caribou cases and Madstad windscreen I put on over the winter. The screen is great, I will try to raise it another 1/2", but otherwise it is perfect; no turbulence, no noise, loverly. No more weight gaining mods for me, future mods will be to reduce weight, such as aftermarket exhaust and lithium battery. I woke up to fresh snow this morning, so the timing was good. Summer is coming...
Still looking for after market exhaust that don't get too hot to burn a passenger. the LV carbon seems to be an option, anybody else out there have some recommendations?

That is a nice stand! I made my own using a cast off Tripod leg. (super light)
I've used similar with my former Girlie Tiger and it worked ... but it's scary ... do be careful, the Tiger is a BIG heavy bike. Make certain both side stand and the prop stand are on stable ground. Don't bump bike too hard ... or the whole thing can topple over. (no... I don't have pics! ) A buddy securing things is a very good idea.

I have a Stebel Nautilus on my R80RT that I intend to remove before I sell it(wanna buy an airhead?) but after looking over my Tiger Roadie, I am not at all sure of how that project will proceed. I may let that sucker fly in the great wide open. Maybe buy another one and mount them like Motolights on the front brake calipers! Would sure nuff make noise!

If you are considering the stebel I think you should have a look at this:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...cycles-cars-an

http://bansheehorn.com/

Fitment issues will remain similar but I find this to be very clever - one of the reasons i have actually stayed away from stebels to date is solved by this contracption.

I am in NO way affiliated with these guys - I just think it's clever/compelling.

Yes you have to remove the braiding. I get a little popping but with the added "gruff" from the exhaust it completes the aural feast.

LV Can FIt

I did not have to remove the "braided" material (exhaust gasket) to fit the LV mid pipe. Merc & Kildare, yours wouldn't fit at all?

No, not a chance it would fit - the Scorpion connector pipe diameter is bigger then the OEM connector pipe.

Not really a big deal (once you figure it's not actually going to fit no matter how long you stare at it ) as the clamp seals it well enough.
