    I did the AI removal on my EFI Scrambler. I knew it would throw a code (complete removal with no resistor), but I was under the impression that I could clear it using TuneEcu. I've unchecked the SAI box, cleared the code, reset adaptions and let the bike run 20+ minutes in the garage. I still have a CEL light on. Do I need to allow it to heat up and cool down a few times before the CEL goes off, or did I jump the gun by removing the AI Solenoid before disabling the SAI box on TuneEcu? My google-fu isn't coming up with a definitive answer.

    good times last week camping with the guys...an icy owl creek pass here in CO took down a couple of sporties but we marched on, until the knee deep snow. My first time to Moab won't also be my last...some crappy IG's of the trip for now, hopefully an equally crappy Vimeo to follow soon:

    I shit you not, it took me nearly twenty times for the "erase codes" function to work completely when I uploaded my TTP tune via tune ecu. Keep at it. The light will clear on the indicator while youre still hooked up.

    Anyone else have trouble finding neutral when the bike is warm or hot? If I come to a stop in gear then try to find neutral, it's super-easy when the bike is cold but as it warms up it becomes harder and harder to get into gear. When the bike is toasty warm sitting in traffic it takes a special boot down from second gear to get into neutral. A pull up from first will always overshoot due to the pressure needed to move the shift lever.

    Clutch lever is adjusted per factory spec. Tried adding more slop than spec, less slop, no change in behavior.

    Does it when filled with Rotella T6, like now, or Amsoil 10w/40 motorcycle oil.

    Stick to the factory recommended oil since the Scram has a wet clutch. I've never had a problem finding neutral hot/cold using Mobil 1 Racing 4T 10w-40.

    I've had my scrambler for about 3 months now and I have the same issues. Its not the best gearbox in the world. I thought it would get better with more miles on but no change apart from I have got used to it more but its still a pain.

    Love it! My mates and I will be doing a trip like that on California's Lost Coast next weekend. Two nights riding an camping up to Fort Bragg. My Throwback brother rides a 2008 Scram. I'll be on my 1978 Yambler (counterfeit!)

    Changed my stock 17t sprocket to a 18t and the results are fantastic. Definitely makes better use of the power upgrades and makes hitting the ton up mark easier. Will make highway rides easier here in Colorado with speed limits of 75 which means 80-85. I also need to get a 16t for the planned dirt mountain passes I plan on doing in the near future. Does anyone have any input on the 16t?

    Very nice. I chickened out and had mine installed at the dealer. Scrambler without Arrow is just not the same for me. :clap
