    GAS: Scram is very good choice. Verry funny and usable bike. My other bike is very nice 08 SpeedTriple. I will start 3rd season with Scram and for this time I have only 3,5k km on S3 :))

    So I have a 01 Bonneville that has been going through alot of upgrades to make it more ADV'ish. Does anyone in the north east know of company in the northeast perferably that can take a Bonneville set up the Moto for max travel both rear and front w/o messing with geometry or stablility on the road?

    I currently have a YSS rear shock scrambler length, I would like to get the Front dial in perfectly. Ground clearance seems to be an issue on the stock bonnie, hopefully that would change w/ the suspension increase.

    It was around 10F the other day and I wanted to see if the Scram would start. Had been about two weeks since I last rode. Always on a Tender.

    No dice. This is the first time I've tried at a temperature at which it simply wouldn't start. I've never been quite clear on how the carb heaters work. Presumably they activate when ignition is on and the thermostat engages them, yes? In very cold conditions, how long would one have to let them run? Five minutes?

    I'm also wondering if there's a temperature at which they're counterproductive. I imagine they draw a fair amount of current. Since every amp is precious when cold starting, is letting the heaters run until the thermostat is happy going to rob the battery? Seems like an LED showing that they're running would be handy, too...

    Yes, it will help to run the carb heaters; but it won't be the heaters that suck the battery dry, it'll be the lights that also come on when the ignition is on. I don't have any 'hard data'; but my guess would be a few minutes of carb heat would probably max-out their effectiveness.

    I've been told they only run when the bike is running. Shouldn't be drawing anything when cranking the bike.

    I've fired up my Scrambler in the mid teens before, cranked right up with full choke, no throttle. My battery is pretty new though, and I've recently turned my idle mixture screws out to two full turns each.

    Also the gear oil in speedo cable and lots of grease in my front wheel hub appeared to stop my cold speedo cable howl. :clap

    The carb heaters are to prevent ice formation in the venturi.

    I suppose these signals are ARIZONA... not very cheap but very nice and high quality CNC alluminium. They are not 100% waterproof - rain & washing causes some mist inside. I used some transparent silicone to seal them and the´re ok.

    The seat is from kompo-tech, good quality. Be aware that a little adjustment must be done if you want to use the seat togheter with the side-bracket from newbonneville.
    The seat is made it with no margins for stuff under it., but that is just a small matter. Satcen is right about the blinkers, Arizona style. Classicbike-raisch got them.
