    Do a search for "raise the dust" there are 4 Scramblers doing pretty hard work on the dirt.

    Still cant believe I got this 06 with 2300 miles on her. Ive put 1000 miles on her in two weeks and its my first bike!!!! I pulled the snorkel and really feel like I can tell the difference but there is a bit more induction noise. The AI has also been plugged but those headers are dark blue at this point. Heres a couple from the perfect riding weather weekend. Lake Ontario, Taughannock Falls, and Cayuga Lake Wine Trail. Hey if I do a baffelectomy with the AI and Snorkel off will I have to rejet??

    Considering how well today's motors are made, and the improvements in oil from days gone by, heat cycles play a more important roll, than slow and easy break routines.

    8 full heat cycles, following MFG RPM spec, an oil change and you'll be ready to romp on it. It's more about expansion and contraction and most the effect is early on. The precise fit of components and lubricity of oil doesn't have as much effect anymore.

    After that, ride like you'll ride it

    1. Norman Hyde, Baker and others make large tanks. Do a google search and the sources will be evident.

    finished phase one of my de-chrome project for the scram. Sanded, painted, and clear coated the heat shields. Does anyone know where I can obtain one of those Polaris inlets (bell mouth) that fits our air boxes?? I tried to get one from bike bandit but its a discontinued part now.

    Pretty sure that it's a Polaris part called an Inlet Plenum?

    Redline, shift, redline, shift, redline, shift, redline, shift, redline, shift... rinse, then repeat. Here's a video to help illustrate the concept of proper Scrambler break in.:evil

    Hey strafkommando, are you coming to Bennington Bash (grass roots Triumph Rally in VT) at end of month? It is a great time and there will be a few scrams there. There are a few of us that ride out from WNY.

    I also have a blue/white '06 Scram with air box remobed and BC high headers. It drives my harley buddies crazy, bike envy.

    Id absolutely love to but I think its happening while ill be down in Texas visiting for a music fest. Ill be MIA May 25th through June 2nd. What was the date of the bash??

    I can say I get A LOT of attention on this bike and people fly out of the wood works to talk my ear off about it. Got a center stand, shocks, and a Polaris bellmouth on the way for it. Bafflectomy happening next weekend. A couple of days ago I did the proper prep work and blacked out my heat shields. [​IMG]

    Before anyone ask's, yes i does touch the shock :fpalm but only at full compression, the angle of the pic makes it look worse.

    May has finally kicked off the riding season in Juneau. It's been a great week to commute to work. [​IMG]
