What does everyone envision their first mod is going to be on the Scrambler?

I already know, well its not one mod but a group of modifications I plan to make straight off the hop.

Clip ons/clubmans
Adjustable rear sets
Speedscreen/Fairing

The throwbackish styling is going to lend itself well to a cafeish look, Actually I'm kind of envisioning something along the lines of the sport classic...

I'll have to see what the bike looks like before I put a fairing on the front, but I will definitely consider it. I as also thinking about putting a grate over the headlight. New exhaust depending on what the stock one looks like.

See its not so much about the bikini (notice how i lisit it last ;)) but the ergonomics, I think you can get some really sporty ergos going on, this thing is going to be a downright weapon in and around town :D:D:D

I think that the sporty ergos would kinda ruin the Scrambler look to the bike. I won't say for sure until I see it though. I just figure that the bike isn't really designed with that in mind.

Why wouldn't you just get a Ducati that is sporty instead of spending all that time modding the Scrambler?

because thats just not the same. We're not talking about difficult stuff here either. Pegs and bars are relatively straight forward modifications that really do not require all that much time. Plus its something I enjoy doing...

yeah some people enjoy going through the whole customization thing, some go crazy, im not sure what @project usually does and how far he will go but it seems like he'll do a good amount of mods.

No nothing too serious. But I always modify the ergos to suit me when buying a new bike. Sometimes its only the seat that NEEDS to move, sometime only bars. In this case I want to do bars and pegs, hopefully I can get a look coing on similar to the sport classic I posted in OP. Rear sets and clip ons should do the trick IMO!

Is it more about the look of the bike for you or about comfort when riding? I'm just curious how you could know what you want to do with the ergos until you have actually sat on the bike.

I never said I KNEW what changes would be needed. I said I always modify the ergos to suit me, yes I want to move the bars and the pegs, to where and how much, well those are the key questions that can be answered once the bike gets here.

You don't need seat time to know that ergos need to suit the rider...

You just seemed like you already knew what you wanted to do with it so I was curious if you had an idea of what you were looking for in ergos before you even got the bike. I just wouldn't have any clue what I want to do till I had the bike in front of me.

ok here is a quick look at the ergos supplied by Ben!





I think some of you longer legged tall boys may find your knees above the tank. In need of rearsets you may be ;)

I'm gonna kill the "lollipop" mirrors, and put some CRG levers on (like all my bikes), but not much else.

The bike is pretty much perfect to me otherwise.

Will be rectifying the bargain basement suspension ASAP, and as soon as someone makes a high pipe - its going on.

So there are 4 different versions of the Scrambler, but apparently you can mix and match the parts of the different versions to customize your own. That means plenty of customization options even before any aftermarket parts come out. What parts do you think you'll gather together to make your Scrambler unique and your own?

My favourite model is the Full Throttle and the first mods would be:
Road tyres - same size.
Rizoma 60mm bar end mirrors.
Termi Exhaust - the original ones fitted have got "cats" in them and I am assuming will be very quite. So, I would investigate putting on "real Termis". It may be cheaper to buy another model and put my own Termis on it.
Investigate removing the Number Plate holder thingy and putting the number plate in the "normal" position behind the seat and between the indicators.
If the fuelling is as bad as my 09 Monster 1100 was, then a Rexxer tune is a must for me.
