Wanted to do this ever since I first bought my bike: Ace bars, D9 bracket, Biltwell grips, relocated turn-signals, traditional headlight brackets. What a difference...

Sp that looks awesome. Dropped the black beauty off at a local shop to get my tires mounted and balanced. Earlier I went to change the plugs with NGO iridium a and I found out bc sent me the wrong ones. I figured I would wait on the 19t until the tires are on.

Hey thanks Rubicon! I was trapped in my cramped shed so the crappy cellphone pics don't really don't show how much better the front end looks with the gages tucked in and the new bars and headlight brackets. It just didn't look right to me in the stock configuration.

Well, it was actually yesterday. And I basically lifted the cover and looked at it once or twice while I was replacing the coolant hoses on my Monster S4RS...

I put her in the middle of the garage so I can work on it. Will be changing the fork fluid and using engine enamel to paint the engine covers black.

I fitted the Thruxton seal protectors the other day & rather than modify the front flasher mounting bracket I ordered the Thruxton bracket.

Fitted it up tonight, it moved the flashers in closer & lower, it also moved the regulator lower as well....looks ok & different to a standard Scrambler

Cheers Terry
