So, today my brother and I did the following mods to my 2013 Scrambler.
Cyclops LED 3800 lumen headlight bulb.
Superbrightleds LED driving lights (700 lumens each, 25 degree spread), parking bulb, and taillight bulb.
Norman Hyde mirror extensions (they only had them in polished stainless, but will paint them later to match). These were a 1000 percent improvement. Before I could only see my shoulders.
Dime City flush mount black gas cap
Genmar handlebar risers.
Polished aluminum skid plate by Hotrodcarpy (ebay seller), brackets are very strong and the the quality is very high and it's less expensive by far than other skid plates I have seen. Still not a true "bash plate", though.
Center stand by Tech Bike Parts (only issue: we had to take off about 1/8 an inch of metal off of the sidestand foot, or the sidestand would jam in the up position). I also sat on the bike while on the center stand and rocked side to side. I weigh 320 and the center stand didn't so much as even creak.
We notched the bolt holes on the headlight guard. This makes it easy to attach and remove without having to totally remove the headlight reflector and shell mounting bolts. (we touched up the bare metal with paint to keep it from rusting).
I also had the seat modded by Astech Seats near Gas City Indiana. They added dual density memory foam and a gel pad, and the seat looks totally stock. (it's the solo seat with luggage rack).
Later I am going to do a serious reinforcement on the luggage rack base, since it's just bolted into plastic.
This was over the last two weeks and not today, but didn't want to start a new thread, or hijack another to show my mods.
