teen, how do you like the thunderbike parts? Cams is what I'm interested in, did they give the gains you expected for the $$$?
Well I have added the performance parts in stages, due to availiabilty of parts rather than any plan. This has given me an insight how each stage has affected performance. Removed air injection, no difference. Cams arrived first and fitted to otherwise standard bike. This gave a small but noticeable improvement, then arrived the Thunderbike mufflers and removed snorkel, another small but noticeable improvement. Then fitted Air box removal kit with Kehin Crs another improvement. The jetting on the CR's is not correct as they came and I am working on this at the moment. Altogether a big improvement but you do need the whole package to get the full benefits. I am used to R1/ GSXR performance and the standard power output from the Scrambler is pathetic for a modern 900 twin. So I was desperate to find some extra go, is it worth the money for the performance parts, depends how desperate you are. The bike is a lot better now with lots more torque and hopefully will really come into its own when I have the correct jetting. Also I hope to get the head flowed/ increase compression at some time to assist the cams to do there job.
Anyone fitting cams should be aware that the oil feed banjo bolts are extremley weak with a ridiculously thin wall thickness. Best get a couple to replace those you remove as they dont like being 'tightened' twice.

Thanks for that Steve, but the styling is not right for the Scrambler. My ideal would be like the high level pipe you have shown at the beginning of the thread for the Scrambler but instead of a two into one, have a seperate left pipe following the same lines as the right pipe. If you see what I mean.On 2006-11-27 16:04, SteveLarson wrote:
These are the Zard Trofeo's used in the Italian Cup series, is this what you are looking for?
Yes, these are for the Thruxton, anybody know if they will fit the Bonneville?
Or the Scrambler?

We have not even manufactured the first batch and you guys are already wanting us to part them out!!! :-D :-D :-DOn 2006-11-28 10:12, rodburner wrote:
Are the Scrambler "high 2 into 1" available in a "headers only" version? I can make my own can,but I do like the look of those headers.The "cross" versions still leave me cold. Sorry.
