Bike all stock, just the tyre pressures dropped to 30psi front and rear, and the rear shock on max preload. Serious ground clearance issues, hence the low corner speeds. Great fun all the same, and surprised a lot of sportsbike riders on the brakes :)

How did the front brake cope? It seems to do very very well, being a single disc. I'd expect it to run into trouble on a track.

I'm loving the MT-60 tyres on the scrambler. They seem to be supreme all rounders!

Front brake was fine! I did have to adjust the lever out a click, but only because I was using more pressure than I would on the road.
Tyres were spot on, a few small slides in the wet first session, but in the dry the grip far outweighed the ground clearance!
I can't see me swapping them for anything else at the moment, and I'm soon to be on my third pair!

3rd pair in less than 10k miles... Impressive! haha My front is past due now and I considered putting a set of Diablo Rosso 2's on but I just can't see the point now. The MT's have never made me feel nervous.

Your Scrambler sees a lot of hard use, anything you've done to it that you think is a must have?
