Maybe this subject has been discussed in another thread, if so you can delete it...

If not, let's see how you can easily and cheaply modify your Scrambler to remove quite all throttle jerking and get a good feeling from the front wheel.

Our preferred bike handlebar is mounted on the upper tee via a vibration damping system. This system is a little too soft and the effect of this softness is that you react on the throttle specially on bumpy roads. We call this throttle jerking and many of you are worrying about this.

How do we proceed ?

Just unscrew the screw under the upper tee, that holds the bolt coming from the handlebar support. There's one on each side of the tee. Remove also the washer. Don't remove anything else.
Before mounting back the original washer and screw, put on the bolt 2 washers (on each side) with following dimensions : external diameter 33 mm, internal diameter 19 mm, thickness 3 mm.
Put back the original washer and the screw and tighten the bolt. You'll see that the handlebar mount will come in contact with the upper tee. Tighten the bolt as much as possible.

Now, the vibration damping is unactivated. Go and ride and enjoy a different bike : no more throttle jerking, more precision and more feeling coming from the front wheel, no vibrations in the handlebar !

Thanks for sharing Vince!
While sourcing the proper washer for the job, can I confirm tool size required to unscrew the nut below the tee?
