Hi !
I recently got my exhaust and my build is now complete.
What I did :
- aftermarket turn signals
- clubman handlebars
- new paint
- homemade licence plate holder
- r&g crash pads
- remus exhaust
- rizoma mirror
- aftermarket grips

Once I will have a little money I might upgrade the seat (stock one still feels pretty uncomfortable)
Let me know what you think !
Cheers,
Philip

Wow, a big difference there with the clubman bars. What is the ride like with the bars? Can you have someone take a photo with you sitting on the bike with the bars? I have the R&G frame sliders. Why do you call them crash pads? Never heard that term before. Exhaust looks good, how does it sound and perform? Paint looks good too....what color? Cannot tell from the photo. Looks like a flat blue or green from here.

Hey !
Sorry about the crash pads thing, english is not first language.
Bars feel good, I'm pretty used to ride low bars so I enjoy it.
The color is an audi grey with satin finish, and the exhaust has a nice deep tone !
I'll post a vid soon :)

Very slick indeed! Definitely replace the stock seat as it is a killer. I just did the Ducati Comfort seat and it makes a big difference. Are you thinking of some rear sets to put your feet back a bit further? Also how about attaching an audio clip of that exhaust? Too cool for school for sure!

Your bike looks great. Can you post a pic showing your bike out in the day light standing about 10 foot away as would like to see those indies from the rear

Hi, I see the 'box' from the stock exhaust is still hanging under the bike. I thought it could be removed when installing the Remus...

The box is the cat and you need it in Europe as well as Switzerland to be road legal.

I really like your Scrambler, everything fits well. One questions though: why don't you use clip ons? Wouldn't that look cleaner?

Not strictly needed in UK at the present time...but manufacturer must provide the cat at point of sale as that is a legal requirement

Thx, things are getting clearer. Now at least I know what a 'cat' is ;-). My Scrambler is still undergoing changes. I'll make new pictures once it is more or less finished. What do you mean by clip ons?

Clip ons are the handlebars from superbikes, you don't have one bar with all grips, buttons, levers and mirrors attached to, but two small bars "clipped" to the fork.
That solution is usually quite low, so many people don't choose it, but the OP has a handlebar that is equally low. It looka cooler in my opinion because you don't have that bar running over the upper tripple clamp.
But at the Scrambler that's a bit difficult to change, because the gauge is fixed to the bar clamps, so you need a new solution there.

Looks great, but I prefer to sit a little more upright. Actually I installed the FT-bars already. Looks way better then the Icon bars and still not too low. Waiting for new mirror and grips!

btw; you know who made the bike in the picture? I want a headlight like that!!!

I don't know who made it, but if you find out, let me know, because I am interested to learn more about that cafe racer tail.
The headlight is nothing special I guess, you will get that in every bike parts store, but you would probably lose the standart ring lights of the Scrambler.
Here an example from a German shop:
Headlight: HAUPTSCHEINWERFER SCHWARZ, 6 1/2 ZOLL - Louis - Motorrad & Freizeit
Headlight mount: HIGHSIDER LAMPENHALTERSET MIT BLINKERAUFNAHME - Louis - Motorrad & Freizeit

you will probably get it cheaper off ebay.

If you're lucky and you have a look at the headlight of the Scrambler you may can fit the standard headlight to this headlight housing.
