It's been a while since I have been on this forum however I got the SCR (ratSCRambler as I call it) cleaned up and took it out for a ride up in the N Georgia mountains. I really need new tires and am looking at the Shinko E-804/805's but am hoping someone here has either ran those or have other tires they recommend. I want something that is knobbly for some off-road but still good on daily commutes.

Hope you all had an awesome weekend! I remounted the Acerbis supermoto front fender this weekend to have it not point upward as much and thought I would share the basic steps.

The fender is drilled out on each side so that u-bolts can be inserted:

Then installed the 2 2-1/4 inch u-bolts around the fork tubes just below the lower triple tree:

Once the fender is installed using the u-bolts, wrap the metal straps around the lower triple tree and u-bolts to hold the fender up tight to the lower triple tree and then placed a metal spacer between the fender and lower triple tree to space down the front of the fender:

Then wrapped leather straps over the metal straps to hide the ugly metal straps:

Here is a side shot of the bike showing the high fender installed and the fender is now more level instead of the slight upward slant as it was before installing the spacer. I plan on re-doing it all again with a new fender now that I have it installed the way I like it.

The rear of the fender is rubbing a little against the horn however it is not enough to notice. I am thinking about shaving some of the rear fender down to keep it from touching at all.

Have a great Monday!

Is that a steel fender? Looks good. Kinda wild with the boxes in back and high fender up front.
