if you can share a few things about your ownership of the 2017+ Yamaha SCR950 Scrambler, what would it be? The most liked or hated, share them with every one I am sure you won't be the only one.
Single year production should be listed under the Pros Eddie.Cons:
It's a one year wonder. Thankfully, most of the hard parts are shared with the Bolt 950 going back to 2014.
That mark's accuracy might be in question with as little as ground angle, front fork rotation, etc... Straight up and down per the manual isn't easy, but it is likely more accurate and repeatable.Oh BTW how the bloddy **** do you check the oil in this thing without having a helper ???
They should have a marking on the dipstick where it should be on the kick stand on level ground …. grrrr I'll make one I guess.
Can't argue any of what you said Mellow. It comes down to one of two reasons that we are drawn to the SCR.Greetings.
Good things first.
Price!... Its alot of bike for six grand out the door. Its dependable. It looks great. People ask about it comment on its looks.
Now for the not so good on my opinion. I am six 3 and a bit arthritic in the hips. The peg placement for me is too wide number 1 and too far back.
Its very uncomfortable. The foot controls should be moved forward (For me). Its also too heavy and does not corner well. And it seems like it has a wide turning radius?
Its got a lot of power... but then again its doesnt at the same time....
I really think that my old 1977 KZ 750 has more power if it was tuned up and running right.
I come from 5 years riding the 1977 KZ which has a lot of problems..
So I really like how the scr starts right up and runs good (No kick start)
But it could use a center stand and not just a side stand.
The scr is great when Im not in pain from the old hips... and its actually not too bad when my joints loosen up after 5-10 min.
So maybe it has to do more with my broken down body than the design but....
Why put pegs back to enable rider to stand on them like a scrambler when in fact it should not be driven off road????
Makes no dam sense to me.
Il say it for the 10th time.... In the owners manual on 2-2 at the bottom it states
The vehicle is not designed for off road use and should not be driven off road.
The whole concept of making a scrambler that really isnt and designing pegs for off road use when it shouldnt be driven off road is ridiculous... Stupid even. False advertising to boot.
Its not comfortable. Foot pegs too wide. Not a natural position with the legs splayed out.
Its okay but Id rather have my old KZ fixed up and runnning over this.
Gas tank too small and no storage space anywhere
Yea, I dont know Burke. After having health insurance for 32 years, I was laid off 5 years ago and have not had health insurance since. Freelancing since 2013. The scr cost 100.00 a month. Health insurance is well over 400 for the cheapest plan. So, it would probably be easier to just move the pegs forward.It might be easier to fix the hips. need to replace ??? Shame. #metoo (knee):frown2:
