I thought I better start my own thread on my build.

I have ordered ‘22 Scrambler, which is due late March/ early April. I have made a build list of parts to be added to the bike and parts are coming in (slowly).

This is currently in the house, and it will allow me to spray paint the rear fender and front screen already in Kalamata colour.

SW-Motech skid plate and stainless crash bars (replace bolts for inner hexagonal ones)
unit garage screen, screen extension and gps support
unit garage comfort handle bars
unit garage rear fender and numberplate support, added rear reflector (FC-Moto)

still waiting for the Al hard cases, hand guards, Rizoma mirrors, SW-Motech Micro tank bag.

Man, it’s going to be a real baby! I don’t think there’s anyone on this forum who joined 9 months before the bike’s arrival! Feels like you’ve been here forever! Looking forward to this one!

For now it will make quite the rocking chair, a real conversation piece. There are no highway pegs for the crash bars?
You have way more patience than me (y). Tons here about foot pegs and the like, so you will rocket into having fun nearly straight away.

Ah :) you're still waiting for your ride to arrive? Did you already order a GPS bracket?
For 'Pumba the 2nd' I ordered the Unit Garage GPS Bracket. Pumba the 1st had the PEMOPA GPS bracket.

Here's a picture of the mount on Pumba the 1st

Cool to see how you envision the bike, without the bike being there yet! Will follow and I hope the winter will go by quick so you can welcome your Nine T

So I had the spacers of the handguards machined down to 30mm to be able to fit the mirrors on there.

Next step was to trial fit the handguards to the unit garage comfort handles. The handles have an internal thread (M12) but Barkbusters provides an expanding sleeve that should fit inside the handle bar. However I don't think that an expansion from 12mm to 17mm is possible to do and make it fit properly inside the handlebar. I am wondering why Barkbusters could not use the existing M12 thread with a adjuster of somekind...

So I went looking for adapters M12 outside to M8 inside and Rizoma turned out to have these!!! WOOHOO!!! part number LP323B, for the BMW C600 scooter, awesome!! 🥳🥳

So ordered the parts and they came in today. Went to trial fit these very nice pieces but for some reason the M12 thread would not engage,... huh???? 🤦‍♂️

Turns out there are two pitches for the M12 thread, 1.5 (fine) and 1.75 (coarse).... and guess what... the handlebar has M12x1.75 but FFS BMW made the handlebars for the C600 with M12x1.5... why oh why???? :mad:😭😭😭

Now looking in to having these machined by a local shop at great expense I am sure....

Why do we have standards if they are not applied??? I am going to cry in the corner some more now...

@Chopper_Bob
I would cut the threads over with a die M12x 1.75. It sounds impossible but it works
That is what we are going to attempt first. it is an aluminium part so could be quite soft, but will loctite it in place anyway!

I vote for @Chopper_Bob to win BOTMWOTABY (Bikeofthemonthwithouttheactualbikeyet)
I don’t think there has ever been a member who had collected that many mods way before delivery. That’s true compassion!
