I tend to agree with firebane - the SR does not have enough suspension travel to be a true Scrambler/off-roader so why have the front fender so high? I think it would look better mounted to the fork brace like Jadus did.

Thanks for taking the time to comment guys. 

Trimming the seat height at the back was something that a buddy mentioned as well... makes sense!

My original plan was to have the high front fender so never really thought to try it low, mounted on the brace.  I will see if I can temporarily mount it to the brace and take some photos and post them up.

Much appreciated!

High, Low or No fender?
 
Clearly having no fender isn't terribly practical, and the low fender is VERY close to the tire and doesn't provide much clearance for debris.  That being said, I think I prefer the low or no options over the original high fender.

Thoughts?

The low looks 100% better and it will still provide debris coverage. Also where did you get your rear light from? Ebay?

Thanks man.  I got the tail light from some dude in town, off Kijiji.  It wasn't ideal but did the job and will look better once I've painted it.  I had to make some brackets to make it sit correctly and still be able to mount the license plate.

I agree - I like low better.

In the first few posts you posted a simplified wire diagram but it's not available because photobucket did a thing, can you post it again?

Hi Burkejt1,

No problem. This change with Photobucket is a real pain in the a$$...

I removed the safety switches, the front gauge lights, replaced keyed ignition with push buttons under the seat and replaced the stock batter with a Shorai.

Let me know if you have any questions!
