Is there a guard available or a way to relocate it? Here in New England we have rocks everywhere. I was thinking about riding the Scram on Jeep roads that have basketball sized rocks all over the place. How do you deal with this issue? (or is it a non issue?)
The solution is to purchase the UpNOver caliper bracket from Triumph Twin Power:

Current: 2012 Triumph Scrambler;
'97 Honda XR440 (plated)
Past: '83 Honda XR500; '84 Honda XL600;
'86 Yamaha XT350
