Nice.

Can you post an image of where you placed the camera? Also, next time, it be great if you can level the camera rather than have it leaned out to one side...

Yeah, I know the camera tilt is a little annoying. I had it leveled when the bike was still on it's side stand. Tilt the bike upright, and voila! Tilted video!! Just something for me to remember when I'm setting it up again next time.

Here's some pictures showing the setup:

Hello guys,

Just got some new pipes and an AI removal kit. The pipes seem pretty free-flowing as I can see daylight through them. Is there a standard go-to carburetor set-up (jets and air screws) that I should use, or should I bring it to a professional to be adjusted? I guess if there's a standard carburetor set-up for an aftermarket exhaust then I could easily do it myself, otherwise I'd bring it to a pro who knows how to get an ideal mixture.

On a side note, can anyone in the north east (NY specifically) suggest a good triumph mechanic? Thanks for any suggestions.

Zdravo & congratulations! I regulary checked your "works in progress" in the garrage and I have to say again: Lubisha is a genius. Perfect work.

And speaking about japanese Scrambler - your Xhaust reminds me a bit Yoshimura BTW have you solved the carburetors issues? How is it going?
I was out with my bike this weekend, still a lot of water & sand on the roads around the city, but I enjoyed riding downtown.....

BTW: Are U satistfied with those Dunlops? I am seriuosly cosidering them for the "tarmac" future.Realy nice pattern

Wow!! I can't believe that I read the whole thing. It grew a few pages while I was coming along. It's probably going to hit 1000 pages today.

Joe883. I saw this a little while back and was thinking about this set-up with a TW200 for my kayak. I don't think a scooter would work for very long. I ended up here thinking scrambler because I would like a hack on the hi-way from time to time. Plus, a scrambler just has the cool factor.

Take a look. http://www.oceankayak.com/fishing/bl...ide_kayak_car/

1000 pages coming soon, maybe today! To the uninitiated it must be hard to fathom that a bike so apparently as ordinary as the humble Triumph Scrambler could generate such passion amongst the true believers! I mean, there are many way-more exotic dual-sports that have been around for years longer (2003 in the case of the first KTM 950) and many more, no forgeting to mention the Bavarian Boxers, but the Scrambler seems to press all the right buttons among so many riders.

How often do we read posts from a current rider of the latest you-beaut dual-sport who wants to line up with us here and buy a Scram! Happens all the time so what is it about the Scrambler that riders find so endearing? That my friends is a hard one to answer in the collective so I can only speak for myself as the owner of a motorcycle rental company that has many bikes at my disposal to ride when ever I want or more correctly, when time permits. I own and have ridden most of the big sellers in this field including the BM's, KTM's and the incredible Tiger 800 which I would take the for a ride anyday before I lifted the keys for the R1200GS's and V-Stroms that we also own. But as good as the Tiger 800 is it still does not give me that inner glow I get from the Scrambler! Maybe the new Triumph 1200 Explorer will be the bike to cause a change in allegences but as good as this bike will also be, I still doubt it!

So my friends, I feel inadaquate because I cannot really tell you in definative measureable terms why the Scram is such a buzz to ride and own but I will leave you with a small montage of images that explain the many ways and purposes that you can put this bike to. All images of course are of the same motorcycle but in different stages of development. Maybe it is because in whatever form the Scram is presented there are always people who roll up wanting to talk about the bike, take some pics, reminiss about their old Triumph and just express their appreciation of your work. I often tell people that I ride Triumphs because they are not Jappers and they are not Harley's. Nuff said!


























Lakeside Raceway, Brisbane Qld with my father-in-law, John. I have now "retired" the Scram from the track and put it back into road trim as per the first photo in this series. I feel very satisfied of the service this bike has provided, the fun it has given me and the total reliability of the bike but my biggest satisfaction is that not once has the bike been crashed either on the track or in the mud. Obviously I never rode it hard enough!

Cool, Can you still get a Scrambler with shiny paint? I thought they were only available in matte colors now?

This is my first post in this thread so I thought I would put a pic of my Scrambler.

This is my second Scrambler, the first was an 07 and I traded it for a Street Triple which was a great bike but I always longed for another Scrammie.

Its a 2010 left over. It was a dealer demo and has 1100 miles on it. The price was right and it still has 8 months of warranty.

First Post - New Scrambler



I picked up the bike on Friday and I'm just pissed it's been so cold. I've been working on my 1977 CB 750 for the last year and had to pick something up to ride while I'm working, but 15 minutes on the scrambler is all I need to know I'll own it for the rest of my life. Wonderful ride!
