Nice bars

Hi, I've just bought a black '12 scram and amongst other things I want to change the bars. I like you black 'western'? Bars. Any info on them?
Sorry guys...first post and thought the image etc from the original post would show.
I'll try again but if anyone knows a supplier of fairly high wide black bars please let me know

Sorry for the slow reply Simon - haven't been around much.
As mentioned above the lights come from New Bonneville.

You can ask them to wire out the running lights if you don't want your turn signals on all the time. Thats what I did.

Great bunch of new custom Scramblers showing up. Soon as I think I've seen it all, fresh ideas show up.

Lets see your Scrambler from all sides Extreme scrambler! Looking good.
Click that digi camera...

Passing Flasher

My High beam flasher has never worked. I bought the bike used and am curious if it ever worked. The controls look to be parts bin items and knowing what pricepoint target the Bonnies sit at it would not surprize me if it never working.
I do like this bike hope the chrome rots off of it slower than the rubber parts.

So I currently have a 2005 Triumph Bonneville T100 and I love it for doing road riding and have taken it on some pretty bad roads in the back country between California highways 299 and 36. I am not thinking of getting rid of this motorcycle but was thinking about setting up a second one for more heavy duty fire roads and some mild off road areas.

Can a Bonneville T100 set up with better shocks and converted to the high pipes get the same clearance as a Scrambler? I figure if I change the front sprocket to a 17T, or even a 16T, that I can get about the same felt torque as what the 270 degree crank motor puts out. It may be sacrilege to say but I could care less about how the engine sounds and am much more worried about the performance being as good as I can get out of this frame.

I could use some input on the best shocks to be using but cost is also a factor at most I would be looking at the $700 range and would rather keep it lower, I know this has been covered before in posts that I had read but many were 3-5 years old so if anyone has current info that would be very useful.

Because a Bonneville uses 1" handle bars it was difficult to locate a motocross bar that would fit but found these: http://www.biltwellinc.com/index.php...t_detail&p=185

I was also planing on putting an Arrow 2:1 on it and know that I need to get the bracket and right side cover for that modification.

Used Bonnevilles are much easier to find than Scramblers and unfortunately I can't afford to buy a new motorcycle, only used. Plus I like carbureted way more than the new fuel injected so I am looking at only 2005-2007 Bonnevilles and 2006-2007 Scramblers as options.

So what do you guys think? Probably that I am crazy... :)

Norris
Hi Norris,

I turned my '08 T100 bonneville into a scrambler. I went with icon fork springs and rear shocks from new bonneville. Aluminum MAS fenders. Zard 2-1 Low mount exhaust. 1" MX Bar from lowbrow Customs (HD-MBD-01-BK).
Mitas Tyres.

Bike now handles great off-road.

Pretty jealous of you colonial chaps that have all these dirt roads and fire roads to scoot about on.....seems we don't have too many equivalents here in the UK....any Brits out there know of some good off road riding?....I remember Salisbury Plain used to look pretty good but that was from the inside of a Landrover being chased by "Russians" about 20 years ago.
Hi Simon,

I fitted the MAS Alu mud guards and I'm very happy with them. Nicely made. Only negatives are that they're not cheap and I had to wait about 6 months for the front fender to be manufactured. But I've got it now and very happy.
