Of course you can copy all you want
Both discs are specifics for Triumph modern-classics (I don't know if can be mounted on other bikes also).

Remember this:
Scrambler and Bonneville T100 are equipped with a 310mm front disc
Thruxton are equipped with a 320, front disc

Brake caliper is the same on Scram, Bonnie and Thrux.

Front fork outer tube is the same on Scram, Bonnie and Thrux, but - in order to use a 320mm front disc - the Thrux outer tube has the caliper connections 5mm higher than others.

Then: if you use the Thrux outer tube on Bonnie or on Scrambler, you can mount a 320mm front disc

Ok!

I asked about the Beta bike because I can't find in the website the brakes for the Triumph, so, I guess they're just made for you, am I right? If so, do you have the name of someone to ask for your discs?

Nice to know about the 5 milímeters!

I'll talk to my wife, this holidays we're visiting Italy!

Those discs are made for me and for other Bonneville Scrambler Thruxton owners.
You can choose color (of floating disc hub), shape (classic, wave...) and size (310, 320, 330mm, ...).

I have to search the name of person to ask... but if you prefer I can intermediate for you ;)

Let me know...

I'll remember that, for my next brake change :)

Here's another one...

Why do your fork caps look gold in color, and the cap preload adjusters stick up more than the RED Bitubo cartridge forks I purchased here:

Thanks!

It's simple :)

I took this pic BEFORE the installation of Bitubo cartridge
In picture you can see the adjusting preload front fork caps made for Suzuki SV650: I used this caps (with Ohlins springs and cartdrige emulator) for some years.

Joker Concealed Mirrors

These mirrors look great on the bike but does anyone know if they actually work as mirrors in the real world?

Good morning all!

It's possible to fit a 150 Karoo T in OEM rim and without modifying the swing arm?

Or better go to 140?

Wink Newbie....and Scram suspension views

Hi Guys, This is my first post so be gentle and let me know if I am messing up with protocol by diving in here
I have been back and forth to this really quite incredible Scrambler thread over the last few months but haven't had the time to go from start to finish.

Just bought a 2012 black Scram and have a arrow and single seat on it.
First job to improve it is suspension. I can't afford Olins and am dithering between Hagon Nitros back, Hagon progressives front or Ikon equivalents. Theres not much difference in price so any views would be appreciated.

Also is there much advantage in fitting thruxton caps and washers so I can fiddle with preload?

Nick

Welcome in here.
For the rear Olins made some classical look. The Works are nice and good too.
For the fork, Blacktiger has a good sheap solution on page 238 and 255.

I think it's possible.
About Scrambler's rear rim there isn't problems: several Bonneville and Thruxton owners have mounteda 150mm tyre on rear.
You could have only a doubt with regard to knobs overall dimensions, but I'm sure that can fit without issues.

Ciao Nick, welcome ;)

With caps (for 41mm front fork***) with adjustable preload you can measure the SAG and set the correct preload.
I think it is more important than change the spring without the possibility to set the preload.

(*** you can mount ALL caps for 41mm front fork, not only from Thruxton... you can find caps with adjustable preload for 41mm Kayaba forks... like Hornet or Sv or much others)

Do not fit progressive springs , use a straight wound spring , maybe a Racetech which are available in different spring weights.Do a static sag check to assess what rate you want. Preload caps will help but they are a band aid if the basic spring rate is wrong
Have you looked at YSS shocks. Cheaper than O but a step up on Ikons , not sure about Nitros
I spent up on suspension but my bike is a keeper so I figured it was worth it.

PS I'm really enjoying the input from you Euro guys , keep up the good work , kind of inspires me to do more to the Scram.
My attention has been diverted away from the Scram a little by ' Winston ' but still riding it every weekend
