Its not primer, Times are tough and Triumph cant afford to put a coat of clear on every bike that leaves the factory.

I believe the 2011 Scrams started without piping as I seen a black '11 in showroom without.
My 2012 shipped as you see it.
It came out of the box and onto the lift as is.

Don't know if they still have them or not.
Those screens were designed for the one instrument Scrams before the dual clocks.
Apparently they don't fit the newer dual clock Scrams unless the mounts were modified with extended mounts.

I really like the matched colour and style of those. Dealer suggested it wouldn't fit, so I ordered a Dart screen to fit my dual clocks.

Thanks- i'm using the metal mule panniers:
http://www.metalmule.com/
they are spendy but bombproof and water tight. i justified the expense by getting them when i bought the bike and added the cost to the loan. in my small monkey brain, that made it easier to swallow.
i think the only issue with these is that they will not fit on the right if you have certain pipes (such as the arrow 2 in 1). they work with the stock pipes and probably TORS and some others...

Um, unless it is a KTM 950. Carbed bike, with a fuel pump. Ask me how I know.

An easy to avoid problem that you shouldn't have to avoid. I sold my 950a and bought a scram...I LOVED my 950, but it needed "mothering". Still, they are hard to beat on a good open back road, especially if you are riding on rough/dirt roads. My 950 would stomp all over my buddy's GS1200 once the roads got rough.

In this shot I am pushing down on the stand to open the stops slightly:


In this shot the stand is up and the stops are closed:
Honestly this is my biggest gripe about my scram. The stand clunks whenever you hit a bump because of the metal on metal stops.

EVAP, yes, only in California apparently.

I use a zip tie to stop the center stand from clunking off road.

I have solved the problem by spliting a small chunk of surgical tubing and glueing it between the two surfaces . It last about 6 months before it wears thru but gets rid of the annoying clunk.

Yeah but... Small gum leaves and tiny marsupials can get in and block your jets... is it worth the risk!
