Hey everybody just joined ADV! Spent a lot of time on dotheton during last years build. Just now working my way through this thread there are some fantastic stories and photos! Hopefully I can soon add to them as I just picked up a 2012 scrambler, it's my first triumph and I must say I'm rather pleased thus far!

Use that, essentially?

I like it.

I got mine from my local dealer.

Another thought - Anyone have any rain pants they use that play nice with the exhaust?
Joe Rocket Ballistic rain pants have a heat resistant lower section.

The one in your link is an adaptor that would plug into the system and provide a 'cigarette lighter' socket to power devices that use that plug. I have one of those to power one of my video cams.

Right. Not sure if its a 2012 thing, but the connector that goes from the battery is already on the bike. Thanks for the info! I'd much rather take advantage of something already there.

Absolutely! Mine didn't have one when I bought it (used); but it's the most foolproof, rugged, and versatile solution I've seen for 'power sharing'.

Hi guys, new Scram '12 efi stock owner.
Just picked up and in the break in period.

I noticed in 3rd,4th,5th the sound changes, to a whine/grindy sound.
So in 1st/2nd, its rumbling as much as the stock exhausts can, then loses it from 3rd up.

Seems odd/weird?
So, is this normal, can it be because of breakin period?

I'll drop by the dealer when I can.

TIA

Dave

Bike Bandit... you'll want this OEM power outlet kit:
http://www.bikebandit.com/search?q=A9938015

And this lighter adapter:
http://www.bikebandit.com/bikemaster...hter?b=2737824

Edit: the part number is A9938015 and the instructions are here:
http://www.triumphinstructions.com/P...9938015-EN.pdf

You do not have to remove the gas tank to install this item. Some have installed the power adapter without unbolting the tank at all. I unbolted the tank and used a piece of wood to prop it up, like the first photo in this chain:

mass arrived

Got my Mass system delivered yesterday, mounted it but got a couple of issues that I must solve.
The sensors is pretty close to the heat for the cylinders, and I have problem with a small leak on the left pipe.
Any solutions of that Snake?

Shiny parts

Testing

Had to switch back to the arrows since we are off to a track day today. Guess next weekend is booked :-)

Not sure if it's available in Norway but try Permatex Muffler & Tailpipe sealer for the leak.

HenryII those are some great pictures, and a great bike. Kind of reminds me of the Adirondacks (except for the amoutn of snow-covered treeless peaks). Those MASS pictures have me drooling...please let us know how the install goes and how you like tone with and without baffle and if those pipes work well enough for 2-up riding (if you are into that sorta thing).


Joe, you owe us some pics I'd think...

Love the Scrambler but the T100 is really catching my eye. So classy and really captures what an honest and true motorcycle should look like. Lovely.
