got cut off today in the rain, hit breaks, front wheel lost traction and I found myself with a bruised thigh and a ruined evening.

Sigh.

I'm fine and no major damage, though the foot peg and rubber nub on the shift lever broke.

I've seen some alternatives to OEMs posted, but I was wondering whats the most recent.

Not really looking to drop $150 on pivot pegs, so what are some cheap replacements for the shift lever and foot pegs?

My mate's scrambler started cutting out, then a big backfire, and started up again on a recent trip to Scotland. It was the side stand switch that had worked loose and when he hit a bump cut the ignition.
When you changed the oil, did you fill the filter up with oil before you fitted it?
No didn't fill the filter, but i read it's 3,75 litres including change of filter. That sidestand issue sounds weird but logical. I'll check that on mine. Cheers

Glad you were not hurt too bad.


Anyway, I used the MSR folding shifter , Part number is 34-2161. I think I got it for around $20 with shipping. The only thing I dont like about it is that the knurled pattern marks up your boots but I use a little heat shrink tubing over it for a fix.

I cant help you on the pegs. All the aftermarket ones are pretty expensive but I do remember a post here where someone used Suzuki RM-250 ones with a little grinding.

Thanks.

Looks like the route I am going.

First at (any) speed "crash". Wasn't fun. I was probably only 15-20mph when I hit. Pants knee pad pocket has a few holes burned through and knuckle protection has some rash on it. Doesn't look like my head hit the ground though as I didn' see any rash on the helmet. Didn't see any on my jacket, either.Looks like I just hit on my leg and slid for a minute on the wet pavement.

Got lucky though, some minor rash on the headers and the aforementioned peg / shifter damage was all. Doesn't look like shaft or anything was bent, just the pin snapped on the shifter.

I'll either just wrap the headers or live with it.

Most annoying part is looking back and trying to figure out where I !@&%#* up and could have done something differently.

Glorious sunshine

At last a bit of sunshine in blighty.

Looking forward to Normandy Beaches run with the missus on her Bonny and me on the Scram.

I bought these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/390423180176

I'm not 100% satisfied with them, but they work for what I need until I either find better ones or drop money on something I'll like. The only thing I don't like is the peg doesn't sit level or at least it feels like my feet want to rest at a different angle. But I bought my bike missing one when it fell over in a wind storm (previous owner) and they work good enough for $15

Hey guys, checking around for MSR shifter lever.
Motorcycle-superstore.com has a selection for different motorcycle bikes and various models to choose from.

Are they all the same or is there certain model to choose from?

I see MSR part # 34-2161 is the chosen part here. Its stated for Honda bike replacements. Also states its 1 inch longer than stock.

So for guys who own this part, is it the same length as the Triumph stock shifter lever?
Or is it a longer fit on the Triumph Scrams?

I'm just checking before I order one for my Scram.
Thanks.
Dave

Hi, can you post any pics to show how they fit and sit?
Looking at an economical alternative.

thanks.

I dont know where I stashed the original shifter but the MSR one measures 4 3/4" center to center or around 5 1/2" overall length. I like the extra inch, I had problems with the factory shift lever when I rode to work with my steel-toe boots on.

Cheers Max, as you know your bronze effect badges were my inspiration.

I did try bronze/gold like yours, but my end result was not good.
