Thanks vic! I got em on ebay, this is the seller I purchased mine from : http://www.ebay.com/itm/Triumph-Bonn...dec9fc&vxp=mtr

No adhesive on the back tho, I used industrial double sided tape that's thin (enough)...

Hahaha, that's funny I've had issues since I rode in a sidecar for my second time earlier this week. Each time I ride in one, I want one more! Maybe on another airhead tho, probably not the eggbeater...

Arrow set up

[QUOTE=milestones;20850803]If I recall correctly, 138 mains, 42 pilots... ai-removed, unifilter in lieu of stock air filter.

Hey Stones,

I just put an Arrow on my 06 Scrambler. Are you sure on that carb set up? Do you think if I just do the AI Removal it will be enough to not blue the headers on my new arrow?

Thank
JP

Hey JP, I'm 95% sure but I can look back to confirm. The arrow header, from what I see anyway, doesn't blue so much as darken. It's natural to have some change in the header unless the pipes are double wall. Imo, the change in the headers lends to character. As for only doing ai removal, I'm sure others can chime in here but I believe a large part of the way my bike runs is due to the trifecta of carb setup, ai removal and airfilter + of course the arrow exhaust. From past experience, it's always good to complete the circle, i.e. if you change the exhaust which flows more air, it helps to have more air coming in and thus, more fuel

One must be specific when it comes to jets...138 OEM Keihin jets will be too lean for that spec; 138 DJ jets may be OK. Which do you have?

Exhaust system question

Has anyone put an Arrow 2 into 1 low exhaust system om the Scrambler? I want to put a low system on it for taking young grandsons for rides.

If not Arrow, any other recommendations that are available in the U.S. ??

Hello fellow scrambler friends. I apologize for not responding to the current subjects of this thread, but I am very interested in purchasing a single foot peg from one of you. I need to get a right side driver's peg. If necessary I can buy a whole set but I'd rather just get the one single right side peg. Thanks for any help. Please shoot me a PM if you got one for sale. I could also use a chrome headlight trim ring...

Thruxton gel seat for my Scrambler

I got the Thruxton gel seat on. I like the lines a lot better and it is a bit more comfortable. I'm used to riding bicycles long distances so comfort is relative.

Finished a fender delete on my Scram this weekend. I like the look.

More to come..... Tank and front fender get redone.

I really feel like I may have the ugliest scrambler out there.



The result of 2 accidents, various mods and random paintjobs

Stones,

Sounds good! I will do the AI removal and the air filter at the same time. What Air Filter are you running? K&N? I may just wait to see how the bike reacts before doing the tweaking with the carbs. But, if you or anybody else can recommend the "perfect" carb set up for a 2006 Scram with Arrow, that would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

JP
