I just installed the Freeway Blaster High note on my Scrambler and Jodie's Bonneville yesterday, straight bolt on replacement. 132db

Doesn't require a relay ? Plug & play ?

Haven't been here in a bit. I recently completed my longest trip on my Scrambler, going from San Jose to Los Angeles along the 101 and PCH with a detour along Pismo Beach. Unfortunately, I left my camera down there, so I'll wait to write about it.

In the mean time, I found this interesting interview with actor Joseph Fiennes (Shakespere in Love) and his Scrambler. Looks like he's got a new one with EFI.

I didn't use a relay, just unplugged the stocker and plugged the new one in. I upgraded the horn on my meanstreak as well and was going to use a relay, but when I looked at the electrical schematic it showed the horn already ran through a relay. I didn't even bother to check the Scram manual but can look tonight to see if it's horn circuit runs through a relay.

I am electrically challenged so I did a plug and play with the Fiamm and it works fine. I guess a solinoid and larger wires might get more juice to the horn but it is loud enough for me and it isn't like I am going to run current to it until the wires heat up.

Someday when I have absolutely nothing better to do I might try and make things a little more correct, but for now - good enough.

Did Triumph go back to making silver engines? Did/do any of the fuel injected bikes have them?

I think that's a misreading of the article. I think his Scrambler is an '06 (unless the UK guys still have the option of silver engine cases) and whoever wrote the little blurbs for the photo just looked up Triumph's spec sheet for the new models and put the most current info in there.

Good choice of background to show off that tank!

Yes, that green is quite beautiful. I have an 08 on order and went back and forth as to whether to go with the silver/green or the silver/tangerine. In the end I decided on the tangerine just because it is a new color for 08 and seemed like it might be kinda cool looking. (Thanks to "The Jerk" for confirming it is.) I just hope I made the right decsion , because that green sure is pretty.

I bet you will be plenty happy. No matter what color they are, Scrammys are darn good looking bikes!

Hey There Vern and Up N Mtns,

I have no doubt I'm going to absolutely love my silver/tangerine Scrammy. I was being tongue in cheek about the green vs. tangerine dilemma -- While I really did go through that dilemma just a bit, I agree with Vern that no matter what the color, the Scrambler is a gorgeous motorcycle! I find myself getting excited about seeing my new ride, but need to practice patience as it will be 2-3 weeks yet before arrival. The dealer had to track one down in the "Lower 48" and it needs to get shipped up here to Alaska. One of the downsides of living up here -- Things need to be shipped up and it takes time. (Sigh)

Kathy
