Being cheap, I went with the basics - progressive front springs and Hagon shocks on the back. This resulted in a huge amount of improvement on ride and handling. I know folks have done much more than this, but the set up is suitable for the fire and gravel roads I use and I am happy with the set up.

It is the zard. Overall I'm well chuffed with it, great quality, easy to install, sounds good with either baffle in or out. Seat of the pants tells me there's a hike in performance across the rev range. I've got a service coming up in a couple of weeks where i'll get the dealer to make sure all is ok.
here's another taster.................

I love that exhaust! Zard, huh? You replace the right side panel, too?

side panel was £20 off Ebay. Needed a little adjusting to make it fit, but i feel it finishes the job off

Fuel injection 2009?

I just read that the 2009 Bonneville is fuel injected (disguised to look like carburetors). Any word if this is the same for the Scrambler?

Hey RV4 my dealer said the seat you have mounted would not fit on the Scram. Looks like you've got it on there just fine. Was there any issue with changing it out? thanks. Looks good. Green Scramblers are the fastest.

Good question.
Will all seats for a Bonneville fit a scrambler ?

The seat went straight on, no probs. On UK triumph sites all the bonnie seats are listed as accsessories for the scrambler.

Pissed

Just noticed that I have blown another Ikon shock.

This will be the third one

Always the one near the pipes.. heat ?

Yes they will replace it... but this is getting tiresome.
