Regards, Guy
You've got some great "hills".

Plug and play! And they work great!

great ideas, I think the newbonneville is the trick.
has any body wired a aftermarket tacho? any recommendations?
I fabricated brackets for the number plate on the mufflers, then yesterday I fabricated a headlight stone guard from a jeep headlight guard. easy, and I saved $100 over Triumph OEM parts.......

Thanks MV - I don't modify my bike and it doesn't seem to need much maintenance, so I don't have much to contribute to this wonderful treasure trove of technical info. I do take a few photos now and again when I ride the Scram though. It's a great little bike.

Regards, Guy

Yeah, me too - haven't done much to mine either, but do enjoy all the wisdom shared by the others.

It must be rough Guy. All your rides are photo shoots!
Excellent. Beautiful country...

O.K. I should have done that to begin with. I have not tinkered with it in a couple of days. I'll take some photos and post. although my Lawyer would advise, no tapes, no photos, deny deny deny!

Been slowly amassing the bits and peices required to transform the Scram into a pure road beast for a bit of track work next year. The hubs are genuine Triumph items and as can be seen the front is finished and ready to go but we are waiting on Excel (Japan) to get their butt into gear with the supply of rear rims. Other items yet to arrive are Norman Hyde rear sets, steering damper, air box removal kit, EBC front disc and a few other bits. Tyre is a Contenental Race Attack (Street), bars are the optional black Speed Triple bars made by Magura and the guages are Thruxton items.

Go Griz go!
I do reckon, though, that you should race it shod with knobblies. Just to prove to everyone that it REALLY IS a Scrambler underneath.
