+1 what MrVern said. If it's tidy, use the savings to fit better suspension, and any number of mods that suit your style.
Warranty would be the only consideration that would lean me towards the new one. Check to see if the 06 has any left.

Scrambler price

Boze man, I paid $7290.00 OTD for a 2007. It was a demo with 2000 plus miles on it.
Also, I called Triumph USA, and spoke with their customer service guy. He said that the warranties begin to count down after six months on the show room floor. I suggest if you buy a "new" '06, get the VIN# and call customer service.
He said he would give an accurate time remaining on the warranty if there's any doubt about it.
I will need that warranty because I've sprung an oil leak above the drain plug, behind the starter. No worries though.

The money saved was put into suspension upgrades right off. Ohlins with piggy back, and race tech emulators up front. No issues with the heat from pipes on the right side piggy back.

That said, I want to thank each and everyone you who have made this improbable love affair happen. I owe you all pictures and after market reports in the near future.
Cheers to all, Curtis.

i just bought a leftover 06, brand new $7099. i also ordered up the thunderbike complete exhaust kit in chrome. also got some conti TKCs right off the bat along with the AI removal kit. the pipes cost an absurd amount but i rolled it into the deposit plus the financing which will be paid off as soon as my triple sells. the dealer told me it has a two year warranty starting when it rolls out the door - ill have to follow up on that considering the previous post.

either way, im really stoked! ill be picking it up as soon as the pipes come in sometime next week. ill post up a pic when i get it home & get the new pipes on.

Right. I think that's a good start. Maybe someday in the future a nice billett replacement. Too much money to consider at this point. By the way, my new Scrammy is the same color as yours. Your bike is gorgeous!

Could those that have geared up their Scramblers of Bonne's for that matter, post a summary of what they have done to their bikes in one post? and could the powers that be make into a sticky?

There seems to be a huge interest in the Triumph twin as a touring adventure bike, would be great to have a definitive Triumph Scrambler kit thread, with experience etc.....a bit like this thread but a be more organized and easier to use as a source of information

just a thought

What? You don't want to spend days trying to unearth arcane information from months worth of posting?

Panniers for the Scrambler (USA)

Fellas, I know the subject of luggage has been kicked around quite a bit. I e-mailed happy-trail.com to see about the possibilities. Tim Bernard said there was some interest, but not enough yet.

I asked how many riders would have to commit, in order to make it worth his time.

He said "10".

At this point, I don't know if that means "10" to fabicate racks, or the whole kit. But if $$$ is an issue for some, maybe we can spring for the rack design and purchase panniers at a later date.
I can't tell if it's the same "10" bastards posting here since I've been lurking.If so, I know at least half of you are overseas.

Some days at work I love trolling these forums, searching for hours for a small bit of info, but my employer seems to think I should be working... crazy world!

I am sure that between here and the Triumph Rat site there would be plenty of takers for reasonably priced hard luggage system for the Scrambler. (Not me - I am happy with the Ventura system ), so if all he needs is more interest I would urge folks to contact Happy Trails.

FWIW, Happy Trails folks have been very nice every time I have talked to them at events, and their products are of high quality.

Now, fill in your profile.

I would spring for the mounting racks. I don't know if I'd go with soft or hard bags, but at least I'd have a platform to work with. If you'd like me to send Happy Trails a mail, I could do that.

Pannier Racks

Taking matters into my own hands. Metalmule is the only company making racks for the scrambler. Out of the U.K., they are expensive.

Instead, I am ordering Generic Mounting loops ($39.00) and a Universal Mounting Kit ($69.99)from Moto-Sport Panniers. The plan is as follows: A machinist will build custom brackets (approx $400) for the generic mounting loops. "Davorallyfan" has the same set-up on his Scrambler and it looks good, as shown in this thread, [somewhere]. For Panniers I am using Ammo Cans ($50 for 2) which will be hung on the Pannier rack using the Universal Mounting kit. The advantage of the Universal Mounting Kit being that it makes the Ammo cans quick and easy to remove. The only question is do I off-set the left pannier as much as the right,which has to accomodate the high exhaust?


Some day down the road I'll invest in Lighter Aluminum panniers and when I do it should be simple to make them compatible with my existing pannier rack using another Universal Mounting Kit.

When I get going on this project I'll post some pics

We'll look forward to some pics! Just my opinion, but I woud space things out evenly.
