Exhaust Comparison

Can anybody here give me a run down on differences in noise (volume, etc...) between the TORS and the Arrow?

Youtube isn't helping all that much. Google isn't cooperating too well either.

Thanks.

Matte green paint

Does anyone know where to get paint to match the matte green paint on the Scrambler?
Triumph doesn't have it and Color Rite does not list it as available.?????

A "good" paint shop should be able to color match just about anything you give them, but I'd kinda like to know too. After all, I do need a new matte green side panel.

3. Although they are small, my glasses wouldn't fit inside this pidgeonhole.
4. I drive faster and more careless with a closed helmet.
5. Being close to fifty I'm not that handsome anymore...B-)... a few scratches wouldn't matter much.
6. The fabulous and greatly admired Steve didn't wear a closed one either.
7. I have two vizors in my helmet - enough protection, I think.
Got to disagree on a few points there.

Motorcycles are not dangerous. If they are, so is every other mode of transport.
Its your choice to wear an open face helmet. Just as long as you are aware and accept, that should you come off, your face/jaw will more than likely come in contact with the ground. The gouges are there on the chin piece of Tsorm's helmet as proof of that.
I'm curious as to how you fit two visors on a helmet?
While a visor is good eye protection from impacting flying debris, its so good if you do a face plant into bitumen and continue to use your dial as a brake.
I'm not the most attractive specimen on the planet either, but given the choice, I very much prefer to keep my jaw and various other bits
in their proper place.

I'm pretty good looking so naturally I go full coverage to retain my GQ looks.

And I have used a few of my nine lives up already.

Racers were routinely killed in the old days from simple crashes that involved a bump on the head,pudding bowl helmets were largely cosmetic compared to a top line full coverage helmet of today. I would feel naked going down the road with my face sticking out to gaurd the rest of my head.
Granted anything that moves is dangerous but the rider is really the biggest safety feature on the bike,where you put yourself on the road and how you do it is what can keep you from having close calls all the time.

First vid taken with a ContourHD, riding my Scram up the A537 to the Cat 'n Fiddle pub on a dull day. Looks better in HD... No audio as I disabled it because the wind noise was so bad, so if you want a music background plug your iPod in. Sorry if it's boring but at least there is a nice collection of old Triumphs/Nortons in the car park at the end...

That color is a gloss matallic green covered in a matt not-so-clear coat. Not an easy process to apply and match.

So we can look forward to seeing you on the next cover, draped over your Scrambler...?

If you've got one spare I'd like to try for a few months please.

TORs are louder. The difference in the UK is that the Arrow is road legal, the TORs are not. I don't know the actual difference in DBa.

Oil leak on 2008 scram

Hey all, I bought a 2008 Scramber with just 1700 miles on the clock. I noticed some oil on the skid plate after I purchased it, so I torqued the drain plug to recommended spec. I just changed the oil the other day, replaced the crush washer and once again torqued to specs I'm still getting some oil leakage from the drain plug/oil cooler line area. Anybody have this problem? Any suggestions? is the recommended torque spec not adequate?
Here are some pics of the problem:

Try giving the oil line a tweak with a spanner. You'll have to wipe it all clean and let it run whilst you watch it to see where it's coming from.
