The dealer installed two whole new wheels. The warranty is the same as every other Triumph warranty - two years, unlimited miles. I put 27,000 miles on this one the first year...I ride alot!

I bought my '06 as a leftover in the fall of '08. I searched for a new '06 when my original R&W '06 Scram and I got knocked over by a van in midtown. I found this one sitting on a showroom floor in Jersey.

As far as the spoke breaking problem - I did alot of research. It is most commonly reported on the rear wheel - left hand, outer spoke. That's where mine snapped. Turns out that the design looks really cool, but may put an unequal amount of load on half of the spokes. It's not from bumps or pot holes - it's from the transfer of torque from the hub to the outer rim, and it's on the left side (brake disc side).

I've heard of a few front spokes snapping. Maybe from the force transferred from the braking? I don't know any real facts, just rumors and common sense guesses.

I have no idea?! I don't think anything is too easy when it comes to warranty stuff. The front was a hassle for me - they wanted to keep replacing the brake disc, and they kept warping as soon as they hit 8,000 to 12,000 miles. Finally, they ordered a new front wheel hub (whole wheel). The process took a year! Probably would have been easier to buy a floating disk and be finished with it.

The rear was a little easier. I broke the spoke, the dealer told me that spokes where probably not covered, I took pics and the dealer sent them into triumph. My rim had been damaged as well as the hub when the spoke snapped at high speed. I guess Triumph has made a decision for this kind of spoke breakage, because they just sent the new wheel pronto.

The other differences between the '06 to '08 Scram's are cosmetic. Colors changed.

It's pretty lame, but when I bought my first Scrambler in the fall of 2007, they had two in the showroom. An '07 with a red & white tank and black engine and an '06 leftover with the silver engine and a blue and white tank. I had them take the red and white tank from the '07 and put it on the '06. I just didn't like the black engine. I got 11,000 miles out of that bike in just under a year before it got totalled in a traffic collision.

The '06 is the first and only Scram with a silver engine. I picked '06 because of the engine color. Seems silly to say it now, but that's why I picked it.

Whatever the reason, buy what speaks to you.

Wow!!! what happened to the right to choose?
The right to live your own life without interference?
this Cat is making decisions based on what he feels and wants,

he is not judging you people for your choices.
I'm glad I live in a place where I can still make a choice based on
what I want and not what someone else thinks is right for me.
the world is a dangerous place for thin skinned vertabrates and if you think
that helmet or that glove is really going to protect you from all the
environmental things that can kill you while your riding your bike
you truly are kidding yourself. in my life I've seen impalements and necks broken on people with all the " right riding gear on " sure it helps from the abrasions and craked craniums, but talk to a few E.R. room doctors and they will straighten you out about all the things that can kill you when you hit them, riding fast or slow. bottom line, live and let live. life is not easy, cheap, or safe. quit riding that guy's a## in front of you, and instead, invite him to sit down at the bar and have a drink. you will both feel better.
VIVA Freedom!!

Whoa ! I would have thought that would look good. But it doesn't, to me. Not at all.

I just don't trust a guy who's garage is that clean and organized! Oh, there, in that last pic there is a bit of stuff. Not good enough. nope. don't trust 'em.

whooa! finally done with all 599 pages after playing catch-up since february

New guy here, been riding a 02 Bonneville since 2006.
Love the Bonnie - but the Scrambler is a stellar looking bike!, my favorite the red/white 06 with silver engine.

Always wanted to do more gravel - and now that I've got intiminators up front, Öhlins on the rear, that the suspension is ready to take on some rougher roads without shaking my fillings or kidneys loose.

Lots of great ideas here re: farkling. Am going to make a bashplate and find some crash bars. And new tires. Have had good luck with my GT501's, but now want to try a set of Tourances. (If I had access to more gravel roads, I'd go for Heidenaus)
And have a 20mm ammo can collecting dust since before I got the bike - now I can finally put it to some serious use. Been using a Bagster tank bag, Renntec rack + triumph soft panniers so far. Vill be nice to leave the panniers at home, as those flop around too much, not very roomy , and in case of rain, the covers collects water from the rear wheel, so everything's soaking wet.

You would love my garage then, 800 square feet of complete clutter. I think a hobo is living on the west side of it. I used to have a clean garage, but now its just a place to store 3 cars, 4 motorcycles, 6 bicycles and all the accesories.


I hope He doesnt plan to flat black that sweet Galaxy Convertible ( 1961? )

Thanks, TStorm.
I'll give this to my dealer and see if he can come up with some.
