Don't think so, sound resolves with clutch in. What i need to do maybe, is get up to speed hit neutral and kill the engine, and see if I can at least eliminate the engine as the source.

I also missed the 'at idle' comment - clearly not the sprocket then. It's just that this is a known (albeit rare) problem with the Tiger1050. I guess I'd be looking at the clutch itself then...

Scramblers look good in the mountains!









My wife and I started riding together thirty years ago and still enjoy it! The Scram just makes the rides better. 135 miles today, about 25 miles on dirt, and maybe 100 yards in snow! I was the only person on the Triumph when I dumped it in the snow... Only my pride was injured. Another great ride on a great bike. Longest two-up ride since the MCResources rack/backrest, and my wife gave the backrest her stamp of approval.

We did get entirely too close to two bears! One ran across the road in front of us. The other just stood there at the edge of the road looking at us like we were lunch! Forgive me for not pausing to photograph those beautiful animals! They really were good looking beasts.

Enjoy those Scramblers!

Did my 1st week long trip on the Scram earlier this month through VT,Mass, and upstate NY. Even hit Americade (not to many Scramblers in that sea of goldwings) A total of just under 1400 miles. Rode a lot of dirt roads. The new Avon Dystanzia's were great until it got muddy and rocky.

Here's was my bag set up. It worked out pretty good:

Wolfman Explorer Lite Tank Bag
Wolfman Wolftail Tail bag (on solo seat rack)
Ortlieb Quick Release Latch Dry Bag on Mc Resources rack and quick mount.

A rattle is mechanical but if it's closer to a whine it could be something resonating in the wind. Mine had the 2nd one. Seems after riding more mountain roads it doesn't happen anymore.

Hi

Always liked the way you have your bike setup. A quick question didn't you have a pair of Motrax Hootaz fitted; didn't they work out?

Cheers

Brake light

Hey so I don't like the big old factory turns, so I simply disconnected them and removed them. Now I only have running in the rear, no brake.

Ideas?

thanks, so you saying the brake light circuit is dependent on having turns plugged into the factory harness?

I want to run without turns

I cant see where removing the turn signals would kill the brake light. I remember there are four wires in the harness, two go turn signals, two for brake and taillight.

Are you positve your filimant for the brake side of the lamp isnt burnt out. Next step would to put a test light on the wire for the brake to see if it is getting power.

Looks good Cooler King. Great name BTW! I've done Americade twice, both times on borrowed bikes and both times on different Triumph 885 Legends as part of the Rocket III owners group. I was only thinking the other day how cool it would be to do it on a Scrambler. Both times we stayed at Black Mountain Ski resort about 50 miles north of Lake George. Absolutely a beautiful part of the world. I hear that next year they are going to be HQ'ed at Henry's Fort right on the lake near the Tour Expo instead of the Roaring Brook Ranch.

Test light

So i removed the front and rear turns. Put everything back together without altering any factory connectors. When I engage the turn signal switch the 10 amp fuse for the turns and the brake pops and the brake light is inoperable.. So as long as I never bump the turn signal switch on the bars the brake light works.

Wah?

I had a problem like that after removing the globe/ bulb on a rear flasher...the globe holder is rubbish & the earth tag bent touching the postive terminal & blowing the fuse.
