last pic ....

So I could just machine off the few thou that interferes but for a $900 investment this seems wrong! Any ideas?

Returning it from Austraia is a pain!

I would email them first to see what they have to say.

Yeah, it changed when they fitted the efi couple of years ago. Keep up old boy.

It might be a pain but when you've paid that sort of money........

Phone them first. Send them the pictures by e-mail second. Then, if they can't suggest anything, it's down to the post office.

Finally my new Scramb arrived so I could start to mount some of the extras

Love the Arrow look



Ohlins fitted to my weight.


Crash bars on, skid plate next.

Looking good.

Just one tip.........give all the bolts holding the heat shields on a tighten. I lost one of mine pretty soon after fitting because they were all quite loose.

Q: after fitting a arrow exhaust, what mods need to be done to the efi or carbs to make it run correctly? Henry II, I am very jealous of your bike. I am riding an 06 klr and a honda cb550 right now which I really like, but am lusting after a scram.

I just today went out for a ride on the Scrambler. First time in weeks. My K&N oil filter was leaking oil around the nut! I must have pinched it when I had it up on the motorcycle lift in the garage. I'm positive it wasn't leaking before today and I did not hit anything to cause it to leak.

No more K&N filters for me. I'll run down to the auto parts place and pick up a Fram PH6017A and some more oil. IMO, the K&N filter is NOT a good choice for these bikes.

Now I have to go degrease my rear wheel.

Could someone tell me what is wrong with using the stock Triumph oil filter?
I have used nothing else since I bought my Scrambler and I have never had a problem with any of them. Is there a specific reason not to use them, or is it just personal choice?

I don't think there is anything wrong with them. It's just easier to get another make at the parts store versus a dealership. My dealer is almost 2 hours away.

Ah ok I get that, my dealer is just over an hour away from me. Thing being the ride up there is a good one, plenty of curvy roads to play on. So I don't really mind the ride at all, Even if I did I could always buy 2 or more filters while I was there....

I sure you guys are going cheap on the filters, but why not buy several at a time?
Lets see, 15,000 miles at 3000 per oil change, get five!
