thanks for the info on the oil screen - simple enuf. I thought you had it mounted on the outside of the frame to put some space between the screen and the cooler. I will put that mod in place along with the fender extension. Trev

Bash Plate

Where do you guys get those large skid plates? I checked New Bonnie and Bella Corse but couldn't find them. Are they a custom unit?

Where'd that image come from?

Is there some way to pop that huge dent out?

Thumb Come to me.....

Assuming all goes as planned, I am slated to pick up my new 07 Scram tomorrow. Its the faster, more desirable shade of green. I decided to go stock, and then add to the bike as needed.

This thread was helpful in deciding to commit to the Scrambler. I had been looking at the bike for a year and a half. Not seeing a large number of issues being brought up in this thread certainly made me far more assured of the Triumph's reliability. So, thanks.

Good to hear mate, you wont be dissapointed, i was the same.

You can read too much on advrider, every bike has been judged and a verdict been delivered by "experts", often before a bike has even been built!

I removed my AI yesterday, Scrambling just keeps gettnig better and better

Going through all the posts here, regarding luggage and bags etc, has anyone with the triumph number boards jsut tried thrwoing some soft panniers over teh top of them?

The exhaust isn't hot enought to burn a leg, so surely a simple guard similar to teh number plates wold suffice? Not ideal, but for light loads, I might give it a try

When I first got the Scrambler, I only had some old throw overs, that had woolen non scratch backs. (used them on my Daytona)
Rode on a couple of 500km rides, and the wool never got damaged, so throw overs work if that is all thats available.
(hasn't been this shiny for ages)

Congrats! See ya on the road somewhere or at the Raindog fest or PNWet fest. Deckside just got a Scrammy too. He's usually the guy on the side of the road who has run out of gas.

Pour the fuel out, then wave your lighter over the filler neck. It'll pop right out.

Picking up a new 07 model from my dealer soon!

Thanks!
Please tell me it's from CMC, and not PMC.

Either way - congrats.

Thanks. I went with CMC. And really, CMC's asking price on an 08 (I bought and 07) was $500 or so cheaper than PM. So, from my perspective, there is no reason to seriously consider PM.

I look forward to seeing it. I love a nice Scrambler.

CMC is a good place, and the home of the largest RAT group in the U.S. Always something going on..........
