Nope.

They were the find of the century for me. I've found some similar sets, but not another pair like these.

Good luck!

Hello there,
concerning the open pipes on the TR 6/T 120 scrambler: have a go with these guys!
http://www.motorcyclewebsite.com/armours-ltd
Take care, my computer from the stone age couldn't handle their site. But that has nothing to do with their products and their quality but with the amount of bites or their presentation.
They offer solutions for nearly every exhaust-problem with brit-bikes. Many of my German brit-bike-friends are satisfied with their pipes and silencers for their old bikes.
I have to admit, I don't know, if this also applies to the new ones ...
Kind regards, Bambi

Sorry,
I got to 'repair':
This is the link to their home-page ...
http://www.skiddersmusic.com/Armours/Home.html
Bit confusing because of the title ...
Cheers, Bambi

Question Need help... no start electrical issue

Need help... no start issue... elecrtical

I have a feeling and am hoping this is a simple issue.

I installed a lucas style tail light and turn signals the other day.
Blew out a couple of fuses for the turn signals in the process.
Replaced all fuses and buttoned everything up.

Now bike wont start.

Turn key
All lights go on
Fuel pump cycles
But when I hit the starter button... I get a "ckunk" from around where the battery is and dash lights click off.
A few seconds later... lights reset and fuel pump cycles... hit starter and "clunk"

Any ideas?

I know my way around bike, but have spent 10 years dealing only with I4 Jap bikes. To me it feels like an inertia switch or something stupid that got flipped and needs to be reset.
Thanks

Is the kill switch set on off or run? This simple thing baffled my neighbour for a whole weekend.

I dont think the starter will spin with the kill switch off.

Have you checked your battery voltage ? It should be around 12.6 volts. Or possibly a bad connection at the battery can cause similar problems.

battery short circuited???

i've had similar happen - the battery still shows god voltage - but if you were to load test it, it would fail...just make sure you know the CCA of your battery before having the auto parts person do the test...
hope this may help - it's happened to me...

Do you know (for sure) why you blew those fuses? You may still have something not quite right in the wiring, which (getting to your problem) has drained the battery below the point where it has enough energy to handle the load of the starter. What would happen when you hit the button is the battery voltage would drop to the point where the ECU resets (taking out lights, etc.), then the load goes away, battery recovers after a brief pause, and the ECU comes back along with the lights, etc.

Put a battery tender on it. If the tender never indicates full charge, you have something loading down your electrical system.

I'm glad I have an '08 - before there was an ECU to worry about.

Bingo! Sometimes I can be so smart and then so stupid. Put it on the charger overnight and presto! Vroooom! patato-patato-patato-patato

In my defense, this is all new to me. On any other bike (Jap Sport) I've owned, when the battery is too low to start it tries to crank and makes the typical dead battery noise. The ECU reset totally threw me off. Now I know!


Ok-this made me feel better!

None of my bikes have all them fancy 'lectronics; but I did a quick Google on 'Triumph Scrambler Check Engine Light'. Seems you're not the only one. My bet though, is that when the ECU got reset, it set a condition that caused the CEL to come on and stay on until it gets reset.

If I knew how to reset it, I'd tell you. Anyone?

It looks like people are saying "3 run cycles" and it will fix itself.
Some said disconntect battery for 30min.

I rode to work... thats one cycle.

Does the Arrow pipe stick out as far as the stock pipe? I really like the look of the Scrambler, but then I go to sit on one and that stupid pipe bangs into the inside of my right knee. I think that would get pretty annoying really quickly.
