    Arrow exhaust on and remaped today. I tell you this made such a difference. First the comfort level is night and day now. The stock exhaust caused my leg to bend outward in a painful fashion. The new exhaust hugs the cycle and I can get my knees on the tank. Loosing about 10 pounds from stock v/s this exhaust was a nice benefit too. The sound with the baffle in is great. Take the baffle out it sounds like any straight pipe twin. The power increase feels good..it could just be the noise causing me to twist the throttle a bit more..lol..
    Over all very happy that I moved from the KLR to this. Night and day with build quality and hey no more oil usage!

    Hi.
    I just joined this thread and the forum.
    A few weeks ago, I bought a new 2009 khaki green EFI Scrambler, and while I quite like the color, I am thinking about trying to swap the tank/fenders etc for a red/white color scheme. This is what I really wanted in the first place, but I think they didn't offer that color combo past 2008.

    So, I was wondering if there was anyone out there interested in a swap of tank/fenders/covers? My 2009 has the efi tank.

    Another question. Has anyone here successfully swapped their efi scrambler tank badge for a "classic" badge, the one available through Triumph. There have been many threads about this on the Triumph Rat forum.

    Thanks and looking forward to some good conversations in the forum.

    Unfortunately a pre EFI tank won't work on your bike. The EFI tank is larger to accommodate the fuel pump.

    1st Post! Good to hear from you,Ive got the green/silver 07 Scrambler. Green has never been my favorite color but Im used to it now,Id have the green painted over in red given my druthers. The shocks have been the best upgrade so far on mine,not cheap but a huge difference in comfort and handling. Works Performance did a bang up job valving and springing these shocks. Today the windscreen goes on.

    I agree. I use a small side bag on the left side for raingear and tools, lite sleeping bag in the bottom bag, tent and sleeping pad on rear rack with a small tank bag. To me less makes a much more enjoyable ride.

    I'm not a Triumph rider, but I found this story about Steve McQueen and his '64 ISDT attempt aboard a Triumph. Not sure if this pic was posted but he was the man.

    I'm with you Max.

    I'll admit that I don't have any experience with motorcycle touring yet. I have done a good bit of backpacking. Smaller and lighter is very advantageous. I imagined solo touring on the Scrambler would work just fine with a decent duffel across the back and the ginormous Triumph tank bag.

    To each his own. :freaky

    Any after market honda CRF/CR/XR folding shifter should work IIRC. However, if you purchase one for a 50cc, get the longer length. I ordered one from ebay for a Honda CRF/XR 100 /230. It works great.

    I bought a foot of heater hose from the auto parts place and cut the appropriate length to slip over the knurled end so it wouldn't tear up my leather boots. You can see it in this picture.

    Yep as wiseanhyzer mentioned it's from a Honda, here's the eBay listing for the shifter I bought, that listing has long since expired but you should be able to find another one...

    Great Pics. Love the the old school helmets, I might have to look for one.





    Hit the " ton " on my bike yesterday on a long straight road with a 30 MPH tailwind. Some A-hole was on my butt at 70 in a jacked up 4x4, I still had some throttle left but I started thinking I was pushing the trailwings a little too hard. I have to get some better tires soon.

    he also had a keen interest in firearms and the martial arts.

    I got off work early yesterday, and being such a nice day outside, I decided to ride down to the shop that's working on my fuel tank bracket so that they could do a quick fab of the mounting brackets to put it on the bike.

    Traffic sucked, and I got hit with redlight after redlight after redlight, so I switched over to the interstate...which moved from standstill to 30mph, to standstill, to 50mph, and back to standstill again.

    About 2 hours later (or about 30 miles) traffic started speeding up again, and I noticed a car appear in the lane beside me that wasn't in the lane a moment before, and so I looked to make sure it wasn't coming all the way over into my lane (as I've seen happen time and time again.) Satisfied it was staying in it's lane, I looked ahead again, and traffic had slowed again, the distance I had between myself and the car infront of me much less than it was before. Instinctively I applied the brakes, and they locked up.

    A split second later, I'm looking down as my body is moving forward and to the right. Another split second later, I'm on the ground, sliding forward, felt my helmet smack against the pavement. I'm thinking "I'm down, and I'm sliding down the highway. Hope I don't get ran over. Maybe I can roll off to the shoulder." I roll on to my back, trying to get my feet under me. I put my hands behind me, trying to lift myself onto my feet...and then I stopped sliding.

    So, I stood up walked myself onto the shoulder, saw my bike already there along side 4-5 cars and I thought "the bike didn't hit all of those cars, did it?"

    It didn't.

    One guy was telling me I should sit down, another saying they've called medical services for me. All the while, I'm just saying "I'm fine," and looking at my bike wondering how I'm going to get the 30 miles back to my apartment.

    Long story short, I was able to get the bike towed to the shop I was headed to, and I was able to get a buddy of mine to drive down and bring me back to my place.

    Also...the fuel tank bracket looks great. Can't wait to get it onto the bike. :D
