I just put a deposit on a new dealer demo 2010 (Gloss Black). I pick it up next week. Cant wait!!
That's a bike that gets out, it's no garage queen, VERY NICE HenryII.
Tell me about those tires on road and off road. Thanks.
Any stock DOT approved exhaust meets the requirements if the bike registered and titled for the street. Aftermarket exhausts and OHV registers bikes will need a spark arrestor.
Nice looking bike vite.
Those look like ComStar wheels, tell me it ain't so
Yes, comstar wheels from honda cb bold'or ....japanese scrambler
Sure look like Comstars to me.
Edit: Vite beat me with a response as i was typing!
I think they look good.
That's looks cooler the more I eye it, love the fuel gauge.
Thanks,the wheels remind me of 70s porshe carerra style
Now there's a quote.
340 pounds, gotta love it.
A couple of weeks ago, the girlfriend bought me a small messenger bag for my iPad. It looked pretty cool, and since it's made of olive drab canvas, I thought it'd match the Scram pretty well. So, today I went to Home Depot, bought some flat steel and some black paint, and fabbed together a mounting bracket for it using one of the mount points for my spare fuel can.
Works pretty well. Can attach or remove the bag without tools in only a few seconds, and impossible to come off during riding. It's not theft proof, but it's meant for communting to work, so the bag would be going inside with me.
Also, recently bought myself a GoPro Hero 2. Been trying a few different mounting points for it, but the headlamp bucket vibrates too much to use it there. So, I bought a few RAM mounts, and attached it just in front of the passenger peg. Took a short ride to Mount Vernon and back to test it out, and I like it. Even rode through a big puddle to see what a water crossing might look like. Once I get the video uploaded, I'll post a link here.
Saw this 500 at the all british day a few weeks back

I kinda wonder how it'd look from the other side of the bike, where you can see the other pipes too......
Can you post an image of where you placed the camera? Also, next time, it be great if you can level the camera rather than have it leaned out to one side...
Yeah, I know the camera tilt is a little annoying. I had it leveled when the bike was still on it's side stand. Tilt the bike upright, and voila! Tilted video!! Just something for me to remember when I'm setting it up again next time.
Here's some pictures showing the setup:
Camera on a tripod mount and a 14" extension rod.
Mounting point, on the triangular bracket holding the passenger peg.
Just got some new pipes and an AI removal kit. The pipes seem pretty free-flowing as I can see daylight through them. Is there a standard go-to carburetor set-up (jets and air screws) that I should use, or should I bring it to a professional to be adjusted? I guess if there's a standard carburetor set-up for an aftermarket exhaust then I could easily do it myself, otherwise I'd bring it to a pro who knows how to get an ideal mixture.
On a side note, can anyone in the north east (NY specifically) suggest a good triumph mechanic? Thanks for any suggestions.
Zdravo & congratulations! I regulary checked your "works in progress" in the garrage and I have to say again: Lubisha is a genius. Perfect work. I saw your bike last week near the petrol station and was just sorry I couldn´t hear the sound of thunder. And speaking about japanese Scrambler - your Xhaust reminds me a bit Yoshimura BTW have you solved the carburetors issues? How is it going?
I was out with my bike this weekend, still a lot of water & sand on the roads around the city, but I enjoyed riding downtown.....
BTW: Are U satistfied with those Dunlops? I am seriuosly cosidering them for the "tarmac" future.Realy nice pattern
Try Rockwell Cycles- they are excellent
