    Cool, Can you still get a Scrambler with shiny paint? I thought they were only available in matte colors now?

    This is my first post in this thread so I thought I would put a pic of my Scrambler.

    This is my second Scrambler, the first was an 07 and I traded it for a Street Triple which was a great bike but I always longed for another Scrammie.

    Its a 2010 left over. It was a dealer demo and has 1100 miles on it. The price was right and it still has 8 months of warranty.

    I picked up the bike on Friday and I'm just pissed it's been so cold. I've been working on my 1977 CB 750 for the last year and had to pick something up to ride while I'm working, but 15 minutes on the scrambler is all I need to know I'll own it for the rest of my life. Wonderful ride!

    Thanks Paul, it is the oem tires :-) I ride mainly on bad roads with asfalt, and maybe 5-10% on gravel roads. The tires
    have done their job and I am now building new wheels with new rims. And will change to the metzler series that was used on the tiger 955
    rear 150/17 :-)

    Hope to have them ready for the weekend

    Marc,

    I'm glad you like the pipes. Rejetting is a pretty straight forward process. AI removal doesn't really effect the jetting much, but the free breathing exhaust will. With a carb bike, you'll have to allow for the elevation where you ride the most. For example: I live at 2300' elevation and frequently ride in the Blue Ridge Mountains up around 5000' to 6000'. I'm running Arrow exhaust with the db killer, no airbox mods except snorkel removal, and 118 main jets. So far, I've done nothing with the idle mixture screws.

    Now, my Bonneville has Arrow exhaust (w/o db killer), airbox removal kit w/K&N pods, 138 mains and 42 pilots, and a Triumph Twin Power modified ignitor. If you like to tinker, these bikes are great. I wouldn't worry so much about finding a good dealer mechanic unless you need warranty service. Find yourself a good tuner who can help you dial in the carbs. There's so much power that can be squeezed out of these motors without having to break into the motor. They just need to breathe.

    Good luck, and enjoy that Scrambler!

    Joe883, I thought that this sidecar would fit my needs if i made it so the front grab handle and the box was removable. Also you could add second padded box on the hack to raise the kayak if you have a problem with approach angles. It would be very versatile.

    Been drooling over this bike for months and traded in my old shadow (boring) for my new scram :clap brand new. Bone stock with just an engine bar and skid plate.
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    I have some plans for the bike but really could use advice. ill start off small. I'm not crazy about the stock tail lights....I think they need to go.:evil

    (BTW How do i get pics up here i tried but it said something about too much text)

    WOW a 1000 pages.
    Congrats to everyone who buys into the Triumph Scrambler mystique.
    Modern nostalgia that grabs attention.
    Fun bike. Handles well enough. Goes fast enough. Comfy.
    Gaining a cult like following... ...Multiple personalities. :norton:evil

    I got the opportunity to start posting up (with ownership) around page 430 (!) and thought it was big then.
    Thanks to all who do different & cool things to an amazingly basic bike.

    Enjoy, Triumph owners. :thumb :clap

    I always wanted to be on 1K page.:clap What should be done on this special occasion? May be a kind of suvey? Let´s say: WHAT SHOULD BE CHANGED ON SRAMBLER IN THE FUTURE?
    I personally vote for suspension, improved factory sound (if Ducati can do it, Triumph must be able too), rear break, signals, tail light, rack, luggage, two clock removal, mirrors, rims, triple clamp, headlight efficiency, gear shifter, break pedal, levers, regulator-rctifier & horn location .... generally minor issues. Scrambler is still gorgeous, even in the factory edition.

    I vote for better suspension, a 6 speed gearbox and an improved headlight.


    Oh, And Triumph offer the bike in something other than matte finish, Some of us still like shiny paint. :D




    I really like your TW rig Sandsquirt. That would be perfect for fishing and camping. I'm not sure I would want to bolt a kayak to a car however, It would be a handful in the wind. I had looked around for a wrecked Bonne or Scrambler to bolt my sidecar to but found they wanted more than you could buy a used bike with no damage for.
