    We all want the same: less weight,more power,better suspension.
    Talked to the dealer today and the problem is that the more power AND meet the emission regulations would be very hard with an aircooled engine.
    The only water that I want around the engine is when passing a creek...
    So: no radiator,no more waterhoses and let those beautifull cool fins stay.

    Question: anyone has experience with ceramic coating of the headers? (antiblueing,easier cleaning,good-looking...) Cpst?

    For changes, the first on my list would be a slightly larger fuel tank.... without affecting the overall look of course.

    Other than stopping more frequently for fuel than I'd like, I am really quite happy with the bike (and my own mods) as it is now.....for now......

    But even if they introduced some of the changes we've listed, I'd be unlikely to get rid of my current bike for new.

    Hey Griz - are those aftermarket wheels, or a fitment from something else? They look great!

    They are Carrozeria (but the spelling could be wrong) forged alloy wheels from the US. The rear wheel saved exactly 5.1kg and the front wheel saved 1.9kg for a total saving of 7kg of unsprung and enertia saving weight. Absolutely the best handling and performance gains to be had so worth every penny of the cost.

    >>1000 pages coming soon, maybe today! To the uninitiated it must be hard to fathom that a bike so apparently as ordinary as the humble Triumph Scrambler could generate such passion amongst the true believers! <<

    Entirely due to the quality of the first post. :evil
    I kid, I kid.
    It's still very gratifying personally to see that so many see what I thought and not the 'don't take it off your driveway' line.

    It is a combination of NEW SPARTO taillight and ARIZONA signals. Requires some easy drilling but genraly fits like a glove...

    Hi..New question. Anyone lifted / jacked up there bike with a MC jack; any tips?

    I was looking to lift the Scram with a motorcycle jack. Last night,I noticed that the kickstand sort of gets in the way of the true center of gravity, and if I place the lift pad right infront of it, then the bikes weight stays in the back.


    Thanks

    I have a bonneville. I have the large harbor freight jack, the yellow one. I put the back lift bar of the jack under the mount for the side stand. It balances fine and I can take either wheel off without blocking the other end. However, for major work, I block the other wheel and strap the bike down to the jack. It is very stable. If you leave the side stand out, it is easy to let the bike back down onto the side stand when you are done, just make sure it is all of the way out. I don't know why it would be any different for the scrambler.,

    OK, so I have missed out on a few Arrow exhausts on eBay and am want to get something for my 2006 Scrambler! Has anybody seen an exhaust that drops straight down from the front of the engine to directly under it? Kinda like the Desert Sled?

    So can we get some pics rolling of different exhausts on the Scrambler?

    After seeing all the Triumph lovers across the Pond where having to much fun on these Bikes, I decided to join in :freaky.

    I can't believe just how good the Triumph Scrambler is to ride. I look forward to your Post's and reading about the improvements you chaps are doing to your bikes.

    When I get some free cash I would like to change the wheels.

    Here is my Bike , photo taken in the Yorkshire Dales Today.

    Safe fun riding Dazzer

    thanks for the fast reply.

    Hope you don't mind if i copy you a bit. but since your on the other side of the puddle i think its safe to say we wont have any "Oh no we wore the same outfit" moments.
