Nice photography..Nice Bike!
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.
What is the tail light and signals on this bike?
Have built my wheels finished Think they look pretty good too.
>>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.
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...
Very nice.....post a pic when you get the wheels mounted.
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.
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.,
I use a jack that let me lift the hole bike.
OK.>I don't know what I was thinking last night..guess I was over tired..>Took me about 1 min to figure it out this am..I was approaching the bike from the wrong side !; Doh.
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 .
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
picked mine up today, in the rain. only had a chance to get it into the garage and take a crappy cell phone pic.
i blame you lot. i love this bike.
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.
Fine countryside Dazzer. Keep after it.
Danger Dave, you are dangerous. Look what you have started...
Grizz. - keeper of the flame.
You have taken the Scrambler to parts of the world (& track) where people didn't think it should belong, represented, and led from the front of the pack.
Sometimes I want a Scruxton, other times I want a Thrambler but I have always taken note of what you have achieved and smile when I realise it all started with the same easy to love bike.
I'm going to buy a Thruxton soon but keeping the Scrambler, wife does not understand why I want both or worse why I want to keep the XR & XT as well...women just don't get it.
I told her I might be a bike slut but I'm a 1 women man so be thankfull for what you got !!!
Don't know if the Thruxton will bring as many smiles to the dial as the Scrambler but looking at it will
i have some rox risers i want to put on my bike, but have a silly question first. there are "caps" in the bolts of the handlebar clamp. I havent been able to get a screwdriver under them to pop them out and before i get really medieval on my one day old bike, thought i'd ask you lot what the trick was?
