Yeap those are on backwards.
Got everything welded up today tomorrow looks like lots of welding and painting. Going to color match the paint and add stop and turns to the bottom rear of the cases!
I have "THRUX" coming for the red bike
The real world difference between the efi and carbed Bonnie variants is the availability of after support for engine enhancements. The reliability is generally the same. I have a carbed Bonnie and bought it specifically for the carbs- makes it easier to tune yourself.
The only thing of caution regarding the Scrambler would be the suspension. It's horrendous (all stock Bonnie variants are lacking). The power is plenty enough though nothing like a super bike, which I'm assuming isn't a concern for you. Second to the suspension, is the truly awful seat- it gets damned uncomfortable after a 100 miles or so. Plan on spending about $100 to get the seat modified.
The old arrow pipes chestnut - comes 'round again and again - still Baffling (te he) to some, (mostly US Triumph dealers who don't read the instructions that come in the Arrow kit.) I have the Instructions - with my pipe that I fitted myself. (simples )
Here is a scan of a bit of it.
which bend are those pro tapers? Been thinking about upgrading to them or possibly the oversize fat bars for a little different look, just haven't figured out which bend I'd like...
I never thought it was that bad until I started taking my girlfriend along for rides and the slightest bumps would bottom us out. I'm a big guy, she's pretty small. So once I felt that with the both of us on, I would notice it more and more when I was riding solo. And yeah, that seat is really bad too. I messed up my tailbone over a year ago (trying a handrail on a bmx bike and took it between the legs, if you wondered) and anything over 25 miles and I'm in pain.
I'll be doing some light engine work and then I think I'll need to take care of the seat and suspension.
Spencer at itsagreatdaytoride com is supposed to be real good at making seat comfortable while retaining the stock appearance.
The bars are pro taper CR-HI
Sounds great, Henry. But I was sad to hear you will be selling your cool Scram for now. I'm sure anything you build will be a beauty.
That turned out really really good
Now you can fab up a rack just above the exhausts to hold cans of soup; hot & ready to eat as soon as you arrive...!
That's what I rode on my last CR, loved them, wasn't sure how it would translate over to the triumph. I was looking at the pastrana FMX as well, just because they were a little taller than the CR's, but those look awfully nice on your bike!
Does anyone know if you can run the triumph city bag and the low sissy bar concurrently? I can't tell for, the pics if the dresser bar for the backrest will interfere with the connection straps of the city bag...
BTW, got my new Hagons on today. I'm gonna try try some two up tomorrow if the weather holds up.
I emailed LSL and asked how much these forks cost. Here was the response:
Cost for the parts Öhlins fork FG 43 with triple tree, adapter for the caliper and axle is 2.899,15 plus tax.
Set is a bolt-on kit but without brake system. Handlebar clamps are extra (67,20 ), choose 22mm or fFt Bar diameter. You need a radial caliper (100mm gauge for bore hole) and matching master cylinder from Brembo or Magura.
Not sure I understand all of it, but it's not like I'm going to spend that kind of cash anyway.
2900 euros :huh
I'd sure like to try them though...
I got around to installing a Seat Concepts cover on my scrambler today. Haven't ridden yet, but I love the added height and am quite sure it'll be a real improvement in comfort.
