What foot pegs are those?
KnL Footpegs. I rattle-canned mine black.
He emailed me and said "we also offer a oversize set, which has a bigger overall peg platform (where your foot goes). The oversize ones go for $129 due to the increased cost of the oversize material needed to make them from. They are 2 inch wide by a little over 5 inches long." Pegs are machined from a 1 1/8th pound solid billet of 6061-T6511 aircraft grade aluminum. The finished weight of each foot peg is 4 1/2 ounces.
Great service, fast and fit as they should. 10 minutes to swap out. You might want to lower your brake pedal and shifter a notch or two as these sit lower than stock pegs.
I have the oversized ones, and I really like them. I had them powder-coated black, which is the first time I've done something like that (purely aesthetic reasons). Quality piece of equipment.
Do those pegs still pivot up? I am asking because while I would love a little more leg room (6'4") I scrape my pegs often in some of the canyons I've become familiar with around here. The stock pegs do leave plenty to be desired, but they have that skid screw on them, flex/pivot up easily, and have yet to snap off when the sparks fly. If the pegs were even lower that would mean more scraping...do you KnL owners think they could hold up?
The pegs pivot up just like the stock pegs. They use the same pin and spring as the stock pegs. I have had those pegs on my Bonneville for the last 5000 miles and have been very happy with them. They have a much better grip on your boots when standing on the pegs in rain or mud. I do drag the pegs fairly regularly. They do not have any skid screw on them so when they drag the actual aluminum of the peg touches. The aluminum at the end of the peg is fairly thick and blocky (about 1 inch). So far I have worn about 1/8 inches of aluminum off the bottom corner, so I expect these pegs to last for years. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
I like the idea of powder-coating them black. <o></o>
twolf. What shift lever is that?<o></o>
I guess the other question is how do the KnL pegs compare to a set of PivotPegz?
I'm looking for a pair of stock scrambler headers. I have carbs so I'd rather not have a pair with the O2 sensors. If you have a stock set, please give me a PM. Also, I could use some stock factory exhaust shields. Sorry to change the subject of this thread. I really love my Scram and I'm looking to make her perfect. It's best to actually ask the other happy owners. Thanks!
Just purchased the MetalMule pannier racks. In a week or two, once I get my tax return, I'll be buying the Kriega Overlander 60, and then I think I'll finally have a good luggage setup for the bike. Just in time for the riding season
Love my Pivot Pegs off road and on. They never scrape. If you order them, you do not need those lame black rubber "toppers." FYI, they are expensive. Also, PP was having trouble fitting 2012 Scramblers a while back. Not sure if they worked that out. I think the mounts changed on the 2012 model.
Good thing mine's a 2010 model, manufactured in July/August of '09.
I've been thinking about the MetalMule racks for my Scrambler,so I can mount my Zega Pros on them. Will you post up some pics when you get them in?
Not mine, but I found these pics to be useful:
Yes, you could go over to Triumphrat.net.
Or you could go back to page 1104 of this very thread where I posted the exact same thing. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=20418306&postcount=16560
Incidentally, since it looks like we're getting good weather this weekend, I'll probably put the side cases on (Duratool cases - basically cheap Pelican copies.) I'll be using the Happy Trail brackets to connect them.
Now that you mention it, I do remember you posting it here. Too bad that doesn't show up in a Google search
Lucky you. Supposed to be in the upper 30's all weekend, with intermittent snow. Might be a good time to install an emergency start button. Bike wouldn't start on me leaving work today. Had no problems 30 minutes previously. Took off the side cover and used a quarter to short out the starter solenoid, and after a couple of seconds it started right up. Definitely cold weather related, but $5 at RadioShack should make it easier to deal with.
I'm loving the MM's so far but they are hideously expensive unless you can find a used set like I did. I only found one seller in the Western US and I believe they wanted $600 for the side racks only and another $250 for the rear rack (though I may have been mistaken and it might have been $250 for the rear rack and $600 for the rear + side racks.) Even at $600 for the entire set it's pretty outrageous - I think I'd be tempted to find someone to fabricate something if that was my only option.
AFAIK there's no other factory-built solution for the Scrambler, which is a shame. Even worse, with the new Tiger 800 sucking the air out of the room it's doubtful that any manufacturer will have any incentive to make something for the Scrambler since there's not much demand, it seems.
I ordered mine from a dealer based out of Florida. $500 plus shipping for just the side racks. Considering I spent $425 on having a custom set fabricated for me, and flexes too much for me to trust (there's no 4th mounting point to connect the two frames together like on the MM set) I don't think the price is too terrible. Sometimes you just have to pay to get quality.
So...I needed to drain my nearly full tank. Asked the wife to pick up a siphon tube while she was in town, and of course the guy at the hardware store just couldn't sell her a siphon tube, he had to sell her some gimmicky thing that you drop into the tank and shake up and down in a slightly sexual manner, which is supposed to build up pressure and start the siphon (it doesn't work).
The tube on it is pretty fat, so as I shook it up and down the best I could, the somewhat sharp underside of the filler hole scraped/shaved a bunch of plastic flakes off the tube and down into the tank. I didn't realize until I pulled the tube out.
Anyways...is there a fuel filter on this bike? Please tell me it's not inside the tank where the fuel pump is. I'd like to make sure I don't have a bunch of plastic flakes floating around my tank before I fire the bike up. Of course there's also a little ledge around the filler hole so I can't just dump some fuel in and then turn the tank upside down, as the ledge would catch any debris.
Not sure if this helps?
