now to get that pipe right.
How many of you guys with scramblers have the Zard exhaust that goes under the frame like the hammarhead scrambler? How loud is it and is it bareable on long trips?
Without the "db killer" installed, it is VERY loud at high revs.
It sounds absolutely glorious.
With the db killer in, it's quiet and has an intermittent high pitched "chirp", that I found annoying...
I shortened the db killer about 1,1/2" - 2", and cut out the little bar that goes across the inside of the insert.
Now it sounds nice. Maybe a bit louder than is "politically correct", but not loud enough to piss off my neighbors.
Great post! On my HT racks I had the same experience with the rattling. I experimented with wrapping the racks themselves a few times with electrician's tape and found that this solved my rattling problem. For what it's worth!
Thanks both, I've give from not finding I've to having a choice, credit card at the ready.
Nice ride with my wife yesterday, perfect weather...
Rode her home 3 days ago and 180 miles of break-in riding so far. Keeping her between 2500 - 4K revs, no lug and havin' a ball. It's cold but who cares - it's a new motorcycle!!
phone pic for now -
Hey-can someone please tell me how to remove the triumph badge from my scrambler. I am repainting the bike and am getting custom lettering instead
or waxed dental floss if it's fairly new

Took the Scram out for a ride in Bahrain on Saturday. It was a beautiful day.
Lovely sunsets in this small country.
Beautiful pictures Two Moo, can you say new desktop background!
Not loud at all with the baffle in.................you will have to cut out the small crossbar at the end of the baffle or you will have the annoying "chirp" mentioned above!
Fun in the Sun, and sand along the ICW . Sorry no mountains or grass here, but it is 80 degrees and sunny atm. 800 miles on it since last week when i bought it. This bikes a hoot.
My Metal Mule racks and Kriega luggage came in a few days ago, but I spent the weekend out of the country, so I couldn't really do much with it until today.
The pipe-side rack mounted easily enough
but I ran into a problem with the off-pipe side. When I tried to mount it behind the footpeg bracket, the rack would push into the spring a fair bit. The rack itself looks straight, and since I remember the bike falling on that side on the highway a few years ago, there is a chance that the footpeg bracket was bent in slightly. I do have scrapes on my swing arm where that bolt sticks out at. A local bike shop suggested the same a few weeks back while they were mounting my tires, but other than the marks on the swing arm, couldn't find any other hints of the frame being bent.
The MM instructions mention that if I had the Arrow pipe, and had bought that rack, there would be spacers to mount the rack to the outside of the footpeg bracket. Since I didn't have that kit, I went down to Home Depot and bought some nylon ones.
Racks seem solid, and when I used them to pick the bike off of the side stand and shake the rear end up and down a bit, there wasn't even a wiggle of play in the racks. And that's without using the cross brace connecting the two racks together as a 4th mounting point. I still need to come up with a good spacer for that.
So, with a steady rack, I mounted the Kriega bags, the Overlander 60 set. I liked how adjustable the setup was, since instead of a bag, I could put on two Rotopax containers. Thats either 60L of dry storage or 8 gallons of fuel/water. Or a combination of anything between:eek1 I just have the drybags for now, but with the short range of the Scram, I'll definitely trade in one bag spot for the extra fuel.
I think I'm gonna have to take a nice long trip sometime soon to give this the proper workout.
Thanks for those pics, that's a great Kriega setup.
Anyone rebuilt their rear caliper? Mine is all kinds of mangled from riding in the rain and dust/dirt and it looks like the pistons aren't retracting: the piston side is worn down to 30% and the other side is at 90%, after about 5,000 miles!
I've got an Up & Over bracket on there now but it'd be best to refresh the parts to keep this from being an issue.
I've heard Honda ST1100s share the same brake caliper, but that may just be for the pads: looking at pictures online they don't appear to be the same caliper. Anyone able to shed light on this?
Lots of info here:
It's a sliding calieper and the pins need lubricating every few thousand kms i do mine every time i change the oil any brake specialist will have the correct grease
