    Are you speaking about "Scramble me"?
    Nice video but not new. I was thinking he has made a new one. I will enjoy a new one as nice as the first.

    I'll try to reply to your questions

    Of course, without problem you can change the 340mm Bonnie rear shock with 360mm Scrambler shocks (or better like Ohlins and many others); you can also mount the Scrambler inner tube on Bonnie outer tube, and adopt better springs .
    But… besides the (poor) performances of standard Triumph suspensions, you must consider that ground clearance and particularly travel suspensions are inadequate to a REAL and intensive use on off-road.

    Yes with 2to1 Arrow, Zard and others…

    Whitout changing the engine with a 270 degree, you’ll never obtain the scrambler torque.
    However, in my opinion Bonnie torque it is yet adequate, anyway you can try with a 17T front sprocket (I think 16T it’s too much little... in this case I suggest to change the rear sprocket)

    Ok… you can:
    - Mount a 1’’ (25mm) handlebar
    - Mount a 28,5mm handlebar changing the risers
    - Mount a 28,5mm handlebar modifyng the Triumph risers (look mine)

    No problem for the bracket (for example the 2to1Zard it’s complete of his bracket); concerning the right cover you can cut the Bonnie right cover (look mine)

    That's all, I think ;)

    Ciao Extreme, your work it's really interesting! :clap

    I'm thinking - from some time - to raise the Scrambler too.
    My goal it is to find a little bit of ground clearance and above all a longer suspensions travel... but not too far from standard.
    I found a KTM W.P. upside down front fork (travel 140mm) that raise the bike of 55mm, it must be coupled with a pair or 415mm rear shocks (travel 120/130mm... I'm still looking for them!).

    But I have also some doubt, concerning the work of the chain with new bike dimensions.
    How work the chain on your bike with new suspensions? Have you some pic of chai detail?
    Also, the idea of chain-tensioner it is interesting: some detail?

    Thanks in advance ;)

    Yes, thanks, I've seen it, but not so perfect as the first one, in my opinion.

    Amazing bonnie! If I may ask, what mirrors are those? They are nice - not too much deviation from stock but much cleaner.

    Of course you can ask!
    They are "enduro" FOLDING mirrors, founded in a little shop here in Italy.
    More more cheaper than stock mirrors (15/20 euro vs 150 euro!!!)

    You can find (and buy) here, for example.

    They are "enduro" FOLDING mirrors, you can found also on ebay.com (item location "worldwide") using key "specchietti enduro ripiegabili"

    Much cleaner and much much cheaper than stock (in Italy the pair 15/20 euro vs 150 euro!!!).

    I'm still working on the chaintensioner.
    So I don't have any photo's at this moment.
    If you want to raise your scrambler, you will need a chaintesioner.
    Otherwise the chain will be to loose when there is no load on the bike and to tight when there is.
    I will make some photo's as soon as I can.

    Rhodie (I think) over on triumphrat (here too I think) had some YSS 415mm shocks put on the rear of his Scram without a problem. Looked really good too. I'm going to put some 395mms on mine soon.

    Great looking bike!

    What tires are those, and what size? How do you like the Bitubo rear shocks?

    I am currently serving in Afghanistan, but am returning to the States next month. I have been reading through this entire forum over the last 10 months, and have decided to buy a 2013 Scrambler when I get home.

    I was wondering what guys on here are paying "out the door" for 2012 and 2013 Scramblers. I will be purchasing mine in North Carolina, and I am having a hard time figuring out what the bikes "really" sell for, as there isn't as much pricing info on Scramblers as other bikes or cars (TruValue, USAA, etc...) I know there isn't much margin for haggling on these bikes, but I was hoping to find out what would be a good bottom price to shoot for would be

    ** Also, I will be paying cash, and another guy on my team is purchasing one at the same time, cash as well.**

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Tires are Continental TCK 80 (M+S), stock sizes (here in Italy you may encounter several problems with police and insurance if you ride with non-stock tire sizes).
    Not bad tires , but a little bit dangerous on pavement if wet.

    Note that I use tubeless wheels (Alpina STS System, like on Guzzi Stelvio), I don't know how this tires are on stock tubetype wheels... but think the same.

    Bitubo shocks, after setup of correct SAG, are perfect for me. Suspensions works correctly and comfortable. I tried other shocks (cheaper than Bitubo) but this are better.
    I coupled this shocks with pressurized cartridge (Bitubo too) on front.
