    Their bracket should work on the left side, won't on the right. The bag does not seem to be well supported for it to hold much weight - but maybe that doesn't matter to you. To me it looks like the best brackets currently available for Scramblers are those from MetalMule - they have a U.S. rep. Their brackets are not cheap, but they are strong. You also might want to touch base with HappyTrails in Idaho - they might have something or be able to make a suggestion.

    Ciao Albert ;)
    Front and rear brake discs are produced by an italian factory (ITAparts, Lecco, http://www.itaparts.it/dischi_freno_kit.html).

    Note that the front disc is 320mm: I used the Thruxton outer tube with the Scrambler inner tube in order to replace the 310mm stock front disc.
    But, apart from the size (310 or 320mm) these discs are perfectly compatible with the front wheel hub.

    Also the Pretech is compatible with Triumph outer tube, and no needs adaptations.

    The plate holder it is a "vintage replica" of older enduro rubber plate holder, and needs some adaptations (but also the rear mudguard isn't OEM, then...................... :D)

    Ciao Sam :)

    I'm really thinking in taking my car to visit you this holidays...! :eek1:eek1

    So you're using discs for Beta Enduro in 320 mm on front... and same as OEM in rear, no?

    And the tube, you just changed the outer tube and used the rest of your fork, never tought it was possible!

    Can I copy your brakes? :D

    You're welcome!!!
    I live in Cuneo (north-west): from Barcellona in 8-9 hours you'll be here :D

    Of course you can copy all you want :D
    Both discs are specifics for Triumph modern-classics (I don't know if can be mounted on other bikes also).

    Remember this:
    Scrambler and Bonneville T100 are equipped with a 310mm front disc
    Thruxton are equipped with a 320, front disc

    Brake caliper is the same on Scram, Bonnie and Thrux.

    Front fork outer tube is the same on Scram, Bonnie and Thrux, but - in order to use a 320mm front disc - the Thrux outer tube has the caliper connections 5mm higher than others.

    Then: if you use the Thrux outer tube on Bonnie or on Scrambler, you can mount a 320mm front disc :evil:evil:evil

    Ok!

    I asked about the Beta bike because I can't find in the website the brakes for the Triumph, so, I guess they're just made for you, am I right? If so, do you have the name of someone to ask for your discs?

    Nice to know about the 5 milĂ­meters!

    I'll talk to my wife, this holidays we're visiting Italy! :clap:clap:D

    :freaky

    Those discs are made for me and for other Bonneville Scrambler Thruxton owners.
    You can choose color (of floating disc hub), shape (classic, wave...) and size (310, 320, 330mm, ...).

    I have to search the name of person to ask... but if you prefer I can intermediate for you ;)

    Let me know...

    It's simple :)

    I took this pic BEFORE the installation of Bitubo cartridge :D
    In picture you can see the adjusting preload front fork caps made for Suzuki SV650: I used this caps (with Ohlins springs and cartdrige emulator) for some years.

    Good morning all!

    It's possible to fit a 150 Karoo T in OEM rim and without modifying the swing arm? :ear:ear

    Or better go to 140?

    Hi Guys, This is my first post so be gentle and let me know if I am messing up with protocol by diving in here:wink:
    I have been back and forth to this really quite incredible Scrambler thread over the last few months but haven't had the time to go from start to finish.

    Just bought a 2012 black Scram and have a arrow and single seat on it.
    First job to improve it is suspension. I can't afford Olins and am dithering between Hagon Nitros back, Hagon progressives front or Ikon equivalents. Theres not much difference in price so any views would be appreciated.

    Also is there much advantage in fitting thruxton caps and washers so I can fiddle with preload?

    Nick

    Welcome in here. :clap
    For the rear Olins made some classical look. The Works are nice and good too.
    For the fork, Blacktiger has a good sheap solution on page 238 and 255.

    I think it's possible.
    About Scrambler's rear rim there isn't problems: several Bonneville and Thruxton owners have mounteda 150mm tyre on rear.
    You could have only a doubt with regard to knobs overall dimensions, but I'm sure that can fit without issues.

    Ciao Nick, welcome ;)

    With caps (for 41mm front fork***) with adjustable preload you can measure the SAG and set the correct preload.
    I think it is more important than change the spring without the possibility to set the preload.

    (*** you can mount ALL caps for 41mm front fork, not only from Thruxton... you can find caps with adjustable preload for 41mm Kayaba forks... like Hornet or Sv or much others)
