    Like a lot of fellow Scrambler owners, I am looking for a saddlebag solution that will be functional as well as stylish - that is to enhance the look of the bike. I came across a product from Klicbag and was wondering if anyone had gone this route and had some photos to share - the pics on their website do not show the bag on a Scrambler - would appreciate any info. Thanks.

    The diameter of holes, just measured, is 10mm.

    But... $300 for the stock rear footrests? Look here http://www.worldoftriumph.com/trium...hp?block_01=&block_02=1000581&block_03=233015

    I think that 390mm shocks won't give you any problems.
    You might have to change the front and rear sprocket.
    I use 435mm shocks and lengthened the swingarm 49mm.
    This gives it a 260mm ground clearance.

    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?
