    Has anyone put old style, 11 or 13 rib gators on a modern scrambler? I've seen them around... would like to fit some to my scrambler in lieu of the oem ones.

    This is an example of what I'm talking about... Thnx :)

    What would be the recommended rear tire size for the 5.0 rim? I'm running 130/80 TKC80 now...

    I wish I could remember - I will take a photo and someone will know. There is a guy who makes custom speedo brackets for the Scrambler and Bonneville - really quality work. I also can't stand the stock speedo.

    Gators,
    I bought some from 4 wheel drive supply?. They are Rancho brand.
    I think it was less than $15 perhaps $10 for a set. I think Summit parts has them also. I used plain old zip ties. I think HF has SS zip ties for cheap.



    Good Luck,
    Les

    FWIW, I'm in the military and bought my scram back in Jan of this year. The discount is $250 for the modern classic line of Triumphs. You just have to show your military ID. The offer is good for active duty and retired members.

    Ok - here is my effort. After I hit a deer the bike was destroyed so almost everything is kind of new

    In my opinion, your 'giving' it away. I don't see you having for too much longer... If I had the cash I would be at your doorstep tomorrow.

    +1 I just got a Matt black 2012 a few weeks ago but if I had the cash I would be knocking on your door. That is a beautiful bike.

    With that mileage, 9k would still be a great deal. But, depending on how bad you need to sell...

    I've seen something similar to that in the past, but nothing as detailed and organized as that.

    Either way, once my friend showed up, I pulled off my seat and found the source of my problem: one of the cables going from the rectifier to my battery had come disconnected. Meaning that I had been discharging my battery the entire time. I remembered then that it was always just a hair too short, and thinking that it was something I needed to keep an eye on. I jury rigged it enough to get me home, and then drove to RadioShack to buy some stuff to extend it a few inches. (No innuendo intended)

    The next day, a new battery arrived from Amazon. Let it charge up overnight, and installed it yesterday, before taking it out on a ride. Ended up going further than I planned, 175 miles or so in total. Even hit the 7000 mile mark!
