    It's my understanding that this seeming contradiction is due to Triumph only printing the manual in the Queen's English. That is to say that they only have the one printed manual, but laws regarding warranties vary between the US and UK.

    Here in the colonies they cannot just arbitrarily void your warranty, the burden is on the dealer to prove that a failure is the fault of the owner before a warranty claim can be rejcted. Even then, other parts of the warranty may remain potent, depending on the nature of the failure.

    I.e. An unapproved aftermarket air filter could be argued to have caused engine damage, and a warranty claim for a new engine could be denied as a result, but the same could not be grounds to deny a claim for having rusty spokes.

    In the UK they are much more free to impose dealer extortion by requiring services be performed there, or else.:deal

    LSL frame sliders - look the biz :clap

    They have been remarkably effective - in 50,000km since fitting them I have not fallen off. :rofl

    I couldn't agree with you more, I like their '06 & '07 two-tones and the later silver/green and silver/tangerine too - they can keep their flat finish paint jobs. I got my '06 this spring and it had been changed from white/red to some tank/number plate/front fender that is mostly red with some white and tire track decals running over all three parts - would rather have the stock colors. Oh, well.

    LSL fit and finish is great.

    +1,000.

    Would have bought a Scrambler in a minute but the 2012 choices were so...uninspiring.

    In 2008 when i was looking for a Scrambler I was lucky enough to find a NOS 2006 model on a dealer's floor. Love the colour and especially the silver cases. That's my favourite of all the Scrambler colour schemes.

    Those '06's with the silver engines/cases were the best - in my old eyes! Great find! I think Triumph could sell many, many Scramblers if they produced them in those great two-tones and silver engines...

    Anyone had luck fitting black aluminum rims to their scrambler w/o breaking the bank. As much as i want to do it i can't seem to figure out a way to do it for less than $1000. Any ideas?

    So the rubber at the top and bottom of my headlight mount (where the tubes wrap around the fork) has worked its way out and the headlight knocks around while Im riding. I fixed it, and again they came out.

    Anyone else have this happen?

    Agreed...

    Planning to get a scram late this or early next year. Current colours are just too boring.... Heard that new colours would probably include "blue". Anyone heard anything about this?

    G'day Dave!

    I was just lucky enough to pick up a blue n white 06 from a 77 year old who was getting too old
    to ride 2 bikes and is going to only stick with his FJR1300...!!!

    My favourite colour scheme too. Did you buy the rear carrier/grab rail? Can you tell me who supplied it?

    Cheers! Scott

    Yeah, They're not coming off very well. I'm just going to go with "character".

    Riding from Tri Cities to Wenatchee, WA. I caught the sunset on one side of the river, the rise of the Super Moon on the other, and apparently every single bug in between.

    Scott,

    That's a Renntec rack with a Givi mounting plate on it. http://www.renntec.co.uk/product1003.html

    Don't know who carries them in Oz, but I got mine from New Bonneville in the US.

    Hi guys, i'm in the process of customising my scrambler and have the intention to fit an aftermarket speedo to clean up the bars. I'm just having difficulty trying to figure out if mine has CANBUS wiring. I own a 2009 EFI scram. Any idea how to find out if its CANBUS or not? Thanks
