    Yes, I'm sure
    On this web store, for example, yon can see three order options (bonneville, thruxton, scrambler)
    http://www.britishracer.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=104&products_id=908
    with three different codes.
    Shark homologation paper is only for bonneville type; in italian "Motorization office" it's a valid paper for thruxton and scrambler too, same engine

    Here you can see another scrambler with shark retro/bahia scrambler type

    I have been studying the pipe on Shining's bike and it is very different to mine. Mine has 2 springs joining the headers to the down pipe on the front of the headers, I think Shining's are at the back of his headers.
    Shining's also has a joint with a spring near the brake pedal, the one on mine does not have a joint there, it is one pipe from the headers to the silencer.
    I think mine is a bonneville one with some spacers to make it fit the Scrambler.
    But I am happy with it, and that's all that matters!:D

    I bought that 'fenda extenda' for my Scram. Does a great job of keeping mud and stuff off the motor and oil cooler.

    Just an FYI, well worth it IMO.

    I WANT this exhaust.
    I think I'm gonna try the individual homologation.
    I'm searching a retailer that has Shining's model on stock.

    Hello all!

    Been reading as much as I can of this epic thread, thought I'd introduce myself by throwing some more pictures in cos there's clearly not enough!

    Became a Scram owner 22nd December, and it's been doing sterling work as my commuter - my other bike, the "winter hack," has packed up! Cue much polishing of chromey bits against the evils of road salt, glad the novelty hasn't quite worn off... yet.

    Purchased like this:

    But within a week the aftermarket "plastic coat" on the chrome wheels had come off the rear rim, so have exposed the rims and left it as is:

    Photos taken around Kent and at Biggin Hill Airport. Tenuous link -the call for pilots to take off - "SCRAMBLE!" :p

    Thanks for being a great resource! I hope to enjoy the forum much more and to report on some proper adventuring! :)

    Tom

    PS: Haven't seen it linked on here, but I found it tricky to find a mesh grill which isn't the standard Bonneville 7" as I don't want to pay the £60 for an official one. However, I've found a chrome one for a Rover P6 should be the right 5 3/4" diameter. Have it on order and will report the results.

    Welcome to the forums! This thread is a great though lengthy read. So much good information to be had.

    Glad to see you bought the fastest color too.:D

    Hi all,
    Finally have Pics of my 2013 uploaded someplace to share!

    Second ride on bike, and first ever on dirt.

    I got 139 miles in on three rides, unfortunately the third ride was 40 miles in 30 degree weather to take it back to dealer... :cry

    Under hard braking the oil light would come on for a split second. Dealer thinks they have found the problem and should have the part to fix it this week. O-ring where the strainer/pickup bolts on was in halfway out, so under braking it'd suck some air from top of strainer which which would decrease oil pressure. Description sounds plausible, and if the new o-ring fixes it I'll be itching for some warmer weather soon!

    Now I just need to decide what I want to do for luggage.... A happy trail rack seems like a sure thing, but I'm not sure if I want to go with their boxes, or maybe a set of Wolfman Monarch bags... So many choices! It's a good thing I didn't buy a bike that has thousands of options like a g800gs, my brain may have exploded!

    Cheers!

    I have asked Raish and they said there's only one model that can be mounted straight or up. :huh
    I don't trust.

    Finally got all the pieces needed to get this together. Pulled ideas from fellow thread scramblers. Not the prettiest thing in the world, but eliminates those 'I have to turn around or else I'll run out of gas' moments, so it's worth it to me.
