    I think the only mod left (for now) is swapping out my mirrors. Curious if bar end mirrors work with the hand guards somehow? Or would I have to mount inside the controls?

    Can you confirm that specific model reader and TuneECU SW will work on a Scrambler 1200? I'd really like to know as two years ago I tried a similar ELM reader on a 2016 Street Scrambler and wasn't able to get it to communicate.

    Yeeep.It works on my 1200XE '20,without any problems with cheap 327ELM from Ali.It simply connects,and you have all diagnostic functions,except remapping!

    Bought the TEC bar end mirrors for mine and they fit outside the stock handguards. Didn't like them though, so ended up using the TEC mounts with Triumph mirrors.

    Hi,
    And you are absolutely sure you can reset the maintenance check?
    I wasn't able to do it with TuneECU on my Triumph Tiger 800 XC, and had to use TigerTool...

    TEC has mirrors designed for the hand guards. I've been happy with them. They have a slight blue-ish tint and they weigh a lot less than the stock mirrors. They look pretty good, too.

    Does this actually work. I have the ELM327 dongle but haven't bought the android app yet. I have it on my list to buy the dealertool package but haven't bitten that bullet yet.

    Cheers,

    Sticking fog light switch. Just use some contact cleaner? Hoping not to disassemble.

    Yeah, or give it a scrub-a-dub with some isoproanol

    Yes, I have already done that and I have set a new service mileage.
    You can find Demo TuneECU .apk file,and try to connect with yours ELM327,as i do before buying App.

    I got the bike back from the shop a few weeks ago. It was the shift rod that had broken inside of the gear box. It took them a few weeks to get the parts needed and fix it but it's all good now...


    ...until a couple of days ago, when I lowsided again in a wet roundabout on what I think must have been a diesel spill :(
    Lucky enough I was driving slowly because of the rain, so no major damage except for a scratched bushguard and mirror, and I think the handlebar got slightly skewed. At least the shift rod held up, but I still have to take it to the shop again. 2020, the gift that keeps giving :(

    Even though not addressed at me - this answers my question. Thanks!

    However, I do have another - where is the diagnostic plug (sorry too lazy to pull out the owns manual or service manual)

    Cheers,

    Water in factory Scrambler foglights, anyone?
    ...and my turn signals.

    From just riding through a rain storm!
    (WTF Triumph?)

    Inside of the headlight.

    (I’m kidding, of course. I just amazes me how people would ask stuff on the internet instead of looking it up themselves).

    I think mine is in my taillight. I believe Triumph moves it around depending upon your area code.

    Thinking about tank knee grips for my green 1200xc, I found these brown ones that would match my Corbin perfectly, but would love to see pix of someone’s tank using them... anyone buy these yet?

    OR, any other suggest knee grips? Clear would be great too..

    Interesting as a pretty farkle but if you really need to steer with your legs you'll chew them up pretty quick I would venture.

    Yeah, probably too cute for me too, maybe a clear silicone something— that would let green tank show through as well.

    I may do the OEM pads. Look the part and should take the wear of years of knee input.
