Of course, without problem you can change the 340mm Bonnie rear shock with 360mm Scrambler shocks (or better like Ohlins and many others); you can also mount the Scrambler inner tube on Bonnie outer tube, and adopt better springs .
But… besides the (poor) performances of standard Triumph suspensions, you must consider that ground clearance and particularly travel suspensions are inadequate to a REAL and intensive use on off-road.

Whitout changing the engine with a 270 degree, you’ll never obtain the scrambler torque.
However, in my opinion Bonnie torque it is yet adequate, anyway you can try with a 17T front sprocket (I think 16T it’s too much little... in this case I suggest to change the rear sprocket)

Ok… you can:
- Mount a 1’’ (25mm) handlebar
- Mount a 28,5mm handlebar changing the risers
- Mount a 28,5mm handlebar modifyng the Triumph risers (look mine)

No problem for the bracket (for example the 2to1Zard it’s complete of his bracket); concerning the right cover you can cut the Bonnie right cover (look mine)


That's all, I think ;)
