I'm looking at both of these bikes now as one will more than likely serve as my next bike. I find myself wanting the Scram but i feel like in the real world the tiger would be a better choice. what are your thoughts?
Ciao Vic,
I had a Tiger 800 too, bought when my Scrambler was "on working", sold when finally the Scrambler was "ready to rumble".

Tiger it's REALLY a GREAT BIKE, but without soul (IMHO)... Scrambler it's... it's....... Scrambler it's MY BIKE, "il mio ferro" ;)
I sold the Tiger one year ago, and I don't regret anything! :-)

Now I'm ready to start for the Turkey: I wouldn't use any bike than my old Scrambler ;)

Quick, and simple question: what year, if at all, did the scramblers switch to fuel injection? I'm considering picking a used one up shortly, and would prefer fi (I think?). Thanks.

2008 in Europe. 2009 in the USA.
I had a 2008 EFI. IMO the EFI is more easily tuned by flashing a new/different tune into the ECU using Tuneecu. There will always be different opinions, of course, but Carbs are really "last century" tech.

tank bag help

I hope someone with a triumph tank bag for the scrambler can help me out. I bought a used one and it did not have any directions for attaching to the bike. I did a search but have not been able to find anything. Could be my search skills. Can someone show or send a picture or diagram showing how it is attached?

If you have the part number, punch it in here...
http://www.triumphinstructions.com/
...and you'll probably get the original instruction sheet for it.


From Triumph's 2008 accessories brochure... Scrambler (+ Thruxton + Bonneville): Tank Bag A9510006

[Later]- Dagnabbit! Sorry - just tried that number there and it doesn't come up.

Or better go to 140?
Karoo 150 fits fine Had one on my Scram for my easter ride only lasted 1800 klms and worn out. In total 1200klms of dirt and 600 tar

I guess I'll have to extend the skip plate in the front...
I got some crimsafe mesh very fine holes stops mud an rocks hitting the oil cooler it's stainless steel powder coated black works well and you barely notice it on the bike

Where did you get that crimsafe mesh? I found their site but no way to find a distributor around NC.

Nice photo, but are you sure attaching the straps to the turn signals is the best idea?

Front forks

Dig my 2013 Scrambler. De-baffled the stock cans, K&N filter and a Triumph off road exhaust down load from the dealer. Runs bitchin but the front forks are ROUGH! Ive heard of some cheap mods by Black Tiger. Anyone care to elaborate a bit or possibly share your mods? Im on a budget so dont want to spend a fortune on USD or such. Just smooth it out a bit....

I went with Racetech Emulator cartridges up front and am pleased with them.

I have heard since doing this that the newer bikes had different settings from the factory. Try it anyway as it only costs a tenner and if you're really tight you can store the oil you take out and put it back in if you don't like the results.
