My second choice gloss black , just means I have to spit n polish more often

Matt undercoat grey is the only other alternative till July 2013 when they change again... maybe.

Ordered mine and triumph delivered from Melbourne to the dealer in 3 days
So this is an old ad I guess? http://bikesales.mobi/bikes/details/?R=11546308

Triumph may have fibbed to me to save shipping it back east again

Chuffa it might still be worth a phone call

I have a pair of TOR's (Triumph off road) mufflers, they are noisy & to me make the Scrambler sound like a HD. I find the standard mufflers to soft & the TOR's too loud, after riding the Thruxton with Staintunes I removed the TOR's. Perhaps it just me, under load the TOR's are simply too noisy.

Hey Ferals,

Congrats on the scrambler.

I've run the staintunes on my 06 for years now. Very very nice meant to give 5 or so hp boost. The happy farty chub chub sound is just so coool.

I found the TOR's too noisy to and removed them.
I'm now looking for stock mufflers to do a bafflectomie.

R&G Crash Protectors

I'm leaning towards buying these, but can't find anyone on the web to say that they have fallen, and these things helped protect [anything].

I like the look of those, but I just fell over twice this past weekend with the stock Triumph crash bars and they held up fine. They were slow falls, however. Suffered no damage. Video of one of the falls is here:

There is one option, though pricey: Metal Mules makes panniers for stock scrammies that are bomb proof, waterproof and very good looking. You just have to be willing to pony up for them.

I don't know how much time it took you to synchronize "Rock Lobster" with the video so the "down, down" part came just as you dropped the bike, but I imagine it was significant. Very well done.

Do you have to get shorty levers to fit with the Zetas?

Also, Do the Zetas slide right into the bar ends with no motification? Thanks!

Check out the LSL frame sliders.

I've not crash tested them (DavoRallyFan has) but they look so bling.

I got mine from newbonneville.com

I saw those, but like that the R&G's stick out further and seem a bit sturdier.
They do look better than the R&G's.

I'm pretty surprised how little crash-testing has been reported on ADV and the RAT.
(I haven't read all of this thread, though.)

I put Zeta hand guards on my my scrambler but I used the "Bend" version. I kept my bar end weights and just used a longer bolt. I don't think you need to use shorty levers but I did because I like the feel.
