Sorry I don't know.
When I brought it to the powder coat guys, it was chrome.
And when it came back it was black

I have the Bitubo cartridge in front too. My spring rate is .85 and I weigh 195 lbs.

Can you tell me what your spring rate is? And, how many turns in from zero preload are you running? (the preload range is 0 to 15 turns, I believe).

I weigh 170 lbs: with the same spring rate (.85) I have kept the preload at zero.

Think the rack has been sanblasted, before powder coating.
Congratulations! Looks very nice! I like the seat too..

It can be done.
Butt if you should for example jump the bike, the chain can hit the frame and the swingarm.
I had made a nylon chainroller to protect the frame.
Thanks Extreme...
Yesterday I measured with 340mm shocks (Bonnie) and 360mm shocks (Scrambler): there is only a little difference, I hope that with 390mm shocks there is no need to add a chainroller.

In any case, I think that at first I'll can try with a rear sprocket bigger.

I ruined my rear pegs in an accident a while back. But now want to carry a passenger. The cost of new rear pegs is $300+. Is there a better solution - all I have left is the holes where the peg holder bolted on.


......Ok I found some replacement pegs which might work. They come with 10mm and 12mm bolts. Does anyone know the diameter of holes for the rear pegs- I think they may be 8mm but not sure. I may have to drill them out.

Scrambler saddlebag

Like a lot of fellow Scrambler owners, I am looking for a saddlebag solution that will be functional as well as stylish - that is to enhance the look of the bike. I came across a product from Klicbag and was wondering if anyone had gone this route and had some photos to share - the pics on their website do not show the bag on a Scrambler - would appreciate any info. Thanks.

The diameter of holes, just measured, is 10mm.

But... $300 for the stock rear footrests? Look here http://www.worldoftriumph.com/triump...lock_03=233015

I think that 390mm shocks won't give you any problems.
You might have to change the front and rear sprocket.
I use 435mm shocks and lengthened the swingarm 49mm.
This gives it a 260mm ground clearance.

Their bracket should work on the left side, won't on the right. The bag does not seem to be well supported for it to hold much weight - but maybe that doesn't matter to you. To me it looks like the best brackets currently available for Scramblers are those from MetalMule - they have a U.S. rep. Their brackets are not cheap, but they are strong. You also might want to touch base with HappyTrails in Idaho - they might have something or be able to make a suggestion.

Ciao Albert ;)
Front and rear brake discs are produced by an italian factory (ITAparts, Lecco, http://www.itaparts.it/dischi_freno_kit.html).

Note that the front disc is 320mm: I used the Thruxton outer tube with the Scrambler inner tube in order to replace the 310mm stock front disc.
But, apart from the size (310 or 320mm) these discs are perfectly compatible with the front wheel hub.

Also the Pretech is compatible with Triumph outer tube, and no needs adaptations.

The plate holder it is a "vintage replica" of older enduro rubber plate holder, and needs some adaptations (but also the rear mudguard isn't OEM, then...................... )

I'm really thinking in taking my car to visit you this holidays...!

So you're using discs for Beta Enduro in 320 mm on front... and same as OEM in rear, no?

And the tube, you just changed the outer tube and used the rest of your fork, never tought it was possible!

Can I copy your brakes?
