FWIW, I'm in the military and bought my scram back in Jan of this year. The discount is $250 for the modern classic line of Triumphs. You just have to show your military ID. The offer is good for active duty and retired members.

I managed to lower the speedo and headlight by 2", I think it looks a lot better now.

Scaredofthedirt, chassmash, and gsuer, thanks for leading me in the right direction.

Bravo! Much better!

In my opinion, your 'giving' it away. I don't see you having for too much longer... If I had the cash I would be at your doorstep tomorrow.

+1 I just got a Matt black 2012 a few weeks ago but if I had the cash I would be knocking on your door. That is a beautiful bike.

With that mileage, 9k would still be a great deal. But, depending on how bad you need to sell...

I hope it helps you.
I've seen something similar to that in the past, but nothing as detailed and organized as that.

Either way, once my friend showed up, I pulled off my seat and found the source of my problem: one of the cables going from the rectifier to my battery had come disconnected. Meaning that I had been discharging my battery the entire time. I remembered then that it was always just a hair too short, and thinking that it was something I needed to keep an eye on. I jury rigged it enough to get me home, and then drove to RadioShack to buy some stuff to extend it a few inches. (No innuendo intended)

The next day, a new battery arrived from Amazon. Let it charge up overnight, and installed it yesterday, before taking it out on a ride. Ended up going further than I planned, 175 miles or so in total. Even hit the 7000 mile mark!




Haven't had an issue yet

Damn! I searched for a used matte khaki for over a year with no dice and couldn't hold out any longer so sucked it up and bought new. If I had better self control I would have waited and took that off your hands in a heart beat! You have done all the mods I want to do to my bike. I think that's a screaming deal, beautiful bike. Sorry you have to sell her, good luck with the sale. I'm sure it'll move quick

I've been following your problem. So glad it's fixed. There's nothing worse that NOT KNOWING.

I agree with the others, this is a gift to someone. Have you considered putting it in the ADV flea market? At least the folks might have a greater appreciation for what you've got there.

Scrambler on ADV Rider Flea market

Thanks so much for the kind words ad support about selling my Scrambler. Yes, I have posted it on the ADV Flea Market site and have gotten some interesting trade offers. I will really miss the bike and wish that I had more time to ride it. God knows I put a lot of time in on this thread reading up on how to set it up best. As for the price $7400, I think it is a really fair price and I will probably be pretty firm on it. If I don't sell it and up up keeping it, I will continue to Adventurize it with a fender delete, knobby tires and more BLACK.

Teeth to the wind,
Sno Dawg
