Hey fellas.

Been dreaming of a scram for a few years. Traded another member for one the other night.

I am excited like a little kid. But I NEED a front fender. If anyone is selling one please PM me

Looking forward to contributing here

Why such crappy colors for the Triumph Scrambler?

I loved the original two-tone white/blue and white/red. Now all I can get are drab, ugly, easily scratched colors. I want a new bike, I want it to be a scrambler, but the colors are just so dag nasty ugly for the last few years. Graphite. Black. Olive Drab. Give me a bright, cheerful, two-tone color please.

Charles.

So what do people prefer?

Engine crash bars or frame sliders?

I have heard bad things about the Triumph engine bars and I am trying to find something that works well to protect the engine. Any suggestions?

Do frame sliders work? Like the one here

Also, probably a noob question but I almost tipped the Scrambler over the other day. What would protect the tank in that case? Will the handlebars take the brunt?

Thanks guys, it's a little on the wild side but I wanted to do something fun with the bike. May have to lose those grips and go all black not sure yet.

I don't like the look of a screen but sure could have used one last weekend

Though obviously the link you posted contradicts that. When I bought mine and immediately had to go out of state for like 3 weeks and new it would be stupid to so the maintenance with only like 60 miles on it I called the dealer about that wording and they said "just get 500 miles on it and then bring it in. Ignore the manual"
It's my understanding that this seeming contradiction is due to Triumph only printing the manual in the Queen's English. That is to say that they only have the one printed manual, but laws regarding warranties vary between the US and UK.

Here in the colonies they cannot just arbitrarily void your warranty, the burden is on the dealer to prove that a failure is the fault of the owner before a warranty claim can be rejcted. Even then, other parts of the warranty may remain potent, depending on the nature of the failure.

I.e. An unapproved aftermarket air filter could be argued to have caused engine damage, and a warranty claim for a new engine could be denied as a result, but the same could not be grounds to deny a claim for having rusty spokes.

In the UK they are much more free to impose dealer extortion by requiring services be performed there, or else.

LSL frame sliders - look the biz

They have been remarkably effective - in 50,000km since fitting them I have not fallen off.
