2010 Scrambler Mirrors

Hey, I just picked up my bike and the previous owner swapped the stock mirrors for bar ends. Stock mirrors can't be found and bar ends are kind of a pain to me. Anyone have a pair of stock mirrors or at least a suggestion on a good replacement mirror?

In my experience stock mirrors can't be found because they rust (mostly the stalks) faster than they can build them. I haven't sourced replacements but would not buy more stock mirrors even if I could get them cheap!

I've got a pair of stock 07s, not sure if they fit but I bet they do. I'd be willing to switch for your bar ends. Shoot me a PM if interested.

as for the starting issues, I had them in SPADES...a lot of city riding, short stints between stops and starts, did not help me any.

I finally replaced my R/R with the Rick's MOSFET unit and have not had any issues since...I am a very happy man, should have done this years ago.

I have a 2009 EFI.

My brother's 2012 EFI has no such issues in the same kind of conditions, me thinks Triumph sorted out the R/R issue sometime after 2009.

A lot of guys like to claim they have never had issues on their '09s...but then you find out their bikes are hooked to life support in the garage after every ride, and every ride is longer than 1 mile to work/store/brewery.

I bought a brand new set of black mirrors off eBay for $80. Still in the Triumph boxes.

I am not an easy person to sell asymmetrical ideas or goods to.
The need for pannier mounts to clear the exhaust has left me with little choice.
I purchased a set of Happy Trail S.U. mounts and installed them this evening. They measure ten inches from center on the left and twelve inches from center on the right. This is not as drastic as I originally had envisioned. The racks went on with absolutely no drama or frustration. They are as solid as my word and seem to me to possibly even create a stiffness to the whole seat assembly. I purchased the racks only, due to a bit of confusion on what I would end up being able to purchase to alleviate the offset to symmetrical requirement.
I hope that I can purchase a five inch on the exhaust side and a 7 inch on the shifter side to create a perfect balance in the universe. I can say with the utmost certainty that You will not be displeased purchasing these pannier mounts. They say they measure 22" wide and this is the case.
12" in case and 22" in mount = 34" total and that I can easily live with.

[QUOTE=RicoAJP;22467838]Hey guys, back in August I rode my scrambler 2-up from Toronto to California and back. It was an impromptu thing and was pretty rushed, but we definitely had the time of our lives. I recorded about 50+ hours of video and my fiance just put together a video of it. Hope you like it :)

Nice! That's pretty amazing 2 up across country. I give your girl lots of credit for riding on the back of the Scram. You need to come to the bennington bash next year in VT. It is great to be young!

Triumph replaced them for me gratis. The dealer did a good job of getting them and installing them before I headed out on a big tour of S. Utah.

Worked out great, even if I'm a bit peeved.

Then, on the way home Sunday, the little knob to reset the Trip Odometer fell off and hit me at 70 mph. Sigh. Things keep falling off..

thanks in advance.
(standard size rims)
I don't like the Shinko 705 front much. Love it for the rear. I seem to get some wobble with it on the front when I'm going 70-90 mph.

WOW, that is a beautiful scrambler. Any chance you have a list of mods done to the bike? Who makes that seat? Need to get my hands on one of those, it looks comfy.
