hmmmm... this is hard to visualize. I'm not sure what pin you're referring to (hell, it may be gone as well)
think you could grab a quick photo of the proper set up and send it my way?

yes- this is good stuff. appreciate the feedback. the only snag in the plan is that the oberons require you have the rest of the footpeg assembly. which i do... err... almost. there's a tiny circlip attached to the end of the pin that holds the footpeg on. at least, there WAS a tiny circlip before i impatiently took the pieces apart and lost it. sure i could maybe find one at the local hardware store. maybe.

update on oem parts:
bike bandit sent an email saying it would take 7-10 days shipping AFTER they got the parts in stock. nope. i cancelled the order.
Triumph of Detroit said they a)had the footpeg in stock and would ship immediately, and b)didn't have a clutch lever in stock, but would pull one off a floor model and ship immediately if i couldn't wait for the next shipment.

+1 for Triumph of Detroit.

+1 for Firedawg who was gonna sell me a set of footpegs before we realized the insane shipping costs. he allowed me to save face and gracefully bow out of the deal after packaging them up for shipment.
he's still got em (and more stuff) for sale in post #9135

Remember in a pinch you can swap the rider and passenger footrests, they are interchangeable. You need a pair of needle nose pliers and be careful not to lose the clip for the pivot pin.

After using the rear peg for nearly a year, once I was ready to install the Oberons I couldn't remember where I put that pin and c-clip so I just got new ones at the dealer. Those parts are cheap and they were in stock. Also, I have broken that c-clip before, pretty fragile and necessary! I bought a spare and keep it in my tool kit. In case I brake a peg, then bust the c-clip moving from the rear to the front.

Hmmm... That's too bad. The K60's are/were at the top of my list for the next set, but 2500 miles on the rear is a little on the short side. But, if the performance is really that good, they may still be the ones.

I really overthink these things too much sometimes...

Mystery Ride

Just got back from our five day 1555 mile 'Mystery Ride".
We started In Seattle, met up with the ring leader in Wenatchee (and learned our route) and proceeded to ride through Pendleton Or, and on to Sun River, where we roughed it ADV style.
90 degree days, hundreds of rain miles, snow, dirt and Captain Morgan!
Killer backroads!

Geared up (19t c/s) my Triumph hauled ass, pulling mtn passes at 90 mph in 4th (I topped at 106 indicated on this ride).
I rode hundreds of miles at 70 to 90 mph. Easy.
1st still chugged along as I needed off road. No oil burned.
The Triumph does it.

People can gripe about Trail Wings, but I hauled through the twisties with the best and aired down for some dirt roads, slides, donuts, and riding to the bottom of a crater!
The Trail Wings did not let me down.
My touring set-up performed well (yes some mods will be done).
Gerbing heated gear rules.

Leaving my home...


I started my ride from the Triumph demo day.


The misfits.


Crooked River.


Vista overlooking Crooked river.


Boondockin it.


Twins...


Overlooking this huge crater...


And in it.


In between rainstorms. Love my Gerbings!
(on towards Lakeview in SE Or.)


The snow stopped one of my off pavement excursions.


And of course our killer base camp!
We sure did rough it.


Next!

Lazy Scram

Well it was a warm day so my Scram decided to lie down in some water to cool off. The usual damage - footpeg and brake lever broke, bent engine bars (but they protected the cases). Exhaust scratched up. Lucky really - except Triumph dealer is telling me the footpeg is out of stock until end June Looking at alternatives.

Wicked Spacing right footpeg out 1"

I found and used the suggestion by Blacktiger for spacing the right footpeg out 1"; he was dead on with that farkle. As he suggested I took 1" alloy round stock. Cut 1" lengths (he used 20mm). Drilled a hole through them to take the longer 10mm 1.25 pitch 60mm length bolts and the whole thing bolted up like it was supposed to be there. Just as a FYI, the 10mm 1.25 pitch by 60mm bolts are hard to obtain so I cheated and used hardened hex heads with a small bushing under them to take up the space in the countersunk hole (eventually I will find socket head 10mm 1.25 pitch 60mm bolts but until then this works just fine).

I always had foot issues on the right side. Since I made the farkle no more issue with the foot being cramped and as a bonus my lower leg is further from the exhaust pipe. All around a win-win situation.

I seem to recall that it was old mate Blacktiger.

I used 25mm diameter (almost an inch) x 20mm long. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...postcount=7752 Glad you like it.

OK this shows the springs and the strange bracket viewed from the rear....


This shows the pin that the bracket hooks onto, viewed from underneath, front....

Closer view....


Yeah I know, it all needs a good clean. At least it won't go rusty with all that oil off the chain around.

With this farkle you saved me a lot of pain in the right foot. It was broken and never healed right. I was ready to do some fancy R footpeg farkling when I found your post and with a 1/2 hour work my woes where cured; at least on the Scrambler.

2500 so far. I think I can get a little more out of it. Still very disappointing in the life of the rear. The front is wearing like a champ, just like I expected. I think the 130 must be a different tire from the 140. It looks like the 130 is the only one that has such a short life. I think I'll squeeze a 140 on the rear later this year and see what happens. I haven't read about anyone having complaints about any 140 rear on the Scrambler. Most people can't notice the difference.

Use the passenger foot peg.

Great pics, Max! If you were in Lakeview you were truly in the back of beyond - that is some rough and bleak country. Luckily your gear and that crude makeshift camp made it more bearable!

Thanks too, for all your others informative posts. Lots of riding and tweaking going on!

FWIW, I am running a TKC 80 in the front and a Tourance in the back and the match seems to be working out very well. The TKC is wearing extremely well, holds the road just fine and inspires confidence on loose stuff. The Tourance wears like iron. Put on about 700 miles this last weekend in a lot of twisties and noticed no handling problems.
