Max be very wary of bracing to that exhaust bracket. I discovered mine had cracked possibly due to a fall by the previous owner where I suspect the exhausts got pushed inwards. Which is exactly what your luggage will try to do.
I welded in a bracing piece like this....


I would utilise one of the holes under the seat (those rusty ones bottom right in your first photo) and bring a strap out to your frame. You could mirror that the other side as well.

Sorry you're wrong.
IFAIK Ti cannot be bent like these are. That's why when you see a trick Ti racing exhaust they have lots and lots of little sections welded together to make the curve. As shown in these....

Hello! Just purchased myself a scram. It's an 06 with 1,900miles and I got it for a song. I know a stock and clean scrambler is nothing interesting to look at but I'll get it dirty soon enough and I will defnitly post pics. I'm looking forward to exploring the local trails on this machine, but first I'd like to talk to someone about having a quality bash plate made. So please, PM me if you think you can help. Thanks for looking!

Nice looking Dog!
I tried to buy a nicely priced 06 Scrambler before I got my 07,the 06 sold too quick. I like the shiny cases.
The skidplate on my 07 has a sticker on it saying it's from a KX 450F Kawasaki,it fits nicely,some holes were drilled to bolt it on but it looks like it was made for the Triumph. Im putting the Race-Tech Emulators in the forks soon on mine,should help the suspension loads.

Wow , A stock Scrambler. Never seen one of those before.


Welcome to the club. Let the Farkling begin. I have just went one week without bolting something on the bike, Maybe I'm on the road to recovery?

Good bike to find. Big dog

The bash plate only needs to protect the cases from flying stones so doesn't need to be that strong. You could bash one out yourself like I did out of 2mm alloy sheet. Yeah I know, not the prettiest but it works....


Or you could get the Grizzly additions like in this photo....

Interesting. My bad. I just know when I pulled the header pipes they felt extremely light, especially in comparison to others I've pulled off.

Thanks for the welcome and bash plate suggestions everyone! Now I'm beginning to think It may not be too difficult to fab up something myself. Thanks again and I look forward to following these discussions!

Rust never sleeps

The rusty rim job I can't believe the poor quality of the wheel builds as a mtn biker Im used to the odd crap wheel but at least there light. My Triumph rims both have rust even my 1978 honda trail ct 90 did not have the rust thats on my lower milage wheel get it together Triumph stop cheaping out on so many things head lights,wheels,shocks,etc pretty much everthing.Now come on I like my Scrambler however its low grade compared to low grade like stock klrs I've owned three and I know you can do better. Triumph don't build lemon Land Rovers figure it out now. I guess Im ranting how ever Im pissed about the Leaking valve cover gasket as well and having a dealer say it's not warranty is just the tip so figure it out please and thankyou.

That's probably because most Jap stock headers are double skinned.

Nice rant, agreed the rims are crap, I had mine replaced under warranty but it took some fighting . The dealer & Triumph NZ thought the claim was valid but all warranty claims go back to UK who refused the claim. Legal threats & some expert analysis as back up did the trick & Triumph NZ & UK jointly came to the party. Triboy a fellow kiwi has also had a rim replaced under warranty as have others on the Rat site. Don't give up.

Replacement rims were coated with Lanocote prior to fitting tyres so hopefully no more probs.

Anyone changing tyres should check under the rubber band thingo or make sure the tyre fitter does . I only found the problem when I changed my own tyres.
