Hey, nice temp fix! Mine fell off on the highway last week and I had to push on what was left. Luckily the Scram shifts easily.

Keep the pictures comming, I'm enjoying them.

Ooops! Thank you for letting me know! I will change that imediately.

How embarrassing. They should come with a carelabel attached where the right side is advised ;-)

Where did you get the mini speedo?

I went for a nice long ride early this morning. It's been too hot the last couple weeks here. Dawn patrol is great.

Thanks,

I worked with Dan at Traxxion Dynamics (www.traxxion.com) and had really positive results. Hermy's (www.herdan.com/bitubo) also sells Bitubo and their prices seem to be a bit better than Traxxion, but I didn't get a response back to my email till at least a week or two after I ordered from Traxxion. I've since heard that they do a bit better with direct phone calls versus email, so your mileage may vary.

BTW, I love my Bitubos. I went the Progressive springs and Progressive 412s on my Scrambler and while they're great for the price, I've been spoiled by my Traxxion/RaceTech front end and Bitubos on my Thrux.

Have fun...

Jason

I ordered mine from Hermy's over the phone. It wasn't a quick process and they had to order the Scrambler/Thruxton length with black springs for me. But I'm very happy with the Bitubos! These are great springs for the price IMO.

Dan got back to me pretty fast he said that they have 3 models avaialable, the WMB (preload only) the WME (preload and rebound) and the WMT (preload, rebound and compression)
WMB $451
WME $515
WMT $905

What's the consensus for the Scrambler?

I have used Traxxion Dynamics before for the suspension on my Monster. I like their work.

You could ask the same question of owners of the America and Speedmaster as the engine is exactly the same in these models except for the primary chaincase cover. I once owned a Triumph America in our m./c rental fleet which we sold at 106,000km (65,800miles). Mechanical issues? Absolutely none, not even the need to adjust valve clearances in this time and remember that this was a rental bike having had many different riders. I have owned other Triumph twins since as well as my own Scrambler which has done 18months of road racing plus many track days with not a problem so IMHO, normal road riding will never stretch the dependability envelope on the Scrambler.

GPS Aux plug

Bought a Garmin hand held GPS to use on the XR (adventure riding) a few weeks back but got an extra mount for the scrambler as well.

Works a treat but thought I better add a power supply to save batteries, pulled the seat & tank off tonight for a look, checked out the spare plug under the tank near the coil on the left side...constant power, pulled fuses to check if it was protected..3rd fuse from the front on the right.

Worked out the best way to supply the power to the gps, used a power supply plug wired to the fused power under the tank & ran the wiring & plug back to the right side cover.
The plug fitted in by the fuse box & the gps power cord & plug into that behind the right side cover, easy & as the side cover comes off without tools easy to charge a phone or even a ipod if away for a few days on a road trip.

Cheers Terry

Tailbag for Scrambler

What would be a good choice for a tailbag for a Scrambler with the high pipes, TOR's, needs to be good size for several days trips but not too big to flop over and hit the pipes. The Wolfman Beta series looks nice and comes in two sizes, would the large be too big. Also the Saddleman for 89.99 looks nice. I am open to any comments and recommendations, thanks in advance.

I'll throw in my vote for the Saddlemen. Pack efficiently and it would be plenty; but it works well.

Metal mule is a great pannier solution, If you find the panniers too good, You could just source the frames and make your own panniers. Extremely bomber frames. You will be very happy!
