Rewind to efi discussion:

For the record, the Triumph web site claims there is no difference between EFI and Carbed model's power outputs. Currently the Bonne America shows

Maximum Power
62PS / 61bhp / 46kW @ 6,800 rpm
Maximum Torque
74Nm / 55ft.lbf @ 3,300 rpm

Maximum Power
62PS / 61bhp / 46kW @ 6,800 rpm
Maximum Torque
74Nm / 55ft.lbf @ 3,300 rpm

Not in line with what the techie told me, but that was pre-release.

Also will be '09 model year for EFI Scrambler here.

Anyone with a sense of smell would leave mine alone.

Seriously, being a CBOA member I use a handgun lock that law enforcement agencies give out for free. Small padlock and a length of cable and it works fine just to affix the helmet to the bike.

What I've used on various bikes is a small combination lock, like the Master Lock 646T. It looks like a glorified luggage lock. You know, the kind with the long narrow hasp? I put the lock through the helmet D-ring and over the clutch or brake lever and rest the helmet on the handlebar end or mirror. The narrow hasp is long enough to go over the lever, but too narrow to be pulled off past the lever's ball end. It's small, light, cheap, convenient, no key to lose, it's not bike model specific, and it works.

Helmet Guardian looks really practical - and hence lies the problem with my Scrambler

On my old airhead beemer, anything practical was straight on, because those bikes were donkeys - steady dependable load haulers, but not that attractive

My Scrambler is dependable aswell, but too good looking!

P.S. TOR's just arrived in the post from madss in the US!!! Finsih work at midnight, should i fit them then?

Wilco - just sourcing good ally billet then off to C'n'C
before I can accurately cost it.

The steel lump I have on at the mo only adds unnecessary unsprung weight.
Also the OE brake line is a little taught, so will adjust position to give a little more slack.

Yes, you should. You will love the difference.

I bolted a helmet lock on to the frame just under the left side of the seat, towards the back of the seat. Nearly invisible. Works rather well. I'll try to post a pic, and see if I cannot recall the make. If not, you can email Cascade Moto Classics and ask them which single helmet lock they stock. I bought it from them, and I think they only stock this one and the helmet guardian.

Hey circusinthesky, that sounds like a good solution. Would love to see a pic if you can dig one up. Unobtrusive yet handy sounds like what I'm looking for.

This ones from Motion Pro and cost me $15 bucks, I put a little electrical tape on the frame/peg mount so it wouldn't tear it up. Has worked and held up great since day one of getting the Scrambler. It holds the helmet off the ground about 6 inches.

Okay. Let's see if I can link these photos here....

Nope... okay then.

Photo1
Photo2

I had to crouch down to get the lock in the photo. You cannot see it when standing. Cascade Moto Classics had two sizes of these locks, I assume for different bar sized. I think I may have used the larger size, but you'd have to check. Anyway, I like it.

Circus & UP N MTNS, looks like you both have the same basic helmet lock just mounted in different spots. Circus, I like yours best I think because it's well hidden under the seat. I'll look into that. I think I've seen a similar lock behind the parts counter at the local dealer.

I would assume those locks are for 7/8" bar/tubing?

TOR's fitted

Can you see me smiling from here?

Was showing a guy at work in the underground car park, (down 7 echoing levels, magic), gave it a fist fulll on start up then let off really quickly.

Small flame spit from the end of the pipes and set off a car alarm

My bike is rejoicing

Get some
