It works and its good screen. Not too big, not too small.
Takes the blast off my chest. Clean air around my helmet. No buffetting. I'm 5.8".

I originally wanted the OEM painted green flyscreen, that looks perfect IMO. But dealer said it wouldn't fit the 2012 Scram with dual clocks.

Another note, I noticed being on the highway yesterday in the jet wash from an 18wheeler, strangest turbulence, like being slapped side to side on the head. Doubt its the Dart, more turbulence thing.

Thanks, I just ordered the Dart from NewBonneville . I know they will give great service and it will fit...LOL

Wonder if it will take another month for Triumph to refund my money?

Why did you buy a Scrambler in the first place if you like HD that much? Seems weird. I can see going from Triumph to Moto Guzzi, or even a retro Kawasaki. But going from Triumph to HD would be like going from Alfa Romeo or Cooper Mini to a Chevy Impala or Cadillac.

I like many different bikes, having owned 4 Triumphs and 2 HD's I can say from experience the HD's are a better bike all around. I got the Scrambler because there are many great dirt roads in my area.

I find that statement amazing.

If you want to ride dirt roads you would have been better off with a DR or KLR 650.

This is all jolly bad news. Us Limeys want triumph to be a success and the US is an important market. Have you guys emailed the factory direct? Do they know how bad the service is you are getting? Over here triumph seem really keen to keep their customers on side. Let them know the problems, even did you go back to HD! It may help other owners.

I called Triumph North America and got lip service.

I don't do single track, the Scrambler is fine for fire roads. How the F is my choice of bike any of your business anyway? This is not a complaint about the bike, it's about the lousy US parts system.

You posted it on the forum, it is therefore mine and everyone elses business. If you don't like my response, that's a shame and all, but too bad.

I also suggest you keep your posts more civil.
