So I laid down my Scrambler after 15 years riding. Rookie mistake too...loose sand in a turn.

Good news is, it was slow, I landed on my feet, and no serious damage. But I did manage to destroy my left foot peg and bent the left shock.

So now in the search for OEM replacements, I am curious if I can widen my choices. Am I correct that the Thruxton and Scrambler use the same length rear shocks? And also are the Scrambler and Bonnie driver foot pegs the same? I know the Scrambler pegs have a slight upward/forward bend from the mount before leveling out, but I can't tell if the Bonnie is the same.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Yes, Scrambler rear shocks are the same length as Thruxton rear shocks. If you're looking for OEM rear shocks for a Scrambler, in one regard you are very fortunate and should have no trouble! So many Scrambler riders swap out the originals for aftermaket before they start riding that there are usually a new pair of OEMs on eBay or this forum at any given moment for $50 + ship. I figure I'm holding on to my own as spares, but many guys do sell them.

As far as the peg, they're $65 spanking new from the dealer (I've been down on a Scrambler two or three times, NYC's a tough town).

One thing - you may want to upgrade your rear shocks, and this may be the perfect time to do it. The ride gets a heck of alot better!

Awesome! Thanks for the quick info. I would love to upgrade, but it's going to be sitting a while as it is till I find some scratch for used OE.

At least this opens up the options a bunch. Scrambler specific searches don't turn up much. I just feel fortunate it wasn't worse.

Thanks again!
