    Good morning all. I just received a pair of replacement coils for my 06 Scrambler and later today plan to install them. After reading up in my Triumph manual, looks simple enough. Do you really need to disconnect the battery, or is this just in case somebody decided to turn the ignition switch on during the install? I'm thinking not, but just asking because I do not want to burn the replacements up or injure myself in the process!

    Hi Mate,

    I'd disconnect the battery just to be on the safe side.
    Worse case scenario you'll need to reset the clock (if it has one?) & you'll probably get the EML light up.
    If so, just ride the bike as normal & after 3 rides (with a full cool off inbetween each ride) it'll go off. No need for a trip to a dealer to get it turned off.

    I believe I'll do that, since it's so simple. Thanks for your speedy reply! I am a 'better safe than sorry' type anyway.

    Ok mate,
    As it's an 06. I assume it's carb fed not EFi?
    If so, I'm not entirely sure they had an EML light?
    Somebody should be along soon to confirm or deny that?

    Yes sir, it is carb fed ad no Mel light. Things have changed a lot since 2006.
