Triumph Street Scrambler - Owner's Manual > Seat Care


Use of chemicals or high pressure spray washers is not recommended for cleaning the seat.

Using chemicals or high pressure spray washers may damage the seat cover.

To help maintain its appearance, clean the seat using a sponge or cleaning cloth with soap and water.

Windscreen Cleaning (if fitted)


Never attempt to clean the windscreen while the motorcycle is in motion as releasing the handlebars may cause loss of motorcycle control and an accident.

Operation of the motorcycle with a damaged or scratched windscreen will reduce the rider's forward vision. Any such reduction in forward vision is dangerous and may lead to loss of motorcycle control and an accident.


Corrosive chemicals such as battery acid will damage the windscreen. Never allow corrosive chemicals to contact the windscreen.


Products such as window cleaning fluids, insect remover, rain repellent, scouring compounds, petrol or strong solvents such as alcohol, acetone, carbon tetrachloride, etc. will damage the windscreen.

Never allow these products to contact the windscreen.

Clean the windscreen with a solution of mild soap or detergent and cold water.

After cleaning, rinse well and then dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.

If the transparency of the windscreen is reduced by scratches or oxidation which cannot be removed, the windscreen must be replaced.

Care of Leather Products

We recommend that you periodically clean your leather products with a damp cloth and allow them to dry naturally at room temperature. This will maintain the appearance of the leather and ensure the long life of your product.

Your Triumph leather product is a natural product and lack of care can result in damage and permanent wear.

Follow these simple instructions and give your leather product the respect it deserves:


Preparation for Storage

Clean and dry the entire vehicle thoroughly.

Fill the fuel tank with the correct grade of unleaded fuel and add a suitable fuel stabiliser (if available), following the fuel stabiliser manufacturer's instructions.


Petrol is extremely flammable and can be explosive under certain conditions.

Turn the ignition switch OFF. Do not smoke. Make sure the area is well ventilated and free from any source of flame or sparks; this includes any appliance with a pilot light.

Remove one of the spark plugs from each cylinder and put several drops (5 ml) of engine oil into each cylinder.

Cover the spark plug holes with a piece of cloth or rag. With the engine stop switch in the RUN position, push the starter button for a few seconds to coat the cylinder walls with oil. Install the spark plugs, tightening to 12 Nm.

Change the engine oil and filter

Check and if necessary correct the tyre pressures

Set the motorcycle on a stand so that both wheels are raised off the ground.

(If this cannot be done, put boards under the front and rear wheels to keep dampness away from the tyres.)

Spray rust inhibiting oil (there are a host of products on the market and your authorised Triumph dealer will be able to offer you local advice) on all unpainted metal surfaces to prevent rusting.

Prevent oil from getting on rubber parts, brake discs or in the brake calipers.

Make sure the cooling system is filled with a 50% mixture of coolant (noting that HD4X Hybrid OAT coolant, as supplied by Triumph, is pre-mixed and requires no dilution) and distilled water solution

Remove the battery, and store it where it will not be exposed to direct sunlight, moisture, or freezing temperatures.

During storage it should be given a slow charge (one Ampere or less) about once every two weeks

Store the motorcycle in a cool, dry area, away from sunlight, and with a minimum daily temperature variation.

Put a suitable porous cover over the motorcycle to keep dust and dirt from collecting on it. Avoid using plastic or similar non-breathable, coated materials that restrict air flow and allow heat and moisture to accumulate.

Preparation after Storage

Install the battery (if removed)

If the motorcycle has been stored for more than four months, change the engine oil

Check all the points listed in the Daily Safety Checks section.

Before starting the engine, remove the spark plugs from each cylinder.

Put the side stand down.

Crank the engine on the starter motor several times until the oil pressure light goes out.

Replace the spark plugs, tightening to 12 Nm, and start the engine.

Check and if necessary correct the tyre pressures

Check and if necessary adjust the drive chain tension

Clean the entire vehicle thoroughly.

Check the brakes for correct operation.

Test ride the motorcycle at low speeds.
