Thanks Backdoc

If you decide you don't want the rotor I'd love to try the rotor and bracket.

Garthe's setup looks awesome. My damper is mounted above the bars though, this could get expensive

Garthe, I love u and i hate u at the same time lol. Thanks for the link for the relocation bracket. I already ordered one for me, and one for my friend. Now i just have to convince my significant other why i need a new triple clamp and protector after i just bought one.

hey bikepilot, what kind of dampner set-up are u running on ur bike? I have been contemplating getting one. I like the scotts set-up mainly because its below the bar. I'm just gathering info before i make another bozo mistake like i did with the vapor protector vs. HDB mount. Post a pick if u dont mind.. please
thanks
shane

Garthe,
what kind of set-up are u running with ur scott dampner? ie triple clamp, and risers. Did u have to replace ur stock top triple clamp, and how hard was it to mount the dampner? Did u have to install risers for the scott unit to fit under the bars? The PO had replaced my stock top triple clamp, and i am not sure who the manufacturer is. I know that the stock honda mounting holes for the odometer are in the same spot, but i believe that the risers are a little more forward. I had to trim down the edges of the vapor mounting bracket to make it fit correctly. I kinda like the billett top triple clamps that i have now, but i'm not sure if they are compatible. If i'm gonna end up replacing the top bar mount with the HDB set-up, i might as well plan to get the dampner added on on a later date. Like u said, i dont plan on getting rid of mine anytime soon either.
any info would be appreciated
thanks
shane

I have the standard scotts forward mount setup - the damper is mounted above the bars and the arm points forward so it doesn't get in the way of the dip stick. Only problem is I want to try to move the bars themselves further forward and things get complicated from there so I'm thinking about switching to a submount setup.

The submount system usually brings the bars up higher which means you need to run a flatter bar bend to keep the bars where they are (assuming you like the bar height you currently have). It also makes adjusting the damper just a touch more tricky, but gets the damper out of the way for other stuff you might want to mount up there (like a computer/gps) and is probably more crash proof, though it'd be really hard to hurt a scotts however its mounted I think.

I don't have a great pic with me - here's what I happen to have hosted



Dad's on the left, mine on the right, both have the same forward mount Scotts setups

man, ya'll both have really nice rides and i love the scenery.

I think i prefer the sub-mount version a little better. It think it keeps things out of the way and protected a little bit more. Plus, i am running the vapor comp on my bike so i think the sub-mount gives me more room. I wonder how high of risers u need for the sub-mount. I currently have CR high bend renthal fat bars on my bike. I don't think i would mind them being a little bit higher. I am 6" tall so i dont think it would be a problem. thanks for the pics.

It's a complete BRP set up. Top clamp w/sub mount, bottom clamp (because it's pretty). Here are the pictures.

Very cool. So the damper itself is bolted to the lower portion of the bar risers/clamps and not the triple clamp itself?

The 'new' 2007 XRR build, has been breaking these rules. What the hell...

Thanks Garthe, big help

Backdoc, I met my dad at Taylor Park in Colorado last summer for some riding. Awesome place and Texas is a whole lot closer than VA or FL

The dark pic is the night before V2R, I was trying to get the IRC tracker setup and headlight working.
