You might also consider GPR. I've got a Scott's on my F800GS, and it's probably saved my arse a couple of times. I put a GPR on my WR250R and I like it as much as or more than the Scott's.

My RM-1 is still going strong. Added about 10,000 miles since my last post on this thread. Plenty of adjustment, no issues. Daily commutes, 2500 mile overloaded trip, plenty of varied terrain.

No leaks or seepage....but that is because I bought a rebuild kit for my shelf. My critique would be that there is a huge difference between the 6 and 7 setting on my unit. If I go to 7 while underway and forget I'm there...exit the terrain or slow down...it is really hard to steer which gave me some close calls. I have now successfully learned to lower to 6 BEFORE I need the maneuverability.

As soon as I have $500 to burn, my $$$ is going to GPR. They are right here in San Diego. I think I heard if you go to their shop, they will even install it for you. Pinless sub-mount kit (including risers) in 6 colors - msrp $550. SD BMW had a kit on the shelf my last visit priced at $495.

Edit: Here is a link for GPR. Its the GPRv4 dirt that fits the F8's

Scotts-GPR-Rally-Moto

I have had GPRs on KTM dirt bikes--not as good as Scotts. Currently have Scotts on 350 KTM and love it. 5 years old and going strong . Got tired of waiting for Scotts kits for 2010 F800 so bought Rally-Moto. WOW Their kits are a work of art and are super easy to install. Over-all like a Scotts but better.

Really? Would you care to elaborate on why you feel that way? I have had Scotts on street and dirt bikes, and I do like them. I have also had GPR. It just seems to me the difference is not THAT noticeable. The GPR kit is more appealing to me because of the pinless application which in turn causes it to tuck in farther out of the way on the sub mount. Plus, I live in San Diego and am a firm believer of supporting local and good customer service. Not that Scotts doesn't have good customer service.
Just my .02 cents.

What i like about about the RM 1 is that it looks badass and it has the large bar risers and it looks easy to change positions on the fly

I have a XChallenge with a Scottts and an F800GS with an RM2. Their both good, but the RM2 is much smaller and lighter, has more adjustments and the F800 fitting kit is great.

I use scotts on my F800 (offroad version), and also on my dirtbikes. It works as intended for both machines...easy install and works well.

Im glad to hear the RM stuff is good quality. I am leaning towards RM but i can get great pricing on Scotts. seems like a draw....

I love the RM mount and i like the Scotts damper. so im thinking to myself, why not have the best of both worlds?

Dont you think that both of these mounts look like they have the same mounting points? anyone really know if i can use a scotts damper on a RM mount?

scotts

rm

does anyone know the distance between the 2 mount points on ether of these mounts?

RM2 is smaller and I think easier to use.
