Question Scotts damper for 990 - where to buy?

Howdy folks. I've read a bunch around here and have decided to buy a Scotts steering damper instead of the other choices that are out there.

I would also like to raise my bar at the same time. Does anyone know if the full kit (about $700 on Scotts website) raises the bar? Also, is there a better price deal than buying the kit (damper + triple clamp)? Perhaps a place that gives ADV or AMA members a discount? My 990 is a 2008, if that makes a difference.

Thanks!

There is a ADV specific damper that does not require you to change the triple cmamps - that should work out a lot cheaper, I'm sure some-one will chime in with the manufacturer.

Laugh KTM-Parts.com

I got my sub-mount upper triple & damper for about $625 @ www.ktm-parts.com

I had to pay tax, they are only 12 miles away!

Nice kit though, SO complete... I think it was worth it

I just got an Emig from KTMtwins. They also carry the Scotts. On my last KTM (450EXC) I had the BRP Scotts kit. That was really nice and about the same price. You can get it directly from BRP's website. They are all around $700 shipped.

Howd you get it for 625? They have it on the site for 700 right now.

Noticed that renazco racing has them for $664 and they offer a 10% adv discount. Brings it to just under $600, that was the cheapest I've found yet

Jeeze I just had to buy a $500 helmet yesterday. Time to sell my r/c stuff but by then I'll probably want some boots! When does it ever end...

I purchased the Ralle Moto unit for my 990 about 2000 miles ago. It took about 10-15 minutes to install. Search the forum on Ralle Moto and make your own decision, just be sure to grind down the post as others have noted. I had a good experience dealing direct.

It is a good unit, but is not as precise as my GPR on my 450. http://www.rallemoto.com/contents/en-us/d27.html

I got the triple and stabalizer. It mounts up very cleanly. It moves it forward and up.

ktm-parts.com offers a 10% discount on all equipment when you sign in. It's easy money, hence the good deal. Renazco may be cheaper right now, but generally ktm-parts.com will be handy day in / day out.

And yep, I got mine a while back (when I hat the Katoom, I'm a poor Vancouverite as compared to a cashed up Brisbanite right now) and it worked a treat. Great investment; but do your suspension first! (If you haven't already)
