    What was the bike that @Camel ADV snapped in two? I thought it was a T7 or something...

    I think he snapped the handlebar in two. Not sure if there was damage to the clamps or not, but the clamps are like 4+ inches tall based on the photos I've seen. Eek!

    Yes I have them on my bike with the KTM PHDS handle bar mounts. If you want the handlebars as close to you as possible then they won't work for you. Because the mounts are bulkier you need to remove the pointer on the knob to turn it, unless you have the handlebars further forward. Untitled.jpg

    The Hyperpro CSC allows you to adjust how much damping you get total. The RSC only allows you to adjust when the high speed damping starts to work but the amount of damping stays the same. So the CSC is better for off road because you can adjust it to match the conditions. With the caveat that neither one is truly off road because they damp both directions but it's still better than the stock one

    Think Fastway's System 5 may offer more adjust ability than any other stabilizer. Super high quality units, like them a lot. Only downside is they've very tall.

    Looking for the correct link arm length when using the Hard parts mount for the Scotts damper, powerparts catalog
    Part number 63512905150 didn't come with the link. I already had the damper but with a incorrect link arm for a different application. Anyone have some insight or experience with a solution?

    You need the +8mm stepped arm. Part # LMK-4032-48 That's a Scotts part number not KTM.

    XRC from N.Z. is another option, they come with damping and dont use risers which is what I liked about it. Great bit of kit. I think Birch uses the same one. Kelly the guy who owns XRX and his wife are also great to deal with. Recommended.

    Humm, looks like it needs to be strait? But the +8. mm seems legit. Triple Clamp list one @+12 and Rottweiler show +8. The stupid thing is the Hard parts kit comes with everything except the lever, the damper is a separate item and number but no guarantee it comes with the correct link either as it's used on multiple applications in KTM's listings.!

    Thanks, but I'm not looking for a new system just need the correct link for the Scotts damper unit to work with the KTM hard parts mount kit which I already have both of.

    Maybe if you throw it all on the bike you can verify how much if any drop you need to get it to ride where you want on the pin?

    +8 and stepped is what you need. I have it on my bike, a straight one will sit too high on the pin. If you get the standard stepped arm and cut out the end of the slot it will also work. I did this while waiting for the correct one.

    Yes looks like you are correct the stepped one would be better for the reason you mention! Where did you get yours from?
