Scotts oil filler clearance?
Posted March 10, 2001 - 07:04 AM
I up bolted up the Scotts damper last night on my 99 and the instructions said to take the entire casting tang, off of the back, of the triple clamp. I really don't have the equipement to do this and have it look "clean". So I used a file and took off enought for a .125" gap between the TC and oil filler post tower bracket.
I this enough? I can't see where there would be that much flex in this area.

I had to grind about 1/8 " off each corner of that rectangular block at the back of the triple clamp. I used a flexible sanding wheel mounted to my electric drill...this made it quite painless.
The most important fitment thing with this type of mount is to mount the top of the mount flush with the top of the filler neck. This allows for the best clearance between the triple clamp and the mount and also allows clearance for the dipstick.

Nothing like a little customization to make the bike your own
Enjoy the damper!
