Use this opportunity to save yourself some greif (bending stock bars) and make some room in the cockpit. Buy the Jimmy Button high bend bars from Renthal and order the damper from Mark at two-dads. It will all, bolt right up.
I had the bars and Mark sold me the damper. I think he only charged me 5 or $10 for the shipping and that was coast to coast, I live in Pa.
86TT225, 99WR, WR timing, throttle stop trimmed, air box lid removed, White Bros head pipe, silencer and air filter. De-octopussed. Works frame guards and Thumper Rad Guards, Scotts steering damper. Odometer and headlight removed. Moose hand and mud guards. YZ stock tank, IMS seat and number plate. Renthal Jimmy Button "highs" and Renthal Soft half waffle grips. AMA, SETRA, Happy Ramblers MXC.

You’re gonna spend $400 + on a damper (not dampner, dampener, oh f**k it, it’s a STABILIZER) and you want to keep those crappy bars?
Just kidding, and yes, contrary to popular belief Mark and Rob, the damper will fit under the stock crossbar, but you have to remove the arm and install it facing the opposite direction (180 degrees). The damper mount holes are centered (the damper is symmetrical about the arm and mount bolts), allowing you to mount it backwards. This way the taller portion of the damper, err stabilizer, is behind the crossbar and the controls are accessible.
I’ve found that you only need about 37mm of bar to crossbar clearance to mount a damper and the stock bars should have more than that (Scott’s says 40mm is required).
Mark at Two Dad’s seems like a good guy, I bought a used damper from him (thanks Mark), and $370 is a good price for a new one. Don’t forget the mounting kit will run you another $130 or so…
