YOU CAN NOT RUN STOCK BARS BECAUSE OF THE CROSS BAR. YOU CAN RUN ANY BAR THAT HAS A REMOVABLE CROSSBAR,BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO BEND THE CROSSBAR FOR CLEARANCE FOR THE DAMPER.

I HAVE NEW DAMPERS FOR $370.00

CALL TOLL FREE 866-782-4600/818-782-4600

Robman,

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.

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…

You have a few options on the damper. $320 from Scotts, I paid about $300 from John Burr for just the damper. You also need the bar mount and post. These two run about 100-150 if you buy them both at the same time. For gods sake man, replace those stock bars. Look for package deals. I think Scotts has a combo with top clamp, Damper, bars(Pro Taper) and all the mounts for $599. Also check with BRP on the GPR combos.

Good Luck,
Todd

Renthal makes a replica of the YZ bend. Check their website for the spec.s and you can compare the other bends to the stocker.
