More Stabalizer/damper questions?
Posted January 06, 2006 - 11:26 AM
I have narrowed the choices down to a "below the bars system". There are so many to choose from, the more expensive it is though, the longer I have to wait.
Looking at GPR version 3 (has the remote adjustment on the left handlebar side. $675
RTT - also a sub mount, but only has the on/off on the left handlebar side ($599)
Scotts/BRP setup does not have remote adjust, but for $675 includes pro-tapers
GPR Version 2 is $575, but is manually adjust only.
1. How important is it to be able to adjust on the fly?
2. How many of you have used the RTT system
3. How would you guys rate each in terms of performance/durability
4. Is there a better option than what I have listed that I may not know about?
Thanks for the help

meaning that it dampens as the bars turn away from center, but does not dampen when returning to center. Also, i think that scotts/ohlins have been doing it longer than anyone...and really have the design squared away.
watching Dust to Glory and seeing all of the baja racers with scotts units really confirmed my choice in my head.
and as for adjusting on the fly, the handlebar adjuster seems like overkill...its not difficult to adjust the scotts unit while riding...i do it all the time.

if you are not real tall, you will need to opt for a low bend bar to compensate for the extra rise of the sub setup.
I am 6 foot even, and i chose a standard scotts 3-clamp setup, with the CR hi-bend bar, and it fits me very well.

Maybe not better, but an alternative. This company makes a sub mount too.
Is there a better option than what I have listed that I may not know about?
They don't list one for any aftermarket triple clamps, but I spoke with them and they said they can make one to fit whatever you have. I've never heard of them before, so I can't speak on quality or reliability, but it is less than half what a BRP/Scotts submount costs.

Did the sub mount on the stock triple clamp using bar risers from AJs.
The whole setup from Scotts was $430.00.
I cant believe how much difference it makes.
Now I have both cheating devices, Rekluse and Scotts.

Do you have pics of this setup. I figured I would have to get new triple clamps since the stock ones are the 1 piece design where the lower clamp was molded into the tripple clamp.
I have a post "Scotts damper followup" a few pages back. Byggd posted some of the pics.

I would buy a Scotts, lots more fine tuning than the other brands..

If you go the SUB mount route, get everything through BRP, including the new triple clamp and stabilizer. They work hand-in-hand with Scotts and each company sells the other's products on their website. I've had nothing but great experiences with both companies, but BRP has been just a cut above...SC
I just went down to BRP on Tues. and bought their 22 MM black upper and lower triple clamps, Scott stabilizer, Pro-Taper bars-Low rise Pastrana ones to bring the height of the bars back to stock height.They threw in Spider grips,bar pad,and brake cable mount. I went with the sub mount so if I wreck I won't damage the stabilizer. It's still right in your face to adjust but real protected. So easy to put on too!!
