Scots Dampner Mount Survey and ?????????
Posted August 03, 2000 - 12:07 PM
I'm looking at getting a dampner. I'm told Scots offer two bolt on mounts. One goes aroung the oil filler neck and the other around the Steering head tube. Have any of you tried the new steering head mount. I really would like to get the bolt-on so when I buy another bike, I can buy another mount and swap it back and forth.
Help me out guys.

The only problems that you may encounter are seating problems if the guy at the factory was an over eager welder (sort out with a square file). Also you must get a Scotts (or other ?) top triple clamp so as to clear the pin.
I used red loctite on the clamping surface to insure that the clamp doesn't move.

I have a '99 WR400 and the guy on the phone said it would fit. I sure hope so. I won't be able to find out until next week though when I get time to put it on.
I got the top and bottom triple clamp setup so I wonder if that is the reason they sent the steering head clamp instead.
