How much are they?
Posted August 21, 2000 - 03:32 PM
I was hoping to be able to use my stock triple clamp and save some money. From all that I have read, it seems like a must have for an aging average rider like myself. My right arm is in a cast right now and I want every advantage I can get to keep it from happening again. Of course quitting riding is NOT an option!!! Not beign able to ride is driving me crazy
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks again, it looks like I'll be getting the Scotts when I can scrape up the cash.
By the way. Based on the new issue of Dirt Bike, it looks like you guys are going to have blast in Moab. The only thing I've ever rode on/in is dirt roads, timber and two motocross tracks. I'm jealous, but I hope everyone comes away with a lot of good memories.

Top clamp, damper, Pro Tapers and bar mount for $599 is a great deal. I have the Scott's top clamp and it is a quality piece. Does not have adjustable bar mounts however...
If you have a top clamp with different bar mounts (forward, back) you will need to order Scott's bar clamp for the position you run (i.e. Tag clamp, most forward position). If you want to move your bars later you will need a new bar clamp to reposition your damper (damper mounts on bar clamp).
Hope this is helpful...

Like I posted, if you're thinking about the stabilizer, just do it. You won't be disappointed. If I could have it all over to do again, I would not spend a dime on anything else except the stabilizer.
If you can, save yourself the hassle of trimming your stock triple clamp and get the Scotts package. Great no hassle fit. Mine came with the steering head mounted stabilizer bar instead of the oil filler mounted bar. Fit perfectly with no filing down of welds. I noticed the difference instantly.
Dougie, '99 WR400 with a lot of dumb, stupid, here take my money, I have to have them but they don't make me a better rider extra mods.
