Which set up seems to work best, the forward, lower or sub mount options? It seems alot of you guys are using the forward mount, is this primarly do to the dipstick clearance and its ease to adjust on the fly? Anyone using the sub mount or lower set ups? I can see the sub mount being an option for someone wanting to get more height as well as dampening, but do any of the three set ups function better then the other? Your advice or feedback is greatly appreciated as always...:thumbsup:

I am using the sub mount and love it. It helps get the bars higher and though can be a little hard to adjust on the fly, it's not too hard. I am using the Windham bend Pro Taper bar as well and at 6' tall this seems pretty close to perfect for me. Yes it does make it a bit hard to use the dip stick but not bad at all.

Here are a couple of pics of my sub mount setup. Access to the dipstick is a little tight and it's a bit difficult to adjust on the fly but if you are over 6' tall it puts the bars where they need to be IMO. I am running CR Highs and it is pretty much perfect for me.

If you are a taller guy the SUB mount is the way to go. I have it on my XRR and its tits. But, I'm 6'6" tall depending on the day and what shoes I'm wearing.

If you are a shorter guy, the top/forward mount is a good setup to. Thats what Barnum had on his bike when I was at his shop and it was pretty slick. Bars were just too low for me that way.

edit: I am also running KX High ProTapers, looking to go to the ATV High's since they give you another almost inch of rise over the KX's with the same sweep.

I'm using the forward, above the bars mount on my 650R. My dad had the oil filler mount on his XR400, and I don't care how good you get at it, or how fast you are with it, that was just a PITA. The room to run it forward on the 650R is there, so I don't know why anyone would want to not run the forward mount. I like to check my oil before every ride, so I don't want to deal with the interference of a standard mounting position. I don't run the SUB mount just because I like to be able to adjust on the fly as fast as possible (I also have the large knob installed). With the Pastrana bend Pro-Tapers, I have more than enough room for my 6'3" height.

give the guys at scotts a call. I was fortunate enough to be able to go into the shop when I was on vacation and talk to them. They will answer any question you ask.

I have the sub mount and it works great with no problems. Im taller though so the raised bar helps. They have bar spacers if you get the submount and dont want to have to get the oversized bars and spend 90$. I'd buy directly from scotts....
