99 w/Pro-Tapers and steering damper??? Got to stop the buzz!!!

I rode today after removing my Cycra triple clamp handguards and the vibration was greatly reduced. I'm considering buying some Pro-Tapers and Acerbis flag mudguards but, can I still use my Scotts oil filler neck mount steering damper, after installing the "universal" Pro-Taper mounts?

What have you got to loose?

I hate so say this but I'm relitively sure that you are going to either have to get a new clamp, or look into the possibility of purchasing one of the NEW fender mount kits for the Scotts. That's what I'm going to do for my YZ that is using the Universal mounts.
I spoke with "Brent" at Scotts this afternoon. He tells me that the Fender Mount for the WR/YZ is being tested as we spoke. It should be available the first part of August. Gonna be an easy mount...Kind of like the WER mount whereas it will bolt up to the lower clamp via the 4 fender screws. Plus some kind of trick arm.

I forget what the manual says how far the tower pin (14mm?) needs to drop into mount, but when I talkd to Scotts about it they stressed to me to have the proper drop.
I'm guessing a longer tower pin and a longer arm will be required since you are raising the bars and moving them forward with Universal mounts (someone please correct me if I'm wrong). The drop down arm may serve both of those purposes.Scotts should be able to hook you up with the parts you need. I may just give this a try too so let us know what works!
Try some progrips, they really do reduce vibration over Renthals, Oakley, etc
