From what I can tell, it should be easier to mount with tall bars because I plan to use bars with a crossbar. Protaper doesn't make bars as tall as I want. I am planning on getting bars with a 5.2 inch rise. (any opinions on that?) What gives?

Just get your Scotts mounted 180 degrees around. Scotts does this for the computer mounts. This will also let you mount the handlebars as far forward as you need. You may need a custom triple clamp to get the bars as far forward as you want. The scotts damper is closer to you gas tank cap in this position.

To turn the dampener around, you will need the link arm puller... a bit extra - $15 or so if I recall correctly...
It can be done... easily, with the Scotts dampener, but you need to buy the stuff from them to suit...
Have you done the lowered footpegs mod as well...?

Now the only problem is that my Scotts Stabilizer doesn't work anymore, not just because the connecting link isn't long enough but it moves the stabilizer over the front stem making it off-set from center. The only option you might have is to get the lower Scotts mount so that your ergos are totally out of the picture... I just ordered mine yesterday and should be in anyday... It really makes sence to me because I never adjust my stabilizer, I'm usually about 5 clicks out from the stiffest setting and don't touch it.
Best of luck...
