Gentleman, I up bolted up the Scotts damper last night on my 99 and the instructions said to take the entire casting tang, off of the back, of the triple clamp. I really don't have the equipement to do this and have it look "clean". So I used a file and took off enought for a .125" gap between the TC and oil filler post tower bracket. I this enough? I can't see where there would be that much flex in this area.
