Scott's Damper Kit

6 posts in this topic

I am looking at the complete Scott's Damper Kit for the 99 and was wondering about the different types. They make the standard off-set kit and a 5mm off-set(to match the y2k bikes) and was wondering if this would make much of a difference?

Thanks in Advance.

a steering damper is only needed if you are racing desert stuff. in my experiences they make the already sluggish (by 2 stroke standards) stearing even slower. you can forget all attempts to handle quik sharp turns. although you will go straight. unfortunatly not all tracks are 1/4 mile drag strips. turning is a must. but if you are racing desert, get one, scotts is the best. get the one that you suggested for desert stuff. but motocross is a bad idea with a steering damper, unless your local track is called "head shake hill". thats just my opinion.

If you aint thumpin, you aint ridin.

BBRGuy is right, if you plan on riding MX its a waste of money.I bought the complete set up for my 426 as I ride mostly Desert now and I love it out there.

I mainly run Harescrambles and Off-Road Events and planned only limited mx duties for the bike. With all the roots and rocks out there where I race/ride(Chadwick, MO AKA Rock Capital of the World), I feel it would make the handling more precise.

Thanks for the input.

I've recently installed one of these and I'm not quite sure why you guys feel that they would not provide some benefit to a motocross style of riding?

For me, the unit seems to add stability for all types of riding. Even freestyle.

Am I missing something?
