Good idea.

Again, going to keep the old parts intact, just in case. Never seen these billet triples on any bike, so being careful in case I have to switch back.

Starting to think about riding, again.

Nice to hear I'm not alone on this

I knew it was too good to be true.

This is the OEM upper triple.



This is the photo I saw before buying the triples. Can't see the mounts for the handlebar clamps.



I (previously) posted a photo of the new triples, and you can see 4 holes for mounting the handlebar clamps. So, 2 mounting positions, no problem.

Didn't measure the hole centers.

Surprise. The new handlebar clamps and mounting holes are much narrower. The steering damper isn't going to fit.

Trying to design a fix, but may be too difficult with this upper triple.

Need to do something soon, so I can ride. And, I won't be riding without a steering damper.

yeah, it's pretty simple to make a top clamp for the damper. Scotts mount holes should be centered over the stem front to rear, I forget the bolt spacing but remember it being a pretty simple number.

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

I think I can take measurements from the new upper triple while it's mounted.

I'll post up a couple of pics shortly to highlight the problem.
