I have the same problem :(
I mounted mine higher and now the light points too far down, but mine is just ziptied :LolLolLolLol:

I didn't want to take my damper off cuz i wheelie at high speeds and just thought that it wasn't a great idia ??????

I don't realy like the way i got it, so if you figure it out let me know please !!

good post time. ^ :hippie7: ^

i agree. get a gpr or scotts damper. im not sure about how much better they are, but theyd solve your problem and look a lot better!

but i dont think a top-mount one will work, cause my dirtbike bars will be here soon, and i dont think a damper will fit under them

Ehhhh that sucks dude.. See about a center tube style mount like a hyper pro, or ohlins. It'll mount between your upper tripple and your gas tank.

If you got a newer bike you could find something decent like that. They never made a center mounting point for my make and model so I had to make my own like this..

itll be just me stock triple, +5mm tag risers, and tag fat bars
Well hell man if your doin that just get the measurement (how wide) a Scott's or a GPR damper is and put your risers just outside that. As long as your bars will clear the top of the damper..

If you know someone that will let you snag there damper just for measurement.. Bolt the Damper up and make sure it will work..

If it does man you will have a killer setup
