640 ADV Scotts under bar mount interest?

I fired off e-mails to Scotts Performance and Pro-Tect Enduro Concepts, asking if they had an under bar mount for the Scotts damper. No response from Scotts yet, but here is the response form Pro-Tect:
Hi David, we haven't yet made an under bar mount for the 640. I've had many requests; however have just not had the time. Perhaps the time has come. How many mounts are we talking about and for what year bike(s)? I'm also going to need a triple clamp(s) for taking hole spread pattern measurements and so forth. Please advise.

Thank you,

Robin Cloutier

Who's interested? I'm not sure I can pop for the damper right now, but I want my bars raised anyway, so buying a SUB mount will give me the height I want and a "downpayment" on the damper, so to speak. I can loan him my triple clamp, but I don't exactly know what variations are out there over the model years, but I'm sure someone here does. So let me know if you're interested and what year you have and I'll see if Pro-tect is interested in that quantity. Thanks

i am currently taking names for people who are interested. i have the mount designed for use with a scotts damper, but have not recieved enough interest. i will spark up the cnc machine when i get about a dozen interested parties. right now i have 5.

currently i estimate cost of around $100 for the mount and you purchase the damper from scotts yourself.. as i live in canada you americans would pay duty twice to buy the damper from me so it doesn't make sense.

if you are interested please pm me and i will add you to the list.

Why not try this one. It works fantastic on KTM's and you can get it in orange or black.


You can find it HERE

Are you sure this fits the 640 Adv

I spoke to those guys a few moths ago and they said one was in the works, but not done for us 640 Adv'ers....

It bolts right on to an SXC (or EXC/SX) as it does not use the rubber mounting. I have not tried to put it on an Adventure or LC4e, but I can't imagine it would be very difficult. I have a GPR in stock. I could see what it would take to mount it if there was enough interest.

Had them send me a new 05 copy of the Sommer's catalog and looks like there is one on page #71 that says "Anbausatz Lenkungsdamper fur LC4\ Adventure etc etc" Wish I could speak german, I can barely handle english. Anybody know for sure.

Thanks

It is "mounting kit for steering damper, LC4/Adventure".

Use Google language tools and you'll get some great translations that sound like a 1960 Yamaha owner's manual:

"STEERING WHEEL ENDS
Prevented that up-scrub the grasp rubbers in the case of a fall and will revaluation also the optics still."

I think that it is more than likely that many of the 90mm spaced under-the-bar mounts would work on an LC4/ADV with some extra work. At the very least, you will need longer bolts to accomodate the rubber and OEM washers. And you will need a post (correct height) which is quite close to the steering stem, as there is not much space with the tank proximity. Maybe a custom stab lever or get a mount where the stab position is very flexible.

I'm thinking maybe a scotts + trailtech + emig LC4 bolt-on post. Or maybe a GPR2 + emig post. Not sure. There's also the PT mount. Someone on ktmtalk is going to fit that to an LC4, perhaps without rubber. Don't think I'd do that. I'd keep the OEM rubber+washer stuff.

Will your planned mount be rubber isolated? Just curious as the GPR is not. If you make a prototype, post a picture. I'd like to see it.
