I'm running the same set-up, but having issues with the Scott's Damper. I was told to get this http://www.brpmoto.com/index.php?pag...mart&Itemid=49 by the guy who built the bike, but it's not forking. The Scott's seems to be too far aft. Contacted Scott's and they don't even want to try because it's such a frankenstein bike. Any help would be great!

I applaud your mechanical ability & dedication to whatever you're trying to do! Although some of these shots made me cringe. Most of them made my wallet cringe. Good luck man
