How long would you expect to make one if a stock sample part was sent your way? I'm definitely interested.

Thanks,
Carl

How so? The G/S has features for the turn signal stalks, headlight top bracket mounts and aux gauge pods which differ from the 81-84 standard airhead version.

that sounds really great, Guy. Want you wanted to achieve sounds just like what I'd like to. I'd like a little less sweep, and a little more height.. more like a dirt bike.

I'm almost totally unfamiliar with the Scotts parts-

Pardon my ignorance- Is this the kit you chose?

Oh, OK, I see. The Scotts would mount to that, which mounts to the triple clamp, I'm gathering?

How do you get a reverse arm for the Scotts?

thanks, and sorry for needing the obvious instruction. This mod is going to happen.

Stagehand,

The part number for the SUB mount from BRP is SMO-10614P3, and is almost exactly like the one that GoodTill posted, except it has a little different offset between the stem center and the mount bolts.

Look at www.BRPMoto.com to see their selection of Bar mounts, stabalizers and bars.

I made a call to BRP this morning to ask about the "reverse" Scotts stabalizer needed for this installation, and aparently it just requires reversing the arm on the normal unit. So if you already own a damper you would like to install on your GS, sounds like it is an easy conversion.

No apology necessary, questions are good.

CaptRick,

I believe they went to the larger diameter (40mm) forks when they went to the 100, so yes I think that they will work, but I am not completely sure.


Maybe someone more knowledgable of all the different years/changes can verify this?

Thanks,
Guy

From the Website:

"When running a Scotts stabilizer in the SUB Mount configuration you will need to reverse mount the link arm on the stabilizer. You can send your stabilizer in and we will reverse the arm at no charge or you can purchase an arm puller for a reasonable price to do it yourself. You can find the arm puller in the Stabilizer or Tools category."

If they will reverse it at no charge if you send it back to them, I presume they will do they from the factory, as well.

And I think the GS forks are 40mm, but am blanking now that I'm being asked

BRP has a P/N for the "Reverse" Scotts damper, so if you are buying a new one from them, it will come with the link arm in the correct position. I imagine you could do the same directly from Scotts, as they also sell the BRP SUB Mounts on their site. (I think BRP will give you a discount if you buy both the SUB and the damper from them, and they are advertising free shipping on their site for orders over $100.)

The '90-'95 are 40 mm forks, but I wasn't sure about the pre-'90 models, I thought those two years had a few things that were not identical to the later models, and wasn't sure if the forks were one of them.

Does anybody know if the forks/triple setup were the same for all years of the GS?
