I used the Aerostich heated grip assembly with BMW grips. I just cut the existing wires close to the connector and soldered them up. The stock and the Stich uses a 2 wire setup, so it's prettu easy. I used Kapton tape under the left bar to insulated it a little and also used some of the tape to hold the Stich elements on the bars. Then some of the old lady's hair spray and slide the grips on.

Now I need a cross bar to hold my GPS. Any know where I can get a cross bar for a fat bar?

Picts tmr.

Great job Guy!!

No make another batch of rear trays!!! Please

Well i went to install the Scotts tda and found out I have the wrong arm. I have a straight arm and I guess I need a stepped on.


Now that I looked at ADVnut setup, I see the stepped arm

Order went in to BRP for stepped arm.

You might not need to buy a new arm, you can lower the plastic collar on the tower pin to bring the pin up level with the top of the straight arm. If it won't extend enough, you could buy the next taller pin from Scotts (about $10), this will be a bit cheaper.....and you won't have to buy the puller to replace the arm on the damper.

Puller, we don't need no stinking puller.

We have the 41A adapting tool

Thought i put up some photos of the finished product. It took about 2 hrs to do. Biggest issue was taking all the stuuf off the bars and getting the new bars ready.








Thanks Guy

What a great thread! I cannot wait to try this...

Not to get picky, but has anybody considered a remote adjuster?

Bump,

Bringing up an old thread,
I've got a few questions for you guys running these scotts dampers on airheads.

I am in the market for a (probably cheap second hand) scotts damper for my 80G/S which will soon be wearing its WP50 extreme front end with Rdubb triples made by Guy.
Who has gone with the road or offroad versions (ie damping both ways or only away from center)?
From my reading I found some talk that the road version is better for heavy bikes. There were a few other reasons as well, and it just makes sense to me, but I am leaning towards the road version.
However, who's got what and how has it worked out?

Also,
I need to figure out which tower attachment and what stepped arm thingimy I need... I am planning on getting a submount set of bosses (probably BRP) for the Rdubb/Guy clamp.

thanks for any advice, and/or links to other threads where scotts dampers on airheads (particularly G/S or GS) is discussed.

scotts= awesome. i love it on my GS. When I'm really pushing it, the bike sometimes wants to turn in, on corners, especially loose ones. A couple of clicks up and I can throttle through instead of fighting it. It reduces fatigue so you can ride farther, faster. Slimy sections and puddles are not longer puckering, it just tractors through. Really brilliant, imho.

I could go on and on, you need more?

More More
Thanks Stagehand I was hoping you would turn up

Have you got the road or the off-road version (damping both ways or only damping away from center). What are your thoughts on the choice between the two.
And aside from = awesome in the dirt, do you notice any effects on the rubber cow on the road?

Due to reading somewhere that the road version is probably better for heavy bikes (for road and offroad) and just trying to imagine a damper working only one way, I'm leaning towards the road version.
If I get persuaded towards the off-road version I'll be annoyed because I just missed a cheap one

Also,
What have you used for the bolt on tower thing? Is this a part that Guy sells?
Thanks.
