New Scotts Damper Mounting for KTM

Just fitted my new Scotts Damper mounting from KTM Sommer. It puts the damper under the bars and includes the risers (gives a 4cm rise over stock). It's close to the tank but dosen't touch.

there we go...... much nicer than on top of the bars. what does the mount look like to get it down there? i assume you had to lift the bars a bit too?

Looks great

Looks like a weld on rather than a bolt on, yes?

Sounds like the kit is complete, risers and all, that's cool.

Bolt on /Weld On.

Looking at Ktim's it looks like he is using that same kit but with a weld on spigot.

Tim,

Can you tell us waht's in the kit? Or the kit P/N?

I have a weld on tower in mine which was welded to a brace that bolted through the frame. It's not a definitive solution as the oil in the frame breathes through the holes. I don't have a good pic of it...


I would like to set up something like you have in there as we gain another 10 mm bar height, against the standard risers. Here's sommer's catalogue:

So if I am getting this all right, for my '01 this kit will work, but it will need to be welded instead of bolted on?

KTim - your set-up still working dandy?

The tower will need to be welded on, but I don't know of any bolt on Scotts damper mount that will work with a "640" LC4, unless you change out the upper triple, or start cutting things like steering locks, and replacing the handlebar bolt nuts on the underside of the triple. (A local machinist fabbed up a triple for his personal Duke II so he could use a bolt on tower mount, he told me there is no way he would ever do it again, major machine shop hours, and a real P.I.T.A.) IMHO, the weld on tower is pretty straight forward, and it works well.

Your upper clamps look different on yours Mack. What is your set up exactly?
