The above link is to gpr's new f800gs steering stabilizer. Has anybody seen or used one? I think this would be a very good upgrade to have. I do lots of highway riding (70-80 mph) and my steering is all over the place, especially with wind.
Would this fix my problem? Please let me know b/c I think it would.

The cost is $550. Is this worth the price or is the too much? I have never used a steering stabilizer.

This is not my bike but an image from the site.

finally pulled the trigger on the Scotts, put it on the bike last night and holy cow what a difference!

First off, the install was slick as hell, only about 45 min, the hardest part was trimming the plastic on the underside of the ignition cover to get the needed clearance, and that was pretty easy with the dremmel.

I only had time to do a couple loops on the gravel near the house, but it was recently bladed and was deep and loose. now i can power around the corners with confidence, the front feels planted and controlled, much more like my old 1200Adv, but better! cant wait to ride this weekend!

stabilizer

A sponge is a "dampener"

Scott's stabilizer is a "damper".

Pedantic, I know.

Ralle moto dampener question

Hi mates,
I have a question to those who also have Ralle Moto RM 2 dampener.
It is a great product but there is something that annoys me a little bit.

Even on the stiffest settings it seems to have a little bit of the "free" play (5-10 mm if measuring the edges of the handlebars ). It is caused most likely by a tiny gap between the pin and the edges pin slot.

Does anyone have the same issue or your handlebars give you "dead" feeling when on 8-6 setting?


Any input will be very appreciated.
Thanks

Hello everyone.

I put my eyes on scott's performace ...but i am from Europe.
Is anyone here who buy that product from an european dealer ? In my country the custom procedures are very complicated so i prefer to buy it from an european dealer.

Thank you.

Have you emailed Scotts to see if they have a European distributor? sales@scottsonline.com

Ok i emailed Scotts but i have another question :

I saw that picture on Scotts web site and i wanna know WTF is that think that i marked with a red elipsoid ?
Is that a part of the kit ? Does it have anything to do with the suspension ? Cause it look like i can ajust something at the front end suspension from it.

Thanks.

That was my bike they used.
That is the pre-load adjuster from the Bitubo fork kit.
Definitely not part of the kit from Scotts.

I would talk to RM. I do not believe my Scotts, on my GSA, has any free play. Would a wrap of tape around the pin fix it?

What does that Bitubo fork kit ? Can you give me a link ? I am considering a suspension upgrade but i don't have to much info until now i was considering just the hyperpro progresive springs kit .

I found the link .

It is a replacement fork cartridge. http://twalcomusa.com/f800gs/suspens...50gs-twin.html Made in Italy, so you probably can find a source closer to you. There is a specific thread on it some where on this site.
