Hi Russ-

I got the F2R RB 750 rollchart holder from Rally Management Services, and the handlebar brackets, and the ICO. Plus I splurged on the upgraded buttons

I like it, its the only one I have experience with. Its got redundant drive wheels, and comes with LED backlighting, which could be useful!

Jason- trying to look through this thread, but didn't find it. Do you have a steering damper on the GS??? I saw reference to HPN's but was hoping there might be a damper kit w/o the top triple. researching a damper for the GS front on my G/S, might be riding in Arizona for a couple of weeks if things work out well, so the damper might help my lack of sand riding skill.

I'm sure Jason will be along, but it's a Scott steering damper, aka "Hand of God." with HPNGuy (I think) mounting/machining. It's back a ways.

I have an HPMGuy triple clamp with Marzocchi 45mm Shiver forks and would be very interested in getting the Scott's stabilizer mount. If Guy needs a minimum order, count me in.

Hi! thanks for resurrecting this old thread...

I take it you found the info you needed.. the top triple is BMW on the bottom ,and WR450 on the top.

THat isnt the trick though, the real trick is getting the bolt on pin tower fabbed up. Thats the part that needs a few folks to go in so its worth Guy's time.

Unless you can make it, or know someone who can wing it, or you weld a pin to the frame, somehow.

I sent him an email asking, but haven't heard from him yet.

I'm not following what you said "the top triple is BMW on the bottom ,and WR450 on the top"

I assumed the "kit" was for the top triple, bar mounts, head pin clamp and scott damper.

I've looked at these and know I could make it fit eh G/S, just weld a pin and mount the damper to the lower clamp.

By bmw bottom, I mean it fits the BMW tubes and head in everyway. By being WR450 on top, its bar mounts and Scotts mounts are taken from a WR450, so essentailly, you'de get the WR Scotts mount adapted to the BMW top triple. Youre right about the rest of it.. Bar mounts are integral to the top triple, though, if I'm not mistaken.

Edit: I was mistake. The bar mounts are whatyacallit. Vibration mounted. Think mine are worn out


That front mount for the damper looks pretty cool, too. Sure does save all the mucking about with the triple clamp and such, as long as you've got the room up front, over the fender, which the G/S should have. Not some some dumb metal bar like a GS.

Here's the latest thread for for a group buy of Guy's triples to mount KTM forks on a GS. In this same thread, Guy is planning a run of tower pin brackets, as a few of us are also wanting to mount Scots damper...
