Anybody have a pic of the PMB setup mounted? If im reading it correctly, the damper mounts backward on the frame and the pin mount on the triple clamp. My only concern is if the damper pivot mounts directly over the steering head. I talked to Scotts about this issue a couple years ago and he explained that they need to be on the same axis.

Their dampers are good, with high speed damping. You can mount a Scotts on it also if you get an extra long arm.
Given the parts shown in the link, I really don't see how that will work with a Scotts or a PMB/Fastway damper (very similar to Scotts).
Somebody buy one and take pics

Thanks for searching that out,,,,, I was wrong in the way I thought it mounted. But it still makes me leary because the pivot center is so far from the center of the steering head. The moment will be inconsistant as the bars are turned.

Hello, I have rox raisers less Than 2" lift and original handle bar.
Will steering damper and a RC high be higher or lower Than my current Running?

I contacted Promotobillet and this was their response.

Hey Ross, the damper set we have is intended to work with our damper, we've not tested it on the Scotts, I'm unsure if it would fit. The main reason being that the transfer arm we use (the piece that connects to the bottom of the stabilizer) is of different length than the Scotts transfer arm, also that arm has a 'dogleg' bend in it as well, whereas ours just comes straight out to meet the post.

That's kind of a BS reply. I've had plenty of Scotts dampers over the years and they don't all use the same arm. Some longer, some shorter and some with doglegs in them, you can buy an arm for any application you can dream up from Scotts. I understand the reason he gave you that answer though,,,, because they would rather you buy their product. A quick search around the internet reveals the Scotts and the PMB damper are interchangable as far as mounting. GPR also fits the mounting.

Here's another option but at the price you may as well go with the full Scotts setup.
