Scotts for the F800

Just got a call from Scotts Performance today. They would like to "borrow" my bike towards the end of January for product development.
Good news for sure. Won't be long now.
It sounds like it will be sub-mounted. That's all I know for now.
Of course I'll post up when I have more info.

Funny.., coincidence or not, buy I contacted them couple of days ago and asked that if they have any plans for F800GS...

..and I got an answer that "they are working on it"..

Or at least now they seems to be..

Im hoping the sub-mounting wont necessitate raising the bars in order for it to fit?

Awesome. I actually called them just today and they said they are working on it and should have something out in the first few months of 2010. Maybe my call put them over the edge......

When I was speaking w/ Jim @ BRP last year about this, he stated that the bars would raise about 10mm. I don't know if this will still be the case or not.

Being a total noob to the mechanics of a steering damper and realizing that it's a purchase I should make sooner than later is there anyone who can shed some light on what makes the Scotts different from the Ralle-Moto?

I know the RM has some modes you can select which change the damping intensity and 'direction' but is this really beneficial or just useless extra? What sort of setting does the Scotts have? Seems like these are going to emerge as the two main players in the steering damper game for the F800 and it would be great to get some technical difference explained by those so enlightened.

Bike was dropped off at Scott's today. Should have her back in just over a week.
I'll try to get the particulars re: pricing then.

Under bar for sure.
I'm hoping for a forward mount similar to the XR 650.

Nice, looking forward to it. The $800 price tag of the Rally Moto and not being able to be serviced easily is a hard pill to swallow. I bet it will look a bit like Dert Gerl's fab: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...5&postcount=24

That's more like 100 mm of rise.

Supposed to get the bike back on Monday.
I was told (I think I understood) that the kit would go into production immediately.
I will post photos when I get the bike back.
