Can this SCOTT's Steering Dampener be moved under my bars?

I purchased this 2010 Yamaha WR250R with this Scott's dampener on it. It originally had the stock bars but I needed more height. I was concerned that by putting risers on it to achieve the necessary height my dampener would not work. I added Pro Taper contour ATV High bend bars (as pictures)that did bring it up a bit higher,but I'm still not happy with it after a season of riding with this set up.
I'd like to buy a set of risers and put the Scott's under the bars if possible,but am not sure if I need a different Scott's dampener to accomplish that? If I CAN use mine,do I need to buy some sort of bracket to mount it under the bars? The problem is that I'm bent over too much while standing and it's causing me much to much back pain. I hate to throw more $ at this,but I need to address this problem so I can enjoy my bike more pain free. Hope you guys can help.

I wonder if mine will work with that sub mount? I looked at someone else's pic of theirs with a sub mount and their dials were the opposite of mine and their mounting holes were different.

You can also call Billet Racing Products

You would probably have to switch out your post, stabilizer arm and triple clamp risers etc. Most bikes have a few set up styles depending on what the rider wants.

Good Luck

You can mount a Scotts damper with the dials facing either way, they just have the link arm flipped also and or changed out for a different one.
It seems common that the sub mounted ones are opposite top clamp mounted ones, same damper.
Scotts sells the tool to pull the link arm, but like mentioned your best bet is to call them.
