    G-Craft from Webike, or YSS from one of the many Thai sellers. Don't bother with CR Racing or similar mounts that have a single thin rod holding the damper - they flex a lot and will give you a twitchy front end when running high damping.

    I understand the price point temptation of import stuff, but if you REALLY need a damper, understand none of that compares at all to the Scott's set-up. Truth.

    MNNTHBX has their own proprietary 1-1/8" bar mount that the Scott's damper will bolt directly on to.

    i personally run this setup with the Renthal Fat Bars and could not be happier with the clean, functional and solid install. Even the Scott's frame side mount that MNNTHBX provides is far superior to the multi piece one sold elsewhere as you won't have problems with the bolts backing out.

    No. The rod in that design flexes a lot.

    For a linear damper, this is the best option: G-Craft : Steering Damper Bracket for GROM [39959]

    This may be ok too, but the price is much the same as the G-Craft: https://bikerzbits.com/yss-steering-...nting-kit.html


    Keep in mind also, many of the knock-off HyperPro dampers are prone to leaking.
