FS: Scotts Steering Stabilizer/Damper w. 2002/2003 R1 mounting kit
For sale: slightly used Scotts steering stabilizer/damper (shown) with 2002/2003 R1 mounting kit (not shown).
I used to ride an R1, but the insurance cost was so high. When I switched to my current GSXR750, I found that that it already came with a damper - with decent performance. If I'd have bought a bike without a damper again, the Scotts would be on it... but since the GSXR already has one, I'm going to sell the Scotts.
This is a beauty as far as dampers go. It's got dual damping circuits and a sweep range control so you can tweak it out for city or track riding. The coolest thing is that you can change how it works while riding - the knob with the pointer on it allows you to adjust the response without re-filling with different weight oil, etc.

I used this damper for about 6 months and I'm the first owner. The only issue with this item is some small cosmetic scratches on the front - please see the pics. I can hardly see them from a far, but if you look close enough they are there.
The package I'm selling comes with the Scotts damper, the R1 mounting kit, the manual, the box that it all came in from Scotts, the stickers that came with it, the keychain that came with it, the detailed R1 installation instructions and even the Locktite that it came with from Scotts. Effectively, you get exactly what you'd get if you'd have ordered it directly from Scotts.
FYI, I had the damper professionally installed on and removed from my R1 by John Bowman.
New price: $650 - $700 CAD.
Selling price: $400 CAD OBO.
If you don't ride with a steering damper right now, consider getting one of these - preferably buy mine.
BTW, additional mounting kits can be purchased from Scotts for other bike models - street, dirt or ATV.
Let me know if you're interested.
