Well it took some doing, but I got the damper that came on my track bike set up on the duc....

The bars I have preclude me from using the kit as-is, although, if that were the case, I think the damper would sit up too high and interfere with my line-of-sight to the instruments. Not that big of a deal, really, but it would look odd.

I had to machine the nipple off the ignition mount point, shorten the pin and shorten the plastic washer...

Here's how it looks with the damper mounted


And without, you can see where I machined the mount. We considered many ways of making it fit with these bars, but this was the best option, and you don't lose anything in strength as the pin bearing surface in the piece doesn't change.


So that's that....next project.....

I had the exact same setup as you and I used two 1/2in aluminum spacers under the gauges to lift them up and have them clear the damper. I might still have them around, since I now have a Motogadget. I'll take a look.

The damper and mounting look good...............but it seems as though your forks don't come thru enough ?

The forks are up about as far as they can go. They wont fit through the holes in the clip-ons and they are not designed to. The holes are designed to access the adjustments on the adjustable forks that came on the "S" Monsters.

Yes, the forks are about 7mm low. Not a bad idea if the rear is up about 14mm, that'll happen this winter.....

The clip-ons were made for the 750 and the 750i.e., so, if the forks were adjustable, and I wish they were....
