Scotts Damper Problem solved

For a long time ive been having a problem mounting my Scotts steering damper. It would always move side to side becuase the small tab on the bottom of the mounting kit keeps breaking off becuase its too weak.

The first idea was to cut a groove between the mount and the tripple tree it didnt work very well and lots of time wasted.

My next idea was to mount the scotts normally but drill a hole in the top of my tripple tree. I know your all thinking im crazy but ive seen way to many people drill holes so they can mount dirt bike handlebars and none of them had a problem, or they didnt live to tell about it! Anyway I drilled out the hole and ran a bolt thru only one side of the scotts where it would normally go and put a nut on the bottom side of the tripple. Problem Solved

the red part circled normally rests against the tripple tree I have bought 3 mounting kits they all snap off eventually

The small screws arent worth a no matter how much lock-tite you use it still allows the scotts to spin around the tripple tree nut.

I have the same problem. The small protrusion or key on the bottom of the mount that sits into the groove or key on the top triple tree broke off. I was going to have a machine shop make a groove on the bottom of the mount where the existing protrusion used to be and press fit a rectangular piece of metal onto the mount. It is cheaper than buying another mount and having the same problem again. I don't have any pictures to show this but I hope it makes sense.

same exact problem I kept having i tried making my own groove and protrusion didnt work it came loose and rubbed against the tank mount.

I hope this thread will help someone. Best part is I used the same type of bolt that is normally used so it looks like its just mounted normal

Was it press-fitted? Adding a bolt works, which is what you did but is it easy to access the nut to tighten it just in case it gets loose?

it wasnt press fitted but I banged on it alot with a hammer....lol

Im not sure what a 929 looks like on the bottom but mine was easy to get to and I used a locknut so hopefully I dont have to worry about it comming loose again.

Btw I wish I bought a gpr in the first place
