Harris Ohlins steering damper mounting kits

Just in case anyone is hanging on for these kits, I've had an e-mail off Harris; apparently they're still three to four weeks off being available, but should by simple to fit with no drilling or cutting.

Still, the green beast hasn't bitten back yet, so I think I'll hang on rather than look for an alternative!

I've read something similar from 10r_Geezer, I am going to give Mile Pajic a call this week, he has a setup for a WP unit for the 10R.

btw: he finished 14th in the Endurance race yesterday at Assen, mainly due to some brake/wheel changing problems. They don't do Endurance races normally, it wa just for fun. Mile himself had never ridden the 10R before this race. Otherwise they would probably have ended in 5th :(

I'd also like to know about the WP damper.

Mile's setup is different from what I suspect WP themselves will bring on the market. I think they will also have an across the tank mounted made available. I will also ring'em (ehh WP Benelux) and ask the what the status is, if they give me anything useful I will let you know :)

I'm also interested in a WP or possibly an ÷hlins steering damper kit. I called the WP importer her in Finland last week, but he didn't know of any mounting kit available for the 10R yet...

Well there is good news and bad news 8)

Bad news: WP suspension has the damper ready....but the mounting brackets (ala 916) need to be machined as well, they expect the entire setup to be ready late may/early june. :(
Good news: Mile Pajic uses the WP damper but makes his own mounting brackets either under the air intake or traditionally on the side, framemounted. He does this including mounting it for less than the WP setup costs. I guess I am going pay him a visit when I get my 10R :D :D

I still got my arrow stering damper from my cbr mounted 916 style. Waiting for arrow to make mounting kits to fit my 10. As i look today if it will take them too long i will doit myself modification to fit. I like this on top couse you can adjust it as u ride ( its 8 clicks adjustive) and you can vary on street for hard ridin and for slow traffic where you should turn it off. I almost crashed one day when i had setings on stiff and try to turn on lights too quick and bike didnt want to turn as quick as i want.

Akrapovic slip on, race screen, champ sliders, steel brake lines,DID 520 chain and sprockets, ohlins shock, race tech steering damper, AIM lap timer and everythin in carbon fiber except tank.




ride it like u stole it

It has been said by a couple of 10r owners W/scotts that the key must be shaved in order to turn it and that the damper is not centered properly....care to share any thoughts about either?

I'm glad you posted that picture. Thought the Scotts damper would ruin the looks of a clean cockpit. But the gold finish seems to match perfectly.
