the top part of my scotts damper flew off about a month ago.I guess vibrations from ridin loosened the two bolts over time.I didnt apply that blue loc tight liquid to them.Has this ever happened to any one else.The damper worked great and i will get another one next season.

And you thought that solo cowls were the only things that flew off of these bikes. Has Scotts said anything about this part? Replacement? Warranty?

WHAT! the damn thing only costs $400 new, if I were you I would come at them from every angle and maybe they will breakdown and hook you up.

Make sure you read and follow directions! The manual specifically states "if you do NOT use the Locktite included we PROMISE you the screws will back themselves out."

Check out eBay and don't forget to use the blue Locktite that came with it!

The Scotts damper is an Ohlins product. The internals and externals are Ohlins minus the "Scotts" that is stamped into the product. The top mount rotary damper is far more adjustable than the standard shock type and is less likely to become damaged.<p>

Loctite everything when recommended. Any racer here will tell you that every bolt comes loose at some point if not safety wired. On the street, you are still subjected to constant vibrations and your bike may be under forces that you may not even feel or notice.

Hey Desmo, I didn't crash the bodywork you sold me! Ran off the track a lot this year though - never really did that before! Beats putting it on its ear though.[8D]

I shouldve thought about that since their rotary dampers look exactly alike! I was in the mind of Ohlins' slider damper.[:eek:)]
