Has anyone found a steering damper for the H2 SX SE?

I tried to install a damper at the lower triple using a fork clamp. I finally gave up as the SE lines are very much in the way. Offsetting the damper out to clear the lines and I didn't have enough damper travel. It may be possible to move the lines around but I wanted to ride eighth my new flash. Maybe another day I'll take it apart again.
Where did you mount the damper to the frame?
I was trying to use the bolt that holds down the front fairing with a spacer. If I have time I will play with making an offset bracket for the damper and make brackets to move the brake/clutch lines away from the lower triple. It seems possible, just some fab work.
The one were doing mounts infront of the gas tank like on the zx10r. We're trying a universal fork mount under the upper triple tree. If that doesn't work my friend is going to fab a mount.

I got in touch with GPR last week. Randy Norman told me this..
“Sorry it would take a lot of cutting of the oem plastic to make a rotary damper work on that bike.

We have looked at it in the past but I don’t think anyone would want to do that to that bike.”

I told him I agreed. But that was before getting to 164 and wobbling. I’ll cut the hell out of whatever to get a great stabilizer.

The fork mount I bought was advertised as a 50mm and supposed to be here Friday the 15th. It arrived today (the 18th) and was a 54mm :bash: . Really pisses me off because I entered a 1/2 mile event coming up on the 30th that requires a damper.

But on a good note if the fork mount had been the correct/ advertised size my setup will work with a small spacer. I ordered another fork mount, hopefully it's the correct size otherwise I'm going to have to cobble together a temporary set up.

I'll post a picture of where I'm at so far. Hopefully some greedy A-hole doesn't steal the design for profit.

Keep at it friendo. And keep us updated. I’m waiting with anticipation
