I compared parts diagrams last year. The big difference is the lower triple clamp. Where the damper attaches on the H2R.

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity

Not without custom fabrication.

The portion of the damper mount that connects the damper to the frame is done. I ordered a fork tube universal damper mount for the fork side that should be in tomorrow. We're hoping that works so my friend doesn't have to fab that side of the mount too. Pretty close to having a damper set up for the bike.

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?

Have the vandemon exhaust coming.
How long did they say it was going to take? Where do they ship out of? I am hoping Brocks comes out with a full system but the Vandemon is probably my next option.
no interest in the zx10 header exhaust?

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.
