Just getting started

I have been doing track days for a few years on a 07 600rr and was dead set on getting a 675R, so much so that I purchased the Attack triples, rearsets, bottom link, ceramic bearings, and track bodywork months before I even bought a bike. Well, I now have a 2014 Daytona 675R and am starting to put it together. My plan is to see if I can get a noticeable improvement over my other bike and get into my first few races. I am having trouble figuring out a good steering damper for this bike with these triple clamps. Scott’s makes them but says they have a 2-3 month lead on the Daytona frame mount. GPR says I can send them my offset bushing and they can machine something to fit. I have a #2 offset bushing in it now, what is everyone else running as far as the offset bushing in their Attack Triples and what damper are you using?

couple options..
replace the stocker with an ohlins
buy a top mount kit that uses an ohlins damper
hyper pro and toby i think both do a damper for this bike..

Most of you people are not capable of being your GD self, to damn worried about being politically correct.

I have Attack triples too and I'm using an Ohlins damper with this universal fork mount: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Works great and puts the damper out of the way. It won't fit with headlights, but that shouldn't be an issue for you.

What offset are you using on your triple clamp and do you also use a bottom link? Seems like some folks say the standard is a 4 but the set I have has a 2. Thanks.

I have a #2. I read about others trying out a 4 but it slowed turn-in too much.

Yes, I also have an Attack shock linkage.

For ceramic bearings, do you all still run the dust seal? Seems redundant if the bearings are sealed. I don't see how it would hurt but the set I have from World Wide Bearings did not come with seals. Oddly enough it also came with 7 wheel bearings, I am only seeing 5 on our bikes.

Your wheel spacers won't stay attach/in place without dust seals.

I have attack triples on an 07 and was suggested to use a Scottís damper with a specific mount that I purchased. If I recall i bought the bracket from attack but itís made by someone else.
