Recently, I purchased a chinese Scotts knock off steering stabiliser via ebay and want to share my experience.
Steering Damper With Mounting Bracket FOR Honda CBR500R 2013 2015 | eBay
I really did not expect a great deal for that small investment (costing around $140.00 AU) but thought as this is a universal dampener, I could also try it on my dirt bike.
Not sure about the internals but it looks identical and has the same controls as the scotts. In fact, I used the scotts installation and setting up instructions. It appears the the chinese don't understand the concept of copyright and think that it means copy right.
I searched this site trying to find anyone who may have used this before and fortunately @Joram144
was kind enough to provide some advice. Thanks Dave.
After a good 200km ride on the weekend, I was blown away by how stable to front end feels. The stabiliser takes away a lot of the small vibrations and I can only describe the feeling as the bike feels as though its on rails. I thought that I was just trying to convince myself because it was a new purchase but confirmed how good it was when I turned the stabiliser off.
With the front and rear shock upgrades this is another level of front end stability and well worth the $140.00 spent.
Installation was really easy. around 10-15 mins.
Remove the fork nut and washer(30mm socket)
Fit the stabiliser bracket.
Reinstall the washer and nut and torque to spec
Remove the 2 tank bolts and fit the link arm bracket. torque to spec (Use locktite)
Fit the stabiliser to the bracket with the 2 bolts provided. torque to spec (Use locktite)
Settings as per the Scotts website.
Base control valve: 8 turns back from full lock
High speed valve: 1.5 turns back from full lock
Sweep controls: !2 o'clock position.
I had to bleed the air from the fluid. (Found a youtube video on how to do this)
The stabiliser bracket needed to be slightly filed to allow for the steering to acheive full lock. (Photo attached)
