Everything needed was in the kit. The instructions were reasonably clear - written in Engrish. It was fitted in about an hour.

The sellers name is streetacc, he is fairly new. But he left feedback right after I paid and his shipping cost was very fair.

I had to determine the Shindy part number of the damper from the application charts to match make, model and year. Then find a listing for that part number.

EDIT: Almost forgot. A sponsor here, Todd at Cal-Sportbike also sells these Shindy dampers.

Tks alot bro...but i would like to get scotts damper...but my fren say top mount no gd cos is nt as gd as side mount....holdin on to the forks rather than the top mount...

The damper installs on the center triple nut. would it be the same. I've also established that the rotary dampers mount to the front tank bolts and the older bikes have 1 hole and the newer have 2.

Why would you want a dirt bike damper?

I fitted a Shindy to my '93. It goes across the bike in front of the forks just under the ignition switch.

Mike (CTSMoto) said he makes custom mounts for the rotary damper to fit the early 'blades.

Anybod make a rotary damper for a 94 900rr

I've been looking and there are plenty for 98-99 and scotts makes one for 96-97, but no one makes one for 93-95. As a matter of fact I can't find anything but a side mount damper. I wanted a top mount but after searching got interseted in the rotary. But I can't find either for a 94 bike. I didn't think the bikes were that much different. Anybody can help?
