scotts steering stabilizer install question

Recommended Posts

I installed the scotts on my 04 CRF 450 today. The pin that slides into the tower when pushed down was able to go beneath the bracket that it fits up into. I added more grease to give it some hydraulic action and now it doesn't seem to float as much. Is this correct? or is it unlikely for the pin to move down enough beyond the bracket?

Also, what adjustments seem to work the best for everyone?

I am riding trails and open desert terrain.

Thanks in advance, I am excited to try this thing out

Thanks

My tower pin came with a ring that fits snugly to adjust and maintain pin height. If you greased the pin it's probably binding a little because of the type of grease and/or the tolerance is so close. I've always left mine dry, but tried to keep the tower area clean. Grease will attract dirt very quickly. I normally keep mine 7 to 8 clicks out, depending on the conditions. Hope this helps. Enjoy your new stab :thumbsup:

Try various settings and you will soon get an idea of what you prefer. I run 2 or 3 clicks out on high speed, whooped out sand trails and back it off to 8 to 10 for the tighter woods.
