650L Sub mount Damper on RSW clamps?

Hi BRP owners:

I got the triple clamp from Ron suggested by this list. It is awesome. I need a damper but refuse to put it on top. Look at all that room under the bars:


I don't know why the setup sold for the CRF450 won't work.


I emailed Ron (no answer) and called Scotts. They were not interested in a sub mount on the L for RSW clamps. I thought that was odd in this economy.

Anyway, please check out the CRF sub picture and comment on the viability. It is an expensive mistake if it doesn't work. I didn't see anybody else post a success for RSW sub for the L.


Well. No suggestions.

I might as well get a cheap Ebay unit and build my own sub mount. I am thinking it will not be too hard since I can tap the flat triple anywhere. I can always fab my own post to the frame. A hack saw and file will keep me out of the bars.

I will post some pictures if the result is worthy.


My sub mount installation is complete.

Here is my account:


If I was unemployed, I would make some mounts for everybody. I have used the site below and got excellent work. I could probably cut the Scott price in half and get a perfect fit. The price break starts about 10 pieces.


A lesson in futility. Now RSW has the triple with the submount built in for $200.


Well I still give you an A+ for effort! I also like your cows and the ducks!

I don't see it on his website?

Don't see one for the 650r either

Ron sent me that photo. It might take him a while to update the website, but I would guess he would be happy to sell it now. Give him a call.

      So I don't seem to find my specific issue so here I am asking. 
      I have a 1997 Xr600r. It was recently re-jetted and has ran really well ever since until more recently it has begun to have this issue.
      Everything works fine. Kicks right away, nice and easy. Runs great, sounds great, purs. But when I'm downshifting and slowing down to a stop, if I let my hand off the throttle that's when it just dies. I found that I can counter this by lightly holding the throttle as I down shift (so I'm revving quite a bit during downshift).  But it hadn't done this before. 
      The only thing I've done that I suspect may have been an issue on my part was when I pulled out the engine to change the valve cover gasket and upon doing so perhaps when connecting the carb back to it, I may have missed something or made a crack in the boot? 
      Any ideas? Thanks

      Hello all,
      There's been a lot of talk about how to register a dirt bike in states that don't allow it.
      I just moved to North Carolina and for the first time in my life might be able to afford a bike. I've been dreaming about an XR650R for a long time, but they're not cheap. Plated bikes seem to be more expensive too. So here's my question, has anyone tried to plate a dirt bike by adding all the necessary features and having it inspected as a custom bike? Anyone know of another way I can plate an xr650 in NC?

      Hoping for some help before I throw in the towel and end it all!
      Engine starts fine, runs and idles well for +/- 10 minutes, but cuts out while riding once the engine warms up (175 - 185) and intermittently cuts out thereafter (any speed/gear). It will start up after 30 seconds or so (but won't run for long before dying again). No spurting or surging.. just dies.
      I've replaced CDI (twice), Spark plug, spark wire and coil, and most recently pulse generator. I do have a 41mm Flat side carb from a CRF (and it has more power than the old carb setup), breathing through a Uni filter. Also, sealed battery tender battery (hasn't shown low when trickle charged).
      What's next on the test/replace list? Stator maybe? Please help...
