It's tough being an early adopter of a new bike...

I liked the Bitubo damper but now would like a Gubellini, but guess what?

There is not a mount on the stock 848SF so the current products don't work.

Hopefully these companies will sort out a mounting solution..

Post back if anyone gets one working well on theirs.

If you like the Gubellini, order one up and just have a machinist make the required bracket and/or arm........if you get the geometry anywhere in the vicinity of the proper location it'll be fine, it's not a close tolerance sort of thing.

(Just make sure you leave plenty of room around the tank....)

And maybe the mount will work with other Dampers (like the Gubellini)?

has anyone tried to drill out the 2 rivet things under the ignition cover? The SF1098 steering damper has bolts in this location, but the SF848 has 2 rivet things?

If there are threads underneath the rivets, then it should be possible to mount a bracket fairly easily.

Ray - Have any pictures of what rivets you are talking about?

It might be possible to side mount a damper between the frame tube and a fork tube.

There are types that are center mounted and should work. I personally like the look of the ones that are a tube type shock.

I have a Scotts center mount style on my KTM and it does work well.

Looking at this schematic it looks like the 1098 steering stabilizer is mounted using part# 33 and and a couple other pieces of hardware. Might not be such a difficult issue to create the same condition (via parts) on the 848SF.

Anyone have their tank off yet to see if there are many differences to the 1098SF based on the attached image?

Here's the view of the 848SF ignition assembly. Parts 46 and 38 and how they share the same space is a bit confusing but it looks like we should not have too much trouble fitting either the stock stabilizer or some aftermarket model.

The Ohlins that moto recommended looks pretty good at this point.

If you want to try it, give [email protected] an email or call at 916.369.2509. You can return it if it does not fit.

If it needs slight mods, Nick might be able to get modifications made so it will work.

Looks like you'd need the bracket and the two special screws to attach it, and the lower half of the handlebar clamp.

Nice, let us know when it all arrives and you tackle the install! What damper you planning on using? How do you plan to remove those 2 rivet things under the ignition cover? Drill out the center? I wonder if it has threads underneath to screw in new studs.

I'm going with the Bitumo Damper as it is a bit smaller than the Ohlins and also the cost is less since it's already cost $200 just to get the bike ready to accept a stabilizer.

I'm not so sure those are rivets and expect there will be some disassembly logic once the process starts. I'll post details of the install once the parts arrive.

Those are probably caps to cover the screw heads to prevent tampering.
