no...not at all....alot of the Scotts are oil filled and more easily serviceable due to design of the rather squarish brick on top of a triple....the Ohlins units are usually gas charged and oil filled and of a strut type design that mounts between the triple and the tank.....at least of the more common ones I've seen...someone feel free to chime in and correct me if I am wrong!amullo said:Isn´t scotts simply an Öhlins-unit with another name?
I seem to recall seeing that info on another thread. Try searching for "Scott steering damper"
amullo said:Here is the info i was looking for.
The Scott is MADE by Öhlins, but maybe the internals are diffrent..
Good thing about the Öhlins unit is that it fits without any mods. And they ARE the best in the world (Hey.. I´m a Proud Swede! I HAVE to say it! )
zooom said:ummm...Scotts is Ohlins US division?....Hrmmmm...I am seriously doubting that based on style,make,and information on their website....but if Ohlins aquired them and are letting them run separatly...good for them.
anyways...here's the Scotts on a 916
and here is the special top triple you need for it...

Replacing the top triple clamp is not as daunting as one might think, especially on a Ducati. I'm talking 748/916 experience here. Your mileage may vary on other Ducati models. I'm certain that removing the entire triple tree assembly is quite a challenge, but it is not necessary to install the top triple clamp pictured in this thread.amullo said:OUCH!
Having to replace your triple tree isn´t that easy. It would be less expensive to go with a new Öhlins then getting all those parts and having someone do the work.. I wouldn´t mess around with exchanging triples, because I´ve never done it.
But taking one damper of and fitting another.. That i can do.

Removing the top triple clamp is pretty easy and ......... Gently tap on the under side of the clamp with a soft mallet and viola!, the top triple is off!
