Yamaha WR250X/R Parts > Scotts Steering Stabilizer and Mount Kit|
Scotts offers two different Steering Stabilizer Kits for the Yamaha WR250R and WR250X.... a Top Mount Kit and a SUB Mount Kit. We are running the SUB Mount Kit on our WR250R project bike and this is the one we currently offer for the bike, and feel it is the best choice for the WR250R/X.
"SUB" mount stands for Stabilizer Under Bars, meaning that the steering stabilizer is mounted under the handelbars. Their kit includes everything you need to mount the stabilizer on your bike, including new handlebar mount risers to raise the handlebars high enough to fit the Stabilizer. It raises the handlebars approximately 1" compared to the stock handlebar mount. Scotts machined this SUB mount to give you 2 possible handlebar mounting positions. Position 1 is in the stock location and position 2 is 10mm forward of stock. The only thing not included with the kit is oversize 1 1/8" handlebars, which you will have to purchase separately if you don't already have them (see Handlebar Recommendations below).
Fitment: 2008-2021 Yamaha WR250R / WR250X **
** NOTE: Works only with stock triple clamps. Requires oversize 1 1/8" aftermarket handlebars.
What is a Scotts Steering Stabilizer?
It is a compact, fully adjustable, hydraulic shock absorbing damper, that mounts to your steering head area near your handlebar mount. It helps control the natural tendency of the “left to right” front end movements known as “head shake” on a motorcycle. By helping to stabilize the front end of your motorcycle, the rear of the motorcycle will track straighter allowing the rest of your suspension to work the way it was designed to. The result in stabilizing the front end means more precise steering also. In addition, the Scotts Steering Stabilizer eliminates that sudden "thrust-effect” of having the handlebars pulled from your hands after unknowingly hitting something unforeseen like rocks, tree roots, rain ruts and potholes. It also helps to minimize rider fatigue and the dreaded “arm-pump” situation that occurs while wrestling the front end of your bike, especially in rougher terrain. Once mounted, it dramatically reduces the unwanted phenomenon known as "Head-shake" that is commonly found on ALL off-road production motorcycles and especially predominant on road bikes once you let off the throttle and the front end dives, causing that “wobble” sensation from increased head angles. This is more predominant now a-days due to the steeper head angles you find on production bikes. It helps keep your motorcycle going straight in the whoops, reduces head shake approaching turns, and smoothes out those rough sections by preventing those handlebar wrenching jolts.
Handlebar Recommendations: This kit requires oversize 1 1/8" handlebars. Because the Scotts handelbar mounts/risers raise your handlebar height about 1.5" you have to be careful with handlebar selection, otherwise you might need to replace cables, and it could cause triple clamp mounted handguards not to fit. On our WR250R project bike we didn't want to have to replace any cables, plus we have Zeta handguards installed with triple clamp mounts and still wanted those to work. So, we tried a few different handlebars and ended up going with Pro Taper Evo's in the "Steering Damper Low" bend which worked out great. Another good choice for a low handlebar would be the "Carmichael" bend in either the Pro Taper Evo or Pro Taper Contour handlebars. Obviously other handlebar bends may work, but pay special attention to bar dimensions so you don't run into issues with the height causing cable issues.
