Question Advice - "Universal" parts

I have found universal adjustable rear sets and steering dampers on Ebay. Just wondered if somebody could cast over an eye on them to tell me if I could put them onto my bike? 98 Firestorm.

Rear Sets

Steering Damper

Both can be made to work but you will need to fabricate your own mounting plates\brackets as neither is a "bolt on" product.

Thought as much, thanks for answering anyway.

I don't suppose anybody has any idea what I'll need to do to mount the steering damper? Where it will need to be mounted etc? I have only ever seen them in life mounted on the top yolk, but, I'm sure I've seen a pic of a bike on here with one mounted on the side of the frame (I think) How was this done?

for the rear sets, they look very similar to late model GSXR fitting components. I've got a set in my garage that I hope to use at the track, but am tinkering with some type of bracket to attach them to. They will not bolt directly to our model.

Ha ha - "Laytona" - I love it. I ended up sourcing a used Daytona/Shindy form a zx6r and making my own bracket - you'll also need a 41mm fork bracket. I sourced both on ebay for about $50 all in.

I have ordered this damper recently, it doesnt look of feel too bad.

It's supposed to be 7 step adjustable? Not sure it really is

Indeed you need to fabricate something your self.
41mm clamp for fork is easy part. you can BUY those.

Attaching it somewhere close to the radiator may prove more challenging.
Will work it out this winter.

Recently found this one on ebay, but that one is bent.
Maybe you can copy bracket from it?
