A guy that I work with (one of our engineers) rides and R1, and he had a Scotts, as did all of his R1 buddies (five in total). Two of them had the damper rip righ toff the triple clamp in a violant slapper (obviously they resulted in dcrashes). They have since tossed their Scotts in the garbage, and installed Ohlins dampers in their places. I have no idea if they all made some kind of installation error (or at least the two that crashed). The Scotts has the on-the-fly adjustability which I like very much, but I honestly think it is butt ugly (an abomination in fact IMHO), and I know that Ohlins are top quality stuff. Yes, I have seen Ohlins mounted on 929s already (a la 996), but do not know if it was with a custom bracket or not.
