Hi all, I need some help..

I am building a trackbike out of a SP1 and I need to fit a steering damper. I have quick release on the tank and fairing stay so want to fit a linear one I have.

I know I need to drill the frame and insert a Rivnut or get a block welded on. Has anyone here done it? Any advice, measurements etc?

I really do not want to screw this up so any help is really appreciated.

What about using a Scotts rotary steering damper instead?
They work very well, with variable sweep settings plus Hi/Lo velocity damping.
