Hi Ben

Look at the low profile types, the space is limited and the servo can hit the speedo, so a low profile servo is usefull. The SAVOX 1251 is a favourite for this reason.

Note that with this servo the spindle centre is further back than "standard" servos, so I had to change the ball links on the steering dampers for longer ones, to stop the dampers reaching the end of travel and going solid.

Generally a 1/10th TC steering servo will be OK, think the torque is more important than speed in bikes.
