Powerparts Adjustable Steering Damper

Postby 2014_SDR » Wed Mar 05, 2014 1:57 pm

For those considering the adjustable steering damper from the KTM Powerparts catalogue for the 1290

A Warning - Your ignition key steering lock will no longer work if you fit one. To fit it you have to adjust the bolts for the steering stops and as a result you can’t turn the steering enough to engage the ignition lock but if you don’t adjust the stop bolts the damper rod will go through the radiator.

Ouch, good catch. Makes me wonder if maybe that damper wasn't specifically designed for the 1290... But perhaps for the Adventure and they decided, "Eh, close enough."

Adventure does not have adjustable damper. Maybe they took it from rc8...
