Dampers come with long stepped +8mm link arm mounted in reverse. This is most typical and can easily be changed by the user.
The Scotts Performance steering damper unit is a compact, fully adjustable, hydraulic shock absorbing damper that mounts to your steering head area right above your handlebar mount. By helping to stabilize the front end of your motorcycle, the rear of the motorcycle will track straighter allowing the rest of your suspension to work the way it was designed to. In addition, the Scotts Steering Stabilizer eliminates that sudden "thrust" affect of having the handlebars pulled from your hands after unknowingly hitting something unforeseen like rocks, tree roots or rain ruts. It has also helps to minimize rider fatigue and the dreaded arm-pumping situation that occurs while wrestling the front end of your bike. Once mounted, it dramatically reduces the unwanted phenomenon known as "Head-shake" that is commonly found on ALL off-road production motorcycles. This is more predominant now a-days due to the steeper head angles you find on production bikes.
Note: Large Knob shown in puctures does not come stock with the Scotts Damper but can be added below.
Bolt on replacement upgrade for 2023 KTM 890 Adventure R
The easiest high quality upgrade you can get for the 2023 KTM 890 Adventure R. It took all of 5 minutes to install, but took longer to remove stock damper. Has a very robust feel and very apparent quality. Have not ridden in deep sand yet with it but it was described as a "cheat code" for sand riding. Can't wait to get some off road in with this.
