    steering damper

    hi guys, I bought a steering damper off ebay that the guy had fitted to a tuono, so i fired the question if it had everything necessary to fit to my 05 rsvr and he said yes. It arrived today and I can't for the life of me see how it would fit, the instructions only cover replacing a damper so does that mean i'm missing a mount or something?? If thats the case where would I get one from??

    many thanks

    there are no brackets for the stering dampers if you look on the frame on the head stock there is the first mounting point for the body of the damper (best to look with the nose fairing off)

    also there are 2 mounting points on the bottom yoke too on on the left and one on the right for the push rod

    think there held in place with 6mm bolts

    head stock is right at the front of the bike between the top and bottom fork yokes

    when i fitted my arrow damper to my 06 rsvr all i had to remove was the half circle plastic thing on the bottom yoke which is held in place with 3 bolts

    once thats out the way you can just see and feel where the mounting points are

    only reason i said remove the front fairing was so you could see it all really clear
