Hi I know both Justin and Jason from Gear4 personally myself coming from the UK and a nicer pair of guys you will never meet.

Nothing is to much trouble and there's always a cup of coffee there for you.

I have not had to order anything yet but when I do they will be the ones I go to, I went into a local (to Jo'burg) KTM dealer and was told if I wanted to order they could get it in 2-3 weeks.

Bet they can beat that even if it has to come from Austria, they are one of the best around that area and reasonably priced.

That bike looks completely different with the Akros in my opinion and that Skid plate is very nicely finished, not sure I would go to the expense of a steering damper.

Unless you do a lot of fast road work, not an expert so forgive me if I am wrong does it make it easier to control in rough going?

Damper is a godsend on the SE! Had it on the WR450 previously,so just needed a new tower!

 BEER..."I drink it when I`m happy or when I`m sad. I drink it when I`m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. Trifle with it if I`m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it - unless I`m thirsty"

I strongly recommend a damper for this bike. But different strokes for different folks.
