Ktm 640 steering damper
« on: January 16, 2016, 10:26:57 am »
Can anyone tell me if a steering damper on the 640 makes a difference and if it's worth it? Considering a rally lite build.

I don't think the 640 has a stability problem. However, I would think that if you're going to do a rally, a steering damper will save you a lot of energy on those long days in the sand. Especially because the 640 rally build is going to be a little heavier than a 450 rally. I just bought one a week ago, but I haven't installed it yet.

What else have you got planned for your build?
