Cheap steering dampers

No, you don't have to use those dampers that are designed for solo bikes (very expensive). I always use steering dampers that are for the old type VW transporter vans, you can get them new for 17 here in the UK = about $ 34 I think over there in the states? My friend Dave in Seattle, I helped him to construct his KTM outfit "HACK" he managed to get one quite local to him. See his outfit on KTM SIDECAR ENDURO USA, it should be on page 8 or 10 by now. You can clearly see his damper fitted onto the front forks.
