Steering damper setup for KLR650 rig?

Anyone care to show pics of how they setup their steering dampers (if you use one)?

I'm enjoying the heck out of my KLR with DMC Enduro sidecar, but really notice the front end shakes easy. I already have a steering damper that came with the sidecar on my Goldwing which I intend to use... just want to see how others have situated theirs.

Interesting - just took a caliper to measure fork leg diameter... at the upper fat area (of the lower fork leg) where the seal is installed (and I have an Eagle Mike fork brace fitted) the diameter is 58 mm. Lower down the leg the diameter is 48-50 mm - not round... over much of the leg. Easy to see the legs are cast and not finish machined in the lower area, but I'm surprised to see a 2 mm ovalization. Kind of makes it more challenging to find a clamp that'll fit!
