Every other heated grip I've had became uncomfortable on high after a few minutes. I bought the dual stars based on glowing reviews here in Advrider.

Is it the grounding or what?
I guess you have to connect it directly to the battery for a test. However, I think the acc cabling is really thin, so I'm not surprised.

As did I, they totally suck. I wired mine straight back to the battery, they worked brilliantly for about 2 weeks last winter. Troubleshooting results show good fuse, all wiring still ziptied to the frame and in tact, rocker switch still functioning.

I only purchased them because I'm not fond of bulky gloves.

The heat failed so I bought THESE and got used to the size.

SE steering dampener

Is there one in the powerparts catalogue?
Does it fit on the stock triple tree?
Is there any other option (if the answer on the above is negative) that does not require a change of said triples?

Otherwise, what are my options???

many thanks in advance

This is the only one that seems to exist (and I'd love to be proven wrong). I put one on the SE about six months ago.

I am not aware of a bolt on without having to replace the triple.

First paragraph...

With another first for Ralle-Moto we have raised the bar (well we didnt actually raise the bar at all!!) with design and innovation in our new LC8 steering damper, after hours of development we now have a great steering damper concept for the KTM LC8 990/950 ADV - SE - SM - SMT to comply with a very specific design brief to fit onto the standard triple clamp.... Yes that's right no need for a new top triple clamp!


Y'all are welcome. I'll be here all week...

They are not sure if it will fit an SE with a Safari Tank. I will be finding out early Nov when I drop in there to get them to fit the Dampner with the Safari Tank on.

The Scotts on a BRP works with the Safari on mine. Tight fit for the tank but I get it on. Know that other people have struggled a lot.

Scotts Damper w/Scotts Triple clamp clears my Safari tank by at least an inch.

Good source for SE plastics? I've searched around, my conclusion is the OEM stuff is all we can get. Any other options? Do the Supermoto shrouds fit?

Sorry to keep posting here, don't really want to start threads for this small stuff.

v8,


There have been inmates, in the past, who have given the same apology. And, it is completely unnecessary.

In fact, you are using this thread exactly as I hoped it would be used, when I asked the first few questions, over a year ago. Here are the first two paragraphs, in my first post, in this thread...

I have been in the OC for a little while now, and noticed that (to the best of my knowledge) there is no specific thread where an SE owner can ask a quick question or two (short of starting an entirely new thread for each and every subject). I have posted a coupla' of questions in the 950 SE Photo Thread, but never felt right about doing it.

When I owned my DR650SE, I could go to the DR650 thread, and ask about almost anything. Within five minutes, there were usually three to four responses (like the OC, great bunch of guys over there). So, I wanted to start a similar thread, in the OC, where SE pilots could ask a question or two...whether they were in the middle of a project (and encountered a problem), or just wanted the SE gurus to weigh-in on a strange behavior or issue...

So, as far as I'm concerned, ask-away.

There are some REALLY great folks here. And, they have saved me a lotta' time, on more than one occasion. I hope you have as gooda' luck, with this thread, as I have.




As far as plastics, I know of no aftermarket source. But, that's just me. Perhaps someone might have a source.

For me, Powersports Warehouse has always had the best prices on the high-dollar stuff...

http://www.powersportswarehouse.com/

And, I know that the SM-R is, probably, the closest to the SE. However, I don't know if the plastics will fit.

Hope this helps...
