some of you have bought damper mounts from me (or others) and had issues installing posts. here's a step by step install of the emig clamp on post (emig part number SPO-640-160). emig web site: http://www.emigracing.com/ ... here goes nothing: this install is on a 2002 640 adventure. different models require different mods to do the install nicely. with your steering head and top tripple removed slip the emig mount onto the top of your steering head. draw a line on your steering lock where the clamp bolt interferes: cover up your bike and all stuff that doesn't like steel filings, and trim the steering lock. install the clamp with a little dab of loctite on the screw (i like to use loctite 262). torque to emig specifications. while you're in there make sure to re pack your bearings, or replace them. they are not expensive, and if you're spending this much time and money to get your steering right it's not a bad idea to have some decent steering bearings. place the emig supplied dust cap on top. install your tripple clamp and fork legs (if you had them off) per ktm factory specs and torques. in the pic below you can see why emic encloses a button head bolt with their clamp kit. the factory hex head will hit the clamp! for this install i had to lightly grind the clamp so it would clear the post. the cable routing thingamadooey that mounts below the left front of your top tripple must be flattened to clear the clamp. i put this one on the vise and peened it with a hammer. then filed it a little to fit. if you look up underneath you'll see how close it is to the clamp. to get it to clear i had to get a button head bolt from the hardware store (ok... i took it outa creepers toolbox. thanks creepy ) i was unhappy with the post supplied with the emig tower so i made one of my own. it's unlikely you're going to be able to do that. creeper filed his emig post to fit and it fits very nicely! once everything is assembled this is what your pin, post and damper should look like here are a couple photos of the whole thing mounted.
