This is a presale only. Final damper units are scheduled for release mid January.
The long awaited 2nd generation Rottweiler Performance Steering Damper for the KTM Super Duke 1290 (14-16) is finally here.
The 1290 is a beast to say the least, and as expected, the stock damper is insufficient. The bike just wants to go fast and wheelie and setting down can be a nervous experience to say the least.
Enter the Rottweiler Performance Damper Kit. Machined from high quality US mil spec 6061 T6 aluminum, then type 2 black anodized to form a no compromise damper assembly with sex appeal added for good measure with gorgeous flowing CNC tool marks. Your Super Duke 1290 is one of the most beautiful bikes on the road and it deserves to be adorned with only the best.
Utilizing the industry standard Scotts steering damper with 'Road' valving, the Scotts stabilizer has every gram of adjustability you will need to stay in total control with overall valving adjustments, sweep control and what the Super Duke 1290 needs the most, high-speed-damping to handle those nasty set-downs with ease and wrangle that beast into submission.
Don't like the feel of a damper but want one to 'kick in' when the time is right? Unlike linear dampers that only have damping adjustability, Scotts dampers also have 'Sweep Control' and 'High Speed' valving. The sweep control will allow the degree of damping from center out, and the high speed damping will allow the rider to dial down the damping to almost nothing for quick steering, but then set the high speed circuit to only kick in when the handlbars are jerked away faster than the rider normally steers. This is INVALUABLE for setting down wheelies and pot holes.
The Rottweiler Performance SD Damper Kit comes complete with:
