The KTM 690 / Husqvarna 701 RM3 steering damper kit is an underbar mounted system that also includes the 30mm bar riser adding a bit of extra comfort and a less bent-over riding position. Fitting this kit is arguably the easiest kit in our range to install. Installation is literally a 10-minute job with a basic tool kit.

The adventure bike-specific RM3 steering damper unit has a wide range of adjustment with 22 position adjusters with and extremely easy-to-use shape dial. Taking care of the return to center dampening is our very effective "Active RTC" valves which allow the rider to counter steering in a hurry just like a steering damper with zero damping on return to center, but when you need a damper that has less wiggle in the middle like on big high-speed straight roads or tracks the RM3 will hold you with a positive planted feel in your hands. It's like having both a damper with zero RTC and full damping RTC all in one unit that activates automatically when you need it.

Kit Includes:

  • RM3 Steering damper unit

7 Important Benefits of Steering Dampers

  • REDUCE HEADSHAKE – Reducing headshake without compromising suspension dynamics can only be done with a quality steering damper.
  • REDUCE WHEEL DEFLECTION – This is the biggest benefit of all, even if you’re bike had no head shake.
  • WEAVING IN SAND – Stop fighting the sand. Get a steering damper and plow through the ruts.
  • BETTER CORNER ENTRY – Steering dampers provide better control over the relationship between the ground the front wheel and the rider.
  • CREEK CROSSINGS – This is a variation on wheel deflection. The bike will stay on a more direct path through the creek and not deviate off line.
  • LESS FATIGUE – You will appreciate the damper when it saves you from fading or crashing on the last lap of the day.
  • NO DISADVANTAGE – Adjust the damping rate to your strength, speed, and surface in order to achieve the perfect feel for your bike.
