HyperPro steering damper on 11+?

Hello,

Is anyone running one on an 11+?
I'm trying to confirm if the mounting kit for 05-08 is going to fit on a 12 R.

Found a site and this is the closest mount i found listed for S3 but it mentions 05-08>

SPEED TRIPLE 1050 / 05-08> / SD MOUNTING KIT UNDER LOW. TR. CLAMP / SD STROKE 75 REVERSED / MK-TR10-B001

I'm thinking that should work but would love a confirmation.

The std forks are the same width as the ohlins on the R right?
Same lower triple tree I imagine?

I emailed the vendor and they were not sure and said factory closed until the 8th.

Appreciate any info.
Thanks!

Crap, having a closer look at my bike the brake lines go into a square block right near the radiator mount. Not sure if thats an R thing, an ABS thing, or an 11+ thing, but im starting to have my doubts.

I might not need one but i think i want one. Never had a bike without one and not sure i wana start. I'll accelerate hard and put a wheelie down crooked or something stupid.

Whats up with that tank slapper vid a few pages in then?
F**k all that!

Thanks!
I found that one after more searching. Prefer the HyperPro but the Matris seems nice and will fit.

^Since changing the gearing I'm now in the market for a damper; big time bar wobble on hard corner exits.

Tank slappers are generally the result of holding on too tight!
S3's don't need one.
