  1. Steering stabilizer for RD03 || RD07 ?

    Africa Twin
    Has anyone used a steering stabilizer on an RD03 or RD07? I've used Scotts on other bikes but the say they don't have a kit for the Euro AT. My RD03 feels skittish in the dirt and I'd like to dampen it a bit. Somebody across the pond must have made something for these bikes. TIA
