Enduro damper on 1260PP. It fits!!

Just in case 1260 owners are wondering if a damper can be installed on a 1260 here it is. I wasn’t crazy about the Ducabike one that mounts on the tank, so I did some research and with help from this forum (Thanks Tim) I managed to fit the Enduro 2016 damper on the 1260. No mods or special non oem brackets needed. Straight bolt on.
Next step, I’m debating to see if a damper from a sport model or street fighter will have a slightly stronger damping since most likely it will slide right in the clamp or see if a Hyperpro would fit since there is one with a similar mounting bracket.
Fist picture is oem enduro damper on 1260 and second pic is the Hyperpro damper.

Anyone have any idea if this would be able to be mounted on a 1200 DVT?

It should. The parts I used are from the 1200 enduro model.

Nice, thanks for the info!

The DVT doesn't *need* a damper so to speak, but I never really thought about whether it had one or not as all of my previous 3 bikes had one from the factory so it did catch me off guard one day when I was riding "at pace" over some hills and had a tiny tank slapper when the front went light.

Same here. I haven’t needed one on this bike but it’s nice to have for “in case shit happens”.
For me I’ve always had dampers on all my bikes and tend to run them on the very soft side. Most ÷hlins Ive had I ran then at 6 clicks tops and GPR set to 2. I also like the feel of having somewhat resistance at the handlebars when that front wheel gets light.
It could be that for my likes the stock one could be just enough and won’t need an aftermarket one. Still haven’t test rode it to know. But I’m very happy it fits and it looks like an aftermarket one like Hyperpro will fit too. The Ohlins one might be too thick.

If you have your parts list handy I'm sure that would be appreciated by many... this question has come up periodically over the years and the only aftermarket options were pretty invasive so I suspect this will be a popular thread for periodic resurrection.

Heres the parts list. Number after part name is the quantity you need.
I have found improvement using the OE damper off the Enduro version. I have felt more confident in flipping the bike left/right being a bit aggressive. Just keep in mind its not adjustable and its not hard. IMO its just enough, basically it doesnt interfere with handling making it feel hard, but when something comes up such as a bump/hole or you ride a bit aggressive, its there.
