It is advertised as fitting 08-16 model years. But it fits the 2017 perfectly.

Re: Ohlins Steering Damper 2017 R6

Have you guys considered going with the race mount Ohlins kit from Graves. Gets it out of the way. Buy the Graves mount for like $280 and the 68mm Ohlins damper for around $380 and your good to go, interferes with nothing and its neat and tidy

...but the only issue is if it is a street bike with the key, the new 2017 bracket mounts when the key switch is removed

.....just a thought

For probably all street guys this won't work. However there is a work around for the key issue.

I was under impression the graves kit won't work with the stock body work on the 2017 R6.
