There is a bloke in Australia took a 1290 SD, and put the suspension from a 1190 adv R on it for trail riding. Mental build

I think he said it had a 21 stock so I guess he started with an R
he told me he was going with custom triples with adjustable offset (I assume various inserts) because he wants to be able to tune trail. Having a custom set made isn't that hard and probably takes less time vs dicking around finding the right OEM setup.
A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.
