My k100lt Trike could do with a steering damper. Has anyone fitted one to a K100. Any info and Pics would be great.

Cheers

If you swap in a front end from a K100RS4V, K1 or K1100RS then that has mounts for a steering damper.  However, it's a rather major endeavor since you need to swap everything including brake master, lines and calipers as well as wheel, forks, fork trees etcetera. On the plus side you end up with better forks and much better front brakes.

Some K75's came with an integral damper in the steering head. Should be something you could order from Motobins etc. Worth considering
