Steering damper options - WASP not offering TMSD

Hi Guys

Todd at WASP just confirmed that they no longer offer a steering damper TMSD kit (top mount steering damper).

Anyone know of available options? Is there any benefit of a top mounted versus a frame-to-fork option apart from cosmetics?

Thanks.

JC at JC/PAKBIKES Sport Classic Specialties does the WASP steering damper now. I bought and installed one on my 2006 SC Monoposto just 2 months ago that I purchased from him. Contact him and he’ll set you up.

Did you have to raise the forks up much to get the attachment on the top of the right fork?

2008 Hypermotard 1100S.

No, mine fit just perfectly without any fork adjustment.

For a Sport 1000 I was quoted $688 to $775 depending if you want the Bitubo or Ohlins damper. More if you get parts anodized in specific colors. Contact JC for specifics.

Thanks LEXngton. Did the damper make much difference to your ride? Why did you buy a damper (head shake??) Did it sort the problem? Did you try anything else in addition?

Thats a factory setup where the frame has a damper mount. The OP is asking about aftermarket options for bikes that did not originally have a damper.
