Think of it as a shock absorber, is slows down the handlebar movement, which can make for a more comfortable less twitchy ride, It can also under the right circumstance, help control the dreaded "tank slapper!" on our Hyper's this is a good thing. Aloha AlexAnyone have a good explanation of what the damper actually does? I've never had one. Thanks!
I have used scotts and gpr. Scotts is the way to go, I have one on my hyper and love it. I am less confident without it.Hi guys, have a few questions regarding the steering dampers...
Which damper is a better one... the rotary of the "usual" tube style? What can you say about the Bitubo dampers? Are they any better or worse than the Ohlins or Scotts?
before you start with the damper, try having your suspension set up. I have never felt the need for a damper on the hyper. I have the typical mods done like ECU, box, 2-1, etc. I accelerate quite hard often too.I do feel the tank slap quite a bit on acceleration. I was wondering if the damper would correct that.
You could always hold on a little less tightly and steering would self correct...is it me or why haven't I had a tank slapper too? Slight twitches and wobbles but no big side to sidey slapper...which in English could be rude..I do feel the tank slap quite a bit on acceleration. I was wondering if the damper would correct that.
