Damper or dampener.. not dampner.

Anyway basically what a steering damper is there for is to prevent tankslappers. That's when the grips start flying back and forth from full lock to full lock (and thus slapping the tank).

So thats all it does, is protect your tank from the handle bars? Thats weird cuz every body allways talks about how crutial they are en crap.

OK G child Stan. A steering dampener works like a remote control car. when you turn it upside down and manually move the wheels then let go the wheels go back to the origional position.

The level of resistance is increased the further the shock moves. they were engineered to keep speed wobbles and tank slappers from happening. the reason everyone talks about them is because when you come down from a high speed wheelie, it's easy to not be 100% centered with the front wheel and that when shit happens.

so basically the best way to put it is that its a resister that is designed to keep the front tire straight but still movable under more force then with out it. Look at the new CBRs they get stiffer the faster you go.

This site works on the principle that the only stupid question is the one that doesn't get asked.

I think of steering damper as an insurance policy. They really help you control the bike when you accidentally get yourself into some S***
Nicely put.

They also let you ride way more aggres. If your pushin it and you have a bobble, a good damp. will save your butt.:D

And welcome.
