Hi all

Hi Russel, welcome to the forum, and well done on posting in the right section too, some idiots can't figure this out after years of being on the forum.
To answer your question though, NO, steering dampers are a band aid in general, rather sort your suspension first if you have a problem.
PS. And on that bike, sort the tyre pressures.

Did brands hatch with it on Wednesday....P&H at crawley did my suspension set-up back in January....first time on track with it ....thought it was great....pressures.......30psi front (hot) 29/30psi rear (hot) on conti-race attack (med front)/(endurance rear)......took abit to sort out TCS.......any more than setting 4 in sport mode and the bike seemed to not like it?..(throttle reponse was to slow etc would'nt give me the input/modulation I like...(not sure how TCS works etc?)...but by end of the day it was getting better by the minute etc.......cool on steering damper issue save the pennies of more bling......

regards

Russell

Great news on seeing another Dragster on the track mate, we have another loony on here called Dean, done a few track days on his Dragster so have a look around and maybe ask him for some more input. I'm far too tall far the Dragster.

Donsey is absolutely correct. I installed a steering damper on a Harley dyna glide as temporary ...patch.. of sorts until the shop could get him in to fix a blown out fork. He used steering damper as a permanent fix until one day the damper blew out (under too much pressure) on the turnpike at roughly 80 mph . Luckily he flew OVER the guard rail and into a grass field. He didn't get seriously injured but the point is from day one of the ...patch.. it was a dangerous situation .
