Steering Damper

Hi All
Dose any know of an upgrade to the original steering damper as my one dose not make any difference hard or soft and I get a lot of head shake on acceleration.
I would like to keep the same fixing and setup as standard but just change the damper.
Cheers
Craig

I guess it is a Dragster RR?
I had a lot of headshake when I got the bike, and the damper was not effective at all!
After I set up the dampers on the bike properly, the headshake is gone, and the steeringdamper is doing its job.

He is talking about setting your front and rear suspension correctly. Look up setting static/dynamic sag if you want to try it yourself, or take it to a suspension specialist, they will be able to set it for your weight, or recommend harder/softer springs if needed.

We're all here, but we're not all there.

Hi I have had all the suspension set up by FTR and the bike handles a dream, but still gets a head shake on aggressive acceleration.
On my bike if you turn the dial from hard to soft it make no difference to the steering resistance.

Is the standard CRS unit serviceable ?

Thanks
