Steering dampers

Postby steveo9913 » 29 Jun 2016, 17:09

Hey guys, I'm racing a CBR600 and keep getting headshakes when I'm really pushing on, I think a steering damper will help but don't want to bankrupt myself in the process of buying one. Anyone got any recommendations for a reasonably priced, decent quality unit?

Fwiw I've got a Hyperpro on my 675, not the cheapest option but not Ohlins either.
I used to get headshakes, and haven't had a single one since I fitted it.

I had a hyperpro on my old bike, worked well. I think the GPR v4 is the best available if you can find one on ebay.

GPR isn't cheap though

What sort of price you looking at?

Cheers for the suggestions guys, the hyperpro one was one I've looked at so maybe that's the one to go with, it's roughly the right price but didn't know anyone who's used one (until now). GPR are meant to be the dogs wotsit but I can't afford that, kwacky the one you sent is about on point £ wise!

I had a GPR and it's a fantastic piece of kit, but they hold their price so even second hand ones aren't cheap.

I'll keep an eye out for any dampers that come up for sale
