Steering Stabilizers Explained

I've seen in the past some people ask what does this or that do how does it helps... I found a video explaining stabilizers, hope this helps someone.

Quote:
Oscillation is a desireable action... if you're on a swing at the park. It's a nasty action at 75mph on a motorcycle, and nasty at 160. We spoke with Jason DiSalvo's 2009 AMA Crew Chief, Michael Tjon Sien Kie, about "head shake" and the steering stabilizers, or dampers (or dampeners) used in keeping the two wheels of a motorcycle pointed in the same direction. Naturally our title sponsor, SportbikeWrench.com, has steering stabilizers for your motorcycle.

I was always told if your suspension was set up properly you dont really need one for track/ street use.

It's more about steering geometry and a shortened wheelbase that not only makes ss bikes able to turn quickly, but at the same time at the edge of being unstable. The damper helps with the near instability
