Steering dampner

Not sure if this is the right section, but o well..

Can you explain to me waht all they do? Is it worth the money i might have found a good deal on a new setup, just kinda wondering what the full effect is..
it'll be 350 shipped.\


[quote from r6 forum]
I've been working on this deal for quiet some time now. Introducing Sprint Dampers form Great Britain. For those of you that remember, Blueflame use to have their own line of steering dampers. These are the folks that made them. This is their newest model, the Sprint SXC (Sprint eXpansion Control) damper and kit. The new model has several features that include:

Sprint Clamping System
All SXC Damper Kits use this system to locate the damper to the kit. This ensures each kit and damper fit each model precisely, maintaining all clearences. The SXC saddle, also ensures no distortion to the main damper tube, ensuring smooth operation.

Sprint eXpansion Control
Sprint SXC Dampers are fitted with a unique expansion device which ensures mechanical pressure is applied to the damper during all working and temp. conditions. Also unique to this damper is a visual pressure gauge which shows that the damper has internal pressure and when it's in need of service.

Fitting Kits
Each SXC Sprint 916 style damper kit has been thoroughly resaerched and stylishly designed to integrate with your bike, enhancing stability without the need to drill holes in your bike. All SXC fitting kits are individually CNC machine etched with the relevant(R6) logos.

All components are anodised

CNC machined billet aluminum

Extremely simple to install and use

Easily adjustable while riding

Re: Steering dampner

Whats with you? I said I dont push my limits as hard as others which makes me a safer rider, cuz i know what pain is.. Im sorry if you cant figure that out, thats somthing you learn, not get taught in some class.

You like to feed off others dont you? let me guess you got picked on alot in high school? If i wanted smartass comments i would of asked in my first sentence, which also states i wasnt sure where to put this.... again tho you would of come up with somthing eles smart like "Why so you can start doing stunts?"

Re: Steering dampner

Some how i guess i didnt click post for my last post i made.....

Iv adtempted maybe 3 times to do a wheelie. all of which were slow speeds and noone aroudn to see me.

2nd, Keep ASSuming, i havent been hurt nor hurt anyone eles in the 4200 miles iv ridden. had one close call from another car coming over, but other than my hole puckering nothing happend, i controled the problem and solved it. safely.

And your "statistic" yeah anyone can say
"well 75% of all guys under 25 on a 600cc street bike who have a sliver jacket and birthdate is between jan-may have gone down with in there first year of ridding"

and squid spot? Maybe, but I enjoy it. But I know my limits and dont push them, the guys I went ridding with teh past two times got so far ahead of me i missed the exit they took.

not to mention the other times i was so far back i lost site of them for a few..

keep trying tho, your bound to get me some how/way... Ill be sure to let you know when tho.. that way you can add to your statistic...

till then, like the guy above, go get off on somone eles.

Re: Steering dampner
