Steering stabilizer tech question..

On my CBR600rr i've got a scott steering stabilizer. Yesterday i go to get on my bike to leave work which had been sitting in the sun all day. I notice the steering didn't feel as stiff as i had left it. For normal commute riding i've kept the settings at a medium/soft setting. It felt like it wasn't even on there even when i turned the adjustment.

When i got home i looked alittle closer and it looked as if there was alittle oil surrounding the black cap to the right of the adjustmend .

Is it possible that having sat out in the sun all day, it could have heated up and maybe blew a seal or o-ring or something?? If so could this be an easy fix?

I've never had one on a bike before this so i'm not really familiar with them.


Thanks for the input/ suggestions

-Kyle

This is the exploded view of the different parts. Has anyone else had this happen to them? Is it fairly common?

I also noticed on their website they offer servicing for these things if you want to UPS them into them and they do a 10 point inspection.

If nobody has anything, i might have to do this. But i'd rather not spend the money on shipping and however much that service might cost me.

Thanks again

I doubt those things are sealed amazingly well. You probably just thinned out the fluid far enough to allow it to bypass the seal.

U should invest in an Ohlins Damper...you can't go wrong with those! But if it's leaking oil, then your damper is shot. Send it in for service...

Scott's dampers ARE ohlins dampers.
