Ohlins Steering Damper for YZF-R1 Models

Recommended Posts

Take the dead spot out of the OEM steering damper’s stroke, reduce wobble and increase front end confidence with an Ohlins steering damper for the YZF-R1. This adjustable unit bolts in place of the stock item and requires no special hardware, custom fabrication or permanent modification to complete the installation. Just unplug the OEM unit, put this one in its place, adjust resistance as you prefer and you’re all set.


What makes these units particularly effective, when compared to stock, is the fact that there’s no free play anywhere in the 63mm stroke. This is due to the unit’s pressurized fluid design that exerts equal pressure on either side of the internal piston. In this way, resistance is consistent as you point the front wheel where you need. The result is consistent feedback from the front end which means more confidence for the rider. And of course, you’re permitted 16 clicks of adjustment from nearly zero resistance all the way up full-on.  Each click provides a noticeable change which makes dialing it in a pleasure.



Each kit comes with a precision-made steering damper unit, a resistor for plugging into the stock harness (which prevents an error code from being displayed), all required installation hardware and a set of easy-to-follow instructions.


These Swedish engineered and assembled steering dampers will improve front end feel and rider confidence.
