The steering damper is an important part for the safe use of motorcycles. It prevents the uncontrolled movement of the steering mechanism, known as wobbling, improving the safe use of motorised two-wheeled vehicles. In modern, high-performance motorcycles the steering damper ensures a safe change of direction and course stability. Steering damper function The damper is situated between frame and front wheel. A faster steering movement will cause a stronger resistance of the damper. In normal steering manoeuvres the motorcyclist will hardly notice the damping effect of this part. If the steering is suddenly impacted by a bump or an object on the road, the damper maintains a straight course. This is particularly important at high speed. The higher its speed, the bigger its momentum. Every interruption of the front wheel motion is being exponentially enhanced. Especially high-end motorcycles are difficult to control as a result. A steering damping does not only contribute to the comfort of a motorcycle but also to its safety. Steering damper construction The motorcycle steering damper is a common gas pressure spring like the ones you find on boot lids or suspension struts. It consists of a steel cylinder, gaskets, a bushing and the damping gas. A stronger and deeper compression of the steel cylinder and the bushing will cause stronger resistance of the compressed gas. The gaskets prevent the gas from escaping. A steering damper works in two directions. When the steel cylinder pulls back out of the bushing the gas builds up resistance as well. The damping function of this component therefore equally works both ways. In addition to gas pressure dampers, units working with oil pressure are available as well. Damper defects An experienced motorcyclist will immediately notice a defective damper. The motorcycle is considerably less stable. The steering movements are somewhat easier. A very obvious indication is oil leaking out of the component. Glugging noises when changing direction indicate a defective damper. If the motorcycle is used with a defective damper too long, the steering head bearing might sustain damage as well. Upgrading motorcycles with steering dampers The steering damper's construction should match the motorcycle. However, upgrade solutions are available for retrofitting older motorcycles with this feature. In any case the damper should be approved for use in public traffic. Many dampers are solely authorised for racing and cannot be used on the main road. Steering dampers for the car For a long time, damped steering was not common for cars. As vehicles became bigger and heavier, several manufacturers started using this component again. They have the same function as in motorcycles: stabilising the course at high speeds, damping the changes of direction and ensuring a better safety and comfort during driving. The damper is mainly used for high-end vehicles with 150 hp or more. Also in cars, the steering damper connects the steering with the bodywork. It is easily accessible and should be checked regularly. High-tech steering damping Meanwhile, in addition to the standard steering dampers, the industry offers high-tech solutions for maximum safety. With electronically controlled dampers the function and reliability of these components is enhanced. Electronically controlled steering dampers are as yet basically used for motorcycle racing. Their admission for public traffic is still outstanding. Steering repair with autopartspro.co.uk We offer an extensive range of cheap branded steering dampers for your vehicle.
