Steering Dampers for Slabbie 750's
Had a quick search on the site for relevant steering dampers for 1st Gen 750's, but there doesn't seem to be any mention of these things being added to that era bike.
I have made a few mods to my bike for the track, rims to 17's front and rear, fitted a Yammie R1 shock to the rear (this has done wonders), moved and lightened the type of battery, coils and electrics, but most importantly to this issue, changed the front end complete for a '93 GSX750f.
There aren't any problems with the bike in handling anywhere except when there is a fast drop in the track at full noise or on a quick change of direction when, also on the gas. As the front lightens up, a reasonable head shake is caused. This ceases once the tyre contacts the track again, but its a little disconcerting, could almost be a tank slapper in any other circumstance.
Anyway, I was thinking, a steering damper would alleviate the issue so have been searching.....here, with no luck.
