Yea, you read it correctly.

As much as 65% discount on these Dampers.

They Retail for nearly $850

But, Now you can get one for nearly 1/3 rd the price.

This uses similar technology to the Magnetic Shocks in the New Ferrari's, Corvettes, and Caddy.

LED's show you how much dampening.
Easy to adjust with 2 Buttons. ONE UP and ONE DOWN.

Installation is very easy. Only needs to be wired to 12v. Power.

No matter the track conditions, no matter the road conditions, no matter the weather conditions, you’re out to motor on your bike as fast as man and machine possibly can. And we’re out to help – bringing a whole new level of control to the serious rider.
Using our exclusive magnetorheological fluid technology, and a closed loop control system, the Mark I Steering Damper immediately adjusts to adverse conditions, reacting to shock and vibration in under one millisecond, eliminating virtually all instances of head shake, and conditions that can cause tank slapping.
Reacting in real time, the Mark I Steering Damper gives you full-throttle confidence and control under any conditions.


Mark 1 Steering Damper
F3 Engineering has applied its magnetorheological fluid-based shock and vibration technology to a new commercial product: a steering damper for high-performance motorcycles. Forming a separate company named F3 MotorSports, it has teamed with 14-time Grand Prix National champion, Mike Himmelsbach and most recently with the Aprilia USA motorcycle team, to continue development of the Mark I steering damper.The Mark I steering damper addresses the specific vibration and steering control issues faced in high performance racing.
This F3 technological breakthrough was originally developed through a SBIR program awarded by Naval Air Systems Command (Navair) for the design and development of a side lateral engine mount for the E-2C Hawkeye aircraft. This engine mount mitigates both the harmful vibration caused by the plane’s turbine engines and the shock caused by carrier landings. F3 Engineering took this SBIR through to a Phase III.
