I have a few questions about steering dampers. I'm really interested in getting one for my bike. I don't do track, and try not to speed too excessively, but I like the assurance and the idea of having one just in case.
How exactly would I mount a linear damper to the front of my bike? From what I've seen, most linear dampers mount to the top of the triple tree, similar to how a radial damper mounts. I've seen a few bikes (like the '14 GSXR 600) where the damper is mounted to what seems like the front of the forks. Not sure exactly where or what it mounts too, but that'd be preferred. I don't now, but if down the road I want to run a ram mount on my bike, I feel like having the damper up top will restrict where and if I can put a ram mount.
Taking from a specific brand, there is an Ohlins universal damper that is a lot cheaper than the one from my bike. The universal costs ~$400 while the one for my bike is $600. I ride a 2015 R6, so would the universal fit? What exactly am I looking for in a universal damper? There is always a size in mm when buying universal and I don't even know what that refers to.
