After looking at many threads on the net I decided to do my own How-to on the HyperPro RSC damper.

Head nut and washer

** You could use the stock washer... NOT!

After taking off the Steering Stem nut remove the washer.
Use the supplied washer, which has a raised lip for the head brace bearing to set on.

Mount this puppy....
Remove the tank screw
Put the supplied washer on the steering stem (with the raised edge up)

Start the assembly screw into place (do not tighten, leave loose)
synch down the steering stem nut.
**** Verify that the assembly stack has no gaps between the peices. If you install the brace upside down.... there will be binding.

Let's rap it up... hipp hopp

Install the piston at 48mm (see pick for measure points).
** push the unit in until the reservoir hits the clamp... pull back a hair.

4mm hex, do not strip the screw.

Connect the rod using the screw, washer, and o-ring... in that order.

Final touches to support the guys and gals that bring the products to market.

This product made a hell of difference in bumpy turns.
I have spot that has a 1/4 mile sweeping turn that is bummmpppyyyyy as all get out. speeds between 80 and 110....

HyperPro set on 9 clicks and WOW... I hit 116 and felt no twitching.

So I let the on-lookers know that I ride HyperPro.

Well, I got my Hyperpro on last sunday. My first ride with it on, I hated it. The bike didn't want to turn and wanted to wander off on it's own. I was all over the place. So, I rechecked my installation to see if I had something installed wrong since I had heard so many good things about this damper.

I found that my left fork tube was sitting about 2mm higher in the triple tree than my right one. It had been this way the entire time I've owned the bike, but I guess I just never noticed it since the damper-free steering was so easy to move. The only thing I had ever noticed, was a very slight pull to the right if you let go of the bars while coasting down. Had always thought it was just my weight balance on the bike.

I fixed my situation and leveled out my fork tubes and have been riding all week with this thing and it is definitely the BEST mod I've done so far. A guy I work with has an 07 GSXR750 and he says my hyperpro on setting 1 is more stiff than his stock damper. I'm still slowly and gradually getting more comfortable with it as it is different than the stock no-damper I had become used to. I started at the first click, I'm now comfortably riding on the second click.

Anytime you add a quality peice of equipment to your bike.... it will highlight any week part that is connected to it. :)

It is good to here thaat the fix was easy and not something more serious.

Great report.
