Motorcycle Steering Dampers What is the purpose of a steering damper for motorbikes? To prevent steering wobble, of course. The stiffer the frame, and the more extreme the steering geometry of modern motorbikes, the greater the risk of vibrations in the chassis, and even dangerous handlebar wobble, if you have an energetic riding style. A steering damper suppresses these vibrations and ensures stability at speed. At Louis you can buy steering dampers from the renowned chassis and tuning specialists LSL.
