Touratech Suspension Steering Damper, BMW F850GS & Adventure
A great upgrade for the stock steering damper on the BMW F850GS & F850GS Adventure, the Touratech Suspension damper features better damping characteristics and more adjustment range to fine-tune your handling.
Turbulence from an oncoming semi-truck, an uneasy feeling from knobby tires on pavement, instability in sand or gravel; these are all problems that can be easily solved by adding a Touratech steering damper to your BMW F850GS. While the F850GS is an inherently stable motorcycle for touring, when pushed hard off-road, loaded up with luggage, or riding fast in the twisties, it can start to show signs of front-end instability.
A steering damper effectively absorbs and dampens force transmitted from your front wheel to the handlebars, keeping the ride smoother and more stable. This can be any kind of force from the jolt of a big rock hit down to a slight shake or vibration from a side wind. You will immediately notice the difference the first time you ride behind a big truck on the freeway or push the bike hard on a sandy road.
The steering damper has 24 clicks of adjustment, so you can quickly dial in your preferred damping level depending on the riding condition and terrain. Use a lighter setting for general road riding, and then increase the damping level as you transition to gravel roads, dirt roads, or sandy two-track riding.
This kit from Touratech includes everything you need to install a steering damper on the front end of your F850GS or F850GS Adventure. There is no need to buy separate dampers and mounting kits. The installation is a simple bolt-on process and requires no removal of bearings, drilling, or modifying your motorcycle.
