Steering Dampers / Stabilizers


Filed under

A motorcycle steering damper, or steering stabilizer, is an important piece of safety equipment for a motorcycle drag racer. The steering stabilizer helps to eliminate rider induced wobble, which can potentially cause a total loss of control and crashes. This wobble is also known as rider-induced oscillation, where the rider's attempt to maintain a grip on the handlebars and attempts to correct the direction of the motorcycle during wobble, inadvertently increases and exaggerates the wobble to the point of the rider being ejected from the bike. Click the links below will open a description of the motorcycle stabilizer on ebay in a new window.
