hi everyone does anyone have or know where i can get a muzzsy steering damper fixing kit
I looked at other option Shep a few years back there really isn't much else apart from the 1 that bolts/replaces the ashtray which I don't think is a good idea, I looked at Sprint and a few others but since the 12 is old school chances of finding anyone interested in making 1 like a stock ohlims are remote .....you could always fit a couple of coil springs around the headstock ?....wouldn't look out of place on a green bike ? :thumbup:I'd be very interested to get a good conventional looking damper. I'm not getting rid of this bike anytime soon. It's handling so well now that I'm getting way too confident. I'm bound to get myself all crossed up sooner or later.
I'm not keen on the look of the Scotts ones that sit on the steering nut (not that I can find one here anyway) and I'm not happy with bolting a damper onto the ashtray.
I guess finding 20 of us may be a big ask. There's a lot of activity on the Facebook 12R pages. Maybe that could drum up a few more interested parties.
The last damper they supplied to DOA was made up of left overs and they charged him full whack for it !!! wrong spacers supplied along with different damper ? not good business practice at the end of the day, you wouldn't want a damper going wrong now would we .
Like Mauser said I got one by emailing Muzzy and asking for 1 they sent the kit for a single damper piston but the one they sent was a twin piston with an added bracket.Any idea what the price would be for the muzzy?
Why go though all that work, when you can just get a scotts? If you are worried about resale, you can always have a machine shop fill the hole later.Can someone tell me what the steering dampener brackets bolt to?
This kit doesnt require drilling right? Ima fab something up to emulate it if someone could just show me a good picture...
