Got my Hyper Pro Damper installed...

Woohooo!!! Thanks to Ryan from this board, my bike is now steering damper equipped!! No more hair rasing moments strafing through Mulholland!! Though my bike never actually "slapped," I was always worried about tight, bumpy corner exits... and the fact that my bike weaves at the drop of a hat with the Dunlop D208GPs.... LOL!! I've always like the more consistent feel of an Ohlins damper (as on my Tl1000R), but the Hyper-pro sure brought me peace of mind...

Re: Got my Hyper Pro Damper installed...

I just got my Hyper Pro on. It was easy to install and the fit and finish seem excellent to me. I had a semi-slapper two weeks ago and that was all it took to ante up the dough.

Haven't ridden it yet with the dampenerener but it sure looks cool!

Cool, you've got one of their newly designed ones! Looks great!

Re: Got my Hyper Pro Damper installed...

Hm.. my factory damper could be a little more effective.. looks like an interesting alternative to the Ohlins.. what do they run and how has the *deal* on them?

Re: Got my Hyper Pro Damper installed...

I've been using a Hyperpro for more than a year now and it works great. I've felt the bike try to tankslap and the damper definitely does its job.

Another great site to visit.

WOW....that is the NEW one huh? My HyperPro dont look like that. When did they update the design?

Looks pretty nifty....

Re: Got my Hyper Pro Damper installed...

The old one's use to leak alot. Well, down here they did anyway. They used to tell us that they didn't have seal problems anywhere in the world, except here. THEN they changed them with the expansion reservoir. Let us know how it goes, coz with the old model, we used to call them Hyperleak. New one does look heaps better though.

Oh, they had seal problems here, too, about 2 years ago. I have a 7 year old Hyperpro on my Duc that has never leaked. I had 2 that leaked on my 929, but they replaced both at no charge to me, even though one was a couple of years old, so I have no complaints.

Re: Got my Hyper Pro Damper installed...

I have a hyperpro on my 954, I also had one on my 929.
the 929 one started to leak after it was about 13 months old, the Australian importer told me I would either have to pay for a repair or they could sell me a new one at half price and that's the best they could do. After an email to Hyperpro, telling them that I frequent several motorcycles forums, and I know about their leakage problems, the dealer was told to supply me a replacement free of charge the net can be a wonderfull thing sometimes

Re: Got my Hyper Pro Damper installed...

Wow! I had never heard of leak problems ... until the day after I get mine installed. I'll let you guys know how it goes.

I got mine for about $400 shipped. They have gone up considerably in the last two or so months due to the Euro-Dollar exchange rate and the new design (at least that's what Starcycle said).
