I got on eBay Friday and saw a steering damper on there for $59 shipped. I bought it. Saturday I get an email stating that I have $9 refunded from the guy I bought it from. Monday I get the tracking number and Tuesday I have it in my hands. I mounted it in right around 5 minutes of labor, 10 minutes finding tools! Its not straight like I'd like, but I need to move it around to get it set right. Has different levels of dampening but I think it is going bad. Sounds like the fluid on the inside is catching air bubbles. Not sure if thats good or not being that this is my first steering damper on a bike sooo... I'm not sure what brand it is either, it has W.L.R. engraved on it. Not sure but some other people bought the same things on eBay for different bikes and it was a Sprint damper with a WLR mount. Hmmmm Anyways, here are the pics...

Oh yea, almost forgot. I got the bixenon HID's for my bike. I put the ballasts under the dash panel things on the side and the lights work great. Nobody has flashed me yet and the high beams are really bright. Its the h4-3 telescopic style. I got them from vvme.com. I already had ballasts so I just bought the bulbs. Good quality for $50... Heh, no pics of that yet and this damn cat is licking my fingers as I type... WTF?

Can you not get the damper re-built? There must be companies around which re-build them. :think:
