Hew,

just curious - why did you buy that as the first? Am asking because I don't expect Blighty to have massive amounts of (dune)sand, and this is typically where a s/damper is used for - and the reason why I've got one too.

But hey, never been on the island yet so I may well be helluva mistaken, dunno Wink

Long story short.
I have had the damper hanging in the garage for a few years so when a kit to fit it to the PIG came up it has to be worth a try.
Good news is that next to the damper was a pair of straight twinwall handlebars that fit with the kit and replace my old bent ones. That alone will make things better.
We do have sand dunes on the coast but nowadays the fun police stop bikes from riding on them. On the other hand we do have lots of wet slippy rocks and the damper is meant to help with that. If it gets in the way it can be adjusted to have virtually no effect so nothing lost. Bananatool
