ADVENTURE-SPECIFIC STEERING DAMPER
The adventure bike-specific RM3 steering damper unit has a wide range of adjustments with 22 position adjusters with an extremely easy-to-use shape dial. Taking care of the return to centre dampening is our very effective "Active RTC" valves which allow the rider to counter steering in a hurry just like a steering damper with zero damping on return to center, but when you need a damper that has less wiggle in the middle like on big high-speed straight roads or tracks the RM3 will hold you with a postive planted feel in your hands. It's like having both a damper with zero RTC and full damping RTC all in one unit that activates automatically when you need it.
With the rebirth of the Honda Africa Twin, riders are thrown back to their hay days with this impressive modern interpretation of an 80s favourite. It hasn't lost its charm, as this hugely popular bike fills a gap in the market, finding a balance between the light nimble 800s and the powerful yet heavy 1200s.

I just completed a 4200km trip along the Darling/Murray river system after fitting one of your steering damper to my Africa Twin and it preform flawless with everything that was thrown at it. We did everything from tar roads through to rutted black soil, soft grey clay to deep red sand tracks. I felt comfortable on the bike at all times with the way it handled. Some of my riding companions that did not have steering damper complained about how hard it was to ride in some of the tracks and are going to look into
purchasing one when they get back. I always believed that this is one of the best mods you can do to your bike to make it more enjoyable to ride. Thank you for making and supplying a great product."

Great investment / Easy InstallationBy: Phil R. - Calif. on 3 April 2022I bought this unit for my 2019 AT, mostly due to the easy installation, and not needing to add bar risers. Have used the big name ones in the past and loved them. Hoped this one would work as well. I'm very pleasantly surprised at the professional build quality, and it works perfectly. The Africa Twin tends to steer & turn well in the dirt, but when passing on the highway suffered from mild headshake at speeds over 65-70 mph. Even sometimes when taking hands off the bars and coasting at 30, the bars would start swapping. This damper totally solved the problem. I set the knob straight up or one click right of center, and it is amazingly stable at hi speed, even in high wind. Love it! In the dirt I turn it down to one click left of center so the bars will move with the terrain easier. It might have helped a little in the sand and off-road in general, but really happy with the cruising, especially at speed with wind. Night & day difference. 4k miles on mine now. Works like new. Only issue was my socket to tighten down the center steering nut was a little too thick-walled to fit in the base of unit. Needed to get a thinner socket to get full torque on that main center nut. - That's all.. Recommended!!
