I have them on mine. They are an early version of the Ricky Cross crash bars. No longer being made.

Maybe it's been asked before and answered (if so- sorry):


Steering dampers for the AT: Anybody have some advise? What works and what doesn't?

What works
A good quality (not the stocker) rear shock with the sag/ride height set up to your weight and load.

Makes the wiggles go away......actually just setting the sag correctly will go a long way toward stability.

I think I know what you're referring to- my AT in standard form felt like it had a hinge built in. But I'm already running upgraded rear (not adjustable, but nice and firm for my big but).

However- she starts tank-slapping on the sand at speeds over 120. Don't think that's got anything to do with the rear suspension.

Sand is a whole different animal. The steering geometry changes with speed, load on the front, condition of the sand, throttle application etc. There's lots going on.

If you can visualize what's happening...the front contact patch is being essentially rolled forward and upward from its normal position under the front tire.

This makes the trail measurement shrink (less trail) and creates a condition similar to having your forks almost vertical.

To compensate, try increasing your rear sag by 1 to 1.5 in....I know, sounds like alot. The bike wont handle very well on the harder stuff but it should improve the sand handling.

Stormforce should know about mounting a stabilizer if anyone does. Don't remember if he has one on his bikes or not. (Not that it would be easy to see with everything else he has up there )

The stock unit is a Showa... isn't it? Why you you say it's bad quality?

I don't have any shimming at the steering, even with the top case fitted.

Wouldn't you say, probably the steering head bearings+steering head nut torque adjustment (refered to as "steering preload adjustment) have more influence on the steering wiggle?

Maybe a good quality set of roller bearings and a correct preload adjustment at the steering nut will do the trick?

Now I see the "problem" lies when riding in the sand...

Different situation...

Top case fitted? Hmmm...

Maybe we're not on the same wave length here...


















But seriously- I think the normal AT is set up for a smallish Japanese gentleman weighing in at aroun 70kg +1 + 20kg luggage max. The standard suspension is not "bad", its just that I weigh 130kg without riding gear or luggage, so I need a bit extra for when the going gets tough.
