I have fitted an Ohlins adjustable damper and it can be clamped down a lot more that the OE unit. The recommended start point for the adjustment is 10 clicks and that is just a little stiffer. I set mine at 8 and it stops all wobbles even when abusing it on poor surfaces. A very useful addition. I got it from Italy in a week at a good price due to the strength of the pound. No messing with fitting kits, it just bolts straight on.

I was one of the early adopters of the HyperPro and can vouch for Walter, he always responded to my emails very quickly. Worth trying to send from a different email address (if you have one) for those having difficulty.
 As for the unit itself I've not thought about it much since I fitted it a year or so ago it's that good. However aggressive you are with the throttle or how ever bad the road surface you're on the bike is planted, no wobble, no twitching, it's rock solid.

Is this a custom bracket or can it all be bought elsewhere? I'm getting a bit of a wobble in some places I would like to sort out!

Yes it's custom and made locally in Australia. The Ohlins one will bolt straight on though, do a search and easy to find in here.

Thanks, found all about the ohlins but I like the idea of the reactive hyperpro one.

They will ship overseas no issue. It has more adjustment than the Ohlins but no idea which one is "better".

Any of you who have the RSC Hyperpro damper kit fitted want to share some more feedback on it's performance compared the the OE on the road please?
My finger is hovering over the buy me button, but I want to make sure its there is enough advantage to warrant the cost.

Brother,

I bloody love mine, specially for being the RSC, on the road, even with loads of damping dialled in (as in lots of + clicks ) the steering remains very light, if needed, the reactive component kicks in and just stops any misbehaving from the front end. It becomes even more apparent on track days where I like the steering very light combined with a sharper geometry, where the RSC keeps everything under control ;)

Hope it helps

Sure does, (but it may not help my credit card balance :164:)
That's just what I wanted to hear. I was looking at the RSC as I wanted to keep the lighter steering in most circumstances and have it tighten up when it's needed.
Thanks alot.
