Toby Steering Damper
In 1990, Toby developed an all new concept in motorcycle steering dampers, and was the first on the market to design kits suitable for all motorcycles, to be used both on the road and track for competition.
Toby steering dampers have the same advanced technology used in the Standard models as is used in the Titanium race dampers. The racing Titanium is currently the lightest steering damper on the market. (available for select models-please message us to check)
Toby steering dampers are manufactured with an expansion reservoir, to house the oil which expands when the friction generates heat in use.The expanding oil moves into the reservoir with the heat and returns into the damper body as it cools automatically.
The bodies of the steering dampers are made from aeronautic grade aluminum (AL7075) and are reamed to a tolerance of 5 micron. Polished after machining to a high gloss to reduce friction. The body is then anodized in an assortment of colors.
The steering dampers rods are made from CK45 steel and finished to a close tolerance. The ball joints are manufactured in Japan for Toby, all self lubing without the need for grease nipples.
The fork clamp, damper mountings and body straps are all machined from aeronautic billet aluminum and all pieces are machined before anodizing.
All parts of steering damper kit are manufactured in Toby workshops on CNC MORI SEIKI machining center to a high tolerance.
