'06 600 gsxr damper - September 9, 2007, 10:03 PM

Does anyone know if the OEM steering damper is adjustable on an '06 gsxr 600? It does not look like I can but just checking to be sure.

Also, do you install an after market damper w/ the OEM damper?

take out the weep hole screws and one cap at the ends...

drain the oil

get 80w oil

pour it into a bucket

submerge the damper...move it back and forthuntil the bubbles are all out.

reassemble while submerged,

now you have a nice damper but still unadjustable...most of the people don't know how to adjust their junx anyway...cheap alternative.

CANT ADJUST THE STOCK.....AFTERMARKET YOU CAN...REMOVE THE STOCK OR LEAVE IT....DOESNT MATTER, UNLESS YOUR AFTERMARKET IS A DIRECT REPLACEMENT FOR THE STOCK DAMPER, THEN OF COURSE YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE STOCK ONE.
