Pics of steering damper mounted




Try contacting Dan at Kyle racing, he may have the hardware you need to mount it. That's where I purchased the damper originally.

Check if your radiator hose is snug.
They loosen over time as the rubber takes a set.
The left radiator is notorious for this for some reason.
Probably due to gravity as the bike leans to the left on the side stand.

What's your coolant overflow tank level?
If you fill towards the upper limit with the bike upright, it tends spill out the cap somehow.
It happened to me when I found coolant residue coating the left side near the swingarm pivot.
Now I only fill to mid point between hi/lo marks when cold. No problems since.

radiator repaired....cost me $75 and so far so good...the fan had been rubbing against it cutting the 4 tubes near the top...they welded the holes and placed 1/8 inch washers on fan to give it clearance from rubbing....on the road again and steering dampner kit ordered
